I am ferclempt (not sure what that means, but I am that) …I am forlorn…I am panicking…and I am pissed off!! My camera (my very best buddy after Dennis) has decided to shut down until we provide it with a new battery…THE NERVE!!!! I feel like my friend just shut me down….However, I can do this..I know I can..a blog with ZERO, ZIP, ZILCH photos…AL , talk me off the ledge!!!
Ok, ok, I think I have a handle on this problem…Adjust and overcome..Take deep breaths and just let your fingers do the talking..
Hmmmmm……OK..yesterday we did lots of work in the yard…That was something that was really in need! I reluctantly did this, considering the fact that I had to go waaay out in the back of our yard to pull some of the weeds, and the trains blowing the crap out of their horns as they were almost bearing down on me out there...(I long for the quiet of a good campsite)..I donned one of my more risquee’ outfits ( for backyard viewing only) for my “tiptoe through the thistles” ..Geez…How the Hell did the Ark people clean up all of the weeds after 40 days and 40 nights of rain???
After about 3 hours of kneeling on my kidney shaped foam knee pad ( you ladies know the ones), I foolishly decided to get out the dreaded electric hedge trimmers. Our bushes by the back deck were beginning to resemble one HUGE hedge, imagine a unibrow with branches. Dennis hates when I use those hedge trimmers. He would like to have the paramedics on speed dial when I begin to wield those babies. He is afraid I will lop off one of my digits,or the extention cord,or the hose,…… or worse yet, one of the Hughesnet cables (just because I knicked on ONCE) …Oh ye of little faith!!
Tuesday morning I made a list of “to do’s” for McGuyver. It was a one item list …ORDER ME A NEW CAMERA BATTERY! I have to admit, I am an Ansel Adams“wantabe”, and I miss my camera. I also miss hiding behind trees and bushes, sneaking around birdbaths scaring the birds, creeping up behind the garage amongst the asparagus...all the fun , stealthy things I do to get a decent photo. It makes me feel like James Bond in a tube top. Den found a battery on Ebay and ordered it. My luck it probably won’t be here in time for our July 4th Parade on Saturday morning. The parade route goes right around the corner by our house. A good old fashioned small town parade would be a real boon for a blogger..IF I have a camera!
Here are a couple pictures from my archives…Admit it…you knew I couldn’t complete my blog without a picture or two…
These were all taken at Falcon Lake State Park, North of Roma TX…a birder’s paradise….
Well, I have given it my all. I am drained and strained from trying to come up with witty things and no pictures so that you can better understand my rantings. To make things even worse, my Wren pair have moved OUT of their little love nest. Maybe it was too close to the feeders, maybe we gave them no privacy for “together time”…or….maybe it was the fact that McSquirrel used their birdhouse to jump onto and catapult from it onto our feeder. Yep, I’ll bet that was it…ya think?????
More Thursday….maybe I can draw stick people and upload them in lieu of photos…
