Water Water Everywhere #53 – Fernandina

Walking along the beach at Fort Clinch State Park In Fernandina, Florida at sunset. A shrimp boat was coming in or maybe going out on a night run. Birds were all over the boat while Pelicans sat and observed from the rock jetty.

Song Lyric Sunday – “I Like Birds” by Eels

This week I chose 2 songs. The first one is by Eels called “I Like Birds”. The second one is “Bird Dog” by The Everly Brothers. Two very different songs but I couldn’t make up my mind.

I’ll Connect You

Written for VJ’s Weekly Challenge #122 – the phone call. “This is the operator, I have a collect call from John Doe, do you accept the charges?” Sarah was trying to decide what to do. She didn’t know a John Doe. She didn’t know… Continue Reading “I’ll Connect You”

Bird Weekly – Photo Challenge – Birds in color and Mono

Birds are hunted for sport and for eating. While my opinion is exceptionally one-sided, I do not condone the killing of birds for sport. I know that it is necessary to thin species out like big wild game such as deer and elk, but I don’t see the point of it unless it is to put food on the table. Many of our favorite edibles are farm raised. For many years, these birds have been kept in small quarters and not allowed to graze and be happy birds. In the last few decades, awareness has shown new trends of “grass fed”, “organic fed” “no hormones or antibiotics” and “happy free range” which indicates these birds have a happy life while they are here. It keeps them from being stressed out and makes our food a lot tastier.

Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #24

Last week’s birds were inspired by our American Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrated yesterday! I didn’t eat turkey which is tradition.

An American Thanksgiving

On October 3, 1789, George Washington created the first Thanksgiving Day designation by the national government of the United States of America for all citizens to observe this day of thanks.

The View – Haiku

To see through one’s eye
the vision of life’s wonder
viewing true beauty.

Water Water Everywhere #52 – Tampa Bay

The lumps in the water are the Manatees coming up for air which they do every 20 minutes or less. They are large marine mammals known as sea cows.

Song Lyric Sunday – “Husbands & Wives” by Roger Miller & Others

Husbands and Wives is a mid-tempo waltz in the key of C major. It is about a couple who is breaking up. With both parties having too much pride in themselves to reconcile.
