A Robin in my 'Hood

As I was picking up my bass this morning I looked out the window and saw a robin sunning himself against the back wall of the Cinderblock Chalet. He's all puffed out. I've never seen such a plump robin before!


"Whatchu lookin' at?"
And then I was almost all the way back home from my rehearsal when I suddenly saw a man in a oilcloth duster riding a black steed down New Hampshire Avenue. The day is still young - who knows what I'll see next? Have a great weekend!

If I had a horse, New Hampshire Ave is probably not where I'd ride it. I need to get out today. All I've seen today is a bunch of laundry and a vacuum.

I've never seen a civilian on a horse in DC; just park police. Crazy!

I only saw a statue I'd never noticed before, a man standing atop a flying lion outside the Embassy of Kazakhstan. I'm not sure how I've missed it all of this time. It's unique. Wish I'd remembered my camera...

Mike - I definitely know how that feels!

Kristin - that was out on the far reaches of NH Ave, but still not exactly horse appropriate. I'm going to have to go looking for that statue - that sound pretty cool!

Wow is that bird using PEDs?

Barbara said...

That is one fat bird, especially considering the scarcity of food over the past few weeks.

Cyndy said...

Dmbosstone - PEDs? um sure, except I don't know what PEDs are.

Barbara - Later in the afternoon there were about twenty of them in my "other" backyard gorging themselves on holly berries.
