So put a box together, most of the stuff is already in your house, camping gear works great and is available at yard sales every where there is one. Cheap flashlights, a few cell phone charges, water, and a stove it doesn't have to be stored in a box, but it's convenient when it is. It will convert an uncomfortable experience into one that is easily managed.
It's a bit difficult to focus on any subject other than politics lately, alas the birds have saved the day, indeed the week. The young Blue Heron swooped toward the Egret on the far side of the slough, it was surprising to say the least. It's hard telling why it happened, I certainly am at a lose for words; the only reason may be due to the Herons young age. He is a beautiful bird however, one that will only gain in stature as it inherits a part of the river.
He came out from under the workbench never minding the noise and sawdust cascading down upon him. I guess the Cat living under the house doesn't worry the small guy in the least.
I am ready to start, we are now at the mercy of a dump truck driver, these are the people it is important to make a good first impression to, otherwise I may end up with no dirt, it's a wicked web we weave. The main goal is to be completely set up to plant the garden in it's new arraignment in April of next year.
All in All it is exciting to think a Megalasaur may still exist in the deepest most remote spot in the Oceans; there appears to be a bit of evidence leading in that direction as well.
After all how could a Snow White Egret be a threat to anything when in actuality they are a danger to all small living things. The bands of small birds constantly chasing them tells the true story of their threat. This Heron sat on the Pylon for a long while. Skunkpuppy did not see it if she had the perch would be empty, we don't tolerate anything simply minding their own business.
I did not find any relief after hearing the BART supervisor's non-apology; but hey we only ride the things they don't. As she said and I understand "It's very demoralizing for a Supervisor to have to come out and apologize," I understand that it is especially hard when that spokesperson is Bay Area Elite, and it's presented with a look on her face dominated by body language. It must be rough when an elected official has to own up to an injustice perpetrated on one of us.
