1. That once upon a time someone with a headache chewed some willow bark, and figured out that Aspirin was good.
2. That there is a black (?!) squirrel living in our hedgy driveway.
3. That I have a neighbor who is patient enough to train blue jays to eat out of her hand, and is gracious enough to let me feed them by hand too, when I did none of the initial work of gaining their trust
4. That tomorrow I work only ½ day
5. That this too shall pass.
