Jim, Bird Watching and Mermaids



1. Happy Birthday, Jim. Spending the week-end in PA. Karen fixed her Dad a nice breakfast which is a good way to start the day.


2. Unidentified brown tufted bird with a yellow beak - perched in a nest right outside the kitchen window. Funny to watch. The bird fills that nest rim to rim. It sits up in the nest like one of those old-time dishes you see on a thrift-shop table.

3. We came to clean this week-end. We ended the day with the fresh smells and good feelings that go along with lots of effort - - - along with the aches and pains.

The best reward for me was finding a book I had forgotten. I must have picked up A Book of Mermaids five years ago at the summer sale at the Gettysburg Library. It is a small, slim book that is packed with old stories about the sea, mermaids and the magic that goes along with those wondrous creatures. I was not ready for these stories when I brought the book home - but now -
they are enhanting. I feel several of the stories settling on my tongue.

And 3 is yet to come! I just found your blog via Cyberspace Dawdler. I like it very much, and like your pictures. And the art. I wish I knew how to put together such an elegant layout.
