In the middle of the day I remembered that I needed to go pick up one last thing at the mall. I pulled up a map and decided which way to go when I left work. I was about 1/2 way there when I saw a traffic sign about an accident in that direction so I decided it was not meant to be today.. and I went home. After I went home I changed my mind and took a different route. All in all the traffic was not as bad as I expected .. until I got to my exit. I was NOT the only person planning on going to the mall at that exact moment. As soon as I exited I sat on the access road for a very long time. I have always thought there are a lot of bad drivers around here and now I have proof.  I have no idea what was going through this drivers mind .. really .. there are no driveways near where he appears to be turning…. he ended up going straight just like the rest of us

Where is he going?

Where is he going?

I am not sure why but in the fall and winter there are a LOT of birds in San Antonio. I told Lily its because they all flew here from the north. Its very hard to describe and even harder to photograph but they always seem to be hanging out near large parking lots (malls, grocery stores, etc). They are like crows only smaller with big long tails ..  totally like a scene from “The Birds”. This is the best picture I could get for now considering I was sitting in my car at a red light.

Birds, birds, birds

Birds, birds, birds

    Those noisy birds are called grackles, and a large group of them is called a plague (wonder why!). A cool thing about them, though, is they can mimic human voices.

    Thanks Nicole! My IQ just boosted a few points!
