I have my cardiac test this afternoon... hoping that goes well but it's also my TOM and I am very crampy and bitchy today.
One of my take-aways from Calgary was that I kept seeing pairs of birds that I was unfamiliar with. I was told while I was there that they were mockingbirds.
Unfortunately, I was unable to catch them on camera but a google search turned up a picture of one from this person's Picasa gallery: http://picasaweb.google.com/KarenMaine10433/AlbertaVacation2009# - I do not know Karen Maine but if you look at the third picture (in the top row) from that link - you will see a mockingbird just like the ones I saw while I was in Calgary.
I don't know if I can link a FB video like this or not but I got video of a guy trying to drum up business by tossing a sign... http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=10150627784060158&comments
On Saturday I went out for a walk in the afternoon with one of the girls and we encountered a 90ish old woman who was lost and we helped get her back to the retirement home she lived at, so that was a nice moment of good karma.
I spent most of Sunday dreadfully hungover after the BBQ on Saturday night and I think I handled the flight home on Monday far better than the flight out there BUT I was more nervous coming home because it was really crappy weather in Calgary on Monday morning.
