It was worth a try

I don't know what distracted me, but I turned off the PC and noticed I had not touched my breakfast. Turned it back on, ate while perusing the news. BBC has way too much US politics. But it also covers Europe better than AP.

I guess what distracted me is I wanted to get to the bird preserve by 10 and it was already 10:30.

Got there around 11. Stayed a little more than an hour, but hardly took any photos. Not a lot of birds. Lots of mallards and other common ducks.

I thought I'd waited long enough, but the weather is still too warm by afternoon. Give it a month. It's close, and free, and I can go any time 6 am - 2 pm.

Home. Watched the Titans squeak by the Texans in OT after thrashing them in the first half.

PTI. Mike has forgotten the timer.

The Bachelorette is kind of a sham. She clearly has already chosen the winner, but she gives roses to other guys. She rewards rule breakers no matter how dorky the are. She did send home one guy for being boring, and not knowing why he was there. The producers let her go way too far with the strip dodgeball. She was delighted to see the losers take off their jock straps. Which the producers clearly wanted to have kept on to preserve an iota of dignity. One of the losers is threatening to quit over that, he says the show has no class. It certainly went down a few notches.

Preview looks like a lot of guys will be bailing next week. It's so early in the show that they would have lost a bunch anyway in the next rose ceremony.

Heidi was feeling trapped in my room, I gave her lift to her room. She's asleep on her tree. Spook sat on my lap a couple of times today, but between my tummy and her size she really doesn't fit, so she perches on the arm of the recliner with her front paws on my thigh.


Unlike previous cats, she is oblivious to the TV and the moving objects on the screen.

Streamed for an hour. Four chatters towards the end.
