Thanks for the vids Light, they were so inspiring. It gives me hope to see the compassionate side of humans.
Are you well? A little better perhaps?


I do hope i didn't hurt your feelings wiht my previous reply about me being sweet? It was so nice and not something I hear often.
If I did I appologize.

Evening Wister!

My get up and go, got up and left. No energy tonight.

Hope you have been enjoying your time out with the dogs. Been swimming and out in nature? Hot and humid here.

Thank You and Thank You. For both of your appraisals.
Not so wise just an old fox.
The fox is an illusive trickster you know.
Yes I am recuperating, thank you. I no longer wake up at night in sweat, mind churning. No more jaw cramps, much less muscle pain.
I am ridding the house of things, stuff I haven't used within the past year. A general deep clean, and I love it.
I went swimming for the first time in four days and emerged from the water with a terrible itch. Of course I showered and scrubbed, but to no use, I sprayed hydrogen peroxide on the affected areas, nada. Then I remembered an encounter with a jellyfish years ago. Vinegar. Yes, deluded vinegar relieved the pain and itch. So I played pickle. Itch gone.

Hugs

The only way you could hurt my feelings is by standing on my right foot.

Glad to hear you are feeling better and got rid of the pain and itch.

I'm just poking around youtube. Trying to stay awake.

OW! I can still picture your swollen black and blue foot. Or was it black, blue and purple? It was colorful in any case.

I’m having fun with music tonight 😜... my taste in music, which I understand is not everyone’s taste.





Love this ...

I actually liked the tunes you picked out tonight. I could picture ballet dancers dancing to the last vid you posted.

My taste in music varies greatly, though I do have my preferences like anyone else of course.

I'm feeling restless tonight for some reason, so I'm just poking around on youtube and making ciggs.

We've got a cardinal nest in a bush alongside one of the living room windows, it's a tall bush, over human height, so you can stand at the window and eyeball the nest fairly well. The kids have been having a blast with this, studying how cardinals nurture their babies.

It has been determined through hours & hours of 2 girls captivated by front row birdwatching that mama....hangs out at the bird bar all day or something. Daddy seems to be more interested in tending them, but the 2 nestlings are often left for hours before one or the other comes back. Ok, must be their dynamic, the sparrows in another bush seem to be helicopter parents by comparison.

Well, the nestlings are starting to sprout patches of feathers now, and getting rambunctious in the nest. They kept knocking each other out of it all day yesterday. Since they've been acting like Mountain Dew-wired toddlers in there, we made sure to let the kids know if they fall out, just VERY carefully put them back in the nest & watch the area for them (seriously, touching them is fine, just make it quick & don't adopt anybody) It would be a shame if a hawk swooped down and made off with one or both, or if they got run over in the street, so we all made an effort to watch for partially feathered nosy squawkers on the ground.

Sure as s#, again today, they went from quiet in the nest to roughhousing to going over the edge & plopping on the ground again. The kids hurry out to put them back in the nest, and as they're rounding the corner out of my sight, *plop* "squawk squawk* goes one of them already. I meet them at the door & redirect them back to the bush again, and....no baby bird. The other's still in the nest hollering away, but the other...nowhere. I know one of the two has the hang of hopping REALLY well and can make like greased lightning when he/she puts their little birdie mind to it, but this was ridiculous. We looked high & low, all over the yard & in the neighbors', and in the street, no baby bird. That one's gone.

In all likelihood, yes, it's possible a hawk got that one, or a peregrine falcon (we have those pass through often) It wasn't much time between me leaving the window to getting out there, but for a hunting bird, it's enough. I suppose a cat could have come through quickly and made off with it, but the only cat that we ever saw was an outdoor pet of a former neighbor who moved, I don't think he's out there taking strolls anymore.

To make sure the sensitive younger kid didn't have a conniption fit over it, I quickly explained that it probably found a ground nest spot we can't see and was waiting there for it's mom. That seemed to suffice. I mean, the kid knows better, she's not that gullible when it comes to animals, but whatever works, right? Older kid gave me the "Yeah. Right." side-eye, though, lol.

Wow of all birds, you get a cardinal family! So beautiful! You make your stories so entertaining. LOL
Sorry to hear that one was lost, that is always sad. I have heard that it is a myth to not handle baby birds, so I don't see anything wrong in trying to give the toddlers a hand.


Would love to see pics if you have any!

Hello everyone!
Friday I'm going to see the Christopher Robin movie after lunch and before grocery shopping with Linda.


It's cheaper in the afternoons and I need something fun to do. And...not this Saturday but the next, I will be having an overnight stay at my friend Diane's. Maybe this time it won't rain and we can get to the ocean. How I love the ocean!

I hope you enjoy the movie. Cheap tickets are always good. Drink a glass of wine before it starts (preferably some MM!) and enjoy. I love Ewan McGregor.

My camera doesn't do it justice but I just showered for the first time in a week. (Imagine how bad that smelt!) I look down at my foot and see that every toe is bruised on the inside. I think I narrowly escaped breaking something. Unclothing myself was not easy, nor getting in the shower but I managed it.

Sympathy...?
