Here’s a collection of odds and ends (odd ends?) with dialogue by Yours Truly.

And then I said to him ...

 Mine!  No, mine!

 I told you not to interrupt when I’m squawking!

Okay, kids.  Smile!

 I don’t care what you think.  I’ll do it my way!

 Whoop! ap! yip! Look OUT!

Yup, I’m a parakeet.  Cute, ain’t I!

 Wheee!  I love swimmin’!

A Gentoo penguin swims in a pool at the Melborne Aquarium.  They are the fastest underwater 
swimming penguins, able to reach speeds of 36 km/hr. (24 mph).

 Wild turkeys.  Scatter, fellas before Thanksgiving comes around again!

Fun -

The Picnic -
 A Jewish Rabbi and a Catholic Priest met at the town's annual 4th of July picnic.  Old friends, they began their usual banter.

"This baked ham is really delicious," the priest teased the rabbi. "You really ought to try it. I know it's against your religion, but I can't understand why such a wonderful food should be forbidden! You don't know what you're missing. You just haven't lived until you've tried Mrs. Hall's prized Virginia Baked Ham. Tell me, Rabbi, when are you going to break down and try it?"

The rabbi looked at the priest with a big grin, and said, "At your wedding."


  1. That third one is a non-native house sparrow about to put its beak through the head of a female finch. House sparrows are murderous little thugs who kill nesting eggs and parents anywhere within their vicinity, pushing quite a few species like the purple martins towards extinction.

    I switched to sunflower seeds only because the house sparrows don't like them.

  2. I like all these pictures, especially their dialogue...

  3. I think the first one is saying it's almost Groundhog Day!
