I had a tiny visitor today!
This poor little fellow showed up in my library today. He is not the first tiny terror to arrive. Generally speaking bees are most apt to visit when the weather is sweet and I leave the back door to the playground open. They do cause general havoc... since they like to fly in when the Kindergarteners are present.
Today's visitor arrived when the middle school was working on computers in my lab. Immediately the room was excited. This guy was so befuddled that it was sad. For a time he perched on one of the sprinkler pipe and just trilled his alarm. Then the kids, who meant well, tried to shoo him out the door again.
One kid says "Be careful they have stingers!"
The entire room turned their heads to look at him in disbelief.
Sadly, he was serious. I wondered if sometime in his past when he was younger if he did not pester the humming birds until some adult with good intent on behalf of some harassed bird had said "It'll sting you..." in an attempt to get him to stop pestering one.
Shortly after, the sub who had brought the kids to my lab to work, stood on a chair... these windows are higher than they look... and gently took it into her hands and released it outside once more. It left her hands so fast you could not see it vanish.
It was simply gone.
Other than that... not much happened today of note except that I received my 3001st email from Randy today. It read:
"Sweet dreams my baby."
I figure at this rate we will make it to 4000 by the time I move down there. Ha!
Life is sweet!
Happy Hump Day!
