triumphant jays

I woke this morning in time to give Beatrice a walk before work. The weather is hot and muggy now. Though it was 8 a.m. when we departed, it was already a bit too hot for her. But she handled it like a champ, startling a rabbit or two along the way.

At lunch I walked in Timber Narrows Park in Murphy. I saw three Blue Jays triumphantly back-slap each other after they chased away two American Kestrels. After work, I walked on the Chisholm Trail, and then got Beatrice's dog food at Petsmart.

We dined at the new Japanese place in Allen, where I had very good hibachi shrimp.
Now we are watching episodes of Endeavor. Despite the heat,the bird walk I intended to attend at Lake Ray Roberts State Park was called off--due to flooding.
