Yesterday started out frosty, -2 degrees in fact. Usually means a nice day will eventuate, and it did. Late in the morning I reckoned I had about an hour before hitting off the first tee. The sun was streaming in onto the front deck, so I figured a cuppa and a read of the paper, even though it was 2 days old, would just be fine. Here’s how I reckon it went….
Me, to self – “This is going to be nice.”
Rainbow 1 – “Look, there he is. You scream from your tree, and I’ll do the same from here, and he might put some seed in the tray.”
Rainbow 2 – “That sounds like a good idea, are you ready? Go!”
Rainbows 1 & 2 together – “SCREEEECH, CHATTER-CHATTER-CHATTER, SQUAWK, SQUEAL, SCREEEECH!”
Me, to self (barely) – “Alright, ALRIGHT, I’ll get you some seed”.
Rainbow 1 – “See, works every time. Now, just pose for a bit while he gets a picture, and then we can have a good feed and get out of here.”
Speaking of rainbows, we’ve had one or two lately, not accompanied by much rain though unfortunately.
