Good Morning! Celebrate Memos and Waiters!

Today is National Memo Day and National Waitresses/Waiters Day.  So I celebrated by taking a memo and going out to breakfast and treating our waitress very kindly.  I will probably go out for supper also, since there is no food in the house.  We live far enough out that you don't just want to go into town for groceries.  Usually you are hungry before you leave the house even, so you have to stop to eat when you get in town.
As I left the house I was serenaded by an early morning singing song outside my door.
I tried doing a memo from my phone, but the file didn't convert, so I turned it into a video instead.  The birds aren't as loud as they were in "person".
By the way, the azalea is in a pot sitting in our backyard.  I bought it a number of years ago, probably like 5 years ago, and we didn't get around to planting it.  We stuck the pot in the back yard by the edge of the woods and left it all winter.  I thought for sure it would die.  But it didn't.  And now it has been, like I said, about 5 or more years.  It blossoms like crazy, and I'm afraid to try to move it. The roots must have gone out the bottom of the plastic pot it was sold in.  I just enjoy it from the kitchen window, and let it be.  Maybe sometime we'll build a raised garden around it.  I usually kill plants, so I'm kind of leery about trying to help it at all.  It's doing just fine without me.

Azalea's petals
Gently dropping.
Buzzing bee
Getting the last
Of the goodness.
Robins out of sight
But not out of sound,
Trill, flute, and
Shout glad tidings.
Squeeze toy Phoebe
Raspily squeaks
And happily listens
For a like minded reply.
Close your eyes.
You can't see them
They are there
Just wrap yourself in
The delightful


  1. Like the eating out a lot, but I have no excuse as you do-live too near the grocery. I like that 'squeeze toy phoebe', lovely. And your view out the window is so beautiful. I hope you have a great day!

  2. Great clip. What a wonderful view. And the sound . . . so peaceful.
