Let me give you a hint: The trays aren’t supposed to look like that.

I haven’t published a post in a while and I apologize. But there’s been a lot of drama at work and it’s been sapping my energy like a sump pump. There’s been drama, pathos, and tension and it hasn’t been easy, kids. Working for an airline has it’s moments of utter hell and we’re in the middle of it right now. So please accept my apology for not getting my stressed rear end over here to come up with something.


On the up side, I did manage to kill an entire day standing in the hot sun and walking for what seemed like miles to see and hear President Obama speak. Politics aside, I had never seen a sitting President speak before, so that was really kind of neat. Nan wanted to go, so I thought, “Why not?”

He’s right there, smack in the middle of the photo.

It wasn’t easy, but we did it. Would I do it again? Probably not. I’m glad I did it once, but damn, it was a tough row to hoe. Here is what we did a lot of. Yup, Standing in a very, very long line. Seven hours with no access to a bathroom. Or food.

So between the airline garbage, and the “Obama Drama,” the election, the flying and other assorted crap that went on, I just couldn’t haul it together to post very regularly, Happens to the best of us at times, I guess.  I’ll try and be better about it from now on.

On the up side, I’m doing a “Chop Clinic” at the Bird Lovers Club in Pembroke Pines this coming Sunday, the 16th of November. I believe it begins at 1 p.m. I’ll bring the vegetables, they are providing the electricity. It’s going to be an interactive, educational and I think you’ll enjoy it. Rumor has it there will be food for humans as well.  So, please join us!

I just found out that In Your Flock Magazine Publisher Sandy Lender is going to be there! If you haven’t subscribed to this new magazine, I highly suggest it. She will have information and promotional materials available about the magazine available and you can ask her any questions you might have about this new and exciting publication.  I just got my “Big Jambox” out to make sure I can run it at the Chop Clinic. It’s always more fun to have music while you’re Chopping, so I had to make sure that was working the way it’s supposed to. It does. Let her rip! Here’s my Big Jambox at work. Janet Holt Hilton shot this when we were on our way to the Chopalooza Event in Port Charlotte at Bonnie’s Birds:

I just love the thing! Wireless and with great sound, I’m so happy I got it.

Anyway, I hope to see you all at the Bird Lovers Club Meeting. It should be a lot of fun!
