Not So Bad
I kind of like the Blue Jays. I think they are a pretty bird, but not on top of my list for sure. I like the Cardinal a lot better, and the finch family, too.
I got a couple of pictures of a Blue Jay who was visiting in our back yard a few days ago. Here he is on top of the bracket that holds the sunflower seed. He’s about 35 feet from me. I’m sitting on the couch and taking this and the next picture through a double pane sliding patio door. (I never guessed they would be any good.)
I adjusted the zoom and took this second picture just as he turns around. He never knew I was anywhere around.
Beginning in 1957 I registered at the University of Tennessee. My major was accounting. Later I changed my major and graduated with a degree in Business Administration with a Statistics Major.
I enjoyed my college days. I lived at home with Dad, Mom, and my sister. I worked for my Dad in the summer and on weekends to save money for school. Dad was then owner of White Brothers Poultry & Egg Company.
Even earning minimum wage at $1.00/hour, it was pretty easy to save enough for school. I remember tuition was only $75 a quarter ($225/year) and books were very reasonable in those days. Can you imagine?
