Hello! I’m late!

Sorry. I’ve spent my entire evening trying to organize a Zoom meeting with my neighbors. Organizing a Zoom meeting for work was one thing. Organizing a work meeting was like herding cats.

This was like herding cats and dogs that hate each other. And have rabies. And are on fire.

I have nothing left for you but this amusing photograph I took about a year ago. Which is, I kid you not, a selfie. Somewhere under that pile of goofy polish pom-poms is me.

How many chickens do you see in the picture?

How many chickens? I see four, but I think there’s another one under there without feathers. (-:

I was thinking something similar. And then I thought, I have flowers that look like your chickens.

All I can say is there’s a remarkable similarity between those Poles and the Winkie Guards of the Wicked Witch of the West.

Note, similar beaks, and plumage. (Beautiful bird, Norwegian Blue, lovely plumage…)

Yes, four. The little knob at the top right is Spoon.

I’m retired! My employer decided to cut pay and benefits so I decided to leave a little earlier than I planned. So I am now retired! My first day of retirement went pretty well. I was up at the crack of dawn (old habits die hard) but then proceeded to do nothing, take a nap and do more nothing. It was glorious! But that’s it for the doing nothing as we’ve got packing to do. Sunny FL awaits!

Hah! Four! Scanning ability still unimpaired! A small victory to start the day.

Those are some purty chickens- how do they taste?

Congrats Armybrat! Official!

Headed into week 4 of same, and damn it’s been great so far because you can lie in bed if you want, or you can get up and do things if you want.

Because it’s what YOU want!

@Armybrat — Yay! Yay for you!

Please refresh my memory. I seem to recall that your new home in Charlotte County. Is that right?

@Uncle Al- the new home is in Manatee county, just north of Sarasota. We bought a nice little place with a pool and a boat slip. I can’t wait to soak up some sun floating on my giant pink flamingo pool float!

There! Are! Four! Chickens! (Throwback to when Picard was a character with integrity)

@Armybrat — Somehow I’d got the idea you were moving to the south of me…no matter, not important. We’ll be virtually neighbors as I’m in an unincorporated part of Sarasota County near Venice. More importantly, near I-75! (-:

Once you’ve moved and got semi-settled and have time for a breather, we really should find a place/time to, as I think I put it before, eye each other warily over coffee or adult beverages!

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
