Once again, we are the proud parents of a clutch of purple finches. My wife hangs a wreath in our outer entry area, under the roofed area, and every year we get at least one clutch. When I picked up the paper this morning, one of the birds was standing on the edge of the nest watching me. Now, they are all gone. Ungrateful little wretches. We will clean up the wreath and see if another nest gets built.
Went to the dog park today-Sky gets another bath . There is a low ground that holds water a while. Dirty, stinky, slimy water. The dogs are worse than a toddler in a puddle. Sometimes, if you are really lucky, they lie down in it. You can hear the owners scream from a long ways. It would be nice if a dip in the river cleaned them, but the last time Sky went into the river, he had a brown high water mark.
Apples are blooming. Should be a good year, and the dandelions are doing really well.
Wife is taking violin lessons. She practices while I take Sky for a run. Hard instrument to learn, but she is making identifiable sounds.
Trash pickup day tomorrow. Stack it by the street and it disappears. Lots of scavengers(yes, I am one) as stuff gets exchanged. Metals get picked up fast for recycling. Sometimes you wonder why people take some things, but one persons junk.
