Harold’s Idea

It was a blustery Spring day yesterday when Harold landed on my doorstep.

You do remember Harold, don’t you?

I invited Harold inside for a hot cup of Mint Magic tea:


As Harold’s feathers started to warm-up, he started chirping, I mean, CHATTING almost non-stop!


Here is some of our conversation….

“You know summer is coming,” said Harold while tapping his beak impatiently on his teacup…”

“Why yes, Harold.”  I replied quietly.

“So I think it is time to roll out some fun!”  Replied Harold, waving his wings enthusiastically.

“How do you suggest I do this?”  I replied calmly.

“Well, I think you could start a Weird Bird Wednesday on your blog,” said Harold, spilling a little tea on his scarf in his excitement.

“Oh?”  I replied with caution.

“Why yes,” said Harold, “You could create one of your weird birds from dictionary.com – word of the day.  And maybe your readers will want to suggest a word now and then too!”

“That may work,” I replied as the imagination wheels started spinning in my head.

“And I will get the ball rolling by suggesting the first word for your weekly series,” said Harold with a smile on his beak.

(How could I turn down a smiling bird!)  “Okay, I will do it!” I said happily.  Harold stood and gave me a high-five with his wing.

“What word do you suggest for the first Weird Bird Wednesday?”  I asked.

“Ninnyhammer!”  Shouted Harold as he giggled and flew out my door…

Here is my Ninnyhammer bird (AKA – A Noodlehead):


Now you know how some of my creative ideas get started!  Harold and I hope you play along and suggest words for a future, Weird Bird Wednesday!

Happy Smiles!  :-)))
