Billy & Betty Buzzard


This is a new home in a subdivision where I walk. The area is large and wooded but only 7 houses have been built and of those only 3 have been sold and have people living in them. I always see a lot of buzzards in this area and lately I've noticed them sitting on the roof of this vacant house.

This is Billy Buzzard and here is the story he told me one day when I was there taking pictures. Believe it or not!
"I was a single guy, a little shy but not bad looking and I was lonesome. I started cruising around looking for women. I heard about this place they called "The Roof" so I decided to check it out.
I strutted around a little and showed my stuff and soon I had the attention of this cutie named Betty.
She seemed a little shy at first but soon we were chatting and getting along really well.
We had a few dates and flew around together for a while.
In no time she had me hook, line, and sinker. Old Billy Buzzard was IN LOVE!
We settled down together and right away she changed into an entirely different person. She either ignored me or....
it was NAG NAG NAG.
My friends made fun of me and said I was "buzzard pecked".

One day I had enough and I just up and left that Betty Buzzard.

Now I'm foot loose and fancy free again and LOVING IT!"

I loved that story Dot, and I believe every word of it too!
THAT happens all too often in this world of ours, so how can you NOT believe it!

....But sometimes it might be a case of the Old Bird getting his feathers ruffled all too easily, rather than being Buzzard Pecked! haha

Cute story to put a smile on my face today! We have big crows in our yard each day nibbling the corn we put out for the deer...

I am Catching up on some missed posts today:
The Saint and I love to check out different BBQ places so we may have to take an expedition to Jessup, GA some time. I must find it on the map first as we dont explore much further west then Atlanta. lol

Your New Years meal looked yummy but you can keep the greens. tee hee, We settled for Ham, Black-eyed peas and cornbread dressing and cornbread! Cant have enough of that Martha White ya know :-)

They have been making the Smart Cars in Germany for many years, We left there to relocate to GA in the year 2000 and the Smart Cars were already there before we left...

We have those cute anole lizards all over our yard. They enjoy hanging out on our brick wall to bask in the sun shine. They are all sleeping now. One fell through the flu pipe of our fireplace a few days ago. Good thing the cats were upstairs sleeping.

James Brown is our areas (Augusta) famous singer in the Hall of Fame. He had his troubled past and family still fighting over his will after 2 years of passing but he did make his mark in the music world...

The Hornets nest was a neat find! I would be afraid there may be a stray or two around so scared to try and pluck it. :-)

Dot: I loved your story and loved your photos even more. I have never seen a buzzard on a roof around here. I wish I would. They did some great poses for you and those flying shots are super.

happyone said...

Loved the buzzard story!!

PERBS said...

I, too, think it would make a great picture book for young children. I think you ought to look into publishing it. Great photo connection and words. I'm not usually interested in LOVE stories but this is a good one for kids!

Craver Vii said...

You're so funny! Great pics, Dot! Buzzards look mis-matched, don't they? I mean, they have a gorgeous wing profile, but their heads... ugh!

Judy said...

Cute post Dot. I have never seen a Buzzard in our area. I have seen a few out in Oklahoma.

starnitesky said...

Lilli & Nevada said...
