Good morning. I've heard and read a lot of comments on how the weather is not as warm as it should be, but I personally think that the weather we've been having lately is perfect. When it's too hot, outdoor activities are not as much fun. When it is cooler, it's too cool for beach activities. For me, I love it!! No complaints here at all.
Has anyone been watching the new program on the Game Show Network? Skin Games. It's really quite fascinating. The artists competing are really good at their craft, and usually when they finish painting on a model you cannot tell that she is nude. Sometimes, if the model has been painted in front of a background, you cannot see her at all. Very interesting.
Another fun new show on the Game Show Network is called Idiotest. This one is great for keeping your mind and brain sharp. I consider myself fairly intelligent, but I've got a few of their puzzles wrong. If you haven't watched it yet, give it a try.
Today, I have some photos taken from our kitchen window. We ran out of the square suet treats, so I lathered up a bread end with peanut butter and Joe put it in the treat holder. He wasn't even back in the house before we already had customers.
Lurking nearby, hidden in the red maple, was one of the black birds just waiting for a chance to swoop down and get at the peanut butter treat.
Gosh, these blackbirds always have such a sinister look about them. The only ones that look friendly are the youngsters. We usually get a crop of them each year and they move on after a while. For some reason, this year they don't seem to be in a hurry to leave.
Today's excitement will be a trip to the market to do some food shopping. Oh my, the excitement of retirement is wearing me out!!!!! haha.
I think I've figured out a way to get Pogo to eat more doggie food. He always gets the hungries late at night, between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. He likes to leave his supper sitting there for hours until late at night when, for some reason, it must taste better to him. Oh dear, what did people feed my little guy before he came to live with me? I'm going to try putting down a small dish of doggie food tonight around 10:30 p.m. and see what happens.
There's really not much news this morning so I'll take my leave here. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a magnificent day.
Hugs, Edna B.
