I need to get ready shortly to go get chest x-ray and then we have to go get Bill's holter off.
There is a little story that goes with this little guy. I was in other room and Bill was out here playing a game on computer.He starts waving at me to come out here. This little guy is sitting like this no moving a muscle
Finally he turns head a little Bill taps on window and he looks our way Then just as he starts to move he hears Bill open door.Noticed the bobbed tail It was so strange how still he was for so long.We think he had his eye on maybe one of those lizards. The pics have some reflection from window as it was late in afternoon and pics thru window never come out as good that late.
Now this guy was in front tree when we got home yesterday.Bill hurried in house and got my better camera. So birds are starting to come back
So thats it for now. I may go for a drive with Bill later and I will take better camera with me.Just in case. I always carry the small one with me but if I am going somewhere new I usually have both.Have a great day.We are suppose to get some much needed rain today

    I do not know who is best :you are that got this pic or cat that holds still and posed to you. Really you all three are good. I love your pictures.

One night, we just took this apartment, we had visitor in our app. I opened eyes and saw bid green eyes. It was night. I started to produce a lot of noise (my English is not good and I cannot spell good) Cat rushed out, could not find the way out, crashed my pot flowers, everything was dropped on the floor. My DH tried to calm down me, but it took time.
LOL. I did not have camera at that time so I could not get it.

    Hello! I am happy to be reading your blogs again after a visit with my grandsons! The cat in the picture reminds me of my daughter's cat...Mr. Sushi, green eyes and stub of a tail...Mr. Sushi's tail is shorter and he came from an animal shelter.

Well I am in a rambling mood today.
I just saw something that made me be thankful for my life even with all the crap that is going on now. After getting my hair cut I was on my way to pick up Bill for a late lunch. We have a lot of panhandlers that stake out certain red lights. I never give them anything because I seldom have any cash and most are not legit.Well one got me today.It was one woman pushing another woman in a wheelchair.The woman in the wheelchair had no legs from just above the knee. Remember it is brutally hot here.There was no way I couldn't give them something.Only all I had was $7.They were so gracious when I gave it to them.Then after we had lunch I went back that way and gave them $20. I didn't care if they were legit or not.They had to be in need to be out in that awful sun. Bill is always telling me if we ever won the lottery he would have to watch me or I would give it all away. But I don't have to get out on side of road and beg for help.
I have to go get a chest x-ray tomorrow because of wheezing. I know what it is. It is fluid.Nothing new there.
I went out to check the spanish dagger plant and it just isn't going to have blooms.Just squiggly looking stuff. But here is my last pic of it with it's guard
Another bright side is I did see a few birds out back today so maybe they will all return.
Ok It is nap time.I have to pick Bill up after work.Did I mention that his car died yesterday so we have to find another cheap one.

    You're such a sweetie! I'm sure the women were appreciative. I don't see too many homeless people around here. When I went to Washington, DC when I was about 14 I was shocked to see them all over. When the kids have food drives at school I always go out and buy lots of food because I know it's going to people who aren't as fortunate as us.

Interesting bloom on that plant. I'm a little disappointed that it didn't get flowers. I've been looking forward to seeing flowers. Oh well. The birds are pretty. You live in such a beautiful place!

Good luck car shopping. With the economy I'm sure you can find a deal.

    That is. You just could not pass these two people. I do not know is that good or it is bad. Sometimes I do give to people like that. More often I do not.

In my country it was custom to give to people food or candies to kids in memory of loved ones. I do not know why do we have this custom, but I do have dreams sometimes that my friends or relatives ask me for gift. So I do it. But in situation like that I am very concern every time is that right? Is it really person in need and there is no another way or it is just plays around our kindness and sensitivity? I do not know.

What I do know for sure that it is not for them it is for me. I need it, I need to give.
I think that why you do give them the $. Bill is right, he understands, he better to watch you. He understand that you need to give. He is very good man.

Hope he will find a car. It is difficult now. My boy is looking and cannot find one. Because recession people do not sell.
Best. Nice blog. Thank you

    That was really nice of you to give them the $

The dagger plants looks like a pine tree in the distances if you don't scoll pass the last few branches. And what a bonus today with the bird standing there. We have birds that look something like this but they are a dirty gray.

Hope they can get the fluid under control and good luck on the car hunt.

Have a great weekend coming up. Oh. and I did have a nice time at the game this afternoon. It started at noon and was over about 2:30. So I got to work on my tan a little. I tan easy and it winters over well too. So I always have a tan all year long. Another game tomorrow so hope there is another nice breeze like there was today.

Bye for now

    Sorry to hear about Bill's Car. The good thing is there should be some great buys out there right now.

I would have given them the money too, Eleni. God saw what you did for them and he will bless you.

Take care and have a great day tomorrow.

Loved the photos as usual. Hugs, Sunny

Glad you liked the dragon fly.It was just luck I got the pic. I just happened to look out window and saw it.I was on phone and had person wait while I took picture. What can I say.They could wait and I didn't know how long the dragonfly would stay there.
The birds are not back yet but I did see 2 blackbirds today.No singing yet and no other birds yet.I do hope they slowly come back.
I saw this little guy yesterday. He is just a baby. I thought he was going to eat my okra but didn't.Just wondered around.
I just lost a whole folder of pictures.Some are on a back up but some weren't.I have no idea what happened.
It is super hot here. Lots of warnings about the heat on TV.

    I'd freak if I saw a lizard like that in my yard!! I tell my husband if it doesn't have fur I don't like it. I get the heeby geebys.

I've lost photos before. I actually lost all my vacation photos one year. Just recently I lost a ton of pictures I took at my son's ball game. I was just being stupid that day.

I can only imagine how hit it is by you. It's 90 or so here. It's so thick outside I can't breathe. My son and husband are at ball practice right now. I stayed home because I have a horrible sore throat and I haven't been drinking. I'd drop like a fly out there.

Stay cool and drink plenty of fluids, that goes for Bill as well!!

    Wow - sorry you lost your photos. Hopefully they will show up.

Much cooler day here today and no forcast for storms.

Keep watching for the birds. Maybe it would help to hang a couple of
feeders in the tree.

Love you photo today. You are a great photographer. What kind of a
camera do you use?

Take care of yourself and Bill.

Hugs, Sunny

BTW - my twin sister joined spark today and I helped her set up her page.
It is Shar401. Can you stop by her page and say hi to her? I would appreciate it.

Hugs, Sunnyter

    So sorry you lost your pics, I do so enjoy your garden is also super hot here in South Texas! I'm staying indoors as much as possible , tho I do my walking at 6:30 am when it is still a little cool out.
For the past 2 days I have seen ladybugs in my van when I leave for work. I have been leaving the windows open a bit. Great way to start my day, with a ladybug on my steering wheel!

    I think that little critter would be more interested in finding a few tiny bugs on your okra, but he's not a vegetarian. I do hope your birds return. I have a robin who visits my fence daily and I believe has a nest in the tree behind me.

    I do not know what is the "okra". I hope you will pic it when it will bloom. I tried dic and it is not on it. .
I love your roses. I wish I have one but my window is out of sunshine.
The dragon fly is beautiful. It is difficult to get pic of it. You did it.
Thank you for sharing.

    The okra is so cute!! That's a cool picture of the bug. Is that a dragon fly? It almost looks plastic.

It just looks hot by you. Today was at least 90! I wouldn't know it though in the office. It was so cold in there today I had to put on my fleece jacket. Insane!

Have a great day. Stay in and stay cool.
