Update - Hummingbird - I Dreamed A Dream

Yesterday Frank had his appointment with the oncologist surgeon. The doctor says that Frank is doing well. In a month Frank will have another CT scan and another appointment with the surgeon. No appointment in between unless Frank starts feeling bad and running a fever.

This is a female Ruby-Throated Hummingbird. Not the greatest picture, but the best I could get the other day. I'll keep trying.

I wish that I could embed this video into this page. The video is of a show like the USA's American Idol called Britain Has Got Talent. The voice of Susan Boyle is the best I've ever heard. She is singing the song "I Dreamed A Dream" . The seven minutes or so you listen to her is not wasted... you will be uplifted; I promise.

Here are the words to the song:

I Dreamed A Dream

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving.

Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used
And wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung
No wine untasted.

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hope apart
As they turn your dream to shame.

And still
I dream he'll come to me
That we will live the years together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms
We cannot weather...

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I'm living
so different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed
The dream I dreamed.



  1. So thankful that Frank got a good report. Hope you two enjoy a bit of a break.

  2. Glad everything is looking good for Frank. I'm sure he's thrilled to not have a doctor's appointment for a month!

  3. Hi Zaroga!
    I'm glad Frank got a good report! I got to listen and see the video of Susan Boyle singing this song on "Britian's Got Talent" show, and I was blown away, as most everyone in the audience. Too bad we judge people by the facade of their flesh and not their inner character and talent!

  4. I'm glad to hear your husband got a good report, Zaroga! And thank you so much for sharing this video of Sharon Boyle! She brought tears to my eyes...that was absolutely beautiful. I love stories like that...


  5. Yes I saw the video that you are talking about..that lady has a wonderful voice but oh how she does not look 47 years old..She really needs to do something with herself.
    I have my hummingbird feeder up but have not had any visitors yet..It usually takes them awhile to find it. I think your picture that you took is great...

  6. I am glad to here things are doing well. I love the voice. She was awesome. Also Thanks for letting me know I am in a toad mode today. LOL
    Humming birds are so fun to watch.
    Have a great weekend.
