Yeah, I know, I said I was done with this blogging stuff. But this morning, something happened. I had a lot of dreams last night and the one that stuck with me the most featured a young man that I worked with many years ago. He was a super nice kid and went on to study computer science in college. In the dream he was loudly stating that it would not be possible to have an “UNDERSTAND” button on any sort of computer program or machine. No more is remembered from this dream, but I awoke thinking how cool would that be if you could just click the “UNDERSTAND” button? The software would then tell you just what it all meant.
The other cool thing that happened this morning is that a small flock of turkeys appeared in our front yard. A tom and three hens. The tom was earnestly displaying his macho desirability while the hens pranced about pecking distractedly at the gravel in our driveway. Maybe there were microscopic grains or seeds or whatever snow fleas survived last week’s sleet storm. Maybe their pecking at the ground while the man-bird struts his stuff is just their way of saying “What EVER dude. You ALL that and a bag a chips.”
It’s a good thing the turkeys don’t come into the back yard to hang out under the bird feeders. The dog would find that completely intolerable.
