Morning Walk...

This morning on Furry Husband's and my walk with the dogs, we passed under this tree filled with blackbirds. I'm not sure which sort they were... grackles? starlings?

Some were making really odd noises that sounded strangely similar to sirens from emergency vehicles.

I told Furry Husband I thought some blackbirds had the power of mimicry.

He responded in a way I knew he was making fun of me:

"Did you just say, 'the power of mimicry'??"

Yes, I say waiting for further chop bustin'....

"Hmmm - 'the power of mimicry'.... I think if I was a super hero, I'd like to have the power of mockery."


You already do, dear.... you already do.....

You'll have to think up a super hero persona for yourself, then you two can have epic battles.

Ha ha. I'd get along great with your Husband. I love how you described your anticipation to be made fun of with "waiting for further chop bustin'" Kudos to you.
