The queen’s sun deck

Picture of the Moment

Yesterday was the first day since May 24 that I was able to visit blogs, do a little reading, and leave a few LIKEs and comments.

On any given day, I normally visit a minimum of 100 blogs. I visited 13 yesterday, so I’m not back in the blogosphere at full strength yet. I’m heading that way.

If you’re one of the 137 people who have visited my blog since May 24 and either liked one of my posts, commented on one of my posts, or possibly even followed me, AND I don’t know you, rest assured that I will be getting by your blog soon to see who you are and what you’re about, leave a few LIKEs, maybe some comments, and perhaps even follow you. I can tell you, though, that if your blog is 100% religious or 100% pornography, I won’t be LIKEing, commenting, or following. That’s just the way it is.

Of course, everything is dependent on how much quality time Zoey the Cool Cat demands. She’s patiently waiting for me out on the balcony after having requested that we rename the “balcony” to “The Queen’s Sun Deck.”

          Oftentimes? I believe all the time. It’s basic human nature simply because people like to be with people who are similar to themselves in thoughts, actions, and even appearance. It takes a lot of work to get out of one’s comfort zones and meet other people. That’s the purpose of blogging, for me. However, I want to know people, not religious dogma, pornography, etc. On the other hand, though, if the dogma and pornography is only 50% of a blog, I will search out the other 50% to see who the person really is. Does s/he have a mom, a dad, grandparents? A pet? What kind? Etc. The people are much more interesting than the dogma and the porno.

        HA HA same here 😉 Then there are the regal rabbits that muscled their way in…and I thought the felonious felines were demanding! At least the toad (her name is Toad Lips) is low maintenance. She likes to hop in the rain and soak up sunshine and snap up singing crickets with very little fuss. Thanks for the grins. Cheers!

            How dolefully cothurnal for you! I would miss them too. There is something about a toad that turns the evening into pure magic. They really are delightful creatures with that constant bulbous-eyed brood and dancing little hop. Ghost crabs are another fascinating feature of evening’s descent. Do you see them on your San Diego coasts?

                Marvelous! Oh yes, they are. I love crabbies. I hover around crab burrows waiting for them to emerge. It’s wonderful gazing into those mesmerizing marble eyes…So are many intertidal zones there in San Diego?

                    That is far too groovy for words. I’m thrilled to learn that. Nothing more delightful than a nice marshy area to go swamping about in!!! We do recognize and right our mistakes sometimes, as a species. Absolutely wonderful. Best wishes- Autumn Jade

                      When I got here in April 1993, San Diego was starting to concrete all of its rivers. The citizens had a fit and voted it down, as well as voting most of the yo-yos out who wanted to do that. The last thing San Diegans wanted to be was like Los Angeles, which didn’t have a single natural river channel left. All concrete.

                      Then researchers started proving that we need natural rivers to slow the water down and let it soak in, in order to prevent catastrophic flooding. We need barrier reefs and swamps for the same reason in helping to control flooding from hurricanes and winter storms.

                      Mother and Father Nature do a pretty darn good job if we’ll just leave them alone and not try to help!

            That’s called extinction. I read in a science magazine that some 40,000 or more frogs will be extinct in the next year. That’s what infill and choking off wetlands is doing in California and the whole world. Too bad I love frogs and pollywogs and our earth needs them too.Too much insecticide, herbicides and GMOs have killed off what frogs eat. No food, no frogs.

            Glad your back and sunning on the Queen’s Deck!

                Oh, I love hearing you say that. We fight for green belt and wetlands, but money pushes hard every hour. We are lucky to live in the Laguna de Santa Rosa and many cities rope off lowlands for the frogs, birds and baby fish.
