I had a strange thing happen to me last night!

Well last night I had something happen to me that has never happened before. It was around 11:30 p.m. and DH hadn't come home from work yet. I decided I would turn all the window candles off. I got all the window candles turned off and I opened the front door to turn the 2 topiaries on the front porch and the Moravian Star off. A carolina wren decided to sleep in my wreath on the front door. Well I opened the door and left it open while I went to the outlet to unplug the chord. The little carolina wren woke up and flew in the house! Well Teddy decided I'm going to retriever because I'm a Golden Retriever!! He crashed into the Christmas tree (surprisingly only 1 ornament broke), he crashed into the fireplace, couch, palm tree in the sunroom and the chairs in the dining room almost got turned over! The little wren kept flying into the 10' Christmas tree-hiding from Teddy I'm sure. The little wren then flew upstairs into the office and then I was able to get it to fly into the back bedroom. I thought if I could just get it in there I would open the window and the little wren could fly out. DH came home (mind you I had been battling this situation for an hour!). He open the window and the little bird was coaxed with a lambswool duster out the window into the night. What an adventure!! Teddy was really looked forward to a little bird dinner and I'm glad he didn't get it! What an adventure!

Oh Sherri! What a story : ) I'm glad your husband was able to get the window open. Imagine how frightened that little bird was!

Oh my goodness! That's never happened to me either. What chaos you had for a while. Sounds like it could be in a movie script. I'm sorry but it would probably have to be a comedy.

Oh what a palava, but as Kay said, probably comedic too, though not at the time!

I was telling John I should write a story about my little wren episode. I can just see Teddy dashing through the house in the book. Maybe I will! I keep saying I'm going to write a book and everytime I start I get lost in my everyday life. Maybe I could have my Mom do the watercolor pictures-Mother Daugher book!

Definite holiday comedy movie fodder! Write the script and send it in. = )

Oh my goodness! What an adventure! Such a pretty bird. I bet he liked being warm for a little while, then he was scared to pieces!! Life is full of surprises.;) Lori

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
