First Blush (and then some): Signs of the times and other surprises

blinking light on tree limb

The female Dawn Jogger took off on her Menlo Park neighborhood run later than usual this morning but it was still dark enough for a blinking light hung from a tree limb to get her attention. What was it doing there – and why was it flashing? Those with a more supernatural bent might have explanations.

BirdhouseThe story continued in the afternoon. She’d been out the house on errands for much of the morning and had returned for lunch.

    BPP,
    I must say I am more than a bit jealous not to be traveling along on your INMenlo beat with you!! Hope your week is going along nicely! We hired our new person today. Whoopie!! Leaving Monday for Seattle. xxxLPP

    I have certainly no supernatural tendencies. But to me this looks like a warning sign for roadworks, sticking out bits on the roads, etc., left behind by road workers, or put there early for works later in the day. Nice bird house, by the by!

  3. A very cute birdhouse. And a very nice friend.
