My best friend I do not know, Jerry Robin, has said: I am lost in Space. Little does he know how right he is! Night before last, I took a little trip to Our Moon for a quick fly by summer vacation. Tonight for the first time, I am revealing my new Ship where I fly like a dream! Next, we will fly around the grounds of the Bird Sanctuary looking at a little bit of this and that. A hodge-podge photostudy for You tonight! Enjoy!

Now, my new ship: TA DA!
This is my new bed in my new apartment (added on to the back of my cabin)
From Here I can fly anywhere
(that Google Earth and Google Space Go)!
The best dream machine of my life and all mine!
I waited 62 years for this soft, wonderful place and I intend to dream my life away as long as I can!
Now for a little tour of my guests:
Red Bellied Woodpecker on Cloud 9
A Bee or not a Bee? That is the question-
He is only seen when I am walking on the road. He hovers over me and follows me. He is not frightened of me taking his photo. He never is seen at any flowers or in the yard. He flies in straight lines, unlike a bee. Does anyone know if he is a Bee?
This is a green bee doing what bees do
Busy as a bee and not noticing me
He is on a double pure white Althea tree
This you know is a bumblebee
I do not think he even sees me!
The crazy, singing and dancing Mockingbird!
Would you care for some in flight refreshments?
Pick a Pear!
Or a pomegranate:
Looks like the day is done!
Here's somebody who is never late for dinner!
...this is brendasue signing off from Rainbow Creek. See You next time! Remember: Make Rest your Reward! Sweet Dreams!
For You, My Friends! Thanks for stopping by!
Maybe I will see You out there flying around sometime! I am off to my Special Ship!
