A good day

Today was a pretty nice day, until I got attacked by a bird! I was crossing a street and was about in the middle when I felt a thump on the top of my head. I saw a blur of black fly away and when I put my hand up on my head, my glasses were gone - I had put them on the top of my head for safekeeping. So much for safe, I saw them drop down to the sidewalk on the other side of the street, at least 12 feet away. Amazingly, when I picked them up and examined them, they were unharmed. Obviously, the bird saw something shiny and thought it was something good to eat. The joke’s on him!

I had a real treat today, I saw a peacock raise his tail feathers in a beautiful display. He was trying to attract a female by shaking his feathers she was pecking for food nearby, totally unimpressed and uninterested. I took some video and put a short couple clips together you can see it on You Tube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nv2_nYBZwfA  

I also saw some little prairie dogs, so cute and industrious, digging all the time for their food.


Just so you know it’s not all fun and games, then I went to get some groceries, came back home and did a couple loads of laundry.  It was a good day!
