My attitude stalled-out like an airplane with engine trouble this morning. The weather was too over-cast for good birding, and besides the planter fasciitis pain in my feet has kicked up, making walking a poor sounding option. Then the noise of construction outside my den window interrupted my pity party. DEACON was moving construction equipment around!
For the past four months I have been submitting bird photos and a short write-up to our Dallas Retirement Village newsletter called the DRV Daily Chronicle. Most recently I have featured residents in a couple of write-ups, which has resulted in our Resident Services Director playfully suggesting that they should give me a new title of "Chronicle Photographer". As I think back on it, this is not a new interest for me, I remember back in the second grade at Queen Anne Grade School in Lebanon, I took my camera to school to take photos of my class mates playing softball because I so admired their skill and athletic ability. With the new construction going of outside my den window, I think I will be a busy boy.
