Do you see the color of that sky? What a dreary day that was. K. and I got home from shopping, pulled the car into the barn and headed to the house. There was a terrible racket coming from around the corner of the barn and as we came around the corner, we saw birds.
Lots of birds.
Lots of big, black birds.
They kept swooping in from other yards, landing on a handful of trees in the woods right at the edge of our yard. These birds were squawking up a storm.
It was a little scary. Especially if you've seen the Alfred Hitchcock movie, "The Birds".
We looked at each other, said "The Birds" in a hushed tone and scared ourselves silly.
The thought of that movie was enough to send us running into the house to get the boys so they could come see this freaky event.
They thought it was pretty cool.
Boys. They really are from Mars.
