I was reminded of a kids' TV program from eons ago...Romper Room...in which Miss Nancy had characters like Good Do-Bee and Watch-Bird ("This is a Watch-Bird watching you!"), when I glanced out the window past the computer and saw this tom turkey watching me yesterday afternoon. His brethren were doing normal turkey things behind him in the driveway, but this Big Bird (yes, that's from the Muppets) settled down and watched me for a long time. I guess turn-about is fair play in Fair Play...I sure spend enough time watching them.
I was at the polls when the doors opened yesterday and would have been the first to vote if I hadn't held the door for two ladies even older than myself. The "officials" had to put down their coffee and donuts, so there was time to chat before the ballots were handed out. I just love voting "country style." I am trying to keep this apolitical, and will just say this was a very interesting election, not only in California but in the nation.
I do try to stay abreast of what is happening out in the big world, but I much prefer life here in my little world, where we keep watch for each other (with a bird's eye view).
