Speaking of April, she finally had her baby Saturday morning. Friday night I was up late watching her pace around her enclosure and I sort of knew she was close but I just had to go to sleep. Saturday morning I was lucky enough to decide to check her out before I started cleaning up for Easter brunch on Sunday, here with my family. Surprise, there were two little hooves poking out! Well, that was that. I wasn’t doing anything until that calf was born and all was o.k. thankfully mom and baby were fine and once it was standing and walking I started cleaning.
Yes, I’m a sucker for watching babies being born in nature. I’ve been watching the cameras on the eagles and falcons here in the burgh for years now.
I also checked on the size and number of the tax protests wanting Trump to release his taxes as he promised. Fat chance of that but it’s worth a try. Hopefully they aren’t considered big enough to make him drop a bomb on some country as a diversion. If you think the other military actions were anything other than a diversion from the Russian/collusion questions I have swamp land in Jersey to sell you. Me? My taxes have been in and frankly, being on SS, it’s a pitifully small bit of paperwork and there’s no refund so maybe if I really had swampland to sell it could have been interesting.
I put out my humming bird feeder early. Still no sign of them but Saturday it was 80 degrees in the burgh and the long range forecast it for warm weather so I wanted there to be food waiting.
Mid –April already and the time is flying by fast but not fast enough to the new season of GAME OF THRONES. They usually start right about now but this year, PHOOEY- the season starts in July!
Anyway, hope you all have had a wonderful weekend.
