Silver Springs

As you may have guessed I picked up a disk load of material on our trip to Silver Springs. M and I had a nice relaxing day strolling through an almost empty park since it was on a Thursday. There were a few bus loads of field trippers but they had color coated t-shirts and traveled in easy avoidable packs.

One interesting site was Silver Springs’ impressive displays of an avian nature. They were peppered through out the park and you simply can’t help but stop at each station and admire them. I guess like any group, much like our blogging community there will always be a couple of wiseguys to stir up the peace and cause trouble. This is a story of just such a case.

WiseGuy: Brawk! Hey FatBoy!
I: What the he…??
I to M: Who said that? I am about to pop somebody up side the head…
M: ~laughs~
I: Who you calling FatBoy, birdbrain!
WiseGuy: Brawk! FatBoy! Brawk!
M points at sign: “Don’t touch, we bite”
I to M: I am not going to touch him; I am going to pinch his head off!
I to WiseGuy: I bet you taste just like chicken!
WiseGuy: Brawk! FatBoy! Brawk!
I to M: I don’t see what’s so funny. How rude?
I: ~takes WiseGuy’s picture for later review~
M and I: ~Walk away, while M tries not to spit her Diet Coke out~

WiseGuy: Brawk! CYA FatBoy! Brawk!

M and I started our new diet this week. M of course is only participating for my benefit as she is quite perfect as she is! She prepared a lovely dish just last night with bits of …. Errrr…. Chicken, yea it was chicken!

Thanks for stopping by,

Craig Glenn

How appropriate. We just had chicken snacks in our house. You will get bored quickly, how about some tuna? Tuna is very good for you. Love the picture. You are very funny.

Dawn: Thanks for stopping by. All the birds were really beautiful. I have a few more to post later. Nothing like a trip to a nature park for blogging fodder.

MissB: Great to hear from you again. Tuna is out for me since I am alergic to fish. eating healthy is not that hard the hard part is doing the exercise.

Love this one Craig. It seems like the older we get, the harder it is to loose those extra pounds. I have found that swimming is one of the best forms of exercise and you do have that lovely pool. Good luck in it.

BTW ignore your brother he is just being....well your brother. Pesky people at best. :)

Sounds like you had a good time at Silver Springs, well, except for that wiseguy. Good luck on the new diet.

Hey Craig,

I love the photo. It sucks that people have to be so rude. Anyway, I enjoyed your story telling and humor.

Sreddy Yen said...

LOL~! Thanks for sharing this with us :o) I like the photo of the birds too~!

scot said...

I wasn't being rude... but I'm still laughing. this bird is my new best friend, At least until he makes a bald joke, then he's dinner.
