The Joy of Outdoor Shows

Last week Tulsa Mayfest lived up to its reputation as a wet show. It wasn't as bad as it could have been. Giant hailstones hit OKC one day, only about 50 miles away. Tornadoes tore up parts of Oklahoma while we were there. Still, when it wasn't raining, Tulsa came out in droves to support its arts festival. This is one of the better-coordinated events I attend, and there are no words adequate to thank the devoted volunteers who make life easier for the artists.

Terrie's out of school for the summer. She's still carrying a 4.0 gpa. Not too shabby for a grandma.

I just have to brag about my orioles. I counted 5 male Baltimores at the same time either at the feeders or waiting for the feeders. They are so beautiful and make such a pretty song. They're already going through the grape jelly, though. I'm going to have to find it in bigger jars.

Hummingbird fact for today: Most hummingbirds molt in winter in the tropics, out of sight of northern observers.
