It's cold! I got up early (for me) to put the feeder out for the hummingbirds, and the thermometer was showing 33. There should be a snowbird rebate for this weather. It's also been windy, as demonstrated by the wind sock across the way.
Jim had physical therapy yesterday afternoon, so I walked in the park. It was still cold in the afternoon. I saw this bird sitting on the finial of a lamp. It's not a great picture, due to zooming and cropping. He was positively glowing when the sun hit his feathers. Who can identify him?
Even in these cold climates, we have flamingos. It always amazes me what people are willing to carry around in a space constrained vehicle.
Jim is making progress, but walking normally is being hampered by a scar tissue build up at the base of the incision. Surgeons irritate the living snot out of me because they don't seem to consider scar placement when they are cutting. The base of the incision is well below the tendon rupture, so I wonder why he cut down so far. Anyway, there is a lump and the shoe rubs against it, and it's impeding walking. Probability is high that it will resolve eventually, but it hasn't yet.
Currently we are watching a phenomenon that occurs frequently in RV parks. There is a couple in a teeny tiny travel trailer, and they are hooked up to their tow vehicle and ready to leave. However, they've been way laid by a chatty RVer from Texas. We see this all the time, the chatty ones descend on people when they are un-hitching or hitching to leave. When we had the 5th wheel we had a policy of no talking when putting the trailer on the truck, and we enforced it. The consequences of error were too grave to risk it. Anyway, the trailer people were up and out attempting an early departure, but now they are delayed by being polite to strangers.
