Tidbits

Fried fish fillet with my usual sides. That parsley garnish is from the patio garden. The start we repotted was pretty far along so It’s yielding sprigs already.

We’re still getting orioles at the feeder, there are at least four hanging about. Here’s hoping they stay and nest.

Some of the cameras have developed a permanent haze that cannot be wiped away. If it’s a lens fog it’s on the inside where it can’t be reached without taking the camera apart.

Mmm… fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy.

I learned from the last batch to line the pan against the melting cheddar. The tortillas were first smeared with bean dip and then layered with ground beef and cheese and then heated.

I may have gone overboard with the cotija. On the plate with the tacos and nacho chips are two varieties of bean dip, pico de gallo, guacamole, chopped jalapeno, and chopped onion.

While I had the Nikon P900 in hand stalking the orioles I noticed that one had lit upon the stump. I was a half second too late with the snap.

In this photo Bitsy naps on my lap, Gabe is on squirrel watch, and a book is open on the TV via the Kindle android app on my main Windows machine. Amazon offers a Windows Kindle reader app but for whatever reason the Windows app will not sync reading progress to Android apps although the last page read on Android apps is noted when a book is opened in the Windows version. I had given up reading my Kindle books on the big screen because that glitch made finding my place in a particular book difficult when switching among desktop PCs, laptop, phone, and tablets. It led to keeping several books open, each on a separate device. Not that there is anything wrong with that. It may have been a deliberate choice by Amazon to foster sales of their own Reader devices or it may be just Amazon mad at Microsoft for personal rather than commercial reasons. [Android on Windows] I’m using option 5.
