I had started this post last night, and didn’t want to scrap all the work it took.
Another try at fussing with photos. Yesterday, while entering a park in Camp Dennison (Thanks, Katdoc, for showing me where the “legal” birding area was) I noticed a strange sound when I walked.
I looked down and the sole of my boot was slowly vacating the premises. Good thing I had another pair of shoes in the car.
After all the healing this tree has been doing, why would someone carve the words “HOW DO I LIVE” into its tender inner skin? I guess the dork was trying to be deep or something, but I think a person who does this needs a class in silvaculture.
I uploaded Firefox, because I heard in one of the forums that it might work.

I finally got lucky photographing a golden-crowned kinglet. These little pips are about as small as our largest hummingbird. And fussy and flitty. But there were a large number around me suddenly, so it was easy to get a good shot.
What a relief to find a stream unspoiled by human trash and slime. It even smelled good, like moss and wet stone and winter.
I was so inspired after my walk, after the girls got home from school, we made chocolate chip cookies. Well, one BIG cookie. I couldn’t find my square pans, so we plopped it into a 9 ” round cake pan. Gooey and delicious.
I didn’t know it, but this is National Delurking Week (found out through John’s blog, who found through another blog, blah blah blah.).
Lurkers are folks who read a blog regularly, but never leave a comment. I’m sure I have some lurkers…on my SiteMeter, there are folks who come around daily but aren’t making their presence known.
So, if you read my blog alot but don’t speak up, now is the time to start. I like comments. I like the people who visit my blog , as long as they mind their manners and act like they have some sense.
Time to come out of the closet!
