Blackbird’s tweet

Blackbird’s tweet

Listening to the birdsong outside my backdoor.. in the eventide hours is a sound that I adore
Tweedling..twittering...chirrup & chips... quavering...calls of warbling pips

Oh how we take for granted Mother nature’s garden bird
Such melodious musical singing is heard, they say all the best things in life are free.. as I tune in on this bird’s evening chorus I totally agree

Perched on top of my rowan tree chirping with all it’s might is a joy for me... Blackbird with your beautiful tweet I thank you kindly for your singing so sweet

Thank you Jillian!! 
I actually had a brain transfusion from a chicken when I was young, so you are correct. I was meddling with some Brain Remover powder that my dad kept in the kitchen, and accidentally spilled it upon my noggin. Fortunately, some chickens surrounded me and one of them volunteered to infuse their brain into my skull. The procedure went swimmingly, and I had a new brain(a bird brain, if you will). I'll never forget that wonderful chicken for that...his name was...I can't remember now, but he was white...I think. Anyway, that's my story, so thank you!

Thanks Jillandjack, 
I think imagery is very important when relaying tales of chicken brains during the warm summer months. Some people who have chicken cerebellums merely recount things in a bland fashion, but I believe it's important to have a bird's inner head stuff, and will embellish it's coming into being every chance I get. 
Thank you for noticing!!! 

Matthew.
