Thank you...

I got so many supportive messages in reponse to my post of self-doubt and uncharacteristic negativity...and

Chandan

sent me the link to this great speech:





I listened to it, and am so much cheered (er, I didn't want that inspirational song repeated though!)...I'll be seeing this whenever I'm feeling down.

Will take to heart that line..."don't put up with those who are reckless with your heart" :)

Thank you...to each of you who responded. It was just what the doctor ordered.

The American Pelican

A wonderful bird is the pelican...
His bill can hold more than his belican.
He can take in his beak
Food enough for a week...
But I’m damned if I see how the helican!

That was one pelican in Forest Park, filling up!

I love limericks.

Here's a limerick about a limerick:

It's partly the shape of the thing
That gives the limerick its swing.
Those accordion pleats
Full of airy conceits
Take it up like a kite on the wing.

(yes, Photobucket is working again. Big grin.)

Some birds in Forest Park, 2802 and 010310

It's nice to be able to walk through Forest Park in the late mornings or early afternoons at weekends (on weekdays, I must finish a brisk walk before 8am, when I begin Nanny duty, and KTB comes down like an angel from above!)....I haven't seen any but the common birds, but they are quite beautiful:

The NORTHERN CARDINAL was sitting...

It was getting late, and chillier, and I caught the sunset as I walked home:

This Saturday, for the first time, I hope to be able to join the St.Louis Audubon Society's Bird Walk in Forest Park (which is for novices like me.) The last couple of times I made it for this monthly event, it was rained out...I was the only one there, not even the people who were supposed to conduct the walk turned up! So I'm hoping I will be luckier this time...
