mel and kite

I called my sister to wish her a happy birthday. She is five years my junior. She runs a variety of ventures that are more or less promotional strategy for authors. She always has interesting things going on.

After work I walked on the Chisholm Trail in Plano. I got a good view of a Mississippi Kite on a tree. I love those graceful insectivore raptors. But the nearby coterie of American Crows found the kite less to their liking. Eventually they appointed one of their number to go and ask the kite to leave.  Unlike larger raptors, the kite flies more gracefully than does a crow. So it was a pretty down-to-earth commutation and flyaway.

We went to Firewater Grill for dinner. I usually get a steak, but tonight I got flatbread. It was good. I watched a James Belushi film about a German Shepherd police dog. Mel Harris played the love interest. I remember when she was on the show thirtysomething.

I have an active weekend ahead of mixing rest, fun and getting work done.
