A piece of tinsel is caught in the birch tree outside my window.  How long has it been there?  When I catch sight of it out of the corner of my eye, I look up.  I think someone's coming up the path to the front door of the two downstairs condo, maybe up the stairs to the two upstairs ones, one of...

Yesterday, I was awakened at 7 am by the bright loud 'caw' of a crow near my bedroom window. Alarmed, but groggy, I hopped out of bed, stumbled into the bathroom, and got ready for a full day of work at home.
