Maybe it's a juvenile, but it's definitely a tree swallow. I'm pretty thrilled to get photos clear enough for an I.D. At the end of my walk around Oak Point Nature Preserve's lake, this bird patiently posed while I tried to photograph a nearby spider web.
As if the morning was not already momentous, I went to Home Depot to shop for a replacement bathtub/shower faucet kit. My dear Mario had demonstrated the technique I should use for tapping the faucets with my fingernail for sturdiness. So I stood and tapped faucets from $67 on up to $149, from. Delta to Pfister, Moen to Kohler. Thankfully, no "associate" came by to assist me. If I'm going to flick faucets, I want to do it privately! Plus, as I just relearned at Office Max and
Enterprise car rental, any "associate" who does what a customer like me would normally expect wants me to complete an online or phone satisfaction survey.
