Yesterday, the Owl woke me up from my nap. Not really, because she's like a thousand miles away from here now, but I was sleeping and I must've dreamed she was out in the living room talking to Hubs, which woke me up. Ah, the things our brains do.
Looking for something different to listen to, I loaded my Paul Simon Graceland CD. Now it's stuck in my head. On random. And repeat.
Years ago, on the MDA Labor Day Telethon, Tony Orlando sang 'Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes' from that album. I'll never forget it because he screwed up the words. Instead of 'slipped into her pocket with her car keys' he said 'slipped into her pocket and took her car keys'. ROFL Now every time I hear that song, I think of that. My brain works in mysterious ways.
Does anyone even remember spending the whole of Labor Day watching the telethon? All that talent and music and fun pulling for a cause. Sometimes Dad would take us to where the fireman were filling their boots with donations so we could throw some change in the boot. Does anyone do that anymore? Do they even have a telethon? I don't want to think about what it's turned into/ The last time I watched, it was lame and talentless and boring as hell. I miss Jerry Lewis.
The fawns are losing their spots. :sadface: The buck fawns will start to get antler buds soon, but right now, they all look like little does. They're also starting to show their independence and moving away from their moms. Good thing, too, because they have to be on their own before the rut comes. It seems early for losing the spots, but what do I know. Does this mean an early winter? Time will tell.
I found another itty-bitty, teeny-tiny snake on my walk the other day. I never did figure out what kind it was. Black head, tan/taupe body. Definitely non-venomous because the head was in line with the body. Might've been a northern red-bellied snake, but since I didn't turn it over, I'll never know. I just picked it up by the tail and moved it out of the road. It was totally chill.
Okay, that's enough out of me today. What's up with you?
