Creaky body update

Today the sun is out, and a morning dove just landed on my office window sill, giving my cat Zoe the thrill of her life. The dove coo’d and Zoe did her little meow-clack-meow-clack sound she makes when she spots Prey. This didn’t worry the dove terribly because even doves are smart enough to know that there’s a barrier between her and the Predator.

The amazing bird tree across the road is just filled with a variety of bird life today — mockingbirds, cardinals, chickadees, doves, you name it. I don’t know what it is about this tree that collects all the birds from the neighborhood. I do know if the apartment ever made moves to cut it down, I would chain myself to it.

Speaking of chains, pretty much desk and bed bound at this point in time. My back has worsened, to the point of waking me up at night. However, one thing in my favor is that Advil works especially well with me…and there’s always my margaritas at night. For medicinal purposes, of course.

Yes, as soon as I get my next advance, I am going to the doctor. I hear you all making this suggestion with a certain amount of exasperation in your voices.

But, oh, this day was made for hiking…
