Say Hello To My Little Friend

When Pacino burst into the room brandishing his machine gun and shouting "Say hello to my little friend" I fell even more in love with him. That scene remains my fantasy of how to handle all the asshats and douches in my world.

On a far more peaceful level ...



This is my little friend Raoul. He walks up and down the driveway or back and forth along the curb stone whenever I bring out the trash or stumble over to get the mail. Everyone laughs and tells me it could not possibly be the same bird. No one believes but my granddaughter Hope. Hope believes me.

If I hurry into the side door Raoul will peek at me for a moment and then take off to join his family in the tree down the road.

I believe you, Dianne.
Birds are individuals, and no two will have precisely the same behaviors unless they are instinctive ones, for the care and feeding of the species.
Raoul seems to have taken a liking to you (or perhaps you and Hope) and has developed his own behaviors as a result.
Hugs to you and Hope, and hi to Raoul.

He is certainly your little friend and he looks for you as much as you look for him.

I read this wonderful book called "The Bluebird Effect: Uncommon Bonds with Common Birds." You would be reassured that you and Raoul have an uncommon bond. :-)

Same behavior, same bird.

Hope believes you, and I believe you and others, too. Raoul is your bird friend. It's the truth.

Nice photo.

Oh, don't ya just LOVE Pacino in that movie? Yet, I also loved him in the Godfather (the first one especially).

Stunning capture of your friend Raoul, Dianne! Love his coloring. He looks like he's wearing a black tuxedo with a red vest!!!

And yes, of course he's the same bird. He's there as your little 'watch bird' making sure you're alright.

(((((((( You )))))))

X and hugs to you, Hope, Siren and Isadora!

I was gonna say you photoshopped but I looked at the orinthology website and did you know robins are paler when you go west? Yep.

Hilary said...

Of course he's the same bird. Most would not exhibit the same habit. Of course, most would not know you. :)
