bald eagle

Yesterday I took pictures of a crow at daybreak. My young friend and I walked by Bethany Lakes Park's ponds, where he pointed out some pied-billed grebes. We dined at Razzoo's,a Cajun restaurant where I had a seafood gumbo with red beans and rice.
We went to the Half-Priced Books flagship store, by a Barnes & Noble bookstore, and
to CD Source. We found that CD Source, a new and used CD vendor,was having its closing sale. I was intrigued to see offerings on sale from His Boy Elroy and Emily Richards, both ccMixter artists. I took a picture of the CD and little CD-store-tab for "Emily Richards", and posted it on her facebook page.

When my friend and I drove on the first Lake Lavon bridge off Lucas Road, I saw a huge raptor flying overhead. Soon I saw the white tail and white head. It was a bald eagle.
Though I knew that Lake Lavon probably had over-wintering eagles,this was my first sighting of one on this lake, and my first eagle sighting this year.I was very pleased.

I watched sports on television and went to bed early. My wife had fallen asleep
with a home and garden channel show playing. Rather than turn off the show, I simply fell asleep with it on. I had dreams of improvement and home upgrade all night.

This morning I resumed work on my nanowrimo novel,bringing my word count up to 5205.
The last time I wrote a novel, in 2002, one had to save every few minutes because word processing platforms, while great, still crashed from time to time. Today's systems, like the Libre Office I am using, no longer crash so easily. But I save often out of habit.
