Thank you my dear sweet D. I love that we have vultures nesting in town. I was watching some (don't know the compound pronoun for vultures) yesterday, having a social on a rooftop. So impressively large, and elegant. xomo

What buzzwords, I mean buzzards...What do I mean, anyway... Maureen, I have dedicated something to you. It is titled, Relief is just a word away, and it is a May 9 effort. Be warned. It will take you a while to read it. Get your reading glasses out, ok. Best always, Gershon

I was sitting in my yard watching vultures, noticing the sparrows not bothered by their silhouette.

Oh yes. I have not as yet written a will. I have poemed it though, in 'For The Birds'.

Funny comment. I just commented on your comment of my poem "wake". That's how I'm going out. It's already written in my will.

Thank you so much Timothy! I love all birds, a special place in my heart for vultures, so called 'ugly' birds, but so important for the ecosystem. This an ode to these black beauties ;) xomo
