This morning there were three hawks hanging out by my pool. I noticed two at first, and then the third joined them. I'm not sure why they were there, but I did see one a few months ago before the pool was open. There were a few inches of water in the cover and he was bathing in it, so I wonder if they were thinking they could do it now. It's a little deep for a casual bird bath though.

My brother, his wife, and their two daughters are now gone for the weekend. It was a little outside of what I'm used to, considering that it's just me and George, but it was nice seeing them.

I'd heard he played it a little, but I don't think I've ever listened to him on electric, will check it out.

I do remember coming across this pic, though...

Fellow USA-ians: Happy Independence Day!

Celebrate your independence by tearing down the things that no longer work for us.

Pleasant evening at my parents' place. It's cooled off, and there's a nice breeze.

I was in Home Depot the other day, and there were lots of birds chirping inside. I understand that they can be a nuisance, but the sound was kind of a nice touch.
