Very few birds were around this afternoon, now that I think of it. They must have picked my yard clean of everything they find edible before I woke up. I did wake up a bit late today, and thought it was even later. Dim days can cause that. Clouds kept the light from my window, and when I finally woke up I momentarily thought it was almost sunset already, though it was only two o'clock in the afternoon. Winter, dead ahead!
And how did I miss the news of the imminent injustice to Bill Stickers?
