Tattletale...and Cat And Mouse

Good Tuesday! These are some pictures of my magnolias that bloomed two weeks ago. With the age of digital media, you'd think I'd have gotten them out of the camera before now....Yea, right!

In the single flower pics the top one is a Saucer Magnolia, that's the smaller tree. The bottom pic is from the bigger tree, that's a Ballerina Magnolia.

I had to get these out 'cause the lilacs are already to bloom!

A woman went to a pet shop and immediately spotted a large, beautiful parrot. There was a sign on the cage that said $50.00.

"Why so little," she asked the pet store owner.

The owner looked at her and said, "Look, I have to tell you first that this bird has lived in a house of prostitution for the past twenty years and sometimes it says some pretty tough stuff."

The woman thought about this, but decided at that price she had to have the bird anyway. She took it home, hung the bird's cage up in her living room and waited for it to say something.

The bird looked around the room, then at her, turned his head to one side and said, "New house, new madam."

The woman was a bit offended at the implication, but then thought, "Well, that's really not so bad."

When her two teenage daughters returned from school the bird saw them and said, "New house, new madam, new girls."

The girls and the woman were a bit offended but then they began to laugh about the comments considering how and where the parrot had been living for the past twenty years.

Moments later, the woman's husband Frank came home from work.

The bird looked at him and said, "Hi, Frank."

(Talk about a dead duck! LOL!)

"I don't have to chase this mouse!"

    Here they are sometimes called a Tulip Tree.
    Was delighted to learn they were called magnolias, for the name brought into focus all those stories where they are mentioned, all those scenes beneath.
