Things I learned at Cape May

1. Ticks can come in all sizes. And even though they might be tiny, they can still give a person the full-body-shivers (after grabbing the camera to get a pic before flushing it down the john)

2. Even mockingbirds can get "warbler-neck".

3. Crabs can be the exact color of sand.

4. Call them rats with wings, but gulls can really STRUT.

5. Jeff Gordon has some seriously fabulous hair. (I told him that if he was a chick, we would be having a cat fight about it. I mean, it's really great hair. Why is great hair wasted on guys?)

Other things that do not involve photos:

6. Some people have shy bladders (I'm not sayin' who. )

7. Make one mistake and they will rip you on it for 2 whole days (Yes, yes! Okay! I ran a RED LIGHT !!!)

I really like ring-billed gulls. They look so funny walking around on their spindly legs.

So you are the scofflaw I saw run the red light as I was coming out of Dunkin' Donuts?!

Ooops! Are you getting more grief than if you had done that with your children in the car? I'm just asking.

Heh. I ran a red, too -- Friday a.m.

I'll blame it on all the lights having been flashing yellows the night before and me not noticing the change for weekend traffic (c:

Gee, Susan, when I birded with Jeff Gordon in West Virginia, I pointed my binoculars at the sky and the trees. What were YOU aiming at?

And, in the first photo, it looks like you borrowed some of Sharon's nail polish there.

C'mon, tell more about your trip - I'm dying over here!

So you ran a red light. No big deal :o)

I'm glad you had time on the beach. We fed gulls french fries while sitting in our beach chairs. Being at the beach often was something I took for granted.

There's nothing better than to be with friends on the beach. I can tell you had a marvelous time.

See now, you'll have everyone thinking of me when you say *shy*.

Hey, I never mentioned that red light again - perfectly understandable when we had restaurants on our mind!
