The Joy of Flying


Okay, Harold.  We made it to the clock, and yes! I see the time.  It’s not my fault we’re late.

Oh, come on, Joyce!  You are always making us late.  How far have we traveled today…and how many times have we waited for you?

Harold, if you keep this up, I will not allow you to dive into a plate of crostino in a wine garlic…

Hey, you two!  We have had enough of this!  If we had known how you bicker non-stop, we would not have invited you on this trip!

Sorry, Leticia!  Harold is so erratic; I can never take him anywhere.  On the flight over, he made me drop my shrimp

Okay, ladies!  Here we are!  See the 3:25 tour bus!  I get the fat bald guy; Joyce, you take out the big redhead.  Leticia, you hit the skinny guy with the comb-over. 

Annnnd, it is time to show humans just who is in charge. Let 'em drop!

This is photo prompt in 2014. Seagulls fly into our south California at winter and hang out. In the warmer time, the crows take over. 

Lunch yard where my students had lunch ignored them after a while

    1. I loved this prompt! Having seen structures like this with the seagulls circling over my food, I always wonder what they might be thinking.

  2. Ah, there's plenty going on in their heads, they are not bird-brains no matter what people think.

  4. It is many people’s fantasy to fly like a bird. It is also a fantasy to be able to leave little gifts on people the way that birds are able to do.

    1. "soul wise" is a perfect way to describe spring.

  6. Ha ha, a nice distraction! We had a lake visit when the kids weren't adults where we had fun tossing the gulls Cheetos. We collected a bunch of little shells and I made a picture of the event from them.

  7. Good one! I remember being in the gulf in Florida and looking up as a Pelican flew above me. I was very lucky that I did not have my mouth open. He got me good.

  8. I get a kick out of the 'turn of your mind' as my mama would say in that Georgia accent. I know, some people would think you are crazy, but me?....... well who knows? The shadow do! BTW. I thought they looked for car windshields!
    Love ya girl, this staying in is getting to you.

  9. Wonderful prompt and the way you addressed it. This reminds me of being on the beaches in CA, where the sea gulls were plentiful. No such birds inland.

  10. Giggling! I'll never again regard seagulls in the same way. (Or for that matter, any other denizens of the air!)

  14. LOL, reminds me of a day when I was standing under a tree and went to take my coat off, the bacd of it was bombed all over. They hit their target and I didn't even know it. :)
