Baby Blue

The other night during a lull in the heavy rain, Brian ran across the yard to turn a pump off. On the way back, he saw a little parakeet sitting on one of our metal chairs. At the same time, Millie the cat, saw the little fellow. Brian scooped Millie up and brought her to the utility room. Then Brian went out and caught the wet bird. He brought it to me and we wrapped it in a cloth while he drove out to Kim's to fetch an old bird cage. We cleaned it up and put the pretty, white parakeet in the cage. There is only one house in the neighborhood with children and they say it wasn't their pet. So, he is now ours. I am trying to tame him enough to sit on my finger and eventually get out of the cage but he is pretty wild right now. It isn't easy to take a picture because he will not be still but here he is. Brian named him Baby but since every time he walks through the kitchen and says "Hi Baby," I answer him as usual, I changed it to Baby Blue. He was nearly all white with just a little blue on his belly and a smidge of black on his wings. He is growing more blue feathers and I suppose he will be mostly blue.

Our Future

PLEASE read the article below written by a constitutional attorney after he read the proposed health care bill. PLEASE get a copy of it to your friends who still do not see the danger. We cannot be timid. I know people who absolutely refuse to read or learn about anything that contradicts their politician's or party's line. Some people just don't think that anyone would actually do any thing that would be this f-a-a-a-a-rrrrrr out. Well, they are trying. They really are.

Pink Saturday

I am sorry this is being posted late in the morning but here is a beautiful peacock suncatcher that hangs in a window here by my computer. I found it at Charleston when visiting one of the plantations. These pretty birds lived in their gardens. The dingle-dangles are a pretty pink. Enjoy your weekend and remember to visit other pinks posts at HowSweetTheSound.
