Crows/Coyote/Bruiser/Hummer/Bluebird/Bees ~ Erika/Spence ~ El Encanto ~ Dude ~ Garden


Good 40º sunny clear morning.


There are about 7 crows who had decided for some reason they like the barn roof and were up there most of the day yesterday.. being very noisy... and they are back up there again today.

Then Mr. Coyote was out in the pasture... on the hunt for something. I took his picture then called to him and he turned and looked at me.



The Bruise comfy on the porch.... "Hi mom. Why are you taking my picture?"

This hummer kept an eye on me while I was taking pictures..



As well as this bluebird on the electric wires.. it has a nest inside one of my porch birdhouses...
 
And I saw the bees on the lavender bush...


Yesterday I said it was my friends Erika and Spencer's 53rd wedding anniversary. She sent me this photo of them with their parents on their wedding day...  How neat is this!!! Erika sooooooooooooo pretty and Spence the 'cute' sailor!

Hmmm.................

... yeah, don't forget TVs, and Social Security! Thanks Liberals for taking away any incentive for people to work and for taking away from those of us who worked all of our lives our money, health care, and rights.


Here is what happened on January 1st 2014:

Top Income tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%
Top Income payroll tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%
Capital Gains tax went from 15% to 28%
Dividends tax went from 15% to 39.6%
Estate tax went from 0% to 55%
Remember this fact: if you have money, the democrats want it. These taxes were all passed only with democrat votes, no republicans voted to do these taxes.
These taxes were all passed under the affordable care act, otherwise known as Obama care.



I couldn't think of the name of the restaurant that had the corn fritters and my high school friend Linda (Kretzinger) Price remembered it was El Encanto. OMG, thank you Linda! It was in Azusa!

Dude and I took a 'run' to the road to see if our new trash can had arrived. It had.



Then we came back ... Dude only rides in the golf cart when I am down at the road so he doesn't go near the road...

Lots of clouds still out there. I even turned on the heater yesterday morning!!!


Yesterday it heated to all of 70º.   I went out and trimmed some of the grapevines in the garden... We started this project of renovating the garden and then got sidetracked. 

Marteen will be here this morning. He is the one who did all the clean up and made the HUMOUNGOUS burn pile. He's coming back to take down the raised beds and just put bark in that area. I don't want to deal with a garden any more.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.
