It’s typical for me to go through an entire day without an idea for a post. But somehow, on the drive home or cleaning up the kitchen in preparation for dinner, the light bulb casts a glow. Strange. Here are the events of my day which was a hurried one at work and very tiring.
I’ve been asked to photograph the cadets during their training towards providing a slide show at the graduation ceremonies. The group has dwindled from twenty five to eighteen, nearly half-way through their training. The male in the forefront looks as if he is thinking, “Sir, you want me to do what, Sir?” I’m honored to do this. Also, I’ve been encouraged to submit an article to the college “Communicator” news about the Bluebird rescue we accomplished last week. This tickles me pink.
After my walk on the trail this afternoon, this is the only photo worth showing. Well, it’s not really worth showing since I didn't have time to zoom, but it’s the best I could do. I saw two potential lifers out there and missed the shots. A tiny, very yellow bird teased me. And a warbler, too. I know they were laughing at me behind my back as I didn’t have binocs… I’ll get them sooner or later!
Back at home this evening, here is a beginning of a Daytona 500 race in the house. Chloe is doing great after a week of drugs for her knee. Gotta love the action around here!
For my best photo of the day, this is the best I can offer. How can the temperatures here climb from 15 degrees to 61 degrees in 36 hours??? The bugs were out. If anyone who reads this feels liking throwing rocks at me, I’m sorry, but today was a t-shirt day later in the afternoon. I worked on the pond tonight, adding bacteria and clay, and taking advantage of unfrozen garden hoses. The temps will be below freezing again soon…
Before I took this shot, I missed two very small birds (potential lifers) sitting in a pansy basket on my front porch. Arrrrgh.
Good night. American Idol is on the horizon! (By the way, Flickr was a breeze!) I love sunsets and this one I saw tonight is GRAND!
