I had these two show up for a snack. Wondering if they are a pair or a couple of males looking for love. I've never seen them here before. Think they are a couple of fly-by eaters. I tried to get different views for I.D.
I hope you are enjoying
whatever you do on this weekend, Passover, Easter... We are having a hazy day,
things are beginning to green up, and pollen fills the air. I’ve had my first
crop of dandelions with hopes that some bees enjoyed nourishment. The second
mowing can proceed at any time. It appears the newest growth of figs last year
were frozen out during the below zero temperatures over the winter. The old
parts still stand, as the birds seem to like them for landing on and surveying
their territory. I get a kick out of watching the various varieties of birds
and their reactions to one another.
Last week, we had a
hailstorm, half an hour later a repeat and still another hour later, another
one. The same stupid cloud, it didn’t seem to want to move on and pound on
other people’s cars or roves. We had removed the insulation over the attic fan during

My youngest is staying
for a while; with DH gone all the time, it is nice to have a body in the house.
He likes things quiet as much as I do. Bliss! He put a beginner’s 3D modeling
program in my computer that is fun. (I’m not any good at it though.)
I have been reading quite
a lot of the FREE books on Smashwords. There are some extremely good stories
out there that will never get anywhere because so many people think they are
writers. (Also, some absolutely awful stuff. Free doesn’t always mean worth
your time.) There is a glut of books out there; I’m talking tens of thousands
that will never see the light of day as more and more come in every day. It is
not only Smashwords, it’s Createspace and the numerous other “book makers” on
Not going to whine about
how crappy I feel, it is what it is.
I hope you are having a
quality weekend with those you love!
