When I was a kid, I liked to read and many of those stories were about animals. I loved Beatrice Potter’s Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle. I spent many happy hours in the Green Forest with Sammy Jay, Reddy Fox, and Tommy Titmouse, rounded out by John Calvin Reid’s congregants in “Bird Life in Wington”.

I think of them still, as I watch them from my windows. And just like many of those characters, my feathered friends have personalities too. They’re city birds, after all. I think they know I’m watching, so sometimes they pose nicely, and other times, they let their “true colours shine”.

“I am woman, I am fearless, I am sexy, I’m divine, I’m unbeatable, I’m creative. Honey, you can get in line!” Emmy Meli
“I fart in your general direction” – Sir Galahad, Monty Python & the Holy Grail
“Go ahead! Make my day!” – Dirty Harry, Sudden Impact
“Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I’m an agent of chaos…” – The Joker, The Dark Knight
“I don’t want to play, I just want to bang on the drum all day (I’m gonna bang now)” – Todd Rudgren
“Is that you, Max?” – Nora Desmond (Carol Burnett)
“Yippie kayak, other buckets!” – Det. Boyle, Brooklyn 99

Some people aren’t just missing the odd screw, they’re missing the whole freakin’ toolbox!


Happy Wednesday from all of us!
