Earlier I wrote something else and the day before too. Both entries were so complaining and depressing, too depressing and complaining to leave there. I took those entries away. But, please forgive me for being so complaining and depressing. (I hope you will:)
I don’t expect too much of a pass, but I’m really sorry for being such a self-centered bummer way too often. You’ve been so patient! *Thank you.*
Here’s something hopefully more cheery, with a smile:)
For some reason later I thought of a day this summer, over at the parking lot near Goodwill and Dollar Store and down the road a bit here in Cleveland, Tennessee. That day I never expected to see a Scarlet Macaw in the parking lot. It was a woman’s pet bird. She was looking for directions on her way to Michigan to see her grown children. The bird almost got out of her car at a stop light. But she finally got the bird back in the car by holding out some kind of perch for the bird. They were on their way.
Here’s something else fun and wonderful. It’s the first line of Bruce Barcot’s book called “The Last Flight of the Scarlet Macaw: One Woman’s Fight to Save the World’s Most Beautiful Bird.” The line is: “The scarlet macaw looks like a creature dreamed up by Dr. Seuss.”
At Switchzoo.com, it says the Scarlet Macaw is one of 17 species of the Macaw, one of the largest neo-tropical birds. The Macaw, it was explained, has wide strong wings and can fly up to 35 miles per hour. “It’s one of the most beautiful members of the parrot family,” the website says.
Yes, that scarlet color is one of the most beautiful colors I’ve ever seen, possibly the most beautiful bird. But there are so many beautiful birds. Enjoy!
