Fragment Friday

1.  One of my tanka got accepted over at Ribbons. So it does pay to quit procrastinating and actually submit somewhere.

2.  I had to lock the dogs in the house while the lawn service came. And then I left for work. You'd think from the howls I left them in a desert with no food or water or chewtoys.

3.  Two doves have taken to roosting in the tree outside my bedroom window. So far they have cut off cooing by 9:00 p.m., so they get to stay. I never realized incessant cooing could be so annoying.

4.  How come grass grows in the rocked over sections of lawn, but not on the bare patches?

5.  I've been reading books about astronauts. When I feel whiny at my job, I stop and think about the training they have to go through to get into space.

Congrats on the tanka acceptance!
I didn't know doves could be annoying either.

Congratulations on the acceptance!
Over here it's wood pigeons, dawn to dusk.

Congrats.

And yes, wood pigeons or doves are some noisy brats.

Kathleen - thanks! Believe me, doves can be very annoying.

Constance Brewer said...

Carla - Thanks. I imagine wood pigeons are as loud and persistent as doves?

Constance Brewer said...

Gabriele - Thanks. I think we are all in agreement that doves/pigeons are little pains. :)

Carla said...

Persistent, certainly. Most of the time I don't mind them, though I know some people find them maddening.

Carla - maddening is a good word...
