Today I heard

…a story concerning two men, grandfathers and neighbors, whose friendly rivalry each year over whose tomatoes would ripen first, eventually inspired one of them to stealthily and carefully paint his tomatoes red, while on the vine, just in time.


Today I Saw

..a crow, working, for minutes, to pry off pieces of sweet bread that had somehow become welded to the concrete near the Bent Bean drive-thru. The crow, bent on getting all he/she could, stayed put while cars came through, wheels 12 inches away. Wasps also wanted a share and did a bit of harassing. He/she snapped at them.

I decided to photograph, but not taste.
