Default .......not gonna make an entry this time

.........hey all, I am withdrawing my entry position from this illustrious competition. Some things have happened in the past week, other than rain, that prevented me free time outdoors.

I had an allergy attack (some kind of system poisoning) that prompted an emergency trip for some extreme steroid injections and have been propped in front of the TV in the cool.

This has happened before, it was not an entirely new experience. While I could not now pass a NASCAR, Major League Baseball nor an NFL test for maybe the next year or so, I am feeling pretty good, my eyes and mouth are not now swollen closed and things are coming along well. We start summer baseball next week, hopefully I will be ready for that.
....................................

But, no bird pictures from me this time and as Steven writes birds are scarce here yet too, however I did put out a seed feeder and a humminbird sipper so I was getting ready. Trouble is both feeders are inconvenient to photography from inside the house if there were birds interested in them.

I am really anxious to see what comes of this, thanks for the fun.

Hey boBB: hope you get to feeling better, does not seem like any fun. Sounds like a rough way to get out of work around the house!!!

BTW, the contest goes until a week from Monday, maybe next weekend you'll be up and running. Haven't heard of anybody having any luck this weekend.

Default get better soon!

Hey Bob,

Sorry to hear about your health issues. I certainly hope your on the mend and feeling better.

And Ted,
As for your trying to help a friend in his hour of need, a noble effort indeed, but that's most definitely a Fowl Play!!

Default .............tweet tweet let's all sing like the birdies

Or something like that it went...

Thanks guys, I am feeling much better but will need to be careful of the sun for a while. I've been throught this more than a couple times since moving to Texas 35 years ago. Before moving here I never had as much as a bad sunburn in my entire life, but now......

Ted, to tweet is to tweet and great analytical minds do think somewhat alike huh (the profile avatar), do you tweet? http://twitter.com/boBBrennan

Default Hi Bob

Thanks for sharing your Twitter address. Through that site, I was able to get to your SmugMug Gallery. I enjoyed all the photos, but I really ejoyed seeing (for the 2nd time) your gallery on the B17G. Great plane and great series of photos.

I'd forgotton just how good those photos were.

"Don't shoot until you see the white ....uh, orange of their eyes!!"
Took a walk around the neighborhood. Since no birds in the back yard, I went birdhunting.


Sandhill Crane this past weekend.
