First of all, I want to thank Morrie for his endorsement of my musical taste. When he first came to live here, just a few short weeks ago, his musical taste was no more refined than a fondness for”How Much is That Doggie in the Window” and an ability to sing along on the chorus with “The Singing Dogs.” But he seems to be a clever little dog. He learned to sit and stay very quickly. Also how to break into my bedroom through the bars on the grill work at the door. But it never occurred to me that he was absorbing the culture of the house as well. So thanks, Morrie, for your vote of confidence.
Now, on to the matter at hand. When I published my list of songs for my mixed tape yesterday, I didn’t have the links attached. I now have links for all but one, so if you’d like an easy way to listen to a lot of good music, please go back to yesterday’s post HERE.
While you are waiting, or if you aren’t interested in backtracking EVEN FOR THE REWARD OF SOME REALLY GOOD MUSIC, here’s a song I love (with link) that didn’t exactly suit my biography. The dog mentioned at the beginning is Morrie, though!!!

Off-Season: WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Off-Season.”
Early Birds at the Beach
When I am at the beach, the first light of day for me is always the moon, which is still up at 6 when I begin my beach walk. If I’m lucky, I’ll make it the 5 miles to Boca de Iguana and back before the sun is fully up. Much as I love sunlight, my particular pigment demands that I enjoy it from the shade.
As the sun comes up but does not yet peek over the mountains and palm trees, the birds and I comb the beach. I find an already-drying starfish. The Caracara bird finds a fish, the sandpipers and gulls various delicacies barely buried in the sand. Before me, I see only two earlier human birds than I, their evidence left by their footprints.
