Our New House Guest.

Remember our old Long Beach friend Steve?

You can read about him

Well, we have a new friend here in Lake Elsinore. Gert the bird.
She's a saucy gal who spends her days doing who knows what but always comes home
to settle in for the night above our front door.

She enjoys pooping all over our doorstep and scaring the living daylights out of our visitors.
Anytime you get close to the door whether you're coming or going she swoops down and flutters awkwardly in your face before hiding on the roof till youre gone. It's frightening!

My 2 favorite Gert moments so far are:

1. Devon and Mike came over one night and as they were walking up to the door
Gert swooped down and went straight for them. Devon screamed and ran and
Mike let out a fearful, "Oh SHIT" before trying to catch her.

2. Leah and Kathleen were leaving one night and before I could get the words, "Watch out for..", Gert tried to attack Kathleen's head. If you haven't met Kathleen then you don't know how entertaining something so simple could be.

I've grown to love her and learned to make lots of noise before exiting through
the front. Tim on the other hand hates her and is plotting a way to....let's just say
"Permanently Remove" her.

So this is a warning. If you come over to our house after 6:00 PM, watch out for my girl Gert.


  1. I don't know how I feel about Gert. She scared the living daylights out of me that fateful night :) buuuut I am glad to have been a source of entertainment. At least I'm well aware of her now.

  2. 1. What posessed you to say "saucy"?
    2. I wish I could find the picture of Devon on all fours with the bird on her butt!

  3. How often do you get to label something saucy? I just went for it!
