Captain’s Log 5,606
Dang! I was too busy yesterday to take any pictures. It was that kind of day. Erg. Maybe today.
I went outside this morning and found a poor little dove that had broken its neck crashing into the patio door. That’s the hazard of having glass in a birded area. Every now and then, there is an accident like this. When I lived in the other big house (with the infernal crows), a Cooper’s hawk smashed into the patio door and broke its neck. I picked up Mr. Dove and took him out to the trash. I said a little blessing to let bird heaven know he was on the way. And then I hosed down the area. Poor little thing.
I decided to join the hype last night and started reading this series that I bought as a Christmas gift to myself.
After an hour into it, I realized I had started with the wrong book. I assumed they would be boxed in order. I was wrong. So…..the FIRST book is Game of Thrones. Not the gold one about clashing kings. DUH! My set was boxed GOLD GREEN BLUE RED. I must admit I like it even though I profess to despise this genre. We shall see. And it pays to read the cover notes so you know where to start. Apparently, there is a 5th book that ties up the whole story. One step at a time here. I don’t want to get overly confident.
Off to climb more ladders. Things did not go well yesterday because someone from the Confederacy lost the keys to our truck. It took us four hours to correct the issue. What should have been delivered to the museum around 10:00 in the morning did not arrive until almost 2:00 in the afternoon. When I asked the offending Confederacy member to help us out today to make up for the time we lost, my voicemail was ignored. Typical. Why can’t people take responsibility for their mistakes anymore? WHY???????
