There is a trail from the edge of the college campus that leads to a playing field. A heavily wooded area surrounds this little trail and the scent of pine trees was oh-so-nice. My walk lasted only thirty minutes but it sure cleared my brain.
(Insert Left Mockingbird) DRATS. Blogger gave then took away.
The birds were plentiful and I took quite a few photos. Only a few of them are worth publishing tonight, I think. Might this be a Northern Mockingbird? (I'll share this one another time.)
Mystery bird. Help?
My favorite of the day, an American Crow in flight. If I knew he was taking off, I would have used an action mode. This was a nice surprise. He’s an annoying and loud bird but his silhouette against the Carolina Blue Sky takes my breath away.
This is completely off topic, but…
Today was the first day of the second semester at the community college. In the main lobby, there was a welcome table set up and it displayed a large bowl of Jolly Ranchers and bubble gum for the 18 to 60 year olds. Additionally, there were “his” and “her” care packages. It contained Excedrin, shampoo coupons, burger coupons, chewing gum, and other happy things. The “his” packages contained something extra. See the blue package? A Trojan condom. Now. I’m not a prude and I do believe in safe sex. But, somehow, I really don’t think a condom should be included in the lighthearted category of burger coupons and chewing gum. I don’t even want to get started on this one. Here comes a little sarcasm... I mean, how on earth can a guy get through his first day of classes without a fresh, new condom?
PLEASE, GIVE ME STRENGTH.
