Hearing the three young kids from the balcony above us calling out to our cat "Mucky, here Mucky". English is not their first language and the little one is just starting to talk. As for Monkey, she will come to any name as long as she gets some attention or treats! When the kids play on the grass Monkey always goes over to them!

A friend of mine had a cat named Mehitabel. She would answer to anything with about the right number of syllables and said with the same intonation/rhythm, e.g., Dummy kitty, stupid cat.

Last thing that made you smile?

One of my college drama teachers had a bulldog named Mehitabel! Haven't heard that name in centuries!

I had just filled the birdbaths and right after I came inside there were three little birds all taking turns with a splash in the water. It has been months without rain so it makes me so happy to see them splashing around and having fun, plus getting the water to drink.

This is a pretty interesting article about new findings at Jamestown, site of the first permanent English colony in America. It's about an hour northwest of me: Jamestown archaeologist Kelso and historian Horn: Public reaction to four bodies and silver box.
I can easily understand about the cuisine beginning in Virginia. Prior to that area of Jamestown, it was Native American foods. And except for a few tribes on the East Coast, they were mostly hunters and looked for other foods in the woods. Lots of wild onions, and other herbs that grew wild.

So yes, Virginia does come to mind very easily.

We always have a birdbath too but it has been so hot lately the birds have been staying away from it. I ask my DH if the water gets too warm? Maybe we should change it more often.

I know the water had been getting real hot with our 90+days so I change it at least twice a day or more. They wait in the tree when they see me spraying the water into the baths. They are smart!
