At the Pier in St. Pete, there are outdoor tables where, if you wanted, you could eat and watch the water, the boats, the birds, or the fishermen casting a line in the hopes of a good catch. It might be nice to sit outside with your ice cream on a temperate day when the thermometer wasn't pushing past 100 degrees. Or not! There are .. THE BIRDS. They are all over the tables and benches and they are doing what birds do frequently and between you and me, I know they have not been trained not to do it there. I chose not to sit.
They look like a bunch of old gossips ... and ... there is always one in every crowd isn't there? One that just won't shut up???
I believe this one was letting me know exactly what punishment he would mete out should I be foolhardy enough to try to sit on "his" bench. He had nothing to worry about.
