Swans, Mr and Mrs

East Sussex Wildlife Rescue was called out to the Eastbourne Road to deal with an injured swan. Minutes later, they were called out to deal with the injured swan’s spouse. Nothing wrong with it, they just travel in pairs. Both are expected to be fine.

I like the colorful swan cozies.

It’s not at all uncommon here to see someone halt a car and get out to escort swans or other critters across the road. Animal mad, these people.

I had a lovely Easter weekend. Got lots of sleep, made my work deadline. Not really ready for that alarm to go tomorrow morning.

p.s. Pity nobody had Winnie Mandela in the Dead Pool. Nasty piece of work.

When I lived in NY, my house backed up to a preserve. Couple of BIG swans back there in the marsh. It’s a good thing they’re so pretty, otherwise their nasty tempers would never be tolerated. Big, foul tempered birds.

Well Armybrat, I bet ya didn’t mess with them too much then, didja? Swans know what New Yorkers are like. Just as we do down here in Florida…

That is cute but asking to be bit.

We got chewed one time by PETA for disturbing ducks with our cannon fire (don’t ask). What they didn’t see was the swan chasing them all out of the pond( the ducks, not PETA).
But it all worked out when someone explained that was an acronym for People Eating Tasty Animals.

Ah Winnie Mandela, famous for a line of designer necklaces.

I don’t suppose anyone had Steven Bochco, there is a life worth celebrating.

I was sorta hoping our SA(former) bosses would give us the day off in celebration, uh, mourning for the loss of dear dear Win.

But alas. You’d think they’d at least spring for an enchilda lunch over at Blue Goose, sheesh.
