Squawk… squawk…squawk…

6/11/10
So my fine feathered friends—what shall we sing about?
Let’s sing a lovely little ditty about Valdosta, back in 1966. Let’s sing about a broken chandelier and the little blonde-headed girl, under 9 years of age who fell into a ravine and got trapped. Let’s sing about her mother… or the man who drives the fire truck… or the man with the small fishing boat who liked to fish alone out by the VPD lake house. Or how about, let’s sing about the man from Tifton. You know… the man who liked the softer side of Sears, all things “insurance” and loved to make documentary films.

Or how about my personal favorite… the man with the crooked teeth who could swear upon the bible that he will always tell you the truth and not bat an eye—but can’t quite seem to do it over Charley’s dead body. The man Charley likes to refer to as, “The Grim Reaper”.

I have information for you my friend. Live birds aren’t the only birds that sing- dead birds sing too! Lots and lots of beautiful songs and you cannot even begin to imagine the lyrics!!! But even more amazing… you cannot even begin to count the people who are now carefully listening to that bird sing on tape for even as I speak to you today.
Oh… what kind of bird you ask?
Why that’s simple… that would be a most awkward beast; the OSTRICH.
Crazy isn’t it? And I thought they could only run and hide! Apparently they sing too! I didn’t know they could sing when I began this, but boy oh boy! If you listen closely, you can hear him sing ever so softly… just above his grave. It’s not very pretty—but he sure has an awful lot to squawk about!
People are listening… people are watching… very closely. Lots of people- the kind that like to put lots of letters behind their names!
Enjoy…
