Vulture Mystery Solved


While driving through a major city in the American tropics on recent afternoon, I noticed a turkey vulture standing in a puddle at the edge of the road.

"That's strange!" I thought. "I wonder why that TV is doing that?"

I looked skyward and saw another adult vulture, then several more, soaring overhead, just above the roof of a nearby store.


"Is there something dead on top of that roof? Why would those vultures be swooping so low over a store?"

Then I noticed the sign on the front of the building and all my questions about vulture behavior were answered. I always thought that vultures located their food by smell. But now I think it may be because they can READ!

this is not possible, is it? How do YOU find all the scenes of the strange and impossible?

Dude, you're strange. Beautiful mind, but strange.
My kind of people.

I totally cracked up when I read this post. For some reason, it reminds me so much of the banter I remember and enjoyed when I was around you and John together. Silly, silly, silly.
