Flying Around

The blue tit that almost got away, by Superfrenchie. When the snow is flying around outside, our thoughts take wings.

Lots of people have been watching the winged wonders of our planet. On different land masses, no less. They share their findings this week. Superfrenchie just managed to catch that blue tit as it flew out of frame. Others hid in the reeds, or tried to pretend they were other birds. But our avian detectives found them out.

Also, we have thoughts. Some of them, I have been advised, are not cheery thoughts. Some are gloomy, others are snarky. Take them as you find them. I will not promise you mindless optimism, but I will promise you food for thought in these pages.

Here's a rundown of some of the things you'll find this week:

    A weird notice that says, Dead Men Tell No Tales.
  • Stories, spooky and otherwise. There's even a gloomy country song and a bit of political nonsense ripped from the headlines and ripped off the Bard of Avon. Enjoy if you can. Complain if you must.
  • The usual humour, graphic stories, and features.
  • English birds and French birds, properly labelled, and a bird from Willem and a conspicuous lack of birds from Russia. Over in America, I watch something else fly.
  • A meme, because.
  • The usual weirdness.

We'll be back next week with more Stuff. (Send more Stuff!) Keep warm, stay safe, and remember: not everyone sees the same view you do. That's why we appreciate photos!
