“You can’t be suspicious of a tree, or accuse a bird or a squirrel of subversion or challenge the ideology of a violet.” — Hal Borland, journalist (1900-1978)

I do not really have any idea at all what that quote means, but I like it. And now, in the spirit of the Chicken Dance…

“I don’t want to be a chicken/
I don’t want to be a duck/
So I shake my butt/
quack quack quack quack”

(my kids’ favorite song. Repeat 10 or 20 times in a row.)

have a super-wonderful day.

    Fortunately, my kids haven’t heard that song. Yet. They do know “The Llama Song” though. Happy belated anniversary! Happy daughter’s birthday! Mwah!

    The chicken dance song reminded me of eggs and eggs reminded me of this quote my mum loves to say … even now that all 6 of us have flown the coop (weird how my brain works)
