Your Weekly Distraction


On this strange day of all days, when one goes out and one comes in, and we know not where the ship of state will be steered, I share with you more of my finds encountered this week online.

This week I saw a big anhinga standing on the back of a turtle that was standing atop a small rock. Unlike this photo I found on Pinterest, the turtle I saw had pulled in head and limbs, stoically awaiting relief. Anhingas, relatives of cormorants and ubiquitous here in Southwest Florida, spread their wings to dry them and make the next flight possible.

Now if in this new year you have pledged thrift and better nutrition, here’s an idea you may well want to try, as I do. Glass lunch jars to fill with homemade “instant” noodle soup. One can buy these jars online and in Asian stores. I would use pint mason jars myself, since I bought a case of them for $6.99 two years ago at the Tractor Supply Store. Why pay more for only one jar???

And now, your weekly foot tapper with The Dead South for having suffered through this week’s sorry excuse for news, plus checking out the above items of dubious interest. I love this!
