Lola makes a short visit to her nest on the last day of her overnighting on it. Late this Evening she joined Palemale on a tall London Plane where they went to sleep very close together.

Time's fun when you're having flies.

Imagine what it's like being born one of these creatures in our present society. People like Doug Blonsky and Neal Calvanese would probably want them to hold their breath and die so as not to be an eye sore for their park.

But I have looked into their beautiful eyes and I see pride and confidence and not a care in the world for selfish bullies like the two previously mentioned...

And I see them rising high above the wickedness of by fellow Man. One day when we are finally tired of the deceit and unworthiness of our present human leaders we may at that time gain the wisdom to model ourselves after these wholesome creatures, and who knows? We may be salvageable beings after all.

Palemale visits his nest in the late evening just before bedtime.

Rest your weary body my precious friend.

It was with a happy heart I watched Lola & Palemale going to sleep on the Eastside late Tuesday evening. This being the first night since March 7th that they both slept outside their nest. A touching sight for the eyes and a filling feeling to the soul.
