    * Birth of a meme *

    So -- last evening, we supped with our daughter, son-in-law, and two grandchildren alfresco in the back yard of their rather rural homestead about 1/2 hour by car from our (also rather rural) house.
    While listening to indigo buntings call (their call is in the form of paired notes, and is pretty unmistakable) I felt the urge to create a meme.

    Today - a much more summery day - I have prosecuted* that urge (instead of doing anything actually useful).

    I should point out that the greyish feather in the second panel is indeed an indigo bunting feather. Indigo buntings, you see -- as well as other so-called "blue" birds -- are not actually blue colored. They just look that way. B)

    https://www.seacoastonline.com/story/news/2021/12/28/nature-news-bluebirds-arent-blue-but-use-structural-coloration/9022497002/

    But that's another story for another meme, I suppose.

    Although my wife was driving, my step daughter scarfed down a bunch of seasoned fries (it was a take-out order) on the way home from our local great burger joint PT's on Fri. night. :D
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    She really thinks we're that dumb.

    If her followers believe that, they deserve each other.
