It's a bird, it's not a plane and it IS superman!

I'm a smart girl and yet sometimes I do dumb things.  Like this morning for example when I spotted a bird on the screened porch at the office.  I went out to let the little scared thing out by opening the screened door.  I moved very slowly because I was trying super hard to not scare the bird.  I edged the door open ever so slowly and proped it open and then turned around to look for the bird.  Oooops, I left the door to the office open and of course the bird is now IN the office.

You are laughing aren't you?

So I go in and in the reception room the little bird is sitting on the sofa.  Oh boy.  I open the front door and the poor little bird flies down the hall.  I slowly creep down the hall closing doors as I go and finally he goes into one of the offices.  I close all the doors except that one and go into that room.  He takes off and flies down the hall.  I'm hoping out the door, but he was fast and I didn't see where he went.  I'm creeping around looking for him when he flies off the top of a photo frame and hits me in the head.  I scream.  Bird is terrified and at the end of the hall way perched on the top of a lamp shade. 

I gave up.  Thankfully it's a Donald off day.  I called him and told him I tried to be a big girl and do it myself, but I just can't get the little bird out.  So he comes to my rescue (again) and in about 2 seconds he gets the little bird to fly right out the door.  So the next time a bird gets on the screened porch maybe I'll be smart enough to close the door to the kitchen so the bird can't go inside.

Now I'll get back to real estate.  Thanks Donald.  I love you.

You gave it the good ole college try ;)  I actually don't like birds and would have had a hard time trying to do what you did. (A little fear of them)

Now THAT is something I would have paid admission to see, especially the part where you scream. So much for trying to not frighten the bird :)

Shannon- recently I got a lizard out (I'm very afraid of them) and was so proud of myself.  But I just hid in my office when Donald got here today

Dorie- The best story is the mouse one when I wouldn't let my cats near it.

Cynthia- I know right.  I would have NEVER looked perched on a frame on the wall for that bird.  I didn't mean to scream, but out it came.  Pretty sure I ran away too.

Diane- yeah, me too.

Bliz- laughing with me I see

Jason- oh no, not a chance

Mark- I don't know, I needed more coffee before that happened.

Donald was your superman!  Did the bird make any "messes" while flying around?

Tony- I'm sure you are right

Ron- we've had  steady rain, a few rumbles of thunder, and I fee sure we will get more rain out of it over the next few days, but hopefully nothing serious here.  Of course my prayers are with those getting flooding type rains and storm surge.

Kerrie- no mam, no messes.   Thank goodness because I'm not sure Donald would have taken care of that for me.

Tammy - It's great to have Super Donald!   I've done a similar thing.  Had a bird get down my chimney. I've got glass doors on the front of the FP and it was beating himself to death.  I opened the glass doors and had the bird in my house.  It took me forevver to get Mr. Birdie out of the house.....

Good morning Tammy. I admit I did laugh but had it been me I wouldn't have laughed at all. Your Donald came through. Enjoy the day.

Sheila- I didn't laugh until it was over.
