Crows

Crows

A Chapter by Robin
"

inebriated

"

when I was younger, I had the chance to meet a fellow who had a still - Cornmash whiskey .

   one day we happened to be there, when he had diposed of the alchohol laden mash into nearby field behind his rural home.  we sat out there talking , me listening, when he said , "here they come ",  pointing to a flock of crows .  They soon found the mash  and began consuming it - and getting drunk . 

    it was happy hour for these birds . we sat their laughing with them , I swear they would look at each other and in their now inebriated call,  poke fun at each other - You are soooo drunk , nooo , you are soooo drunk .  they would waddle around , tripping over their feet  , and once and awhile one would decide to try and fly - with predictable result -  up it would go circling and then one could tell, it realized this was a bad, bad idea and attempt a soft landing - keyword attempt.  the poor bird usually came in hard and fast , crashing into a few others on the ground trying to wave off their drunk friend.

eventually,  they all waddled off to the shade of the walnut trees and managed to find roost and sleep it off .  memories .

i admit (shamefully) that i once served peanuts and beer to my dog - and the image of that poor dog sitting on its butt and not being able to focus and then snoring like hell all night long...and the obvious hangover it suffered from the next morning...i think i'll burn in hell for that :))))))))))

That's funny--drunken crows. Dad and his brothers made moonshine back in the twenties and thirties, and he said they'd always feed the mash solids to the pigs. Same thing--drunken pigs.

LOL!!!!~ don't drink and fly!!!~

seriously I have always found crows and ravens to be imbued with rich personality~ we had a slew of them in Rumany when I was coming up~they congregated around the berry orchards and the brandy stills~ lol
