Before I get started with whatever I'm going to be blabbering about today (I've got lots to blabber about, but I'm also in the middle of cooking dinner), how's abouts a really cool rainbow lorikeet pic?
Yeah, I agree with you: it's a pretty darned cool shot.
I have a challenge for KC way up north. Well, actually two.
First, try to find some James Boag's Premium Lager in Squarebanks and review it.
Next, is this galah male or female and how do you know:
I just thought I'd throw in the random flower picture, this is from the hibiscus TREE in the front garden (it flowers almost year round):
The flower is about 3 inches across, BTW.
Oh, quick temp update for all of you sourdoughs... today was 87 F in the shade and since there were high clouds I doubt it even made triple digits. Yesterday was the same in the shade, but 108 F in the sun (it was also hazy so it didn't get too warm). Our neighbors had their a/c on yesterday! Can you believe it? Wusses.
The huge black panther that hangs around the homestead spent the entire afternoon yesterday flopped on the hot bricks on the pool patio. I'm now treating him for sunburn... and then I'll treat myself for lacerations, broken bones, and fang 'n' claw marks on my arms and legs.
