Round these parts, you're likely to pass a turkey vulture or two having a yummy roadkill snack. The other day while driving around aimlessly (actually, I was trying to NOT go to the flea market) I came upon the local Turkey Vulture Dining Society weekly chapter meeting. I'm not kidding!
Unfortunately, they weren't too glad to see me and as I drove up they scattered up into the trees where they sat bitching to the Chapter President about how rude it was for humans to interrupt their luncheon.
Well! Far be it for me to disagree with a turkey vulture, but it pretty much looks like lunch was definitely over!
(I believe at one time this was a raccoon, but seriously folks, even for roadkill this is scant).
And since I'm on the subject of birds, here are a few avian-themed recent finds. An amber hen on nest mini salt. I love these little ones.
This parrot planter totally looks like something that would've been in my grandmother's home. I remember that when she'd get mad at her grandchildren for DARING to act like children (you know, giggle and wiggle) in her home, she kinda looked like this. SQUAWK!!!
Dad made it through surgery with flying colors and although he's in a huge amount of pain he's still retained his sense of humor and is marveling at the sensation of knowing his leg's not there but still "feeling" it at the same time. He's also on morphine and hallucinating--and that's fun because he KNOWS he's hallucinating so he gives you a blow by blow of WHAT he's hallucinating. One time he looked at me and said, "Christine, you should see all the sparkly blue bubbles floating around your head. I know I'm hallucinating them, but they are sooooo pretty!"
