This must be Hummingbird Week, similar to Shark Week but different mostly. Has a hummingbird ever seen a shark? Hard to imagine how that would occur. Barely possible. Might make a good poem or kid’s book!
Kevan from England and I have been writing in Comments about God’s creatures big and small. Amazing all the different approaches to living. And we are all in this big playpen together. What a life!
I suppose I am not going to get out of H W without running out my old faithful hummingbird story. I don’t think that I have had it on the blog in a long time. But I think that it made the cut on Phil’s Camino, So Far So Good.
A friend of mine, an engineer, was heading up a residential remodel job in the city. Summertime and our small crew was commuting and working hard. We had the use of a large garage on the property for our temporary shop in which we had moved a bunch of wood working machines to play with. So I was running back and forth from the garage to the house trying to make some visible progress to keep everyone happy. In the dusty garage was a large picture window. On one of my many trips by it I noticed on the dusty window sill a beautifully colored hummingbird lying there. My first thought was that it must be dead, it
was so still. Must have flown into the glass or exhausted itself trying to get out. Then I had the thought, yea but it is so clean and fresh looking perhaps it’s not dead, could that be? I had this idea to pour a little quantity of Coca-Cola in a bottle cap and I carefully slid the shallow metal cap under the bill of the lifeless bird and walked out back to the house. Minutes later I came back and the little lifeless bird was gone, solid gone! Supercharged on Coke and out of there! Too amazing! My good deed for the year was accomplished.
Oop, time to walk, see ya.
supercharged loves, Felipé.
