    Really…..I’ve seen common female house sparrows before, but for some reason I never noticed that faily wide beige stripe on the side of the head.  Funny thing is that I have not seen any sparrows near my house for a long time.

    Nice shot Almb.  This is sure a pretty bird.  Here is my daily visitor.

    Good morning!  It sure is dreary here.  Looks like rain…it is in the forecast.  So another day where the leaves might have to wait.  I just want to get rid of them.  Some maple trees still have leaves on them, so if I wait another day or two, I won’t have to do a third pick-up.

    I’m getting late starting the day.  I watched a late night movie and slept in.  Such is retirement.  You do what you feel like.  In the meantime everything stands still…Not for long.

    This morning after feeding my furbabies, and my wild birds, I took some pictures of the feathered visitors.  Lots of juncos around.  The regulars feel at home so I get a nice variety of birds at my feeders.  Pays to fill them with a variety of food.  A new species visited my deck, but I will have to ask what bird it is on the birding forum.

    Have a nice day.

    I forgot to ask your opinion.  Do you think I have to cut all the branches down, or should I just leave them so that the next batch of leaves start showing….that is if I did not kill the plant.

    I haven’t found my question mark on this new keyboard….sorry.

    Glad I stopped by on this thread again today.  Lovely pictures.

    I do believe this junco has to go on a diet.  He’s been coming around every day and bringing his friends with him.

    Sorry I left you out Charlie.  Hope you feel better and the weather is nicer.  Then again if you are sick, it’s best not to see the sun because you could not go out and enjoy it.  Ok, so that is my way of thinking….!

    One can see that flowering season is almost over….well for some of us.  Nice pictures you shared today.  Here are the last of whatever bloomed in my flower beds.

    Zinnia…not looking all that great, but what a hardy plant.  I’m still wondering where I bought the seeds.

    Grass…..no, not the one you smoke…lol

    One lone Chinese lantern…

    Forgot what these flowers are called, but boy do they ever smell nice…

    I love this delicate looking grass…

    Last of the mums….

    One rose left…

    Good afternoon!  What was supposed to be a rainy day turned out quite nice.  The sun came out and shined down on us all afternoon.

    After a few phone calls I decided to go check out some keyboards and screens for my computer.  The new keyboard that came with my new PC is too flat.  I needed the curved keys so that my fingers don’t hurt.  I picked up a Microsoft one that has the keys I need.  There is nothingwrong with my old screen, but when I gave the old PC with all the attachments to my DD, I kept the screen.  She needs one.  I decided to get a bigger one.  Now my DD can set up the computer for the boys.

    When I came back, had a quick lunch, and out I went to rake and insert the leaves into those large plastic bags.  The city is supposed to come tomorrow to pick them up.  So I am now 10 bags of leaves with 20 still to do.  Then there is the front of the house to clean up.  Grrr…..I hate fall.

    Karen, sounds like you had a great time with your DS.

    Sue, I’ve been in predicaments like that only it was with distant family.  Strange how they don’t know you, but when it’s time for gifts the invitation come.  I agree with you.  It would be hypocritical of you to attend the shower.  On another note, will that make the situation worse if you don’t show up?  Just wondering.

    Have a nice evening!

    Yes, it is very sad.  We are a peaceful country so incidents like that are not common.  However, ISIS did say that we were the first target.  Still not sure who is to blame in this last shooting.  There are crazies out there and everywhere.  We are a small planet.  Too bad we could not all get along.

    So far I haven’t had too many problems with my new 8.1.  The only difficulty is with pictures.  I backed up mine with Google, and for some reason it is giving me trouble.  I guess I have to figure out somehow.  DD formatted everything for me to make it easier so maybe that’s why I can work with 8.1.
