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.


  1. Dear Girl with no Neck,

    Perhaps a music stand to hold your book, up high. That's some heavy duty reading there. Vote in every election, big or small. Good will prevail.

  2. Thought about sending someone off to Barnes and Nobel to get a tilty reading table, but don'[t you know that as soon as I get one, I will be able to take this brace off!!!

  3. Having a retired hubby does have its perks. Looks like he is a good good buyer and a thoughtful helper. I'm always amazed at how our bodies heal. Give it a bit of rest and some sunshine and good food and it can put itself back together pretty well. Cool card from Sarah.

    1. Sunshine, good food, and SLEEP!!! Getting my power back...and yes, indeed , retirement is remarkable!! I love this life!

  4. I'm glad the pink fluff culprit is a bird and not a rodent. Glad Mr. Man's retirement is productive, and Sarah's card is amazing!

  5. I don't think I'll read any of those books. too depressing. beautiful flowers.
