went to town the other day to fill our drinking water jugs. while in town we got something to eat. we took our lunch to lake shawnee. we parked in the lot where the eagle nest is. it is on the other side of the water but it is visible. there are always people there that watch for the eagles.
while we were eating two of the eagles flew close over the parking lot. the white head and tail make it plain that they were bald eagles. they flew awhile then one went back to the big nest in the tree across from us. the other landed in a tree near the nest. it was nice to watch the eagles as we ate. on the way home we seen another bald eagle. good mojo.
yesterday we went to renew our subscription to the county rag. it runs out next week. we paid for another years subscription of it. i read it every week for local news. one of the things i see in it is the arrest records of the county. i check to see if any of my relatives have been up to no good.
tomorrow i have to head back to town. i have to renew my drivers license. if i was younger i could do it online. but no, because i am an old guy i had to make an appointment to get it done in person. i have to take my passport or birth certificate, a utility bill, proof of social security number and the card they sent me.
it has been as windy as a politician. i havent been able to burn off last years corn field. i fired up my tiller and tilled a path around it for a fire break. i wanna get it burned off before they come till the garden. if i can, i will ask if they can till that field too. i plan on putting in a ground cover there to add nutrients back into the ground. that will make it better to grow things next year.
i am two games closer to collecting on a payday. before the season started my son was in vegas. i had him bet $30 on KU to win the ncaa championship. i got 18 to 1 odds. if KU wins it all i win $540. righteous bucks. i will be watching the game saturday and cheering for them to win. i still say that they havent played their best yet. when they play up to what they are capable of, they can beat anyone.
i aint getting caught up in buying final four t shirts. i have plenty of KU gear. i bought a KU jersey almost every year when i would go to the season opener. i dont think i missed an opener in 20 years. i have a handful of jerseys left. i would have more but my sons glommed onto them. they wont admit that though. i will wear KU colors while watching the game saturday.
gotta do more spring cleaning.
