I'm sure many of you have heard about the mine tragedy that happened in WV yesterday. This is the community where the Evil Twin's family is from and he even went to high school there for a semester. Most of his family still live there and some are miners. I'm not going to elaborate on it, because Buzzardbilly covered it much better than I ever could.
I mentioned yesterday that on Sunday, the Evil Twin removed his grill cover to find a bird nest perched on the side ledge. It has 4 eggs in it.
We use a charcoal grill and it gets very hot, very fast. Here is a side view of this most elaborate nest:
You can see how large it is and how close it is to the side of the grill. We didn't want to move it, but there was no other option. As I said, we carefully transplanted it to a high branch in an apple tree.
I saw a robin sitting outside the opening yesterday for quite some time, so I'm hoping it's the mama or daddy and they've found their transplanted clutch.
And, in completely unrelated news: I gave up bread for Lent and some of you guessed how much weight I might lose. Well, on Ash Wednesday (the beginning of Lent), I weighed 128.5. On Easter (the end), I weighed 128.5. Hahahaha! I guess I made up for the lack of bread by subbing pasta, rice, other carbs.
Now that my left knee and both ankles feel okay, I guess I should whip out that Jillian Michaels DVD again. Pool season is coming up, ya know?
I blew off the Mart of Wal yesterday. I was just exhausted. So, I'll go today. I'm almost finished with my weekly list. :-) Have a great day - and if you have a second, send out a good thought or prayer for our miners and their families. They'll need all they can get.
