She Who Sees Robins First is my sister in law, she is married to my other baby brother and they live next door. She always sees Robins before me…always.
I am kind of a nut about dates..Phenology..keeping track of the the date each year something occurs.
2008 She April 05….Me April 19 ( I thought about taking remedial Robin sighting classes that year.)
2009 She April 11…Me April 11 ( It was really close ..about an hour apart..she defeated me again..but I held out hope that I was gaining on her.)
2010 She April 02…Me April 05 ( I fell three days behind.)
2011 She ( Oh sometime last week I saw four of them)..Me April 04 at 7 PM.
I took a photo out the window. This one was eating something..the line that carries the hot water from the outdoor wood furnace to the house runs through here..the Daylilies are peeking their noses up and perhaps there are a few worms stirring. This Robin spent a long time poking around in the yard.
So I am foiled again..maybe next year I will see them first…I don’t have such a good track record..in fact I have no win record. Before I started keeping track of the exact dates..she would stop by and report a sighting well before I ever saw one.
We came along this accident right after it happened yesterday..the truck driver was out and moving around just fine. It was very windy and his semi left the road went into the ditch and drove over an approach..it must have been a wild ride. On our way back home the traffic was stopped while a wrecker was maneuvering the semi out of the ditch..you can see it over the Troopers shoulder. We turned around and took an alternate route. We were a little closer..but Far Guy didn’t take any photos.
Now to answer your question..Does Far Guy read my blog? Most days he does, then I will write something that pisses him off and he will boycott me for awhile. I have explained to him about “Free Speech” and he agrees..he also agrees that just because I write something ..he does not have to read it. I do not hold him hostage and force him to read it. The opinions expressed on this blog are mine and only mine..and Far Guy does not always agree with me. Sometimes he will say “Stop writing about me.” So I do for awhile till he gets cooled off and I get out of the dog house. I do use restraint most days..now if it was “the pooping “ comment that made you wonder..well everyone poops.. some people just take their pooping more serious than others:)
