Yes today I am feeling much better. Yesterday was a depression day. Today is an inspirational one.
Oh good, but it must be frustrating, it isn't like you can schedule the days you are down. What did your inspiration lead to?
I wonder what our dear Gordi's retort to you will be? I always look forward to these things ya know.
I know so do I, but he usually doesn't take the bate if I am too subtle. We'll see. I miss a little friendly banter in here.
Hope you are well my friend!
Thanks for asking. Fortunately I have tomorrow off too. Although I don't usually mention it I am in quite a bit of pain these days. It seems
to get aggravated by stress that is an obvious factor these days. I have cellulite, yes I know people think it is a harmless ugly skin condition. But
even though I am of normal stature it has decided to affect various surfaces the past two years.
It is terribly painful. If I try to massage it the pain remains in the area for a long time, even the least touch hurts.
I think it is stress related as is the now frequent joint and muscle pain.
Apart from that crap I had a really nice day.
I went for a morning swim with the dogs. The parking space by the lake was congested with vehicles, one of them a drilling crew. I angrily found a
parking spot and only dressed in a bikini and a long shirt at 8am I huffed and puffed at one of the men asked what they where doing to "my" lake.
He explained kindly, they are surveying for water sources to the lake. I trampled off irritated, I don't like humans at the lake, they trample every
thing. But after a good swim, wet and happy I approached him and asked if they were looking for springs. They were. So I asked if they knew were they
were. They didn't that was why they were drilling all over.
I asked if he was interested in seeing three specific underwater springs that I had observed over the years.
So I went home to change and we had a very nice long walk wading through brush and water. He was a geologist so he gave me all sorts of wonderful
information about the area, and he knew about the 500 million year old meteor crater nearby. I told him about what I suspected was an even older
impact zone in a state natural area.
We talked about the wildlife in the area, I told him about all the critters I have documented over eight years, about the Fischer I saved and we saw a
Virginia Rail, a new bird to the area just occurring the past year.
It was so nice to talk to a normal person about real things. And then he gave me a book about aquatic plant identification.
Such a nice day.
