Poor little thing he’s lonely

I found this video on YouTube, if you listen to it you will be able to hear sounds similar to what I am hearing.

There’s a Northern Mocking Bird in a tree in my front yard. He has been singing like every bird around here plus some that I have not seen in my yard. A little while ago he was singing like a quail, he whistles like me, meows like a cat and sounds like a car horn. I can’t help but giggle when he makes sounds like something other than birds.

Poor bird the odds are he will sit in that tree and continue singing until 4:00 a.m. unless he finds a lady mocking bird. He started singing about ten minutes after midnight.

I feel sorry for him and if I could I would find a mate and somehow get her to him. Listening to him does not bother me, I really enjoy the sounds he makes, but I don’t like that he is lonely.

Summer has come in with a bang

Whew, it is hot out there. I walked out the door and instantly broke out in a sweat. Summer has come to my area for sure as it has many others. I don’t like seeing triple digit temps already and I am hoping this heat is not the beginning of a very hot summer ahead.

One of my favorite summer treats is a cold slice of a nice ripe watermelon. I sure would like to have one right now. A town not far from where I spent most of my growing up years had the best watermelons I ever ate.

Watermelons are in a lot of memories I have of my childhood days. Sitting under a large shade tree with family, eating watermelon or homemade ice cream…yum, yum. I sure did enjoy those days.

What are your favorite treats on a hot summer day?

Stay safe and cool everyone.
