Hey crew! A mother whose son is dying is in my thoughts tonight. Lisa The son is also. Probably several weeks, maybe a couple of months. Both of them, and all who love them doing their best to sail ahead into uncharted waters.

Some of you know or know of Lisa Null and some don't. Regardless, I know you all welcome her aboard.

Some one see to the sails, someone else get the kettle on in the galley. I see some of you are already battening down hatches that don't require much going in and out of.   The seas ahead, as we all know, will likely alternate between stormy, tempest tossed and long swells, sometimes soothing and sometimes sickening. Down at the bottom of those swells, seems as if a little ship must surely be swallowed by the ocean, only to find in a little while, the ship is momentarily perfectly balanced on the top of a swell and all creation laid out as a feast for the eyes, the heart, the spirit, the suchness of being.

We are not just one small ship. We are a flotilla, giving heart and courage to one another. That is what it means to be as fully human as each of us can be, eh?

And the ruby-throated hummingbird is one I don't need a photo of. It is one I could easily recognize.

LTS: "...much more acrobatic ..." Obvoiusly, you've never seen them in action. I've had them hover about a foot in front of me (perhaps looking at their reflection in my sunglasses) and just that is impressive. When they start fighting it's amazing. Your eyes can barely follow them. And, watching them beat up on a cat is unreal. A pair will fly in figure eights at right angles and, when the cat is distracted by one, the other will peck the cat on the top of the head. I watched one of my cats hug the ground under such an attack for about two minutes before making a run for it. She licked a bunch of blood off her paw that day. And she avoided that lilac bush for the rest of the summer.

Ditto, maeve.

I still loathe my ex for what she did to me and to Mum (yes, to Mum... behind my back... it was only about ten years after I divorced the vile piece of shit that Mum told me about "things"). Sadly, I cannot forgive the thirteen years, four months, seventeen days, and eleven and a half hours of... Gee. I seem to be ranting a lot. Must be something in the beer. >;-)

Hbird pics, CL? I have some somewhere but to find them? Ruby Throated Humming Bird. I have posted many stories about The King Of Birds. I recall one thread in which I told a story and Spaw said it was my best post ever. I'll never forget that. Spaw. Sniff...

Today, I remember my first, late Wife, Eleni. She died from breast cancer in 1997. We had been through an acrimonious divorce in 1990 & had no contact with each other for several years. An overlooked, minor legal matter lead to an exchange of letters & an eventual, face to face meeting. It was clear from the outset that in the interim, we had both changed & 'grown up'. The legal matter was dealt with in a matter of minutes. We spent the rest of the time catching up & more importantly, apologising to each other for the mistakes we'd made & how we'd hurt each other. I drove home, several hours later, realising this had been one of the most important days of our lives. A week later, Eleni's partner 'phoned me with the news of her diagnosis; something she already knew, but choose not to tell me. We exchanged one more letter, underlining & reinforcing our mutual regrets. Three months later, Eleni died. Ann & I have talked about the details of my first marriage on many occasions, in particular, that one, special meeting. We are both in agreement that it was the best thing that could have happened. It made coping with her death a little easier.

Here's an unfinished song. Please feel free to add, subtract & edit in any way you see fit (or totally reject if you so wish!). It fits to the tune of: "We're Bound for Botany Bay".

Come all ye who voyage on The Rainbow,
Come all ye who make up the Crew.
We're bound over yonder horizon,
Not knowing what work's left to do.

CHORUS:
                Singing tooralie, ooralie addity
                Singing tooralie, ooralie ay.
                Singing tooralie, ooralie addity,
                The Rainbow's in sail & makes way.

Our voyage started here in old London,
We'd water & food in the hold.
With map table & the meridian
And oilskins to keep out the cold.

                                                                CHORUS

The compass was set for Americay,
For the United States we were bound.
The Union Flag & Old Glory
At the masthead could proudly be found.

                                                                CHORUS


We've all been beset by life's tragedies,
We've felt more than our fair share of pain.
We did what we could to relieve it
And we'd do it again & again.

                                                                CHORUS
(August 2015)

Good news is easy on the mind. Glad to hear it.

Mum is much better today. The Tuesday night fall took a toll more mentally than physically. Still... no way she will consider a monitor, hearing aids, vertigo assessment and physio or cataract surgery. "My cousin went through that and the doctor put her through hell!" Sigh. I'd like to say, "Bullshit. You have to do these things for your own good.", but she has 30 years seniority on me so I can't.

Don't commiserate or offer anything at all. Fact is, this woe is miniscule in comparison. I am just venting. Just posting it lightens my load a tad. To have replies adds to my load.

So! Saw a Hummingbird yesterday and another today at the feeder I have next to Mum's apple tree! A small lone male Ruby Throated Hbird. Anyone who knows me knows my love of THE KING OF BIRDS. We used to have oodles all summer long but for three years... SFA! Last year, only a female and two young for three days during southern migration. I believe the pesticide and herbicides are killing them off. I immediately went in my house and called Mum... "Humming Bird Alert." "Okay!" Click. She is nearly blind but she has binoculars beside the kitchen window... I SO hope she saw it. I will have tears if she didn't.

However sending much love to Pete and Tommy and Bobert, p-vine and any others needing our healing thoughts.

Good news have AT LAST sold mother's bungalow, to the third buyer, who really did have the cash to buy unlike the first two. Why oh why are some people so dishonest?

Mother is very weak, hardly eating but still walking , walking!! Her birthday will be on August 31st, she will be 92! Amazing lovely lady.

My daughter is on holiday in France and feeling WELL !!! So the Rainbow mojo is working!

Sweet and somewhat creamy, but don't overdress the slaw - too much dressing makes the bun too soggy, and sweet because if vinegary the dressing is thin and watery and and soaks the bun, turning the already steamed bun into an unpalatable, doughy mess - a textural insult to the mouth and tongue.

Yeah, eagles can be shite. And, yes, they do kill out of "malice" if you consider they are killing a competitor's young (a stretch, perhaps?). I was witness to a number of fights back in the fly infested bog country of Kent County, NB between eagles and bog ravens. I say *bog* ravens because these suckers are BIG. These aren't the ones you see eating roadkill on the highway. These are ravens that rule the prime territory WAY back. I watched an eagle venture to a pond way back one day. The alarm was sounded and ravens came from far and wide and the eagle was a pile of blood and feathers in minutes. They even blocked it from getting away and simply beat the crap out of it. Picked all of the tail feathers off and spread them around for good measure. They didn't even eat it. Then, they all went back to their territories after making a racket with numerous vocalizations. I wish I had owned a camcorder back then.
