Sharing

It was a normal spring morning. Coffee in hand I opened the front door to hear the songs of the birds more clearly. There is the wild cherry tree at the side of my driveway that now catches the sun the fallen 100-year-old tulip tree used to block.  I adjust my eyes to the new forest profile and notice a large black bird sits on the hefty right branch.  Ah, yes, an American black vulture sits patiently and studies me as I sip my coffee.  I walk to the bench on the front porch and he does not move.


I call to my husband and tell him of our new visitor.


"He is checking your general state of health this morning.  We ARE getting older you know!"  Hubby gently shares this thought.

Uh oh, we have noticed the turkey vultures circling closer these days. I thought they were drooling over a possible chicken or goat demise but now, thanks to your hubby, I'll have to rethink that. LOL

Well look at it this way - they wouldn't be hanging around if you didn't still have some good meat on your bones! Hm. I hope that sounded as flattering as I intended it...

Snort. :) It reminds me of a poster of two vultures sitting together on a a branch and one looks over to the other and says "Patience, my ass. I'm going to kill something."

I'd go out every morning and show that vulture just who he's dealing with :)

congrats on POTW

Hah! I often wonder why the vultures aren't outside of my door some mornings. Congrats on the POTW!

Congratulations on the POTW. You know, I always forget that you have more than one blog. It never occurred to me that you post on this one regularly. I'll have to check it more often.
