Is that a feather or are you just happy to see me?

Picture it...today as I am leaving this little store I start to back up my truck and over on the road I see this little bird ,flopping around. Oh great, it must have been hit by a car.At first I started to continue on my way because

A.flopping birds scare the crap out of me and
B. I had no clue what to do with it.

Well, just then another bird flies up next to the injured one like it was saying "come on ! get up! "

I can't take the guilt of just leaving it there. I pull the truck back into my parking spot and go back into the store. there are 3 old ladies gathered there, talking.

"Excuse me, do any of you know anything about birds? There's a little bird in the road right there ,it looks like a car hit it but it's still alive. "

They all gather and look out there at the bird. It is still there ,flopping around in the middle of the road.

One lady says "Oh Dear, let me go get a box."

As she leaves to get a box I say "I'll go over there and make sure no one runs over it. "

I head over there with the other 2 old ladies and all of a sudden the flopping bird flies up in the air. With all that flopping going on it was not apparent that what we were actually seeing was TWO birds, having kinky bird sex in the middle of the road.

"Oops! Nevermind about that box.....mmmm k."

Well, I guess I won't be going back to that store any time soon. That was embarrassing as hell. How could I have known ? I have never seen bird sex before. Gah!

(bird in photo is not the actual bird/birds)


Tried on my dress this morning . Looked just like a stuffed bratwurst. Isn't THAT special.

Note to self: ask kids if I can wear a mu mu to the wedding.

I am pretty sure there is no way to lose 10 (or 40 ) pounds by Saturday so what do I do? I have the overwhelming urge to just go ahead and eat. I'm so disgusted I go have the Chinese buffet for lunch.

If ya can't beat 'em.....

Well, back to work and Cavuto is begging for his w.a.l.k.

Later peeps :)

Yeah, birds do it too. That's how they get eggs. Good that they do it on the ground, could get all wrapped up in it and fall out of a tree. You are NOT fat! I'm not fat either, I'm just short for my height. G5

a cat hung in a curtain cord?... hmmm, yes, it sounds a lot like kinky bird sex actually. :))

that's hilarious. but actually it's good it wasn't a bird in need of help-- that you would have handled-- cuz i just watched one of those medical shows the other day-- shaddup, you know i'm addicted!-- anyhow some guy picked up a dead bird to put it in the trash... he was a mason, and very healthy-- within days he was on his death bed--- he nearly died before he was diagnosed with -- guess what--- ? --- west nile virus ! who the hell knew??? it is very rare to get it from a bird , but it has happened a few times. he is alive but 100 percent disabled now and nearly crippled. never touch a sick or dead bird. FYI.

better go get you a dress... wishful thinkin aint gonna cut it this time.

i bet i cry on the wedding day-- i wanna be there so bad. we all do. danielle feels really extra bad-- like she lied, or broke a promise-- and she doesn't even have anything to do with it. if i could send her alone and feel ok about it i would... i just can't. ugh.

tell them all i love em... and remind them of old town in SD-- and the old timy pix. i just remembered that today-- and also seaport village is cool. they have mimes and fire eaters, and jugglers etc.

across the street from there -- if it's still there, is the bbq restaurant that top gun was filmed at-- they have good food too.

damn-- i even wanna go on their honeymoon with em. LOL

love you all..
