scissors fly

I drove to downtown Garland to the Corner Pocket Sandwich Shoppe. There I got my usual, turkey and lettuce in a slice of pita bread, with baked potato chips. After I sat down, I thought about how I should have gotten the sandwich to go, and sit in the little town square on a park bench. As I drove back to my office on Glenbrook, through the lovely residential neighborhood Pecan Grove, I saw a small chihuahua walk by. He looked pretty young. He had no collar on, or I would have stopped and dialed his owner. I hope he made it home all right. I worry about dogs and cats that I pass when I drive.

During the drive home, on Spring Creek in Plano, I saw two male scissortail flycatchers doing mock combat. I love the aerial displays these birds can provide. I saw lots of showy evening primrose, which is blooming particularly well this month.

For dinner we had chicken tacos. Then we laughed as we watched "modern family". Then we took Bea for a walk in the dark.

I like the TV show "Dragnet" on I love the story I heard about how Jack Webb had to tell the guests to stop acting and to play the roles very deadpan. There's a life lesson in there somewhere, dressed in a starched but productive shirt.
