Meet MotherBearProject #2 Bear: Barney. I’m still having ear issues which I hear is common as a newbie to the project. He’s Barney because I had to cover a mistake with a crochet heart. Barney Clark was the first brave artificial heart recipient. Remember? He passed away, but wanted to help advance science with his efforts. So here’s Barney. (Karen’s second bear has blue jeans on…..oh it is so cute)
I made it for 8 hours without iphone, text, computer, email or the like, yesterday. I have to admit I was a bit anxious to see my mail and text messages by 5 pm.
I didn’t develop a facial tic or anything, but around 3 pm I was definitely thinking I wanted my FAST to be over. While I was busy, yesterday , it was of course, easy. As the day wound down though, I was ready to communicate via cyberspace again.
The wasps are back. I read they are pollinators too. Sigh. I have decided to try to trick them instead of kill them. I read you can make a fake wasp nest with a paper bag. They are territorial , and hopefully not too bright, so the bag should make them think there is already a nest here….so move along. We’ll see. I’m all about the bees and I can’t justify killing any pollinators!
