Despite the dreariness of this bird banding weekend (8 hours work for 18 birds total), I feel happier than I have in years. Perhaps there is new life in this old beast. Most of the credit goes to helpers Susie and Jessi, who invited this non-social person to a party Saturday night at which I had a grand old time. Grins, bad jokes, a good movie ("Amazing Grace") and enough DQ cake to regret later. But so what? For a brief moment in time I can truly say I'm a happy boy. Thanks so much for extending your family to the new "crazy uncle."
