Sad Day at Splashwear
Boy…has this been a rough week….first, the tornado that tore
through central Arkansas a few days ago…and today, my little orphaned Carolina
wren, Larry Bird died. Now, I realize
that losing a little wild bird isn’t even close to the devastation the victims
of the tornado are suffering, but losing my little charge, is just another
thing on the pile this week.
If you follow my
blog, you know that we found him about 3 weeks ago…with no feathers and tried
to nurse him to adulthood. We got
pretty close, but earlier this week, he hurt his leg and I guess just couldn’t
It’s crazy how attached you can get to such a tiny little
thing. He was no bigger than a
hummingbird. But, we loved him and I
was looking forward to seeing him fly all around the house and perhaps,
eventually, setting him free. I kept
telling my husband that I wasn’t sure I could let him go and my husband just
kept insisting that we WERE going to let him go! Well, I guess he set himself free…he’s in birdie heaven
So….all you shoppers who came to the store to see him…..I’m
sorry, but he’s gone now. But, when you look in the trees and see a sweet
little Carolina wren, think of Larry!
I’ll miss you little guy!
Happy Flying Larry!
