Patience.

1 They just won't stop talking

Bird mothers seem to have amazing patience. This momma seemed totally unfazed by the non-stop tweeting and chirping that was taking place in front of her.

Birds don’t have teeth, so I don’t know what the equivalent of gritting your teeth is for them. As I said earlier though, they seem very patient so maybe they don’t need any coping methods. I tried many coping techniques and hands down, the winner was chocolate.

 

Tippy-tippy toe-tippy toe.

While visiting my son and daughter-in-law in Montana some time back, we went to the National Bison Range. The bison were all grouped up in one small area of the range, but out of nowhere, elk would pop up.WM 5404 Bull Elk

The scary thing about some of these elk is that they walk on their tiptoes. One minute they’re not there and the next minute…surprise!  Without using just their toes, how else could they sneak up so quietly? I admit, I’ve never seen them walking on tiptoe but that doesn’t mean they don’t. Just because we can’t SEE little green men walking amongst us, you wouldn’t deny their existence would you? I rest my case.

Now if you will excuse me, I need to go take my invisible dog for a walk…anybody out there have chocolate? I think I might be a quart low…

Every once in a while, I need a little “Florida fix.”  I pretend I’m there, staring at the little lone palm tree…wondering if it sweats when the days get so hot. Do palm trees sweat? I’m without chocolate…can you tell? I guess i’ll just have to go eat some………FRUIT!!      What is the world coming to?

Cat on a hot laptop.

You can’t see my laptop in this image can you?

I CAN’T SEE IT AND I’M SITTING IN FRONT OF IT!

Those of you with cats know how it goes…turn the computer on and out of nowhere the cat appears. He demands his rightful place on the keyboard. We negotiate, I clear him lots of nice space on my desk. No.

After I gently nudge him to the edge of the laptop ten times, he is offended when I restrict him to the floor. We’re both tired and frustrated. I will eat chocolate, he will have to make due with a bug he just found on the floor.
