This is my response to the Ragtag Daily Prompt of Thursday, 19 July 2018 — Welcome.
Dear Readers, I want to thank you all for the get well wishes you sent me when I last posted. They were much appreciated and I apologise for not responding individually to your comments.
This flu really sucks big time. I had to hit the asthma meds really hard. Yesterday I started a course of antibiotics for the associated respiratory infection, and it may be just a placebo effect, but I feel I can breathe a little easier now. I was also able to stay awake for a few hours today and had my first coffee in five days, so I rate that as an improvement.
But enough of such doom and gloom. Here is a photo of Mr or Ms Willy Wagtail on my back fence.
I would normally welcome such visitors, but it keeps flying into the dog yard. I think it may be after dog hair for nesting material, or maybe it has a death wish. I keep telling it that dog hair is not good for little birds because the hair can get caught around their claws. This has happened to my canary and it required a visit to the vet to free the claw. I shall have to clean up the more obvious drifts of hair accumulating outside.
