She Keeps Coming Back To Visit
This is my little buddy who came around when she was barely able to fly. We are a good source of food as far as she is concerned, and she has learned not to be afraid of me with my little camera. When things get down and nasty and there are in-laws everywhere, I find myself turning to the birds like this little jewel lately.
And if you really want to feel good, Echomouse has a neat post about rescuing chipmunks complete with a picture of a chipmunk on a kayak being rescued. There are times when you just need to cheer your way through a good animal rescue story and most, but not all of her commenters oblige us with stories of their own. EM just finished a long trip. Unfortunately, she drove North from where she lives in Canada. I had hoped she might come South, directly to Washington, DC for a visit. A very subtle hint, like a 30 pound sledge hammer.
Now, I always sneak over to Odat's to feel good. For example, every Monday is Happy Monkey Monday. And then Odat does her thing. Odat is on my list. I don't actually have a list. Admiral Perry, the guy who went to both the North and South Pole made lists popular. He actually had going to both poles on his life's goals list, as well as seeing every continent.
On my list, one item would be meeting Odat. She has to be one of the most cheerful, happy, positive people on Earth. I like having that in my life.
I guess the issue becomes who would you like to meet, and what do you do to feel better?
