My bird neighbor. Of course, if he were outside my bedroom window I wouldn't smile so much. Every day you can hear him calling "Marta. Marta. Marta." Among other things. He is quite the attraction in the neighborhood. I've been tempted to teach him to say "fook off"

It also annoyed me a bit but I couldn't help but laugh as well ...

I stupidly attempted to clean off my windows at the gas station the other day and ended up with that icy dusty winter residue on them. Well, I get the realisation on the way in this morning, via my rear view mirror that my son had drawn a selection of large, spunking cocks all over my back window

If I was still at home I'd have got a marker and drawn one on him ...

This one is a hoot. I was teaching it to say George today. It's got it close. Now to teach it some profanity to yell at passersby.

Teach it to say 'thank you' - that should work

Went to the David Hockney exhibit in SF today. Truly stunning work, especially his iPad sketches, and it was lovely to see some work from East Yorkshire, made me feel a little homesick. Not sure if it's going anywhere else, but well worth a visit if it's in your area.

I've looked it up, but it doesn't say anything about going anywhere else. I had hopes for the Art Institute of Chicago - we do actually get some good stuff here.
