    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    Northern mockingbird? They repeat and then change tunes. It's fun to count the number of songs they know. Our starlings here have repetitive songs as well without the same frantic rhythm as the mockingbirds and they're fond of whistle. The flock here copies the brakes of the big diesel school busses. It's so strange. I correctly identified a juvenile starling who was all by his loneseome in my yard this morning. Since I was able to examine him for some time, I felt a LOT less like an idiot for not recognizing them in their winter plumage! The ones I raised never got their black / speckled feathers before they flew away. They look so much different without all those glossy black feathers!

    Just Like His Hands - More Small Things To Talk About

    You can clearly see the problem. Much easier to rearrange the entire room than to move the Thunder Kat.

    I have tried blanket removal and this did not solve the problem. However, after a long talk with TK, the following solution was reached. Please note, I have bad handwriting and it says, "SHEET" Exhibit B

    Burning through some YA that also features talking cats. The Lazy Girl's Guide to Magic series by Helen Harper, thank you @kairparavel. Finished book I and II, III is a rougher read. May go back to the adventures of Mr. Marmee after this. I've also got a Delaney on my backlog, but my brain hurts from grading right now. The fluff is a nice break. Kitteeeeez.

    Why are beds so damn small? I'm only 5'6 and my bed is too short. I've had some shoulder problems causing me to use more pillows, later at night, I scooch down, not far, maybe like 6 inches. If I try to stretch out, my feet are over the end of the bed. If I scooch up, my feet are in the cat's way. This is ridiculous. A bed should be at LEAST a foot longer. What on earth do tall people do? Here is a diagram of my troubles.

    Sorry! It's The Case of Jack the Nipper (A Chronicle of Mr. Marmee) by H.L. Stephens. Very victorian language. I spent several pages SEVERAL times waiting for an exhausted character to have some tea to revive his spirits before conveying news. I was all, "OUT WITH IT AND STOP EATING THAT PUFF PASTRY RIGHT NOW!!!" Edit: @Starkness NOT FAMILIAR WITH BRAUN! :runs off to look for her:

    Taking a break from Serious to read a cat detective mystery. It's fun.

    How in the world can you tell those waterthrushes apart or from sparrows or finches, btw. Also, why is the Louisiana Waterthrush up there and why does it only migrate over Louisiana. Happy Birding my friend!
