Evasive action

July 2nd, 2008 by jomo

While repairing a hail-damaged roof, I saw a pigeon whiz by at breakneck speed through the canopy of tree branches. In hot pursuit was a hawk, which had to give up the chase because it couldn’t maneuver through the foliage as nimbly as its quarry. The predator landed on a branch, rearranged some feathers, then flew back the way he had come, presumably to resume his prey patrol.

My friend Danny told me about reading that people who smoked tobacco were less likely to get Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s. His electrician friend Donny said “Yeah – they all died.”

An website for word usage that I found interesting is The Double-Tongued Dictionary.

June 2008 was the warmest June on record for Austin, with an average temperature of over 89°F. Previously, June 1998 held the record.
