As nearly as I can tell there is no webcam in Merced, though there is a proposal in for four at UC Merced.

WTF, even Chula Vista has a webcam. Get on it mouse, I'd suggest putting one in the Partisan. Looks like a right proper place.

What web, we got the bar. The last of the good old fashioned steam trains kind of place, takes it a while to get rolling, but once it gets a head up of steam, it rocks.

I'm heading there soon tonight, like now.

Kinda Kinky Koalas Monday.

It's too foggy/cloudy to get any shots of the sunrise today. I went for a bird walk instead.

The American West from Fall 1964 was one of eight for eight bucks and has a great spread of the "Standing Up country" of Utah and AZ, Cathedral Valley on the cover.

Thirteen Moons is by Asheville native Charles Frazier. It's in good shape, but I mean to read it and send it on.

I am happy to be able to read Roy's semi-autobiography. Slyke nothing I've ever read.

Here is a photo of a male eastern bluebird that I took in my garden in October 2011. Now, why they are called the "bluebird of happiness" when they have a tendency to look a bit grumpy and uppity, I am not sure. ha ha ha ha ha

I have that Eastern Bluebird print as my computer desktop at present. I found the print in a collectables shop here the other day, thinking it would work with a photo of Our Lady of Medjugorje. It does, quite nicely.

Thirteen Moons--the story of Will, an orphan indentured to run a trading post in the Cherokee tribal lands, becomes the adopted son of Cherokee Bear and falls in love with Claire, a white gal who is the charge of the local bull of the woods, Featherstone.

It's the story of his love for the place, too. I'm thinking Wendell Berry, maybe. We shall see. I'd be happy to forward it, should you like to read it. Or you'd be able to get it in the local library, surely.

I read Cold Mountain in 1995 or 1996 and wondered if he'd write another as good. It's too soon to say, but it's not a prize-winner. How much is the $$ for the National Book Award, anyway? CF's probably been living "the good life with horses" since the movie deal for Cold Mountain. This one is a 2006 copyright.

"It's good, though."--I read one chapter sitting in the coffee shop today. I thought Will would die after he tells his story as an old boy. Instead, he takes a Parker loaded with birdshot and plinks at the railroad train he owns and hates. He's lived long enough to see autos, trains, and phones.

"The whistle blows two short friendly notes, and the locomotive turns the curve and drags its train behind. In the end, just a fading rumble coming from down the river and black smoke settling over everything before the mountains form up again, shorn and damaged and eternal."

Feeling Lucky.
The Thirteenth Valley, by R. del Vecchio was the first book I read about Vietnam. Four stars.
There are thirteen books in Euclid's Elements. All these books sucked in high school.
Nevada Barr's novel 13 1/2 is apparently her 17th novel. I've yet to read a single Nevada Barr offering.
Thirteen Re3sons Why is Jay Asher's new novel. "It changed my life."--rave review, never read it
Grasping for the Wind is the 13th novel in the Wheel of Time series. Have yet to open one of them.
Dead Ever After is the 13th Sookie Stackhouse novel by Charlaine Harris. Sookie is a telepathic waitress working in Merlotte's Bar and Grill in Bon Temps, Louisiana.

Anna Paquin's looking pretty. Maybe I'll rent this. Or break down and read one. Charlaine's very humorous in a Terry Pratchett way, IMO. STopped reading him long ago. (7)

hey there say, mouse.. nice birds!

say, i had to leave a whole series of lovely bird prints back in south texas, they got thrown out, i a sure, :(

well, they seemed similar to your blue bird... could you see if you can
find out WHO the painter is? or if there is a a name to go with the one you have?

i acually saw a book once, in a small library around here... i am trying to get back there to see if they still have it, so i can try to find it online...

if you come up with a name, let me know, please...
thanks! :)

in spring, i will try out that library, so if you can't solve the mystery, don't worry...

i do have one print, and i got it from a thrist store, i think?
and--it had no artist, or company name, :(


happy good eve to you, gypsy and all the gang here, :)
