A Year Ago, This Week

Saturday 24 May 2003

Saturday - vacation.

Friday 23 May 2003

Friday - off to San Diego.

Thursday 22 May 2003

Thursday - a friend found another baby bird, so I brought it in to C. So, she has four now! It's some sort of crow or raven, much bigger than the others, hungry and loud, so she is keeping it separate from the others. Another friend found some sort of hawk fledgling being mauled by a cat, and turned it in to "Ranger Frank". I guess its that time of year. Apparently it wasn't hurt badly and is doing well, to everyone's surprise.

It's turned hot, in the eighties and nineties, overnight. Amazing.

Wednesday 21 May 2003

Wednesday - well, the Sunnydale in Buffy, and most of Florida in Enterprise have a lot in common now.

Watching cats is fun, sometimes. When they've been separated for an hour or two they are quite suspicious on meeting again. A careful stare, then a cautious sniffing of noses, and then of hind ends ensues. Since they've been together most of their lives this seems a little overboard. Was there some sort of "Attack of the Pod Cats" in cat prehistory?

Speaking of critters, while eating lunch today we saw several small sparrow fledglings that had fallen from a nest. One had died, but the other two were still alive. The nest was unreachable, and while the parents were still fighting off the occasional raven things looked bleak. So, my friend C took them home. Only to find another little lost flier at her house. So, now she had three! The vet says about a month before they can fly on their own....

Tuesday 20 May 2003

Tuesday - well, I assumed they'd kill off Buffy, but not so. Well, if it didn't work the first two or three times it was probably a good idea not to try it again.

Monday 19 May 2003

Monday - still tired.

Sunday 18 May  2003

Sunday - My sister and family arrived Saturday afternoon, and we all had a nice dinner out, followed by a trip to Disneyland the next day. Poor guys, they had to drive back to San Jose afterwards! A looonnng drive after a day spent in the sun at Disney.

I'd write more, but I'm beat. Maybe tomorrow.

Picture of the Week

Photo Notes: Portrait of the artist as a young girl. Riley does indeed have blue eyes (crossed as well) and dark ears. Note the phonetic spelling of Riley's name - the other cat, Phoebe, was spelled FEBEY. I'm impressed! Alas, I didn't take a picture of that drawing.
