~ I just looked at next year's school calendar and briefly thought that I need to check my son's school calendar to see if we have breaks at the same time. Then I remembered that he will be off to college, so it won't matter. *sigh*
~ Tonight is "Senior Night" at the football game. It's my last Senior Night, so I'm feeling just a tad bit sad today.
~ Interesting story from my mountain school: Earlier this week, the custodian was walking across the parking lot and noticed a pigeon walking in the lot. He walked up to it, and the pigeon hung around him. Then, when he held out his arm, the pigeon flew onto it. Big clue that it was tame and belonged to somebody. One of the 2nd grade teachers (the one from the "Skunkape" fame) had walked out to his car, so the custodian called him over. They realized the bird had bands on his legs, so they put him in a net and the teacher took it home. After researching, he found the owner, who lives in Asheville, NC. Turns out that the pigeon is a racing pigeon that had been in a race before Sandy hit. The guy said that a lot of people lost their pigeons, so he was really happy to get him back. The owner said he couldn't get over here for a few days, but in the meantime the teacher did more research and found that when the birds land, they need food & water for a couple of days, then, if you let them go, they will fly home. The teacher called the owner, and they decided to give it a try. The bird will be releases tomorrow, since they have to be released during the day and the teacher comes to school when it's still dark. Fingers crossed he makes it home!
~ CH wanted to go camping this weekend, but I just need a weekend to be at home to watch football and just veg out.
~ I was given a bass flute last night at flute choir so I can practice and get re-acquainted with it. It felt so strange in my hands after 30 years! I had forgotten what it feels like.
~ If you've been hit by Sandy, hope all is well with you.
