No not the kind you drive. The kind that fly and hover. Two days ago I thought it was about time to make sugar water for the hummingbird feeders. As it was cooling off I sat out on the porch to watch Henrietta worry the squirrel feeder. Wellllll I got buzzed by a hummer! He chittered at me as if to say, "Hey, where's the food?" When the solution was cool enough I filled both feeders and put them out. No sooner had I hung the first one when the little guy came to drink. Guess maybe he's the forward scout? Haven't seen any others yet. I'm hoping for more to show up and can't wait to be entertained by their antics. They are sooo territorial!
I'm off to the gallery today. Haven't been there in two weeks and have missed it a lot. I miss the comraderie there. Can't remember if I mentioned that one of the gals has been diagnosed with breast cancer. A small spot, but malignant (stage 1). It's coming out in a few days and she may or may not have to undergo Chemo. Seems I know too many now with the big C. Don't know if it's the HRT they've been taking to avoid the side effects of menopause, or maybe it's all the perservatives and chemicals in the foods we eat. Either way, it sucks. My friend's attitude is incredibly upbeat and she is considering this a learning experience. We will all learn with her.
That's it for today, I guess. Need to get a move on. Y'all have a great day and remember:
"If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague."
