Blue As the Sky

The Blue Jay finally came to pose for us
We got a not too good picture of him but just enough to show
that yes we have one flying around the back yard
showing off his beautiful crown.
He is also a brave little guy with all the  huge crows around.
for a bit of humor Here is one email I got

Yesterday my daughter again asked why I didn't do something useful with my time.
Talking about my "doing something useful" seemed to be her favorite topic of conversation.
She was "only thinking of me" and suggested I go down to the senior center and hang out with the people there.

I did this and when I got home, I decided to teach her a lesson about staying out of my business.
I told her that I had joined a parachute club.
She said, "have you lost your mind?? You 're almost 79 years old and you're going to start jumping out of airplanes?"
Ya! I proudly showed her that I even got a membership Air card.
She said to me, "My God!, where are your glasses! This is a membership to a Prostitute Club,
not a Parachute Club."
"Aw nuts! I'm in trouble again. What shall I do?  I signed up for five jumps a week," I told her.  She freaked.

Life as a senior citizen is not getting any easier
but sometimes it can be fun.

I have squirrels, hummingbirds, sparrows, crows, but no bluejays. I wish I had a bluejay.

Hiya ... that is a great story line ... loved it and you didn't even do it for April Fool's Day!

I'd laugh myself silly .. I'd love to tell my mother and uncle the joke - but too late .. others will enjoy!

Do you think you could take off the word verification during the challenge - it'll save a lot of time .. many thanks Hilary

Cheers Hilary

Hummingbirds, squirrels, robins, blue jays and sparrows are all my favorite birds.

Gattina - I thought it was funny
Old people can do funny things.
There are so many beautiful creatures in the world.
