Megatron VS Optimus Prime. Right? I looked it up on the internet. This one seemed fitting for today. I don’t know why. I’m not going to speculate or reflect. No time. I’m on call for work and I have been up pretty much all night with issues. Bound to the computer, I might as well make the most of my time and try to accomplish something with the occasional break for fun. This bench is deceiving because up close and in person it didn’t look all that great. But after I stepped back and took the pics, it really pops as an outstanding and  artistic design. One of my favorites. Ever. And I have a lot of bench pictures from the years gone by that I never did get around to fully posting. Maybe this is the year! I’ll try and do more throughout the day as I get tired of work work work. I consider this fun. Hopefully you do to! Later.

Oh! One more thing as FYI. Since I was up so early, and outside, I got to see the elusive giant Blue Jay swoop into the yard and try to attack all the other birds away from the feeder! Really exciting stuff for me since I feel neglected by the really big birds of prey lately. No pictures though. He was really blue and big and beautiful. But I’ve become a lazy birdwatcher. Literally. I just sit there and watch the birds. Maybe tomorrow I’ll catch the photo fever. Until then, happy Sat! Toodles.

Hummingbird. Perched. I have more but I can’t find them. Sad face.

The Hawk we had hanging out in the backyard earlier in the spring.

Cardinal. Male.

Cardinal. Male. Another one? The same one? Not sure, we had several pairs flying around, yelling all spring.

Cardinals are my favorite bird.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Cardinal. Female. Pretty sure. She’s so scraggly looking. Women of the wild. Not fair.

Yellow Goldfinch. If you look in the middle of the picture. These birds hardly ever come and pose right in front of me. So annoying.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Nuthatch. Thought it was a woodpecker for a very long time.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Don’t know what kind but I like the picture.

Last shot for the morning. Can’t tell what bird this was, I took this picture mostly for that “arty” effect. I have more birds but I really need to go now. Have a fab afternoon. Later.

It’s Official!

Just checked the website and the scores were posted for the Final Exam I took today. I was sure I was in the “A” category, but not positive. I am not above making a read-back error (although I will strive to never do that in my professional career).

I worked real hard for this. Just like all my classmates. The mood was serious and intense. We were all first-course nervous.

The professor posted a message saying a few of the questions were reviewed and modified for accuracy. You may have an additional point or two on your score.

Click over to the grade section…yes! Official! I am now solidly in “A” territory! What a boost for the next semester! Longer and harder I hear. More intense. We’ll be getting right into the good stuff. I have to keep up!

Thank you, all, again, for the suh-port! It helps when you know you have people out there pulling for you!

Thank you professor! Now I can say how awesome she was without sounding like I am sucking up.

Good luck fellow students! If any of them might happen to ever stumble upon this: I hope you are just as happy as I am!

I feel like I took a marshmallow pill or something. I’m getting all soft and gooey.

Drink time! I’ll make it a beer. We only have one in the house so it will be a short celebration, but it’s all mine!

I’m going to go outside, fill up the bird feeder, take a seat, watch the wildlife and soak it all in enjoying the moment. Talk later.
