Ah! The Smell of Spring. Love Is In The Air! Hm! Propaganda Too!
Yes, Spring is in the air! Blossoms are popping out. There is a rejuvenation of life. The birds are chirping. Flowers are doing their thing.
It seemed to be a good morning for reflecting. I decided that catching the sunrise on the deck with a cup of coffee and a crossword puzzle would be the perfect way to begin a Spring Day.
God has blessed my morning and I will enjoy my crossword puzzle and espresso.
But this is how a person's day can go awry.
This is how a perfect day and peace can be thwarted.
One can only take so much.
Now look at the picture above!
The moon is not perfectly round.
It's shaped oblong.
Oh well. I'll deal with it.
Here I am minding my own business.
I've put sunflower seeds and other seeds for the birds and squirrels to eat.
The morning is still pretty refreshing and peaceful!
One of the squirrels comes over.
Good morning Mr. Squirrel!
How are you today?
Now! You see that? Do you see the disrespect here?
I put out seeds for them that I have to purchase.
I don't have a sunflower ranch anywhere!
But just look at what I face most every day!
I do try to get along with the birds and animals here.
I invite them to come over for as much food as they want.
Is there ever a "thank you"? No!
They will even show you their "back door"!
But- it doesn't stop there.
I have asked for them to display a little affection- I don't mind -but come on now!
I don't need to see this first thing in the morning!
I think they're taunting me!
They know I live alone.
And of course I have to closely examine myself.
Am I angry?
Could this be jealousy?
Of course it is!
But why don't they get a room?!
That's what could make a person angry all the time!
Plus the absence of "you know".
Now all of a sudden it's, "So what's up Micky?"
Just like that!
They carry on and on and on and think nothing of it!
Then - "Gee, I'm hungry!"
Well, that's enough to make a man angry right there!
Then- these folks come along.
They eat my grass.
They nibble my daffodils!
They'll chew the day lillies off the day lillies later on in the Summer!
But- they ignore me!
They eat my food - okay - grass, flowers, and act if I am not there!
Then? They just saunter off!
Not a "so long Micky" or a "by your leave"!
Mean and hidious animals as you can see!
Nope. Peace is still illusive!
My morning must be shattered, yet again, by this oddball!
Can you believe it?
Endless knocking, tapping, and pecking!
Then- he comes right over in my face!
He's eating my sunflower seeds and is flaunting the fact!
He's constantly looking at me!
I feel like Rodney Dangerfield!
There we go!
Give me the old "back door view"!
And the cycle just repeats!
"Go get another bag of sunflower seeds Micky!"
"You're getting low!"
Well- that's what I imagine them to be saying!
Still - I don't see how anyone can say I'm angry.

Don't get me started about these Cardinals!
Let's not use psychology and the Bible against our people.
Let's not use terms like "always angry" or "always 'anything'"!
Confusion comes from the darkside.
Lies and psychology have no place to being used against our people.
Our people need to study the "books" a lot more.
Spring is in the air!
