Midweek post...

I know, you are saying to yourself, "what mischief are you up to now?" After months of no middle week posts, out of the blue comes one now.
Well, I like to keep my public guessing. You never know what madness will come out of this humble abode. This will make up for one of my missing weekend posts in the past or perhaps the future. Either way, it isn't out of the ordinary. It just doesn't happen very often.
So, on to the breaking news of the day.

With most people now a days speaking out on how the good old days were, it seemed time to speak well of modern conveniences. Take your mind back. Say we are in about 45 BC. Right about the time of cleopatra and marc anthony. Were I to send you a picture or even spread one about the merry old city, I'd have to see it, then get one of the great artists of the day to come and see it. Then a mason would chisel out a stone or two for sculpture. I may also fell a tree and make papyrus. Either way, the beauty would be etched or drawn (which would take a month or so). Then I'd call in one of my nubian slaves and send them off with the rock portrait or papyrus drawing. They would travel the deserts to your small hamlet and give it to you - if they did not drop it in the nile or throw it at a passing scorpion. All said, months may have elapsed before you were able to behold the sight I thought so beautiful.
Back here in modern days, all I do is take a picture and post it on my blog. Much simpler.

So weather you love or despise the computer, enjoy home remedies or go to the doctor, use a riding lawn mower or hand pick each leaf of grass, use synthetic or organic fertilizer, plant bioengineered seeds or sow by the light of the 3rd full moon you can still enjoy these birds.

I'm not sure what they were doing, but maybe it's a sign it will be an early spring and twitterpation is in the air. 


  1. Wow- Great pictures. You caught the "pecking order" perfectly.

  2. Your bird photos are both amazing and beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

  3. I like midweek posts. And I like your fence. And I like your writing. And I like you. Am I a good mother in law, or what?
