Good Morning, all.

Took one of the hounds out about half an hour ago. It was just barely daylight, still half dark out there. A robin flew over to the the dry birdbath and sat there pointedly, as if reminding me that I was failing in my duty. I obliged him, and the birds have water for this morning.

There'll be no need to fill the birdbath this weekend, by all accounts. Heavy rains are expected in these parts, starting later this afternoon.

And me, I feel kind of lousy, and not so wide awake. I'm headed back to bed. Ahhh, the luxury of vacation.

Hope everyone has a happy Friday, and a wonderful weekend!

You are missed here in Officeland! Enjoy the rest of your vacation. I'll see you on Tuesday (field visits on Monday).

Darling, just don't look up, nothing ruins carfully applied blue eye shadow than bird shit. ;)

Merci said...

While I miss all of you, I don't particularly miss officeland.

See ya on Tuesday!

Miss Magnolia-
Ironic that you should say that. Do you have the sight? We were walking outside at the Tuckerton Seaport Museum this afternoon, when something hit my left shoulder blade hard from behind. I looked around for the child who threw the boulder, but there was noone else in sight. Only the gulls flying overhead. You get the picture, I'm sure. My jacket is in the wash as we speak.

ah, the tranquility of vacation.

Merci said...

Yes, and like tranquility, the vacation always ends too soon. ;)

Always lands in your lap
Make a curtsey and
Tap your troubles away"

Miss Magnolia-
I didn't tap or curtsy (I'm not graceful enough for either), but it all turned out OK.
