Pet Peeve of the Week


I've got a good one this week. I wasn't sure I was going to, but it kind of got under my skin yesterday. I'm addressing this to The Splashers out there, you know who you are. I understand your reasons for not sitting down on the seat, and why you choose to perch precariously while holding your clothes out of the line of fire. But my goodness what a mess you leave behind! Would you please, please swipe a bit of paper for the ones who come after you? Because frankly, it's disgusting. Don't get me started on the non-hand washers.

Now that I've got that off my chest I can tell you about the crow-fest we have every morning around 6:30. How many make a murder?

I don't know but I do know that these porkers can sit on a twig and not even bend it. That amazes me, it seems to defy physics. With so darned many in my yard, I had to see what Ted Andrews has to say about the crow's presence in my life. "Unexpected help with problems and obstacles is at hand to bring relief. Your magic is calling and it will be answered". That makes me liken them to Ganesha but somehow I can't see an elephant sitting on a tree top with the same finesse.

Oh you lucky thing to get the video thingie working. I must try again. Love the crows and if I can get it together I'll try and get a short film of the blackbird that wakes us up here every morning about 7am. It has a morning song that is nothing like it's evensong and I wouldn't have known what it was if I hadn't gone and looked out of the window.
Ps agree about the Splashers1 K x

Totally agree with your peeve. People are just gross sometimes.
I know crows as messengers from the Universe. Lots of crows, lots of messages? Or just one big one? My neighbor across the street has a murder in her front yard yesterday. Of crows, not a driveby or anything. She must be getting some messages too.
Hugs, Kimmy-poo!

I'll admit to wanting to murder crows (Oh? That wasn't what you meant?) They show up every day to steal food from our chickens. But I'd much rather murder the "wild" turkeys that show up in a herd, scratch the ground bare, and denude the fruit trees overnight. The songbirds I love... but birds shouldn't be quite so raptor-like!
