Wren in my house again  
Thanks everyone for the well wishes. I had a bit of a bad night. Woke up still hurting. Chris made me a joint shake. It will suck when I run out of these as they discontinued them. But I decided to go outside since it was overcast and cool to do some yard work. I weeded some gingers that were popping up where I didn't want them and I started to feel much better. My doctor said that to fight fibro you have to exercise even when you feel bad and that seemed to work. I can turn my head again. Well that wasn't until later in the morning.

And I have a wren again but not for reasons you'd think. The babies all fledged today except for one. The youngest. I was sitting on the couch and saw the last baby on top of the plant basket and I could tell he was too small compared to the others that flew away. I was on the phone with Chris. And then he jumped and fell straight down. Can't fly. It's the youngest and can't follow the others. So I went out and put him back in the nest. But then he climbed out and jumped down AGAIN. I was watching closely because the hens were in the area. Leafie saw him and came over. He held still and I ran out there because if she found him she'd eat him. I can't keep putting the darn thing back in the nest. He can only "fly" 3 inches. So I brought him inside and have been feeding him mealworms. What an annoying bunch of birds this has been. I plan to only keep him for two days. Long enough for his tail to grow in so he can fly then let him out. The parents should take him at that point.

So I'm hoping I'm fully recovered by tonight. I do feel loads better. I'd like to take the kayaks to Weeki Wachi tomorrow and try that river. It's so gorgeous. Oh and youtube finally worked this morning and I want to show you the video I uploaded finally of Weedon Island.

So I really enjoyed my first saltwater outing. I want to go back to this place and try to get further.

Here is a video of the times the adult wren got in our house for those of you that haven't seen it.

I made progress in my art today too. I'm very happy. I finished inking Leeanix. I just need to ink her palm tree and background which shouldn't take too long. So I hope to soon have that colored up. I'd like to have it so that she will go on the bow of my boat. So when you see the video you'd see here there on that blue point.

I got one of those floating pool noodles made of foam. I cut it into pieces and put it on the legs of my tripod. Now if the tripod falls in the water it will float and I won't lose my camera. Looks really funny but well it's a life vest for my camera basically. I'll make a video about that. It's neat how I have to rig everything I bring to float and be water proof.

Fibro really sucks. Such a stupid unnecessary condition. Pain only I feel and all tests come back negative because there's nothing really wrong. They are fake sensations. But it affects you as if it were real.

Yes this whole family of birds has been such a pain. I wish my bluebirds had better luck raising babies and being more visible.

Yes the video shows things so much better than the still photos. You get an idea of the size with the numbered markers. We only made it a bit past one mile so two miles total coming back.

Yes having the tripod float I know feel much better about taking it with me.

Those wrens must really like you. I'm glad Leafie didn't find the baby. At least our nesting wrens stayed out in the birdhouse, but these are House Wrens which I don't think are as bold toward people as Carolina Wrens are.

I bet there is something really going on with Fibro since I know so many people who have it, and I may have it. Exercise really only gets you in shape so you can better tolerate the fibro pain. The fever is weird though. I only had it on that very first awful flare up that was about a year ago, but it got up to 100. It makes me wonder if it's an autoimmune disorder, but I don't know what it attacks since it presents differently in different people.

I guess so. I hope he learns to fly a little bit at least. I'd like to release him.

Luckily it passed and I'm feeling better now. Seems it's a neural disorder.

I've heard that exercise is the best thing for fibro. Though it must be hard to make yourself exercise when hurting!

Hmmm...now I know why you have a baby wren. You could have always fed him to your snake :P I hope his parents take him back. Otherwise you might have atame wren!

Your video of the wren was amusing :) Pesky is right!

Your kayaking video was relaxing. Did Chris write/play the first bit of music?

Cool to think of pool noodles for your camera :)

And I look forward to your finished Leeanix!

Yeah when it hurts really bad I dont' want to move.

No way. I have purposely never fed my snake any birds so he might not have the urge to eat any of mine. Rodents only. I'm keeping him until I figure something out.

Yes he wrote the first and the second song.

It looks pretty neat.

I'm getting close.

Okay, rodents only. I get it.

Ah, beautiful music! Tell Chris I said so :)

And I look forward to your finished Leanix. Bah on the technical problems.
