Birds on television

Small (5) Madam’s contribution to the morning was to slide the curtains aside, turn her breakfast chair to face out of the window & announce that she was watching “Bird Television”.

We’ve not been watching the idiot box recently. Breaths were held while madam thought her way through this.

She promptly spotted & commented on some magpies.

The lady (Bev) who comes in to do “care work” (it varies) for us until my head heals up had just about dropped the iron when she heard the original announcement. (-:

We were a bit boggled that the 3D, colour, flickerless display was occupying her interest (Small Sir’s, too) more thoroughly than the flashy, artificial one we traditionally watch for entertainment. It was pleasing to see the more natural approach working so well.
