My favorite blogs are ones that make me laugh or tell great stories. I can't seem to come up with either humor or tales. I've reached the conclusion that one of the aspects of a great storyteller is the ability to draw out a situation with colorful descriptions that draw the listener in. I tend to be short and concise. I often edit out what I feel are non-essential words to get right to the point. Hopefully this blog will let me express myself in a more meaningful manner.
I've been up since about 7:40 this morning. Retirement has its benefits. I stayed awake until 1:00 or so last night. I've taken Tylenol PM the past three nights trying to get a good night's sleep. I think its helping in that I may still wake up several times a night, but at least get right back to sleep instead of staying awake for an hour or more. Reading helps make me dozy but the minute I turn out the light, I'm wide awake again. Hate that.
Lots of birds at the feeders this morning, especially redpolls. They really seem to get the two parakeets (budgies) in the bedroom worked up. Bandit, a mustache parakeet, appears to have a growth on her head. The avian specialist that we use is gone until the week after next. We're going to wait unless it seems to be growing before taking her to a strange vet.
I know this is boring. Sue me.
