http://sopastcaring.blogspot.com/) suggestion that I wear some orange, and the moon's morning light show, I rummaged in the wardrobe and found this copper coloured blouse, which is as close as I get to orange. Mr. ETB said it looked, "Regal." Yes, that's me-the queen at her court in the shoe section of the Council Bluffs Goodwill. Or something like that. Alas, I can't order anyone pilloried, so what good is looking regal if you still have to do the laundry and grocery shopping?
Even the robin's feathers have deepened to their winter colours. We have robins year-round in Nebraska, but you tend not to notice them in the winter months, and at any rate, they don't sing until spring. If you live in a cooler climate, put some chopped raisins out, and you may be able to attract some robins in the winter months.
