More birds and the Friday 5--

I thought before I got into the Willy Nilly Friday 5 that I would post these bird shots...showing Mrs. Cardinal and friends to begin with.
I don't remember if this is two different females or if it is the same one...this shot is very grainy, but I still like it.

Are just a couple more shots of part of the masses that visited yesterday.
It sure has been a busy place out was cowbird day.  I did not take pictures, but I know there was at least 50, if not 75 down there at one time.

Now it is time for Tanya's Willy Nilly Friday 5   This is going to be really random...have not given it any thought again.  Other than a couple things.

1. When we come home and it is night time, I always like peeping in lit windows as we pass.  Will anyone else admit to doing this or am I the only one?  I don't know why the night time makes me think about this more...but when I see the lit windows, I wonder do happy people live there, or are they going through heartaches and sicknesses.  Are they an older couple or are they young and just beginning life.  Just a million questions go through my mind, but the funny thing is, it leaves me feeling sort of sad.

2.  This also leads me to thinking about all the living that goes on around us...just in our neighborhood even.  And we know nothing about it.  When we were younger, we knew our neighbors better, knew what was happening, what their worries were...what was good.  

3.  I had Walk On by U2 in my head forever just a bit back...was there in my mind well over a week.  I had just stopped having it go round in my head and I saw this post by Lavender Dreams.  One of her last lines in the post is Walk on!  I am afraid it will get stuck again if I don't find something to replace it. It belongs to that list of songs I call Orchard Songs...songs I probably listened to a ga-zillion times when working at the orchard.

4.  Maybe I will replace it with
Good to Be Home by The Everybodyfields.  It is my all time favorite song...I know I have said it before but hoping someone new will see this.

 This video was made by my brother with pictures from in and around much of the area you see in this video was my playground when I was a kid.  When I came Indiana, I think one of the very hardest things about it was not having the freedom to roam that I did there.

5.  Roger has a test at the hospital tomorrow.  We have to be there at 8:30...say a prayer for all things to be okay.

It will probably be tomorrow evening before I get to visit...
