Photo Album and Mr Sharky

I think the photo album is amazing, congratulations Shirley on setting it up. I especially liked Mr Sharky, gave me a laugh for the day. Pippa, you have done well with your birds. I tried to save a baby Blackbird once and it died, our girls were very disappointed with my skills.

Thanks Christine, it's been fun working on it. The photo shoot with Mr. Sharky and baby turtle was quite fun.
I was also impressed with Pippa's ability to hand feed the baby thrushes. It is a very time consuming endeavor once you figure out what they need to eat.

Just a quickie before I go off on holiday. I am used to handling worms with my job...i had to feed them to the toads. But as the weather was so dry here i did have a problem getting any in the garden as they had burrowed down so deep. So a friend got me some special worms from a fishing tackle shop, and this was easier for me for a while.
Anyway, the thrushes are looking more like adults now that they have a bit of a tail, and proper feathers, and the Scottish society for prevention of cruelty to animals have taken them today to their new aviary up North of here, where they will be eventually released into the wild. I am so happy for them.

Thrushes and a funny e-mail i received today

I have just sent a photograph of the thrushes to Shirley of them having a conversation with me about the availablility of worms etc.....
And here is something i was sent today which has a slight variation on the usual. I found it funny, and I hope you will have a sense of humour when you read it! It was sent to me from a friend at work....


Some of you have probably already read this before.

Grant me the sincerity to accept things I cannot change,
The courage to change things I cannot accept,
And the wisdom to hide the bodies of those I had to kill today
Because they got on my nerves.

And also, help me to be careful of the toes I step on today,
As they may be connected to the feet I may have to kiss tomorrow.

Help me always give 100% at work
12% on Monday
23% on Tuesday
40% on Wednesday
20% on Thursday
and 5% on Friday

And help me remember ......When I'm having a bad day,
And it seems that people are trying to wind me up ...
It takes 42 muscles to frown,
28 to smile, and only 4 to extend my arm and smack someone in the mouth!

Pippa's baby thrush picture has been put in the "Just For Fun" photo album. It is picture #12 in that album. Just go to the link at the top of the bulletin board page and click on "Photo Albums". That will open up a page with all the albums listed. Just click on "Just For Fun" and use the password "beb" when asked for it.
