SunnyKate: Thanks for the cuckoo link, but oh dear - stealing an egg. I didn't realize they did that. I thought they just laid eggs in other birds' nests and then departed....
Heather: That's frustrating about nephew. I like to know chapter and verse too. When my cousin died of cancer years back, I kept asking what kind and where, etc., but never did get definitive answers.
I've been watching the SpaceX Dragon dock and will tune in for the hatch opening in a bit and the on-board 'welcoming' ceremony. Wonder if they'll serve bubbly..
Meanwhile, the US continues on its way to hell in a hand basket.... I may go for a walk by the ocean this afternoon to remind myself that when all's said and done, Nature will have her way and hopefully the planet will be alive and well after our kind have long gone. And on that cheery note......! :-)
Heck, LINDY, she was very obedient!! My children, well, three of them, decided that I shouldn't be going out. I told them that it was lovely that they cared so much but I wasn't ready to activate the Power of Attorney yet as I'm only 74 :-) They are all OK with it, I have no heath issues so that made it easier for them once I reminded them that I was the Boss.
