Poor, Poor Pigeons
Blogger has been playing a weird trick on my usual browser of choice, Safari. When I write a post, the toolbar that normally appears above the text, allowing me to add photos and adjust fonts, disappears. When I open Blogger using Google Chrome, the toolbar appears and works fine. Why do I think the corporate minds at Google are forcing me to use Chrome and abandon Safari? I suspect conspiracy.
(I'm not sure why Safari is my browser of choice, because by most accounts it's a substandard browser. My underdog-supporting nature, I suppose.)
Anyway, another crazy week has come to an end. Yay! Poor Dave is still firing on all four cylinders today as he finishes up the European Honor Band festival. Last night we went to a dinner for festival directors, held at the Waldorf hotel, and tonight I'll go to the concert with our neighbors Chris and Linda. But today, while Dave is at school working with students, I get to relax with Olga.
Our neighborhood pigeon woman has vanished. She has not been in her doorway since about Wednesday, and all her boxes are gone. I wonder what's going on? The pigeons collect in the mornings and wait around hopefully, but no one brings them food and eventually they disperse. I hope she's OK.
