My wife likes flowers and plants.

We have a lot of them.

We also have a lot of trees around where we live.

Of all the gin-joints…I, I mean,
Of all the trees where a bird could make a nest,
This dove chose to come onto our deck, and make
a nest in one of my wife’s plants.

My wife made the discovery as she was watering the plants.
She held the sprayer over the hanging plant, pulled the trigger, and
both her and the bird got quite a surprise!

We’ve named the dove “Peace.”  She’ll let us get pretty close, but she seems
to be camera shy.

After her “close-up,” she flew away in a huff. It wasn’t long, though, until she was back sitting on her egg.

Now Introducing her babies, Joy and Love.


My (brief) review of AVATAR January 1, 2010

I saw AVATAR today.
If you see it, you really need to get to the theater. It is, for sure, a big screen experience. The cinematography is truly beautiful.
The performance-capture technology is really amazing.
At the same time, don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s all about special effects. It is an engaging, wonderfully told story.
I only got teary-eyed a couple of times, so I did pretty good.
It’s anti-war message, and “green politics” are in your face (I’m not saying that’s a bad thing), but it
also works as a love story, and an action movie.
My wife also enjoyed it, even though she didn’t really expect much going in.
With commercials and previews, we spent about 3 hours in our seats. It was, however, time well spent.
