This is a short week for me so I had to put in extra hours these last two days. I'm taking off Thursday. I have oral surgery scheduled for 8:45 a.m. and it's impossible to express just how excited I am. Just thinking about extractions, bone grafts, and implants make me giddy. It should be a day to remember.
At any rate, it was dusk when I got home this evening and too late to walk. I'll have to make up for it tomorrow.
The downside to darkness is that I don't have a picture for tonight. The upside is – I store my pictures on Google Photo. I paged back through the years until I found one taken in December of 2008. I remember the day I took this photo. Like today, the sky was overcast and the temperature was colder than usual. Sparrows were on the banister of the back deck munching at the birdseed buffet that we leave there for them each day.
In the picture below, it looks almost as if they are posing for me. "Smile Chippy, the nice feeder man is taking our picture." The sparrow on the right chirps, "Does this seed make me look fat?"
Watching the birds is how we get our kicks here in the sticks.
