Foodie has covid and we have to reschedule the helicopter tour for Sat. The guy is the only family member who hasn't gotten Covid. He sure picked a great time...
Saturday is day 4 and his work wants him back on Day 5 which is Sunday. He was stressing out about it because of our plans for Saturday. Now he can relax and concentrate on getting better.
I'm waiting on Navy to answer me - on the date. This is becoming more stressful than the actual event.
UPDATE: He just texted and said he'll be there!
We're scheduled for May 20 at 10am.
I sit on this bench at the Lake when I am watching Laydee swim. Yesterday we went over for an hour or so - and something happened that upset me and my husband.
He had to use the restroom, and when he walked in, a woman came out and said,
"There's a bird stuck in the toilet in stall number 1"
and that was that. Off she went on her merry little way.
and when he opened up the lid of the toilet, there was a little bird inside - struggling, scared, and kept getting stuck way down in the bowl (curve) of the toilet.
Now that bird didn't get into the bathroom, then jump inside the toilet and put the seat down.
A human did this.
My husband took his hand and reached into that dirty toilet - and rescued that little bird. Believe me, that toilet was disgusting. I was so proud of him and that is one major reason why I married him - he is a softy like me when it comes to one of God's creatures. He didn't give it a second thought - he just did it.
I made him clean up with disinfectant wipes - up to his elbows. But that smell which was probably only in our minds, was still there so we cut Laydee's swim time shorter so he could come home and shower.
It made me so very sad - to think that some sick sociopath did this to that poor little bird. How anyone could do such evil and walk away. Then, of course, there are those who saw the bird but placed the lid back down, and never tried to help the little bird.
I couldn't live with myself if I did that.
We checked out the little bird, and he seemed fine. At first, he hopped a little and then flicked his feather and wings - and after about 5 minutes or so of preening, he actually flew into the bush.
Poor little guy.
The more I thought about it, I thought, that is what is happening in our world today. There are some, who see the problem but don't want to get involved for whatever reason. Just let someone else handle it. and go on about their day.
And then there are those who take the reins and do what has to be done.
Some may say, "It's just a bird."
But can these same people be counted on, to step in to help a fellow human being if they needed it?
I do hope I would be able to step in, regardless of my own self - to help if a fellow human being was hurt or attacked.
I know every bird on the mountains,
and all the animals of the field are mine.
