Jackson lake State Park, in Colorado, I camped under this tree and had about 1,000 gypsy moths invade my van!

Last Friday my Mom's best Friend passed away (age 96) so I attended her funeral...that was sad. The line keeps moving of the people I know...it's almost like I can hear some ghastly voice saying, "NEXT".
This really upsets me, she has 2 sons..both married. She was living with one son and his wife had the duty of caregiver...but as soon as Nettie moved out of her home and moved in with the youngest son, the Older son with his wife moved into Nettie's vacant house...SO my question is WHY couldn't he have made that move when his mother was there and wanted to Stay in her own home? Shame on anyone who does that!! I really didn't want to hug him at the funeral I wanted to smack him!! But I didn't because I know he was hurting.

I have not been motivated to go birding or traveling...I think all the "stuff" Nationally and personally just has me in a vice, I am however enjoying the birds that I see around me, I just have no motivation to go looking beyond my little acres... hope that changes soon as even better weather is expected next week.
I guess you could say Im in a Funk, remember that word. Or maybe it's one of those force fields that has a hold over me...I dunno but it stinks. It's like I don't want to go out and see the donkeys without a mask on that makes me angry, and I don't want to see the jackasses with the Trump flags off the back of their pick ups, and 6 ft away is not far enough. I'd have to drive 3,000 miles to get away from the RED state and the Surrounding Red States! I think election depression is setting in on me.

When I was a kid I used to stomp tin cans on my feet and pretend I was a wild horse...and I was instantly transported to anyplace in the whole world...I want to be a wild horse again...
Trying to forget the stuff I saw on 9-11 that's why I rarely mention it when the date rolls around -----19 yrs ago ...boy I wish I could erase those horrible memories (RIP💓) but then be careful what you wish for...forgetting is going around.
So that's my thoughts this week...just little things stung together. Share some of yours with me...
