Well....it's happened. I've crossed over to the other side and am now in possession of my first prescription for (gulp) eyeglasses. I can't see up close anymore and my arms just won't get any longer to hold the stuff at a comfortable distance to see it clearly. Now, dear readers, don't get all excited... it's just a prescription for readers so I don't have to wear them all the time. I asked the doc if I could just skip on over to RiteAid and get some of those $10 readers and he said "you're eyes are not exactly the same and you really are at the point where you need the proper lens for each eye." I bet you say that to all the girls, doc.
My friend, Mr. Baltimore Oriole is back. He always shows up around Mother's Day and stays for a few weeks. I'm not sure if this is just a temporary stop on his migration northward but I love it when he is here. He loves oranges and yesterday he and his mate ate 2 whole ones. The feeder is a simple 2x4 cut with dowels to land upon and finish nails to hold the oranges. It has a simple roof painted bright orange to attract them. Isn't he a handsome bird? I also had a hummingbird check out the orange yesterday. You can just see him entering the photo on the right and I apologize that the picture is so dark.
