Have you ever been stuck in a closet?
It’s a question I thought I would posit.
Could you escape in a minute?
Or would you relax and stay in it
Writing to Shakespeare, a sonnet.
(Oliver asked me to tell you that he did get out of the closet very quickly and yes, I need to practice learning how to spell my last name.)
WHEN I’M TRYING TO KEEP THE BIRDS FROM BEING SCARED AWAY BY OLIVER, I’LL PUT A PIECE OF CAMO FABRIC OVER THE BOTTOM THIRD OF A SLIDING DOOR. THAT WAY I CAN KEEP AN EYE ON THE BIRDS TO SEE IF THERE’S ANY ACTION GOING ON OUTSIDE AND THE BIRDS WON’T SEE OLIVER SLINKING ALONG ON HIS BELLY…TRYING TO SNEAK UP ON THEM.
YOU CAN SEE HOW WELL THIS SYSTEM (DOESN’T) WORK JUST BY LOOKING AT THESE TWO IMAGES….(SIGH)….OLIVER…MY LITTLE HELPER.
OLIVER HEARD ABOUT THE MOUNTAIN LION SPOTTED IN THE AREA AND IMMEDIATELY BEGAN TO PRACTICE HIS WRESTLING MOVES. SO FAR, HE HASN’T HAD A CHANCE TO USE HIS TECHNIQUE ON THE MOUNTAIN LION, BUT I THINK HE’S IN THE DEN USING THEM ON A MOUSE. THAT OR HE’S TORMENTING THE DOG AGAIN.
Like the title says, there was a bird at that feeder just moments before I fired the camera….not in focus, but it made me laugh.
By the way…I did not put sticky pads on Oliver’s paws and attach him to the window…he was flying high one minute and zooming toward earth the next…free as a bird…pun intended.
HEY! PAY ATTENTION! I CAN’T RELAX!!
DON’T BE MISLED…I AM STILL NOT RELAXED! I JUST LOOK RELAXED!
I TELL YOU I’M NOT RELAXED…THIS IS HOW I LOOK WHEN I’M REALLY, REALLY STRESSED.
SEE! STILL NOT RELAXED!
