Betsy sent me pictures of the pileated woodpeckers at the feeder in her father’s driveway in Queensbury NY.  AMAZING!  Now I am jealous of Betsy and her father.  They look huge.  I’ve never seen anything like them, outside of a cartoon!

I’m applying for a job as a census worker and I’m taking a test in a couple of hours.  It may sound strange, but it sounds like a fun job to me.  I am so nervous about this test though.  The problem is, you have to take the test in under 30 minutes, and even though the questions are all easy, they are also easy to get wrong if you don’t read the question very carefully.  And I’m not as fast as I used to be.  But if I get the job, I think I might be assigned to my neighborhood. That would be great if it were true. I’d meet most of my neighbors for the first time.
