mourning doves


outside my office window.  They really do sound so sad.  They aren’t- or shouldn’t be as they are building nests for the little ones.  They should be happy at the imminent blessed events.   We had one couple last year that had two different sets of babies. Made a mess on my porch for sure with all the baby poop.  The interesting thing was that the mother sat as still as a statue for a month or more while the babies were in the shell.  I was amazed at her stamina.   And no cramped limbs, to boot! At least I didn’t hear her complain.

Feeling bad


Been sick and no motivation to update the blog.   I’ve been working hard on the latest novel and now that its done, I may knock out a short story or two.  While I wait for the inspiration for the next full length story.   IF I ever get to feeling like myself again, that is.  I’m counting the minutes til I can sleep.  For a long time.

Changed my theme


I decided to change the theme of the background to this blog.  The other one seemed to be too popular. Lots of bloggers using it.  I liked it a lot but it was time to mix it up a bit. 

Had a hearing today in my real life role of attorney.  I have to say that the judge surprised me.  I had filed a motion saying the judge made some errors. I figured I’d lose my head.  He’d yell at me and my head would fall off and roll out his chamber door and go down the stairs. Thump, thump, thump.  

Anyway, to my shock, he agreed with me on the two things I said he erred in.  So, then, it was a matter of holding myself in the chair and not falling onto the floor in shock.   In the grand scheme of things, it didn’t make a bit of difference but I was glad to see him “man up.”

Check out the Japanese magnolia at my office:
