THIS LITTLE FARM BOY IS BACK ON HIS SWING FOR ANOTHER SEASON
It's been another loooooong cold & wet wind driven rainy day again. Not nice!!
Had a couple possible ID's on yesterday's unknown brown bird in our front yard. A female Junco or a female Cowbird? While at the computer this morning I saw a male Cowbird land on the nearest feeder. He was soon joined by the unknown brown bird & moments later they both flew off up into the trees together so I'm guessing that JUDY is spot on with her identification of a female Cowbird. Kelly spotted a blue looking bird in one of the shrubs this morning & later I was able to get a few pics of it on the ground under the feeders. The closest bird we could find in our book that 'sort of' resembled this little fellow was an Eastern Bluebird so once again we'll have to wait for our knowledgeable bird people's opinion.
Had to slip into the small town of Clinton this morning which is only 10 minute drive for us to pick up a few groceries. On the way back it was raining pretty good so I was surprised to come upon a long line of maybe a couple hundred high school kids walking west along the shoulder of the road. Must have been some kind of organized walk going on. Maybe a walk for cancer or something. I had the heater on in the van but couldn't help but notice a lot of these walking kids were in shorts with clear plastic bags pulled over their upper bodies as protection from the cold rain. Aw yes, those difficult teen age years eh!! Looking back, I think that era bring back some of my best, & poorest memories.
EITHER A LOT OF KIDS GOT KICKED OUT OF SCHOOL TODAY OR THEY ARE WALKING FOR A 'CAUSE' OF SOME SORT
These recent long days of bad weather nothingness sure have been mentally difficult to positively navigate through. I'm still hoping to pull a rabbit out of the hat & get myself motivated & interested in something worthwhile & challenging. I just may have to take up basket weaving after all....... Oh, the humility of it all.
