I'm multi-tasking here...watching the debate and trying to blog.
I can't think of any witty stuff because I am trying not to blow an artery watching Sarah Palin try to keep up with Joe Biden. Does anyone else just hate her?
I hate that McGrandpa chose a woman just because she's a woman. Does he think he can wave a chick in front of us and we will lose our minds and run out to vote for her?
I hate the bit about her being able to see Russia from her front porch. I grew up in Indiana, and you can see Kentucky from the riverbank. Does that mean I would have made a good general in the Civil War?
I hate all the men out there who "ooh" and "ahh" about her. So, you think T & A makes a good vice-president? Then write me on the ballot. I've got "T" out to here.
Geez...I need some birds and stuff.
This morning, a wall of clouds crept up the street. I didn't realize it until I uploaded it, but there's an optical illusion going on. Looks like the world is slightly concave.
Breath in the blue of a blue jay.....
And the perkiness of a titmouse...
Ooo....a red-shouldered hawk on the neighbor's roof.
No band, so this is either a resident adult or a new adult. (All the chicks in the area are banded, at least we think they are)
I'm not sure about this one yet (sent an email to Kathi, the Sparrow Queen, to help)
Looks like a Field Sparrow...but it was in my yard. That would be a first.
(that dark area on the breast is just ruffled feathers...he had been preening and fluffing)
UPDATE: Kathi confirmed it. A Field Sparrow. New yard bird!
God, the debate is still going on.
Breath in....find your happy place.....
