Thursday Theme Song: Goldfincher

Richard Schear photos © 

He's the bird, the bird with the golden touch 
A finch's touch 
Such a bright color 
Beckons you to join in his pretty song 
Just sing along 

That Mister Gold Fincher!
Pretty bird, beware of his heart of gold 
It might be cold 
He loves only goldfinches 
He loves gold 
He loves only goldfinches
He loves gold

Posted for Hootin' Anni's musical meme
Thanks, Anni!

I laughed out loud as I heard the James Bond theme in there, and then again when you moved from praise to warning. In that second, I realized you had offered alternatives on the symbolic level! Many ways to read this, but I am glad I have the choice not to fear the actual bird. The photo is also stunning!

Do you actually have these birds in your garden? They look so bright!

I loved the rabbit photos as well, so cute!

Pretty clever, Kay!! I'm glad I stopped by for this one! Actually, I had upgraded Google Chrome and haven't been able to access blogs ever since. Very frustrating. Finally figured out I could access through Internet Explorer, DUH!! I'm not exactly savvy when it comes to the computer, but I eventually figure things out. Hope you are doing well. ~karen

My elderly friend who lives by herself, keeps finches inside her little apartment. She doesn't keep them in the cage. one day, her fairly new carer came and forgot to shut the door quickly. Bye bye birds.

My friend says the carer did it deliberately because she didn't want to clean the poop all over the house.
