7:45 am on a local four lane road. The car ahead of me is going about 10 mph below the posted speed limit – travelling in the right lane with his left turn signal on. I’m stuck. Many of the passing cars noted the turn signal and provide the driver sufficient room to move intoRead More

I am sitting on the front porch gazing out at the bird feeder that hangs from a sweet gum tree in the yard. It is swaying with the breeze – No visitors for hours – I mean birds. I saunter out to the feeder and – Duh – the feeder is empty. When I fill theRead More
