My mom is 75 today.

Fear stifles our thinking and actions. It creates indecisiveness that results in stagnation. I have known talented people who procrastinate indefinitely rather than risk failure. Lost opportunities cause erosion of confidence, and the downward spiral begins.― Charles Stanley

Sit in reverie and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go. - Dr. Seuss

Dovelet and #1 have gotten a reprieve ... I just listed them on Craigslist. So, we'll see if they sell.

I've had one nibble on the doves' ad, but no one has showed up. And, still waiting on FreeCyclers - I don't know why I bother with that site. Mostly flakers ...

I got the IRS transcripts requested for the stupid PG&E. It'll be about ten days before I get the info back from the IRS to send to PG&E. And, then, I have to wait to see if it's been approved ... damn invasive red tape ...

I just signed up to volunteer at two Tuleyome events later in the month. To help out with the 'Birds and Beaks' seminars for kids at a couple of local libraries. Just got confirmation and set up times. It's been a loooong time since I've done this kind of stuff. I used to do ring set up at dog shows in the '80s. Similar.

I just foraged for the bunnies' dinner. Don't let MonSatan and their cronies con you into eradicating/poisoning 'weeds' - it is FOOD. This is enough to feed 5 rabbits and 3 hamsters their dinner. Or, at least 4 big salads for a human!
FOOD, not 'weeds'
More to forage in the morning for their breakfast, before I go to work!

I think I found some good versions of the 2 Sherlock Holmes stories I'd already listened to that had a monotonous female reader. I'm listening to A Study in Scarlet now and this version is much better. Male readers fit these stories better, I think.

One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes... and the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.― Eleanore Roosevelt
