I was out for a run this morning in a wooded area and I heard that distinctive sound of a car alarm being engaged. The confusing thing was…there were no cars anywhere. Talk about a weird feeling there for a few minutes - “Twilight Zone” time. Then I heard it again and noticed it was sort of coming from the region around a certain tree. I walked up to the tree and looked up and sure enough it was a mocking bird. No he wasn’t getting out of a small automobile, he was making the sound vocally. It was rather sureal.
I’m sure there’s a lesson here somewhere, but me being me; I just haven’t grasped it yet.
