So far we haven’t seen many birds. My sister-in-law has a pond behind here with Mallards. Also, a Blue Jay has been calling, but has refused to show himself.
The ponds around town, Indianapolis, has lots of Canadian Geese hanging out. The one batch/flock had about 20 or so, and they were all faced south. Maybe they were getting aligned so they could get started South for the winter. Yet, up here it is still summer weather. Maybe they aren’t sure when to leave. Also, the remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon is going to come through tomorrow. The rain chance is 100% and flood warnings are being issued starting tomorrow. Welcome to Indiana.
Dan’s 60th High School reunion starts today and will be having gatherings for the next two days. We plan to leave here Sunday afternoon to go to Cincinnati area. Plans, depending on all this rain, we hope to go to the Cincinnati Zoo and then the Creation Museum. Then mosey home.
“But I trust I shall shortly see thee, and we shall speak face to face. Peace be to thee. Our friends salute thee. Greet the friends by name.” (3 John 1:14 KJV)
So far, praise the Lord, I have been handling this trip. My recent back surgery is still causing pain, but doing okay so far.
Unfortunately, my relative has NO INTERNET!!! :( So here I sit at McDonalds. Yeah, for free internets! That is why the posts are intermitten. Trust to post photos from the Zoo later. Hope they won’t have raindrops dripping off of them. :)
Canada geese are wonderful to behold — unless you are thinking about those geese who flew into both engines of the U.S. Airways Flight 1549 (Airbus A320-214) which safely landed on the Hudson River, on the 15th of January in AD2009 (“the most successful ditching in aviation history”), with the survival of all 155 aboard, thanks to God giving wisdom and skill to pilots Chesley (“Sully”) Sullenberger and Jeffrey Skiles. Recently my wife and I watched the movie version of that providential miracle, “Sully: Miracle on the Hudson”), which dramatized Captain Sully’s book “Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters” — and it reminded us of how our own times are always in God’s hands. It was the prophet Daniel who taught King Belshazzar that God holds our life-breath in His hand (Daniel 5:23), a truth that the patriarch Job knew well (Job 12:10).
