Hollerites~

We have the best neighbors at The Holler,

the kind with feathers.

They are the most populous of all The Hollerites,

and they make the most congenial neighbors.

At the first sign of conflict,

they just fly away,

and land somewhere quieter.

I try and emulate them,

leaving crowds behind,

and seeking my own quiet spaces.

The only problem is I can’t fly! 

Cheers to you from the feathered Hollerites~

(Note: I did this post with the new Gutenberg editor which was kind of fun. Can you detect any differences?)

Stork Fishing & Hippo Surfing African Style~

The Yellow Billed Stork dined on catfish tonite.

The poor catfish was given no say in the matter.

The stork’s eyes seemed bigger than his beak,

and the meal was almost more than he could swallow.

The Purple Herons,

were busy Hippo surfing.

But even they thought the stork caught more than he could swallow!
