For What Its Worth

Animals and birds, know no borders.
On the other hand, mankind knows where the borders are,
and there lies the problem.

Mr & Mrs Robin

Mrs Robin told Mr Robin
to start fetching twigs
and grass. Mr Robin asked
what for? Mrs Robin said
“remember we had hot
and wild sex, which lasted
half the morning!” Well she
said, “you knocked me up!”
“Oh!” he said.

Baby Blue Jay

July 10 2014

I spotted this tiny Blue Jay, sitting on the mulch, so I took a few photos, and this one seem to be the best of the lot. Plus, I had to reach through the fence to take the shot(s).

Time of photo: 9:23 AM.

Seagull

July 5 2014

At 9:56 PM, I saw the seagull roaming around the grounds of the building I live in. I wanted to get a photo of the bird, when he was a lot closer, and the lighting was better. But as soon as I was ready to snap, the little shit decides to go wandering off.  This was the best I could do, as it went into hiding in the shrubs.

Burnt Toast

Burn your toast, anyone?

You do have options.

Eat it.

Toss it in the trash.

Scrape it, then eat it.

Give it to the birds.

Or save it, and use it in place of sandpaper,

or an emergency coaster for the coffee and/or end table.

Happy Birds

It’s early Saturday evening, and in an hour, the sun will be setting at 8:24 PM. Have the windows open, the baseball game is on the TV, and the best part is, the numerous birds all happy and chipper as they are tweeting away in one massive chorus. Sitting here listening to the birds, they are saying that there is still a lot to like about the earth, that we all call home. With a touch of Zen, life is grand.
