Teddy Bears and Birds.
We finally saw the sun this morning. Everything was golden. A friend phoned to see if I'd like to go to the Good will with her so at 10:00 am we were off. I had a few groceries to pick up so it would all work out well. I just love rummaging around these places. I spied some boxes of toys and there was a teddy bear looking up at me from one of them. Now, there are only certain kinds that appeal to me and this was one of them. I like the jointed ones but I've been know to buy other kinds on occasion. I picked this one up and said, okay, you're coming with me. On turning around I saw a much larger bear hanging off the side of the box with just one eye. I walked over to him and said, I can give you a new eye, you're coming with me. Before I managed to get away I saw this small head peeking out of the box, looking so sad, saying ...please, please, please take me home too. Well, what else could one do. So, picked him up and said you're coming home with me.
These are the three rascals. Aren't they dears.
Although the sun was out, it felt quite nippy. Quite a few birds at the feeders. Two grey jays were here. Haven't seen those in ages. Lots of chick a dees and a few American goldfinches back again along with the usual crowd, crows, jays, woodies, and nuthatches.
Chick a Dees
Malachi yesterday in the misty rain.
Update on Himself. He's still in Spain, flying home on Friday. He's been to the doctor again and had blood tests. They don't know what's causing the rash but found that he has a bronchial infection and he's on heavy duty antibiotics. Hopefully he'll be feeling well enough to fly.
