on my walk today i spotted some dandelions........I've always thought of them as a spring thing.......it's October and fall........and was so distracted by them being there, i almost missed this beautiful blue heron........feeding in the pond i passed.........only the second one I've seen all year......i have a sling bag i carry.......i hate shopping bags....and my sling bag is ample for carrying the bits and pieces i pick up on my shopping trips.....but i always have a compact pair of Bushnell's in the bag........had several enjoyable minutes bird watching..........and before i get any rude comments......i only watch 'birds' with them.......anyways it's my story and I'm sticking to it............
[ bye the bye the correct name for dandelions is of the family Taraxacum]

i'm in mourning today.........an online game i've played in 'beta' and on and off for the last 13+ years has 'died'...........or rather the server basically had the server equivalent of a myocardial infarction, it's dead..........and there are not enough players left to support 'CPR'............
the bad news is the game is gone.........the worst news is i'll have more time to post here.........[hehe]
