Wood storks in flight overhead today.....

quite a majestic bird...well, except for the bald head, which is wrinkled & black, while the wings & body are beautiful white feathers.

They look old..but wise.

I kept casual shoes in the hallway just inside that door and the wasp had snuggled all the way up into the toe. My toe pushing into it must have defeated the worst part of the sting. But it still itched and swelled. Since then I do not put my foot into any shoe from any room or closet without tapping and making sure it's empty.

Glad you didn't step on your red wasp.
Definitely. If anyone wants to have nightmares, just do a Google search of "recluse spider bite" then click on "Images" on the upper left.

Black birds bathing in the front yard sprinkler this morning. They were even lifting their little wings to get the hard to reach spots.

Neighbor's dog in our backyard yesterday.

A German shepherd. Had to chase it out. "Sorry," he says.

Sorry doesn't cut it if it kills the harmless tomcat that hangs out back there. Cat's okay though.

Friendships between dogs and porcupines were not meant to be, no matter how nice your dog is. Just ask my vet.

Drove on the highway for about five hours today, so saw lots of squirrels, birds, and a couple of deer.
