Tuesday Tidbits

This coming Sunday is Father's Day.  Run, jog, walk or crawl to your Netflix Queue and rent Life As A House.  It details a father-son relationship that is drenched in pathos and humor, and I think a worthwhile viewing.  Whether you still have your Dad or not, watch it for a unique perspective on fatherhood.

I have been dogsitting Miss Maddie this week while Mr. And Mrs. Wombie visit kinfolk in Colorado.  She has been a perfect angel all week.  It didn't hurt that I could also mooch off what was in the fridge.   

++++++++++

There are two hummingbird feeders in the Wombie's backyard.  I have been having fun playing David Attenborough taking pictures of the little guys when they come up and feed.  Those pictures will be posted in the coming days.

While taking my morning walk I noticed what looks like a bra in a ditch just outside Emerald City. How it got there remains a mystery, but one can imagine.

This is what greets you as you drive into Oquawka.

I took a bike ride last week and while driving round noticed this peering from a garage.


I stopped at the open door waiting for the owner so I could tell him how much I admired it, but alas, no owner showed up.

Readers: especially Mr. Sutor - We have confirmed plans to ride the bikes in late August early September.  Our itinerary remains felxible (it's about the riding, not the destination, right?) but west is the preferred direction.  There are some issues to mull, however:

1.  We don't do rain.
2.  We don't do night very well,  except early morning - that is a perfect time to ride.
3.  If a big green blob is on radar between the west and our starting off place, we will re-direct our ride elsewhere. 
4.  If it is raining on the day we depart, we cancel till it stops.  
5.  If we have to we'll just do some local riding, maybe a couple overnights somewhere.
6.  First priority is safety.

When did "str-EE-ngth" become "str-e-ngth"?

++++++++++

If America didn't do anything about AR style assault rifles after Adam Lanza mowed down little kids at Newtown, we won't do anything after Orlando.  This is the America you want.

++++++++++

Thanks to a friend I'm watching Doc Marten.  It's great.

++++++++++

Saw this perfect little nest alongside the road on my walk.  Hope everyone is OK.
