Bad Timing


I have a couple more shots of cedar waxwings for you and as usual, click the photo to enlarge. The top one is nice. I usually share a shot of them every year at this time. I think they are beautiful birds.





I had a better photo to show of this point in the window process but for some reason Blogger wants to upload it sideways. This happened to me not long ago too. The photo shows Side 1 with a first coat of solder. From here the piece is turned over. The base coat of solder and the finish coat is applied to Side 2 then the piece is turned over again for the second layer of solder to Side 1.

My son came home mid day for something and helped me flip it for tomorrow and I can get help from Sis in law after tomorrow. To have it cleaned and polished by Monday is my hope.

The musical choices are for two disappointments I suffered today. One, a friend from New York is coming and will leave two days before I return from my April trip. Two, my daughter called and said her Dad is paying her way home for Easter. Then too I will be gone so will miss her. I am completely bummed. Goin' to Chicago Blues by Ernestine Anderson has never been played here before. Today's the day. My New York friend says that it is happening for a reason, my not being here so the other song for today is If It Be Your Will, not by Leonard but by The Lost Dogs. Ah, heck, here's Leonard's version too.

Cedar Waxsings are supposed to be common in these parts, too at certain times of the year but I've never seen on in my life. I hope to one day because I also think they're beautiful.

Ralph, They will be here in droves when the apple trees are blossoming. I have some photos. Here's a link to ome from the SC blog two years ago:

Oh, that's right, I've heard about teh fruit trees. I guess we'll have to plant some when we move!

Cuidado! I love those birds!! We don't get Cedar Waxwings where I live, and they are just adorable. Great photos. The window is coming along SO nicely! Gorgeous.

Oops! I take that back. I just looked up Cedar Waxwings. I probably don't see them because we don't have any fruit trees around here, but one of the sites I looked at showed a Cedar Waxwing in Ithaca, NY -- so they are around here sometimes! I will be on the look out.

Yes, that's what they eat, fruit blossoms, fruit, and even , as you can see, fruit left over from last year. Fruit trees are wonderful and I would highly recommend growing them.

Nan, there is another waxwing too - a Bohemian Waxwing. They look very similar. All travel in flocks and are beautiful.

Thanks for the window comment. I mill be finished today if someone can help me flip it again.
