CSI sidewalk

In terror they watched as, one by one, their brothers/sisters were taken from them.  Repeated exposure to this does something to a psyche.  Soon, they could think of nothing else but revenge.

They planned and plotted and schemed.  They made outlines and drawings and revisions to outlines and drawings and finally hatched something that just might work... if the stars aligned.

They began collecting.  Collecting the materials they would need.  They waited in hiding as their unknowing accomplices - the landscaping crews - shed the necessary ingredients. And eventually their meticulous planning and work paid off. 

They'd made a bomb.

The bomb became like an idol of worship to them.  It was their way to salvation.  It must hit its mark because, once spent, it was gone forever.  But the years of oppression had brought them to this state.  The state of evil genius. 

And it worked.

I came upon this morbid scene while out taking China for her daily beauty walk.  It's the body of a bluebird - male I think - wedged in a fence.  I'm pretty sure it's  DEAD

"What could have done this?", I wondered.  How does a bluebird body end up wedged in between two fence boards. 

Revenge of the Worms.  Gotta be.


  1. Sounds like the making of a Steven Spielberg movie, or an Agatha Christie book.
    Very mysterious indeed....

  2. Queue up the suspenseful music and that pensive David Caruso stare. Now that Abby is on the case, I am sure the mystery will be solve and the guilty party/parties will be brought to justice.

  3. That is VERY strange! This is going to make me very wary of worms from now on!

  4. I think you and China are on to something and worthy of positions with the CSI staff.

    Let us know how long "the body" stays there.

    I'm reminded of a book I read a few years ago called "Stiff - the Curious Lives of Human Cadavers." I decided not to suggest it as the book club selection.

  5. Oh that is weird. I once showed a dead bird hanging from a wire in our back garden on my blog. I have no idea how it ended up like that but it wasn't nice. I got my older daughter to get it down! :D
