I will not try to recap the last few days, there were a few interesting things that happened. For the last couple of weeks, I have had a shimmy (or shake, I don't know if 'shimmy' is really a word) in the front end of my van. I just made an appointment to have it looked at. In the meantime, I have had Red in this vehicle on a few different occasions.

When I arrived home, I found a visitor in my yard. I have become accustomed to children playing in my yard, but the neighborhood has been much quieter since the neighbor's house was burned down by an unhinged sociopath. The peace has been nice, but the flames did not scare off this little guy.
|He hopped up to me when I got out of my car.|
I saw him approach right when I stepped into my yard and he let me walk right up to him. I reached out to pick him up and he just watched me do it. Very strange.
After talking with him for a few minutes, he felt better and flew away. The next day there was six worms gift wrapped on my front step. I suspect that means his week is going better than it was before.
TOTALLY UNRELATED OBSERVATION:
This conversation happened in my front yard a few days ago.

SYDNEY: I accidentally hit him in the head with a bat.
ME: Well, is he okay?
SYDNEY: Yeah, it happens all the time.
