a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

A Rare Bird...

has been sited around the farm!  It is male and has been caught napping in the recliner and rummaging through the refrigerator. He has also been seen following the cattle, catching fish and tearing up equipment lately.

He mates for life and June third makes thirty-nine years. He's still hanging around the nest. The female is quite a frumphy old thing and tends to hang with the horses and dogs at the farm. The pair have been observed picking on each other, with a touch of playfulness. 

It has been recorded, this pair has been together almost a half-century and have produced only two chicks, we do know they have mated at least twice.

This rare photo pictures them in the beginning....
Happy Anniversary, hubby, thanks for putting up with me.
I love you!
May we have a hundred more!

Aww so incredibly cute you both are. Two observations:

1. Notice that said rare female bird has mouth open as if trying to say something. Is this a "rare" occurrence during said union or common event?

2. Rare offspring of rare couples offspring (are you following me?)(the grandson) looks like rare male bird. I'm just saying it.

OK three observations:

3. You remind me of a young Lorretta Lynn.

Have the happiest anniversary yet, and I wish you many more!

When he starts throwing himself up against your kitchen window trying to get your attention, let me know.

Happy Anniversary to you both. That's a real cute photo of you two as a young happy couple.

As you know, it would have been my 39th anniversary too. What an awfully long time to have been married!

I wish I had made it, you are lucky that you did. I hope you have many more happy years together.

Congratulations and Happy Anniversary! It's rare these days to see couples married as long as you and your husband. Jerry and I have been married over 46 years now and I tell folks it's really a mindset...we just never thought there was an option. :) blessings, marlene

ain't for city gals said...

omgosh...funny! When I first started reading I was thinking "39 years...that is impossible for her to know it is the same bird"! Sometimes it takes a second cup of coffee for me! Looking forward to reading your past and future posts...
