One Good Thing, One Bad Thing...You Decide Which is Which

Today I saw a woman put her finger in her nose, then pick a magazine off the rack with the same hand. She was two feet from me. Arrrgggg! When she left, I took everything she'd touched and put it in the return bin.

I'm a bit of a bird geek. My parents' house always had a large bird feeder that attracted hundreds of species, since we lived on the edge of town. A copy of the seminal book Birds of Alberta by W. Ray & Jim Salt was kept near the window for reference, so I learned the names and songs of many small species. I still love to sit and listen to the chickadees scold me while they nosh on a big ball of suet. Is this an experience one misses growing up in the big city?
