You never know what you will see in the tree tops around here.
Silly big bird sat up there adjusting his balance with every wind that blew.
Very amusing to watch, but watch out if you walk under that tree!
And then there are the messy geese who arrive with much honking
and pooing. One of them was not like the others.
I can't help but wonder where this goose came from?
Oh, the mysteries of nature.
In other news most of our educational endeavors are going well. The only thing not all ducky is Driver's Ed. I have decided that I do not enjoy riding in the car with people who do not know how to drive.
I am not sure why it is not required to prominently place some sort of signage on the vehicle warning those in the near vicinity that they should take great caution and give a wide berth. My husband is doing all the passenger riding and instructing. The kids have a contest to see who can make my mild mannered man shout the most. The oldest thinks he holds the record for now, but it remains to be seen if he is the ultimate victor. I have my doubts.
We went to see a Christian comedian Tim Hawkins last weekend. Are you familiar with him? The youth group was going and so Mike and I decided to make a date of it, too. This is not our typical sort of entertainment, but it was fun despite the fact that I got a Laugh Headache from all the jocularity. Is a Laugh Headache an introverted phenomenon or if it is just a Leslie phenom?

My neighborhood book club just finished reading The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak and we got the opportunity to go hear the author speak. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Imagine a cute, young father type who is humble, funny and has an Australian accent. I started enjoying the book even more after he told us the book is a combination of memories his parents have from when they lived in Germany as children during WWII.
The event was hosted by a library in a near-by city. Every year they choose one book that all the book clubs read and then they fly the author in for a variety of events for the public to attend. This idea has really caught on so several cities around the Metroplex do this now and I plan on going to another event next month with my other book club. Do city libraries do this where you live? I think this sort of thing suits me better than comedians do.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend and enjoying doing the things you love best!
