Weird bird..

Birds are flyin' south for winter.
Here's the Weird-Bird headin' north,
Wings a-flappin', beak a-chatterin',
Cold head bobbin' back 'n' forth.
He says, "It's not that I like ice
Or freezin' winds and snowy ground.
It's just sometimes it's kind of nice
To be the only bird in town."

Shel Silverstein

Oh I love Mr. Silverstein! He is one of our favorites out here in the states!

Now, what I find weird is that you never received my gift....I am so sorry that it may have gotten lost. Tea Rat is very, very disappointed....Nita
