Today was glorious. It was a perfect summer day, complete with soft breezes, sunny skies, and temps that were – dare I say – pleasant.

The little wrens are doing fine. My husband saw them today over by the garden and told me not to worry. It will be interesting to see if they nest in the same place next year and I’m glad I grabbed the photo from yesterday when I did.

Here’s something that happened last week: One of my YouTube videos went a little viral.
Last year, I made a video using some of my pictures and set it to music by Neko Case. When it got up to 7,000 views, I was pretty astounded but attributed it to the fact that I had titled it after the artist and included the name of the song.
When we got home from Maine, I noticed all these YouTube comments from that particular video in my inbox. They were literally pouring in by the hour. The hits on the video kept climbing and when I last checked, it was over 100,000. What happened is this: A TV show called True Blood (which I’ve never seen) used the same Neko Case song at the end of their season finale. Apparently, the scene involved some pretty steamy sex in a forest between two of the main characters. A lot of people who watched it did the same thing that I do when I hear a song I love. I go to YouTube and look it up. And apparently, my video turned into some kind of chat forum for the season finale of True Blood.
From what I’ve read, that is. I’m really not into it.
As an aside, I hadn’t viewed this video in awhile and it wasn’t until I told my son Matt who wrote back telling me that if you search’ neko case I wish’ on YouTube, mine is the second video to come up. “And oh,” he added, “do you think I could have a copy of the photo of us when we were little – you know, the one at the end?”
What the hell? There’s a photo of us in there? I had forgotten about this. In any case, here’s the video in case you haven’t seen it. It’s really not all that and a bag of chips, but the music is cool.
And speaking of cool, I like these cloud photos which were taken by my husband last August. I found them in the photo files.
Normally, I’d be in the pool right now, having a cocktail (it’s the weekend, man) and getting some sun but I’m packing to go away for a week.
And when I say the pool, I mean the kiddie pool. I don’t have a real pool.
I’ll try to post a couple of times while I’m gone.
I have one more week of vacation time before the school year starts and this is the last possible week I could take it.
We’ll be visiting friends.
And I’m sure it will be hot.
But I’m not even going to think about that.

Until next time, my friends . . .
