The wind that the weather reports promised for last night never happened, although it did pick up this afternoon. We did have an Amber alert at 3:00AM. They always seem to happen in the middle of the night, and even though my phone says "No Service" it picks them up and rings at full volume. Sure wakes one up, although the message on my iPhone goes away when I open it (which I automatically do when it rings in the middle of the night) so all I know is it was for a van in Arizona.

No photographs today - just about all I did was go for my walk, read, hit the librarry, and make a run to the dumpsters. While I was reading I saw/heard the strangest hummingbird yet. It never stopped at the feeder, but flew by about 4' off the ground screaming! While I've often heard them chirp, this was a continuous shriek! Almost sounded like a bullet going by. I wasn't sure what it was the first time since it went by so fast, but it made two more passes. Might have been a different type of hummingbirds from what I've been seeing, but it was so fast I never got a good look at it.

That was all the excitement for the day!

Dinner will be a sandwich made with the other half of the chicken breast from last night, and broccoli.

Until tomorrow -
