July 09, 2007


It started Friday afternoon, and continued sporadically through the night, and then all day Saturday. A good slow rain that didn't come equipped with flash floods or tornadoes or lightning, and I have to tell you, it sure was nice.

Although you've all come to expect a 3,000 word exposition of the weekend past, this time there's really nothing to report. Although, I did finally identify the bird that's been hitting the feeder lately as an Eastern (formerly knowns as the rufous-sided) towhee.

It's good when that's the most exciting thing that happens.

Now then--time for staff meeting.

Well, if you're not going to give me a reason to shamelessly "fritter" worktime on reading a Weekend Wrap-Up PossumPost®, then I'll proffer the Monday 3 Questions (not registered yet):

1. What sound does that bird make?

2. With the Trussville area rained in, did you have a sufficient "excuse" to watch LiveEarth with high priest AlGore and all the high acolytes Saturday night?

3. Any early returns on the take for LiveMirth?

[mmmm, fritters ... think I'm getting hungry]

Sorry for the lack of fritterworthy material, Marc, but I'm deep in the middle of some completely useless busywork that came out of the Monday Staff Meeting.

BUT, never being one to let questions go unanswered, I offer you this:

1: The call of the Eastern towhee sounds something like "Drink your teeeea!!!", with the last syllable being slightly more trilling and accented more than the first two.

2. Uh, no--there were sufficient other diversions that caused me to be unable to watch. I had to clip my toenail, as I recall.

3. The proceeds raised by Live Mirth to date total over one cent.
