It was an early morning wake up for me this Christmas day. I wanted to fly at least one of the birdies before we had to get cleaned up and dressed and go for family dinner over at one of Rich's sister's house. I had wanted to fly Hit Girl . . . but despite the fact that over the weekend she seems to have burned her calories fairly reliably, she didn't do so yesterday and last night. She was way over flight weight, and unsafe to fly. I tied her out in the fresh air and sunshine, hoping maybe later in the day she could be flown . . . but even then she was still too fat. She was put into her mews, with just a little food to hold her over through Monday, and will be taken out on Tuesday. The squirrels got the day off.
OK . . . gotta go to work tomorrow . . . so better get to bed.
