About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      This was a tiny finch that Morrie brought in in his mouth..untouched. It had fallen out of its nest during a wind and rainstorm during the night. We made a little nest, put it in a cage with the door open and the parents came to feed it. We didn’t know where it had fallen from.. I think probably it was washed out of the tejas when the water came down from the peak of the roof. finally I put a nest on top of the water heater for the hot tub. I was no longer using it and it had a roof and sides on it but the opening was small enough so only the parents could access it and not the cats or the dogs, but it fell out of the nest and broke its wing and eventually died..It is buried in a planter in my yard.

      Check my comments, Janet. The robins were in Forgottenman’s yard in Missouri and they did survive. I have a photo of the eggs as well.. so unbelievably blue. He took the robin photos. I took the rest.

      Of course..You know the story of the man who decided to import all of the birds mentioned by Shakespeare into the U.S.? That’s how the chimneyswift got here as well.

    Hi Judy
    Your pingback went into my spam. I’m glad I went in there which I do every Friday morning. So sorry I didn’t approve and comment sooner. These are great photos. The top image looks like a House Sparrow. I’m so glad you joined us this week, but so sorry I didn’t know you had until now. Lisa

        Yes, no rhyme or reason. I only look at it on Fridays. Otherwise my life would be consumed with it. LOL! I am glad it catches all that it does because there are some really bad people out there. ๐Ÿ™‚

          Some really long spams will show up thirty times on the same day or close together, at least. Crazy.
          But there is usually at least one message I want to see that I have to take out of Spam, so I always have to check.. but not often. More often Forgottenman, who is on my blog as an administrator, since he set it up for me initially, will catch the good ones before I do and set them right.

            Yeah, I usually have 30-50 spam in there each week and that is what they are. I rarely have a legit one go in there. That’s why I was surprised to see yours in there. I just realized I didn’t add your photo to the gallery. Ugh! Let me fix that right now. ๐Ÿ™‚

              Well now! “Pills and Porn”…You might have a new name for your blog. LOL! I get a lot of porn from one of my Song Lyric Sunday posts. Last year, I met BoysIIMen before the pandemic hit and posted “I’ll Make Love to You” for the song. It gets a lot of spam hits. LOL!
