Baby Bird in Dog Pen

Taylor:  Hey, how did the baby bird get in our dog pen?

Rusty:   I've been wondering the same thing.  Last week Jan let Marcus outside, saw the bird and decided Marcus needed to come back inside right away.

Marcus:  Yes, I was walking down the steps and Jan suddenly said, "Marcus - she calls me Marcus -

Taylor:  Of course she does.  That's your name.

Marcus:  She said, :"Marcus, let's go back in the house."

     "But I have to pee," I said. 


     So I dutifully went back in the house and sat for hours with my legs crossed

Taylor:  It was only for a short time, Marcus.  Jan went outside to take some pictures.

Baby bird:  Mama, where are you?  How did I get here?  Where am I?  Who is this crazy person following me around telling me to smile for the camera?

Taylor:  Baby looked dazed and lost.  Did he fall out of a nest in our tree or did his mama kick him out and tell him not to come back until he graduated flight school?

Rusty:  I begged to go outside to help him, but Jan hooked the screen door to lock me inside.

Marcus:  He wandered around the pen, hopped a little, flapped his wings here and there, and looked around a lot.  At first I thought he'd dropped his nest keys, but then I realized he was lost.   If I didn't have to keep my legs crossed, I could have taken him a map.

Taylor:  What happened to him?  Did his mom ever show up?

Rusty:  Not that I know of.  He slowly made his way across the pen, stopping here and there to practice lift off, flapped through the chain link, landed and disappeared around the neighbor's tree.

Marcus:  And finally I was allowed outside to pee!

Taylor:  I hope Baby is okay.  Perhaps he'll come back and visit us again.

Marcus:  I hope so.  I'd like to invite him to lunch.

  2. You guys were very supportive.

  3. OMD Marcus... do you suppose he is one of the PIPE Birds? OR Pawhaps he has heard that You Speak GOOSE and thought you might speak Baby Bird, Too. Hope that he is now Safe and Pooping of someBuddy's Car some where. That seems to make birds Very much happy.

  12. What a good, good doggie. Keeping your legs crossed. Not many doggies are able to do that but you had it in you. OR rather, you were KEEPING it in you.
    Good dog, good dog.
    Lunch, indeed. You are too much, Marcus. And what would you prepare...?

  13. Very nice of you to hold your pee so the baby bird could make his way out of your pen and hopefully back to his mom!

  14. Hopefully that little birdie found his way back to where he didn't remember!

  15. I hope the baby bird is OK, I am glad he could fly well enough to get in the tree.

  16. YOU'D LIKE TO INVITE HIM TO LUNCH???????????? Crikey ..... I knew I liked you, Marcus. That's what birds are for, aye??

  17. We had some baby birds on our front porch a couple of weeks ago.

  18. Wow! You have baby birds all around. That must mean they feel very secure with the Funny Farmers guarding their nests. ♥
