So how do we celebrate such a momentous day? Short answer: Work . Long, boring, thankless work. I managed to qualify for the Tennessee project and worked both that project and college board on our anniversary day. We were basically too tired to do much else anyway. The plan was to have a small treat exchange at the scoring center and then celebrate on the weekend.
|Let's visit the Amish!|
|Amish people shop here...and SAVE!|
The heat made it a challenge to get them home without melting; however, Cheryl had a plan to put them in an insulated bag. Good thinking Honey!
|Pies in the cooler|
|Small Anniversary cake..pretty!|
|Back for seconds|
|Hiro Likes it!|
|So humid, it rains on the windows!|
|Bulk seed at Springtown|
|Slurred speech...Better not drive!|
|Can't fly or walk|
While watching it for signs of bird activity, I noticed a couple of the bumble bees acting "strange" it was almost as if they were having a difficult time trying to fly and walk. Now I know bumble bees are not the swiftest nor the most graceful flyers in the insect kingdom; but this sight still struck me as odd. Then I wondered if it was possible that the nectar I had "Sweetened the flowers with" had become fermented somehow.
I guess it IS possible. Fruit flies eat fermented fruit all the time and become too drunk to fly. I'm not sure if that is the cause, or the high levels of heat and humidity. But for entertainment value, I thought it would be funny to mention how I celebrated my anniversary by getting the "local honey producers" intoxicated!
If the bees were affected this way, no wonder the hummingbirds stopped coming to the feeder. Good thing I replace the brew with new stuff. Hopefully this will last a bit longer and not become tainted as the last batch.
And lastly, a song I have had in my head for a couple of days now. Not sure why but I think they often play this song at Cheryls races. I guess there is a line in there about running. Anyway. Enjoy the song by the New Radicals. Have a good one!
