Earth Day, Mocking Birds and George

I learned today that Mockingbird's are also called "Cat Bird's". AND they will attack a kitty without being provoked. One will fly down from the power lines, sit in front of kitty while another will try to peck her butt while she is distracted. Their calls also bring Blue Jay's & Cardinal's to see the comotion.
This is getting to be a nightly occurance when when the dog, kitty and I got for our sunset walk around the RV park.
I have a few Earth Day blinkies I I'd share. I th ink all of them were made by Shelly last year & this year.

The only things I did for Earth Day is tend to my herbs and trees by watering them. I had done the real work last week. Although, I would like to dig up an Azeala bush and plant it somewhere will it will get more Sun. and I have a couple of pineapple plants I'm sure will do better planted in sand rather than in pots.
This past week the rest of the Snowbird's have packed up and moved thier rigs out of the RV park. nice and quiet. I may even go down to the pool for a while today.

This was sent to me today. I got a laugh from it. I hope you do, too.
George Phillips , an elderly man, from Meridian, Mississippi, was going upto bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the gardenshed, which she could see from the bedroom window.
George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw thatthere were people in the shed stealing things...He phoned the police, who asked, "Is someone in your house?" He said "No,"but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me. Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock yourdoors and an officer will be along when one is available."George said, "Okay."
He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again."Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot them." and he hung up.
Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two FireTrucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips'residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.
One of the Policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shotthem!" George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"(True Story)
Don't mess with old people

Hi catbirds and Mockingbirds are two different types of birds. Yes mockingbirds will attack things in their territory!
I have to be to work at 6:45 am that is why we aren't out camping with them.
