Early activity

Blue moon

I was out early enough to view a carry-over of July’s blue moon. Saturday morning…pretty quiet. Not even many runners and exercisers until I’d been out a while.

I only saw four vehicles on about a half-mile of The Busy Street, the last a toenail-tired red jeep* that I thought maybe was headed to the Fire Station. Yup. New shift arriving early….

Among critters, I kept seeing sparrows, here and there, busy. I usually don’t much notice the sparrows, overshadowed by more colorful robins, jaybirds, cardinals, and the like. I did come across a trio of young mockingbirds later, acting, I thought, like teenagers (scrabbling, throwing off energy).
