Just a New Hairdo

If I'm not very careful, I'll be sporting a new hairdo. The little birds Mama, is a very protective mother. The nest is within 5 feet of my back patio doors. That is the entrance we use all the time, We have for 21 years. We saw no reason to change after that length of time. I was fixing our supper (evening meal, which some of you call dinner) last night, and SWOOSH, when I went out. This started when I had returned home from work. But I thought, that it was because I startled her, after it being quiet with no one around all day. You know how many trips it takes in and out of the house to fix something on the grill, and this was a charcoal one. Plus the fact, I was doing it all, DH was resting after a game of golf :) So, Mama bird set up a plan of attack, she stood watch, and swooped my head the instance I came out on the deck. She was so close I could feel the ruffling of her wings in my hair. We both prevailed, though, she kept swooping, and me making many trips in and out, trying to get our meal completed. All I know to say is I guess I'll start using the front entrance for the next week. There is no way I would try to get more pictures of them now. The end result would be like Alfred Hitchcock's, "The Birds". You know the scene where the peoples eyes are just black holes. She is one more mean mama. I didn't realize how fast these little boogers grow. The feathers on the wings are developed and one soon will be pushed out of the nest I'm afraid because there is not enough room. Well enough about that. I want to take the opportunity to THANK all of my loyal readers for looking and especially the ones that comment. good or bad, I need your input, so I can keep improving on my creativity. So keep them coming, maybe adding your own ideals of what you would like to see. I'll take them all criticism or compliments. Well I now have to decide whether to do or undo my hair before I venture out the door to go to work. Again thank you for reading.

A remake of "The Birds" starring Miss Shelia!! Can't wait to see this movie. I love your stories and pictures - they're my smile for the day.

She (mama bird) should have attacked allan for being lazy on the sofa after his excursion on the golf course and you having to cook outside. Isn't like a man!!!
