A box of goodies that friends dropped off last weekend. Love the wooden fishing reels! Objects like those are works of art by themselves

A musician friend gave me half an old piano. He made an interesting table out of the other half.

I made these collages using stripped down elements from the hammer mechanism of the piano

“Look. heat is manageable. One of the things we do is spread our wings which helps you lose heat. You can open your beak and do some panting or gasping.  It also helps you keep cool.Something to do with the lungs. Never looked into it.  Some like to squat close to the ground. Scratch a bit of a hole to get the cooler soil. Its all pretty simple really. And then…well you’ve just got to soldier on. There are eggs to lay!”
