Thou mangled motley-minded flap-dragon! -- Sat., June 2

Out of my sight! Thou dost infect my eyes. 

~ From Richard III

Tonight, while passing time, I found this website of Shakespearean insults. (Thank you A.Word.A.Day). Go to the site below, read the insult, click "Insult Me Again," and you keep getting a new insult. Priceless. (Maybe I'm just easily entertained. I hope you are too.)

Gate guarding update: Tonight I am busy on the gate. Flow-back tankers are lined up down the road. It takes approximately 30-45 minutes for each tanker, plus other trucks with trailers are coming in to take out equipment.

Being a night owl my whole life, taking the 3 p.m. to 3 a.m. shift is a piece of cake. Work comes first. Blogging gets done, games on Facebook get played AND I work. Can't beat that.

Today's wildlife scenario: Two roadrunners (I'd venture to guess a pair), are out collecting bugs, going back and forth outside our rear picture window. A pair of mockingbirds are dive-bombing and attacking the roadrunners. It is very apparent that the mockingbirds feel their nest is in danger from the roadrunners. The roadrunner was on the move. I tried to get a good picture. Here's my best effort. 

One of the two roadrunners living by us.

We keep hearing stories from the truck drivers that they have been running over rattlesnakes in the road. One driver told me he has run over 10 rattlesnakes. Maybe that's why we haven't seen one yet. (Or maybe it's the constant replenishment of mothballs under all our vehicles.)

All for today. Short and sweet. Be sure to comment if you're so inclined. Bloggers love feedback!

If you spend word for word with me, I shall make your wit bankrupt.
