|The Luna Moth came again last night to beat against the window|
The hawk swoops through the woods at least daily. Haven't seen the hummer either, but I did scour the feeder and change the water yesterday. One dove appeared in the bushes next to the front porch where I put out seed for the baby chipmunks.
In the middle of town last week, I saw a Kildeer far from any water. And we have young geese (watch out for the hawks!) and wild turkeys about. And mosquitoes big time with all the #**! rain. And sometime is eating all the oak leaves AND the newly set out petunias. Sometimes being a gardener is for the birds. Ooops! They have all disappeared.
I have been getting a manuscript ready to send to a publisher who may or may not like it. Yesterday I did the dedication, acknowledgements, a one page bibliography of sources that "informed" the writing, and brief write-ups of the history and technology at the time of the novel. These days, you can't assume anyone know jackshit. Sorry, but it's true.
Can't wait to see the new Woody Allen movie, which doesn't explain all. You have to know who Tom, Ernie, Gertrude and Scott are. Do YOU?
Grapeshot, in a somewhat bad mood which will soon pass.
