#1 THE ORIGAMI CALENDAR CHALLENGE – PHEASANTDSC07094I don’t know, but this pheasant sort of looks like a pigeon to me. But the object of origami is to fold, not to question. So fold I did!DSC07099


And then the dumb pigeon tried to fly away!


I managed to get 1, 2, and 3 in a half blink. Still working on 4.


It should have been a note reminding me to stay in bed. But instead it was a note reminding me to go to the eye-guy for my annual check-up. Actually, my eye-guy is a very nice young lady who treats me so respectfully, you’d think I was a crotchety old man … which is a state I am fast approaching. Anyway to make matters worse, the minute I walked out the door I was bombarded with a blitzkrieg of assorted pollens, spoors, and allergens that turned me into an eye-watering, sneezing, wheezing fool. In other words by the time I got to the doctor’s office I was a puffy-eyed dolt with a runny nose. Which was really not the best impression you want to make when visiting anyone of the medical professions. Well, after an hour of eye-dilation, eye photography, flashing lights, looking up, down, side ways and doing eye rolls that would have out eye rolled Eddie Cantor … does anyone even remember Eddie Cantor much less his eye rolls … my doctor announced: “Your eyes are in great shape, and your prescription remains the same.”  Which means I didn’t have to spend the income tax return money I had stashed aside to buy a new computer on new glasses. Ok, if my eyes were in such great shape, why did I walk out of the office wearing dark sunglasses like one of the three blind mice and had to grope my way across the street in the glaring 93 degree sunlight? Also, why is there never a boy scout around to guide you across the street when you need one?

Yes, you heard me right, the thermometer reached a high of 93F this afternoon. This was the highest temperature we’ve seen in the past eight months. But it won’t last long, the rains are returning sometime around sunset today.

Also, when I got home this is what I found on my back lawn …DSC07089

Yep, a lawn filled with maple tree twirlers!
