Sunrise ~ Goldfinch ~ Animals in Winter ~ National Police Officers Memorial Day ~ Bumper Sticker Video ~ Ten Commandments ~ Rice Crackers/SpinachArtichokeParmesan Dip ~ Bruiser ~ Sunset

Good 53º semi cloudy morning...
Looking south.... with Fielder Mountain...
Looking northeast....

I was going to go to Tucker's baseball game yesterday, but the back was being killer, so I stayed home and rested!
This bird loves the Red Hot Pokers... it appears to be an American Goldfinch.
Not easy to get his picture, very flighty!

Breakfast was poached eggs with asparagus and fresh mozzarella balls...

Our language is interesting, to say the least.
Now if all the 'C' words were spelled with 'K' it would go like this...
I kannot eat kantelope as it makes me kringe.

That still works, but the other way around doesn't so much..
I could not unlock the door without a cey. The cing and queen of England. My cids are outside playing on the swings.
Just sayin' ....
This video shared by pal Patty Kuehl. It's 3 minutes. I LOVE birds and animals and this video is just so fun and relaxing...
A lot of patience was involved in making this.

Today has been designated as Peace Officers Memorial Day


Ok, this is cop humor, and some of you may not appreciate it or get it, but that's ok. When I first saw this video I was laughing and so enjoying it. (Thanks Terry Bonyea!) Besides, I love Inner Circle and "whatcha gonna do when they come for you.... bad boys bad boys" ..... This in honor of all peace officers everywhere!

When I was working the desk (911 & calls for service) at ELA Station, I had a similar bumper said "Call 911 - I make cops come" ... Well...................... one of the really prudish beeotchy secretaries (who should have NEVER been working in a male dominated environment) complained to the Capt about the bumper sticker. Swell. Called into Captain's office. He apologized, and I said, "for him" I'd remove it so the sophomoric little girl would get off his back!
Geesh! Everyone else liked it!

How do you like the size of these paws!!!

The sun was setting so I went out to capture it...
Looking west....
 And Fielder Mountain....

We did have a few sprinkles yesterday. Nothing enough to measure. Stayed cloudy most of the day.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.
