A stern word

on November 15, 2012

King: I have had a stern word with the boys and they have promised not to go over to the neighbours’ house again.
Me:Thanks, King.

Queenie: I have had a meeting with the girls this morning and told them that they must stay here.
Me: Thanks, Queenie.

Prince: Julie, we never go over to the neighbours’ place. It’s just those stupid blue peas that do that.

Princess 1: Yes, be assured, Julie – Princess 2 and I never leave here.

Peacock teen 1: I was just trying to get a bit of privacy with my girlfriend. How was I supposed to know I wasn’t allowed to go over the road?
Peacock teen 2: You’re not talking about Penny I hope.
Peacock teen 1: Yes, isn’t she gorgeous!
Peacock teen 2: Penny is my girlfriend, you idiot.
Peacock teen 1: Oh, sorry, they all look the same!

    I’m looking and looking at that last photo – what are the white thingies off in the distance? If it were here, I’d think they were beehives. But they’re “there”, so I don’t have a clue!

    Julie, in California, in Baldwin Park, there are peacocks everywhere. They have naturalized into the neighborhood from the LA County Arboretum. Many years back “Lucky” Baldwin owned the estate there and had many peacocks and parrots, etc. They know no bounds…

    Seems that the people living in the locality of the Arboretum either love them or hate them. Those who hate them, can’t do anything about them, because they are protected.

    I ask you, “How can you hate a bird that is so lovely as these?
