Ann (me ann my camera) has ID'd the moth in last blog. It's a White Underwing Moth. Thanks Ann, much appreciated.
We set off around 7:00 am yesterday morning for the hours drive to the dentist. I was a little tense, hadn't slept much the night before. Arrived about 8:15, checked in, and was put in the chair. While waiting for the dentist to come in I was berating myself about how silly I was being. After all says I in my mind, I'm not a child, I'm a grown woman. Never the less, I had myself quite worked up by the time he arrived. All in all it wasn't bad at all. I don't have to see him for another year for a check up thankfully, as we don't have dental insurance it was a lot of money out of my pocket.
After that we went to look for a transistor radio for Roger. One of those am/fm ones that have been on the market for years. His old one isn't working all that well and he uses it on his walks. Well.....we went to three stores, two being department stores and one an electronics shop. Could we find a transistor........NO!..... but plenty of i-pods, black berries, etc, all that stuff that I know nothing about. Roger was not happy. He kept going on and on about people today, what was wrong with them that they needed all this other fancy stuff, etc, lol. I guess few people use a small transistor radio anymore.
The weather has been just marvelous. A few showers here and there but mainly sunny and warm. I am seeing some of the leaves changing colour on the trees now. I do love autumn but hate to see summer end as well. The warm weather has brought back some butterflies and dragonflies. I didn't get any dragon pictures, kept waiting for a landing but no luck.
Chicken dozing in the warmth of the sun.
Wheelbarrow taking a rest, lol
Some of the flowers in bloom now.
And this little darling still eating me out of sunflower seeds.
