Buzzards On The Light Pole
I wanted to share my first post of 2010. It was a
new year and the sun had come out a bit and these
three buzzards came flapping in, one on each light pole
and they stood there and put their wings out and
let their backs stay in the early morning sun.
It looks so weird to have these buzzards standing
like sentinels. I walked very close and very slow
so I could get these pictures. As I was out there
a T.V. camera guy showed up with his loud, huge
T.V. camera and took pictures. I wanted to tell him
to leave but I didn't. He did scare them away.
They flew to the top of my sister-in-law's nut tree
and spent the day storing up sunshine.
I found out later that they are kinda solar powered and
they have to do that in order to fly.
I was gone all day shopping so my brain is tired. It was so busy
at our Wal Mart that I thought going in through the garden shop
would be faster. So did a million other people. I had to wait in line
just to get into the store. I just needed some muslin. I almost left
but figured I might as well just get it over with.
I had to run into Target and it was the same way. I started getting
really afraid I might have waited to late for Christmas shopping. It was really early too.
Then of course I had to go to the library and the library grump was
working. I had brought back my five books which she said," Did you
know you have 5 books out already?" I said, yep, I put them in the book
drop, I don't think you... notice... I said you have checked them in yet.
I wasn't in a mood for snarky librarians. She was really nice after that.
Then I felt bad I said, "you", I knew she was busy. I never can be snarky,
it makes me feel so bad.
I hope your weekend is nice.
