today for the birds, rare shadow in the house



My crow family, the three siblings are still coming around. The parents are off on holiday , I guess, the kids are on their own. 
On the menu this afternoon: wild rice, flax seed, macadamia nuts, edame,  a melted cube of butter, the  sort that is handmade  from pasture grazed cows with names like Lucy, Mary Belle , Peaches and Cornflower. The crows know that I am trying to buy their friendship...they have got my number. What they do not know is that I have a vision of them saving my life one day or dressing me like Cinderella in that  good morning scene.

It is getting so cold-ish all of a sudden, I  do want them to be well fed, for, as they say in Throneland, "Winter is coming". Be well little Crow family of mine, you needn't bother with anything else, but dressing me in the morning would be something to write about wouldn't it.  


The gull just could not stay away, though I put out the UNwelcome mat . He is not quite so brazen and keeps his distance, no more banging on the door. 
Manners are everything. He gobbled a fair amount and left large splats everywhere, of course, a very good processor of food!


Stella and I are getting packed to go to the desert on Sunday. I have nothing but Pacific Northwest  clothing, WARM, so I may have to just spend ten days in the pool, Oh darn. If you don't hear from me, you will know that I am comfortably numb , neck deep. nude in a warm blue pool.

The sun showed up today and sent unusual jesus rays through the house. 

Shadows such as these have never come to this house  until today. perhaps it is an omen...I got stuck into some wild conspiracy theories on you tube by accident this morning. 
They are hilarious, but If I was stoned or otherwise mentally compromised I would totally buy in! 
Trump a time traveler, along with Pence, and particularly Baron! " he is NOT autistic, he is ....elsewhere"....cue Alcoa Presents music....or some other music that gives you the heebie jeebies. 

Google Ingersol Lockwood if you care to know the spookiness of  mysterious goings on...I will not link it because you have to REALLY WANT IT!! 

Weird and whoa ,dude! AND an utter waste of precious brain cells.



The  jays are always here, Sometimes the tree is so full of them it looks intentionally , garishly decorated . Peanuts, you see, huge bags of them from Cost Co, causes many a ruckus here, fighting over them, birds and squirrels-  three squirrels  in the house  yesterday  whirling around each other and the bag of peanuts--They sounded awfully vicious - I opened the door wide and told them that if they could not be civil and quit  acting like wild animals I would  have to ask them to leave,   they did. 
They came back, one by one. Much better behaved .Like the gull, Manners, friends, manners! 
 makes all the difference.

  2. I would not trust louvers or blue jays an inch! The crows, however, can save you, if you pay attention. Check with Frodo

  4. Those shadows are gorgeous. I wouldn't worry about crows in the winter. Crows are survivors! I love listening to conspiracy theories for entertainment's sake, but part of me worries that even if we know they're ridiculous they sink in just a little bit, and affect our thinking later. I'm happier to stick to reliable sources!

    1. Oh Steve, you are SO right about letting in the theories even just a little bit, Now I am seeing things that are not there, nor are they even possible. Crazy!

  5. You are MUCH nicer to the the crows than I'm being to the flickers! They wreak havoc with the bird seed, throwing it around everywhere and screeching to beat the band. And they're way too big for the song bird feeders. No matter. I live on a greenbelt and all are welcome, including the Cooper's hawk family.
