We've had baby robins fluttering around and even inside our garage as they practice with their new wings. I've heard and seen the yellow-winged blackbirds take flight. But I never seem to see a baby mourning dove with their parents. Hmmm.
We are in glorious - near paradise conditions here with balmy weather, light winds and sunshine after rain. Yet, I hear the air conditioners humming away as I walk. Seems depressing to have the house always sealed up, but maybe that's me. It's also common at the Chairman and Co. to only run the a/c if it hits 86 inside the house. But maybe that's just us.
Son #1 and I had the privilege of retrieving a bike that took a ride to the sheriff's department the other day. I tempted fate and parked illegally in front of the office with sheriff cars buzzing about. I'm crazy like that. We walk inside and there are three serious looking bullet-proof windows. One was for paying fines. One was for paying for your bail. And one was for 'other' so I walked up and was greeted by Sheriff Slightly Friendly. I explained about the bike taking a ride in the cop car and then I had to give my ID so he could run a background check on me, explain a few details about myself and the bike and finally he retrieved it from the "holding room". I was trying to be charming and friendly and offered eager smiles. He in turn did not. It's all serious business at the sheriff's department.
A few ladies were waiting there in the waiting room. They looked distressed. I overheard one say to the other, 'do you think they'll release him before long? We've waited a really long time and I wish they'd tell us something.' I think their day or relation isn't as good as mine is.
I posted this on FB the other day. Daughter #2 loves to use my phone for pictures and slo-mo shots, etc. I found this on my camera roll. Kinda looks like an angel until you realize it is daughter #2. She's sweet, but definitely no angel. Tee-hee.
