Remembering that song:
"Do your ears hang low?
Do they wobble to and fro?
Can you tie 'em in a knot?
Can you tie 'em in a bow?
Can you throw 'em over your shoulder
Like a continental (regimental) soldier
Do your ears hang low?"
I've found that sometimes when I have a lot of text in a blog post here on Greasy, it all runs together as if the paragraph breaks are not there.
To fix it, after I post this, I will go to User Center and "Edit" my post. All I have to do is open and close it, and the breaks will be fine.
Meanwhile, our weather here in Las Vegas is warming up to spring-like. I heard a mockingbird singing the other day - a little bit early for them. We don't have them in Colorado, so they fascinate me with the various bird species represented including jays, which is how I know it's a mockingbird.
In Colorado we have our own form of a mockingbird - the ouzel, commonly known as the dipper. Dippers are gray all over, about the size of a robin, but longer legs, and they bob up and down on them = dipper. The adults search for food on the river bottom: they dive into the water and walk along the bottom. We can stand on our bridge and watch them doing it.
They build nests under our bridge, and when the hatchlings are in the nest, we can see the parents fly under the bridge with a bug in their mouth and the young ones start squawking. There's two hatches a year.
Yes - this ran together and I opened it in edit and then it was fine.
