Marcus Does A Mean CPR
Marcus: Before we begin today's post, here's a picture of me so you don't forget what I look like. If you'll notice, my eyes are open. Percy thought I would keep them closed until he calls me in October. (Temp Apt Fail 8) He didn't fool me a bit. He doesn't read a calendar any more than Jan does.
A couple of months ago, Jan and I set out on a walk. As we walked down the porch steps, a young mockingbird flew onto the nearby stop sign and another ran back and forth across the roof; both were chattering away. Now, I do speak fluent goose but I have to admit I have yet to learn mockingbird.
What, oh what was he (or she) upset about? Could it be an emergency and my astute medical skills were needed to save him? I perform a mean CPR!
Rusty: You certainly do perform a mean CPR! You could have broken every bone in Cyndi's body when you tried to practice on her.
Marcus: **waves paw** She survived, didn't she?
To get back to the subject of the mockingbird racing across the roof yelling, I looked around for a translator. Perhaps mama mockigbird was nearby. Oh, wait, she speaks mockingbird too and I don't.
I looked at Jan but she was just as puzzled as I was.
And then, beyond Jan, I saw the answer.
There was another young mockingbird hiding in the bushes behind us. She (or he) was actually well-camouflaged. Jan had to walk around the bush to get a decent shot of her. She must have been terrified of us. She never so much as twitched.
Rusty: She must have heard about your CPR technique.
Marcus: I'm sure she had. I'm becoming quite well-known in life-saving circles.
Rusty: If you try CPR on a bird, you'll become quite well-known in law enforcement circles.

Time to learn to speak mockingbird, Marcus!ReplyDelete
Oh, Marcus, you at too, too funny but I think I'm going to try to keep healthy if I am ever in your presence...no chattering either. But your heart is in the right place, that's for sure.ReplyDelete
Good one, Rusty. Marcus, your big paws cannot do CPR on a bird. Your just too big silly. We wish we could know what those birdies were trying to say to each other. Thanks for the share. Have a great weekend.ReplyDelete

Mama and Daddy Mockingbird were trying to distract you from the fledgling they were teaching to fly. They didn’t know you meant no harm, they know you don’t speak mockingbird.ReplyDelete
I keep singing the Mockingbird song now..ReplyDelete
Enjoyed your story very much.
Mockingbirds are so annoying, but I hope it is OK.ReplyDelete
Shall we call your doctor?ReplyDelete
Like Ida above, dad says reading this put the Mocking Bird song in dad's head and now he's sitting here singing it. Make it stop, please! Make...It...Stop!!ReplyDelete
HAH, I can comment as LOULOU!!! YAY.ReplyDelete
Hey Marcus, our mom bean says that sometimes they train police woofies to do CPR. Maybe you could get a job with them!ReplyDelete

If you learn to speak fluent mockingbird, I'm sure people would hire you to ask them to quit talking so loudly at night.Just an idea. ☺ReplyDelete

Marcus, your skills never cease to astound us. We hope that mockingbird is okay.ReplyDelete
I recall my first encounter with a mockingbird which to say the least was terrifying because I walked too close to where she was nesting and she chased me away. I had no clue why that crazy bird was attacking me until I told DH. Heck, I didn't even know what kind of bird it was and we live in Tennessee. The mockingbird is our state bird, too. What can I say? Oh right, I didn't learn Tennessee history since I was born and raised in West Virginia. :) Anyhow, thanks for stopping by my place on Friday and I apologize for the slow return visit but I finally made it! ;) Have a blessed and pAwesome week, my friend!
Woo performed CPR (Cat Purification Ritual). That must have been pawsome. Those cats need to be exercised some times.ReplyDelete
Glad woo are doing okay.

This is so cute! Marcus, it is good to know we have a CPR expert here in Blogville, too! That one mockingbird sure was well hidden! Hmmm...so what did the mockingbird say to the other?! 😉 And thank you for joining in our Flashback Friday! That was a fun post!ReplyDelete
Oh boy, getting too close to a mockingbird's baby can be dangerous! You're lucky she didn't peck your eyes out, LOL!ReplyDelete
