People Send Me Pictures!

Barbara sent me more pictures of the bird I’m pretty sure is a made-up bird. Doesn’t it look like something out of a cartoon? I probably said that the last time. But look at this guy. Not real!

So I read this on TV Tattle:

“SYTYCD will pair 10 contestants with past all-stars. Mia Michaels will return as judge and choreographer as So You Think You Can Dance undergoes several changes, including the reduction of finalists to 10 dancers who will be paired with all-stars.”

Well, Mia coming back is great. And I love the idea that we will see past favorites again, but if they’re not my favorites this could be annoying. But I will withold judgement. I’m open to experimentation.

More pictures! Karen sent me this picture of Holden Beach, North Carolina. What do you think Rick? Pretty restful looking. I should have explored outside Durham.

  1. Beautiful sunset!

    That’s prime beach-waterfront($$$). Do you play the lottery? Yes, agreed – you should have rented a car & gone to the coast – or to the mountains.

    Even more weird (weirder?) than the appearance of the pileated woodpecker is the sound they make. Great pic too – look at those serious holes!

  2. Rick, our friends bought their cottage back in the ’80’s for a pittance (probably around $100K for four bedrooms and two baths, second row, but no house in front of them). I think the latest appraisal came in around $600K. I’m very, very lucky to have them for friends as I got to stay there for five days for free! In season, it rents for $1400 a week.

    I’m now in the hunt for a friend or friends who have a cottage in the mountains so I can see if I can swing the same deal.

    Stacy, my feeders (all six) are down for the season so I can concentrate on repairing the garden. So I’ll have to depend on you to post more bird pictures this summer.

  3. Oh no! I’ve decided I need to save money, so I was going to stop feeding the birds. I feel terrible about it! But unexpected expenses (I’m looking at you ChemoCat …).
