Aerial display

Late yesterday I watched from my window as the reincarnated Red Baron and another World War ! fighter pilot buzzed and dive-bombed each other. I think they were having a grand time and no one got hurt. It seems one tries to buzz past the other one as close as he can get, but not touching. The whole show was a stunning display of the hummingbirds' incredible abilities in flight. I love to watch them and am happy to provide refreshments.

It wouldn't have been a good day for driving anywhere, so I stayed home and did laundry, including the bed sheets. I have a great system worked out - sleep on one side of the bed for a while, then in the middle, and then on the other side. That way I can go longer without having to change the sheets. That's a job I really dislike anyway.

It has been looking like rain today, but I think it will hold off until just before my appointment time tomorrow, so I can drive in it. I may not see any better in the rain, but I doubt I will see any worse.

I hope to have good news to report in tomorrow's entry. I hope it's good because I am getting a severe case of travel-itis!


  1. We have hummingbirds here in this park and we made sure we put up our feeder. Love watching them.

  2. I hope so too. Your experience has not been one to give me a lot of hope for my upcoming cataract surgery.

  3. "I am getting a severe case of travel-itis!"
    Now, how can you be getting a severe case of travel-itus with all the traveling around you have been doing on those bed sheets from one side to the other!!

  4. Your sheet system seems like a real winner. Who woulda thunk it? I hope tomorrow goes well! Can't wait to hear (read) about it.

  5. Ohh we love those hummers too! I have four hanging flower displays right out the patio doors and they come to buzz by and gobble the nectar. If we sit still under the plants, the hummers buzz around our heads!

    soooo waiting to see what your case of campitis will result in!

  6. Hi Gypsy,

    Wanted to thank you again for sharing some of your favorite blogs with me. I have been reading up on them the last couple of days, and I love them.

    Hope all goes well today. You will be in my thoughts.

  7. I just finished finally catching up on all the blogs I read after the exceedingly busy last week I've had. I hope everything turns out to your liking at the doctor's today. Hang in there!
