Hello to all! I have been back in the art room, working on more of my recycled sheet metal pieces (pictures to come soon)! My days are a little better now. As some of you know, we lost our kitty a few days back. Denver has been with me, letting me know that everything is OK!
I wanted to share a funny story about something that happened to me this morning as I was driving to work. As I was heading down a road outside of town, I noticed a bird, what I believe to be a sandpiper (sorry I didn't have the camera with me!!), with wings spread far apart and running on those long legs straight for the front of my car!! I couldn't believe my eyes! I thought he must be a little crazy and couldn't figure out what he was doing! There was another adult bird standing behind him and neither one of them was in a hurry to get out of the road. As I slowed down, I noticed a tiny little baby sandpiper behind them, about 4 inches tall, and just hanging out in the middle of the road! You should have seen this little thing!! It looked like a fuzzy grey furr ball on top of 2 tiny toothpick stilts! HA HA!! He was all legs!! This was one of the cutest sights I have ever seen! Now I know why the adult was acting a little nutty!! As I came to a complete stop, I flagged the car down behind me, and we let them pass in front of us and off of the road. This made my day!! Unfortunately, I did not have my camera, so I decided that I will grab it and head out a little later to see if they are hanging out again!!
This was one of the best mornings! I will cherish this experience always and I know that a camera is a must and needs to be with me whenever I go out of the house!!
Here's wishing all of you a wonderful day full of those extra special surprises!!
