Quail ~ Queen ~ Boudin ~ Biscuits

Good 42ยบ high clouds morning. Supposed to stay cloudy today with a chance of rain tomorrow. Yesterday was a "no spraying day" with 25 mph wind gusts! Windy all day. Howling wind.


Yesterday I heard this quail calling...
and sitting in the grapevines .....
Their call is odd sounding.... go to this site, scroll down to the 'calls' and listen to the first one... that is what he sounded like...


Thought this so funny. Queen Elizabeth getting a laugh as her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, stands guard outside Buckingham Palace......

Interesting yesterday.. I had ordered a "Mom's Day" breakfast package for Kristen from Boudin Bakery
in San Francisco.

It was on a "2 day shipping" by FedEx. It was to be delivered on Friday. I checked the tracking number after Kristen didn't say anything about receiving a package. Sure enough the stupid FedEx driver said at 6:30pm an attempt was made to deliver but the school was closed. DUH! It's a school!!! So I wrote Boudin and told them of my frustration. They called me yesterday and apologized, said they were going to contact FedEx, and Kristen would get the shipment yesterday as well as another shipment of "fresh breads" and an apology from Boudin on this coming Friday. Nice. Glad they did that. Good company and I'm happy now. EXCEPT that Kristen never received the package yesterday~! FedEX you are on my LIST!
