Terrible Twos

It's my blog birthday!! Two years ago I started this 'masterpiece' and what a wild ride it's been! I'm not sure how much longer I'll keep blogging, time spent on the computer seems to constantly become less and less important, but for now..........

I've been waiting and fearing this day for exactly 11 months now. Here's how it happened.....I had my usual 5:23 wake up alarm and as I was lulling myself awake heard my next door neighbor out watering his flowers call out to another neighbor who walks his dog about that time every morning. Normal so far....I took my shower, got out and was walking around the quiet house trying to figure out which couch Pippin had slept on so I could give him his good morning kiss. And that's when I heard it "uuuuuggggghhhh........uuugggghhhhh". It sounded like some wounded animal outside our house somewhere! I made my way to the front room where it sounded like it was coming from and opened the shutters. I didn't see anything....I checked the other window and looked out the front window and it just kept on whining. So, I woke Brent up so I could send him outside to investigate. He geared up with a big flashlight to whack whatever it was (in case it was a skunk with rabies or something) and headed out. He checked under the house in case something had gotten trapped, walked all around, and didn't see a thing. Pippin and I watched from inside and I pointed to the roof, just in case. He looked up, laughed and then motioned for me to come out. I came out and looked up. And there they were: two pigeons. The bottom of the bird chain. I've seen them around our neighborhood on other people's houses, even on the street behind us, but never on our block and dear god never on our house. But there they were, walking around, making strange noises, and most likely pooping. I HATE pigeons. They're gross and nasty and pretty much the only bird that won't get out of your way. So, I started freaking out. "OH MY GOD THE PIGEONS ARE ON OUR ROOF!!! OH NO!!!!" and Brent just found that humorous and replied "NOT THE PIGEONS!! That is SO much worse than having a skunk with rabies dying in our yard." Well, I mean, in perspective........I just....don't like pigeons. At any rate my freak-out scared them off - for now. I just hope we don't have to resort to this again....

Happy weekend everyone!! Good luck to any and all who are racing!

Congrats on 2 years!

As I was reading your post I thought to myself, I hope that they don't have to resort to what happened last time--and then you wrote the same thing.

Pigeons and small children-they both can be annoying and I don't want them on my roof.

First - Happy Blogivesary!

Second - You are so funny about the birds. I totally knew that the same fate may (or may not) await your newest nemesis.

Congrats on your two year blogiversary. I hope there are many more to come. I think many of us have scaled back, but I enjoy catching up with everyone and I hope you continue to as well.

Pigeons wander around on our neighoburs roof too. They make a lot of noise in the morning. Dumb birds.
