Also, I'm posting this early because Governor Padilla is going to be here at 11:00 this morning (Sunday morning) behind El Batey at the basketball courts. Now...why, on a Sunday morning when many people will be in the church of their choice, I have no idea and no one is telling me anything, but if you can get there, get there!
Speaking of those in high political office, I got an email that made me really happy and proud today. If you've been reading the blog lately, you saw some photos of the Lusty Mallard crew, including Dan, of the Navajo Nation in New Mexico. He left early because his college was having their commencement and Dr. Jill Biden was giving the address. Woot woot!!! This was covered live and is on video here, if you are interested. Congratulations to all!

|I was down at the end of the yard by the water and saw this thing, and then realized it was the partial carapace of a lobster. The reddish color I get, but the blue? Unknown.|
|That little bit of green grass is filling in slowly but surely. I'm easily pleased. By Nature, that is.|
Now we get to the bees. I lied about the birds. Maybe later. The big genipe tree is in full flower and in the morning, while it is very still, the roar of the bees is amazing, seeming to vibrate the air with almost palpable waves of hummmmmmming.
Since the tree is literally right outside my door I learned a long time ago that they are way too drunk to be interested in me, so I don't have any fears walking under the branches where thousands of honey bees are
Truthfully, I love to see them; knowing that we have a healthy bee population is a good sign of our own ecological health. I know when they get into the walls of my friends' homes, or bartenders fruits they are not feeling so happy, but...a good sign is a good sign and I'll take it.
I tried a long shot to take in how many were filling the air but it was beyond me.
