ON THE BACK BURNER

April 25

Where has a ukulele been all of my life. I am working diligently on my ukulele. I go on YouTube and scroll through beginner ukulele lessons. I play around for about an hour, when I look at the clock and say that I can’t do this all day. So I stop , because now that I think about it, my finger tips are beginning to hurt from the strings. But I still sit. I watch the birds.  A Blue Jay and something that looks  like a sparrow, and a pilated woodpecker seem to be friends. That woodpecker is usually close behind the Jay. I wonder if they have some kind of a symbiotic relationship. The  sparrow just flits around. Doesn’t seem to have a plan. Sometimes a pack of egrets are pecking around. I haven’t seen any Sand Hill Cranes in awhile, but I hear them. The golf course caretaker comes occasionally with his black Lab to scare the birds away. I think that the Lab is a reluctant participant in his job description. He seems so  much happier when riding in the golf cart.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
