Greetings diligent readers. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your steadfast doggie reporter

It has been a turbulent few days here in Western New York. Wednesday we had freezing rain all day long. It covered the trees and grass and bushes.
Then it all melted by the evening. During the night the freezing rain started again. This time it covered the driveway with super slippery black ice. Dad's car was coated with the type of icy glaze that takes a hammer and chisel to get off. Fortunately ghostwriter's car was in the garage and has good snow tires. So she was able to take me to see my groomer Miss Jacquie.
Meanwhile, lots of birdies were enjoying the seeds we have outside for them. Not many people like starlings, but I think they're kind of pretty in their speckled winter feathers.
However, Mr. Mortimer Seedcruncher III, CEO of Sparrows Inc. was not pleased to see them eating all the suet, and pooping everywhere!
Last night the weather changed again, and now we have falling temperatures, and very high winds. The wind advisory said it would be 25 to 35mph, with gusts up to 60mph! Wow!
I went out and checked the Sparrows Inc. Winter Lodge in the Sticks.
|Hi birdies! Are you OK in there?|
A lot of them came out and chirped loudly at me, but they didn't fly away. I don't know if they were happy to see me, or angry that I bothered them. From all the noise they made, it was certainly crowded in there! I'm thinking it's a convention with try-outs for their annual birdie kick-boxing event coming in Spring.
Seriously! Have you ever seen sparrows fighting? It's no holds barred! I'm glad I got my season tickets already!
Well, as long as they're safe from the blustery wind!
I think I'm just going to stay inside the rest of the day and play with my squeaky toys. The wind is supposed to quiet down later. Hope everyone has a good weekend!
