Today it was misting most of the time during my walk. I don't
mind about that. What I do mind is the wind blowing it in my
face! Annoying for anyone, right? But when you wear eyeglasses,
it's especially vexatious!
But the 100% humidity made this bug very happy!
Roly Polies are actually crustaceans. And they have gills to
breathe, so they can only come out when the humidity is high.
I love them! They are so cute!
The State of the Blog
Okay! I have been working pretty consistently on the blog
for a couple months now.
I started archiving 2022 posts in mid-February. I also started
writing blog posts again, tho rather half-heartedly! In mid-March,
I got better about working on daily entries.
At the end of March, I finished archiving
the first half of 2022. (and
I had quit blogging for most of the second half of 2022. Sad.)
And at the beginning of this month, I started archiving 2020
blog posts. There was a surprise... I had already archived the
first half of the year! (what is it with me and half years???!)
And I was very grateful that those files didn't get lost in the
Death of the Three Computers fiasco in January! phew!
So I'm going thru the last half of 2020... wow, I did things
differently back then! ha. I didn't blog every day, tho it
was usually several times a week, including a Wednesday Rant
about covid conditions. and I'd only
have one or two photos on a post.
(good lord, how did I restrain myself?!) ha!
And then I found a few random photos that I never added to
any blog posts. That's weird, I wonder what happened.
I decided to add them in, when I was done with that archive.
And that's where I am, right now... except, if I'm going to
take the time to fix that, I may as well go back and fix some
Yeah. If you spend any time at all around here, you'll notice
the three Xs. It's a marker to myself that I didn't finish
what I was doing. XXX is easy to search for.
Who knows what I will discover when I look at those XXXs!!
I mean, the post that's titled New Dragonfly, with no pic and
no text seems pretty straight forward, yeah? I just didn't
have time to research the new dragonfly, so I didn't know what
to name that jpg file. Should be an easy fix!
I'm sure there are plenty of XXXs that have no explanation tho.
It'll be interesting! :)
Oh. And I saw the new Western Grey Squirrel, out my window
again this morning. (I am still devastated about Wes Crusher,
but it's getting easier to see other Western Grey Squirrels.)
Just the one Grey Squirrel, this time.
Pretty sure he's a male... and he's
aggressive about the little Eastern Fox
That should be Air Quotes, there, with the aggressive part.
Because, even tho the Grey Squirrels are noticeably bigger than
the Eastern Fox Squirrels, it's usually the Fox Squirrels who
chase the Grey Squirrels away! I don't know why!
But this Western Grey is def chasing the Eastern Fox Squirrels!
That kind of puts him in my good graces, tough guy!
If he sticks around, maybe I'll call him Worf. :) In keeping
with the ST:TNG theme.
