girl with no neck , living in a crazy movie



Spring again, blue jays visiting our deck all day every day. Squirrel coming in through the open door...he claimed to not be the pink fluff culprit...told me to go out and check again, I did. He is correct, It is a flicker family , the mama flicker , very strong to have done such work, There is some amount of relief knowing that there are not mammals up there.

Anyway, the squirrels got a nice cedar house out of the deal which Mr. Man will put up in the plum or cherry tree soon. 
Also have a bat house to  put up .
I love this new trend... his retirement is most agreeable!


Sarah, of circles of rain blog, and my best London friend , sent this card which she made.
So utterly clever, the head spins and moves back and forth , the no neck girl.


Mr. Man has been shopping...interesting times, the intrigue, the lies told, the seeing around the corner of what is to come- 
All good books, plus the New Yorker Magazines articles re: The Christopher Steele dossiers 
The time's are a-changing, as they do, but with so much speed right now!
Amazing how anyone can get a book written so quickly and get it out there as a best seller overnight!
So, we have some reading to keep us off the streets ...I just need to devise a way to read without bending my neck, also without being so bowled over by such heavy shattering information, but we kind of saw this bulldozer coming , did we not?  
 Blue, blue windows behind the stars,
Yellow moon on the rise,
Big birds flying across the sky,
Throwing shadows on our eyes.
Leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless.


-seems the only control (voice) we may have is the electorate, proven also to be untrustworthy...
SO (?)
Just take care of yourselves and those around you. Sounds like a good plan.

out of doors and the pink fluff culprit



Today is the first day I have felt more like living another! Though I was very conservative using the meds after surgery, I went through three days of dismal withdrawals, and if you do not know what they are, and how would you...it is a death wish, days and nights of concocting plans to do yourself in - no sleep, extreme nausea, pains all the way up to and through your astral body- all the way to the neighbors house, sick. I am such a wimp! Too sensitive for just about any drugs at all, I guess.
But I do now understand the urge, the temptation to take just one more to make the discomfort vanish for at least an hour!  I am humbled! 


and on this day, the sun came out for a few minutes, I walked outside for a brief look around the yard.
I think that I am out of the woods with this damned thing!
At least the drug part of it.


The two vent holes  beneath the eaves,had wire over them and new wood around them are where the culprit tossed out the insulation, chewed up the wire mesh, and chewed her way in, to have her babies, of course. 

We have decided to let her stay until the babies are mature enough to leave.
Mr. Man bought a new house for them ,putting it up high on a branch in the Plum tree.
so we wait...


she is a pretty little thing, all shiny and plump, the baby daddy comes for peanuts , eats as many as he can and takes the rest to her.
Things are getting better!
Got a voucher for my flight but must use it before February 8, 2019. If the world is still in one piece by then I am thinking to go to Hawaii . Why not!Mr. Man will probably be agreeable to that trip, There are Cost Co's on the island!

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.  O...
