TIME: 10:19 AM
PLACE: Back yard
I took Oreo out this morning and lordy, was it hot again. I stood in the shade of the nut tree that my dad planted for me. While I stood there, I heard a mockingbird and looked around to see if I could spot him. There he was, at the tippy top of our pine tree. The pine is taller than our 2-story house, so he was waaay up there. He was singing beautifully and lucky for me, stayed there while I ran back inside and grabbed my little camera. He even sang a bit while I took pictures.
