ALARM CLOCKS

 

 

 

NOW THAT ITíS SPRING TIME, EVERY MORNING AT DAYLIGHT TWO FEATHERED ALARM CLOCKS WAKE ME. THE FIRST LIGHT OF DAY IS WAY EARLIER THEN I WANT TO BE AWAKENED FROM A SOUND SLEEP.

YOU SEE ITíS LIKE THIS, TWO MOCKING BIRDS NEST IN MY BACK YARD. WHEN IT STARTS GETTING LIGHT EACH MORNING ONE OF THEM WILL START SINGING. THIS MAKES THE OTHER ONE START SINGING BUT SHE SINGS LOUDER THAN THE FIRST ONE.

NOW THE FIRST ONE IS NOT ABOUT TO BE OUT DONE BY HER RIVAL SO SHE SINGS EVEN LOUDER AND LONGER. WELL YOU GET THE PICTURE. MY BEDROOM IS ON THE BACK OF THE HOUSE AND THE TREES THESE TWO MOCKING BIRDS NEST IN ARE TWO PECAN TREES, ONE ON EACH SIDE OF MY BACK YARD.

IN TEXAS THE MOCKING BIRD IS THE STATE BIRD AND THEY ARE PROTECTED. NOT TO MENTION THE FACT THAT IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO SHOOT A GUN IN THE CITY LIMITS OF ARLINGTON WHERE I LIVE.

BESIDES THAT, JOHNNIE HAS A BIG BIRD BATH AND TWO BIRD FEEDERS IN THE BACK YARD. SHE LIKES HAVING THE BIRDS AROUND. BUT SHE SLEEPS IN THE FRONT BEDROOM AND THE MOCKING BIRDS DONíT WAKE HER UP EVERY MORNING.

EVEN LITTLE FOX WANTS THE MOCKING BIRDS GONE. EVERY TIME SHE GOES OUT INTO THE BACK YARD BOTH MOCKING BIRDS DIVE BOMB HER AND SHE COME YELPING BACK TO THE PATIO DOOR. IF WE DONíT LET HER IN RIGHT AWAY SHE STARTS BARKING UNTIL ONE OF US OPENS THE DOOR FOR HER.

THESE MOCKING BIRDS WILL STAY ALL SUMMER AND EACH ONE WILL RAISE THREE OR FOUR HATCHING OF BABIES. SO THE VOLUME OF THE ALARM CLOCKS WILL KEEP GOING UP WITH THE NUMBER OF BIRDS IN THE PECAN TREES.

IT TOOK SOME TIME BUT I FINALLY FOUND A SOLUTION TO MY PROBLEM. IíM NOT GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT IT WAS BECAUSE THATíS A WHOLE NOTHER STORY FOR A DIFFERENT TIME BUT I WILL TELL YOU A CAT HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE SOLUTION.
