This morning at 6:30 a.m., while I was scurrying to find the right pair of shoes to wear and getting ready to leave for work, I noticed that Bella was acting a bit out of character. A week ago, she was desperately trying to scratch her right ear off so I took her to the vet. He prescribed anti-fungal drops in both ears, twice a day, for two weeks. Bella, being smarter than I give her credit for, realized this morning it was time for those dreaded, smelly drops and decided to protect herself.
"She can't see me. I'm safe."
I was very busy but HAD to find the camera...Giggling the whole time, which is something I never do at 6:30 a.m...
"Is she gone yet?"
Bird Watching for Dummies, by Bill Thompson III from Amazon arrived in the mail today. Took a quick look at the author's Top 40 Favorite Birds and saw a photo of the Great... blue... heron. Hmmm. Author quotes, "Because they are large and easily seen, great blue herons are one of the species most likely to be appreciated by non-bird watchers." Oh, yes, I wholeheartedly appreciated that defiant, brazen, Great blue heron when he visited my ponds in Maryland and Delaware and managed to gulp down my entire fish stock on two occasions! But, by golly, that bird was truly magnificent!!! I was near enough to make eye contact with the thief.
