It was overcast much of the day, so seeing the sunset was an iffy proposition, but then, at the last minute, bam, there it was. So that was a good thing today.
A good thing indeed. Lovely.
Sometimes, living in Ohio vexed me. But not when we get things like this.
Red sky at night, sailors delight…looks like tomorrow may not be a great day weather wise, hope the old adage is not true…
Fun thing last evening.
I saw movement out of the corner of my eye and looked up and over to yikes.
Something with grey rounded wings was attacking something with black pointy
Rounded wing bird was faster but when it went at the pointy winged bird things
happened to fast for me to see. No feathers fell, and the pointy winged bird just,
on the third attack, vanished into the trees and grey wings turned back.
Circled around and vanished into a different set of trees.

plane to shreds?
‘Red Skies at Night’ by ‘The Fixx,’ apparently.
Probably in the “Best Songs Ever!” ‘Best Ten Thousand!” list.

Ten browser tabs of songs I like did not include songs I [love(?)] such as:
Harry Belafonte and Odetta – There’s A Hole in The Bucket
Laurie Anderson – Slip Away
Sinead O’Connor – My darling child
Warren Zevon – Things To Do in Denver When You’re Dead
Nine Inch Nails – I want to -snipped-.
I still haven’t figured out what “PJ Harvey – When Under Ether” is, lyrics
wise. Could be about abortion, could be about rape, could just be a song.
