The Blahs -- MidWeek Blues -- The birds and the grub

But first an updated picture of our new grandbaby, KP.

Today she is four weeks old, this was taken yesterday by Karen.

Ain't she cute!

The birds. Why would this picture make me blue? Or make anybody blue? Well, may be it wouldn't. This just isn't my idea of escaping the harsh Midwestern winters.

The birds? We call them snow birds. They come down here in the warm when it is snowy and cold up north. They bring their own homes (make their own nests). They blend in when there isn't anything doing with 'their kind.'

The grub? Birds must eat. One reason they like it here is because of the proximity to the necessities, such as groceries, Jack-in-the-Box (plus a half dozen other fast food, NO BURGER KING) and gasoline. This shopping center is six miles east on the Interstate Highway, IH-45.

And I say 'here' because the RV trailer park is less than a mile on east from our home. It generally fills in the winter.

The Blahs? Definition # 2 : plural [perhaps influenced in meaning by blasé] : a feeling of boredom, lethargy, or general dissatisfaction

If you want to post a MidWeek Blues picture, go get directions from Rebecca by clicking on the logo here. She has a Mr. Linky and good directions . Just do what I did.
Or do less. All she requires is a BLUE PICTURE, you don't have to write.

Someday, that little grandbaby will love your neighborhood for the same reason the birds do.
Some people here fly south in the winter Jim. I have to say that after weeks of grey damp and cold weather I sometimes think I might join them. KP Looks to be doing fine. Bob.

Gday Jim. KP, OHHhh awww she is beautiful would love to give her a big kiss on her chubby cheeks...
