Humid But Not Too Warm Morning Coffee Muses

Last night we were buzzed by those military planes they kept warning us about. Scared the hell out of Sherry out on the back porch. Coming out of the dark, headlights blazing as it passes directly over the house. Then for the first five minutes I was out on the porch I heard no birds, saw no hummingbirds… I was starting to worry. Then suddenly there was one, then two, then a dozen… all was back to normal.

Then I spotted a couple of yellowish birds, warbler sized flying into the closest oak. That sent me inside for the binoculars. When I came back out I sat and watched for movement for 30 minutes… And saw nothing.

Now the woodpeckers are hopping from tree to tree looking for insects while the squirrels play chase up and down the trunks below.

Back again after sitting and watching. I wouldn’t be out this long without the help of a good strong fan. Gotta have some good air movement working to keep the heat and humidity at bay.

My cup of muses is dry. I’ll leave you with this…

She’s sleeping at my feet…
