Don't Panic, But I Think We Have A Problem!

The last two weeks I have posted about the strange behavior of the pair of Lump Birds over the weekend. I think they've been watching the blog. I think they know we've noticed and have started documenting the unusual activity around here. I'm not sure if Lumps can read though, so as far as they know (assuming they can't read), today's post is about a tree. (If they can read, we are in SO much trouble because that means they can assemble things from instructions. Things that Lump Birds don't need to be assembling.) So this weekend I caught them acting suspicious while sitting under our new tree* and when I went to get the camera I distinctly heard one of them say, "Act casual" and the other muttered something about baseball, but I didn't catch the whole sentence. At this point, I don't know if they were using baseball as their cover conversation or if they plan to bludgeon us to death with a baseball bat while we sleep. I can tell you that I am sleeping with one eye open though. Finn is sleeping with all four legs in the air which tells me he either isn't concerned about the Lump Birds, or he thinks they'll be easier to trip with his legs up. It's hard to tell what's going on in his head. My other main concern right now is what kind of sick sporting goods store would sell a couple of Lump Birds a baseball bat?

*We got a new Red Maple tree in our backyard at the end of last week. Caleb wanted to name it, so told him what it was and what colors it would turn. He thought about it and decided to name it "Apple." We may have the only Maple tree in the world named Apple. The photos are Apple's buds, which are just starting to turn to leaves. The most awesome thing about this tree is that since it's a Maple, it makes those helicopter seeds. Since it's a Red Maple, it makes pink helicopters!

Too funny. We're having our mulberry tree taken down in two weeks and replaced with a red maple. I won't be around to see the pink helicopters though so make sure to post pics of yours!

We lost our japanese maple just over a year ago from heavy snow combined with mole holes at their roots. (was so sad as it was so beautiful) Planted a few blueberry bushes in it's place. Now the stump from the old tree is a favorite sunning spot for the cats.

(we had snow flurries out of the blue friday, yet yesterday made number 4 for the lawn being mowed this year)

Ooh. Can't wait to see pink helicopters - I think I've only seen the regular whitish/yellow ones.

Be aware. Stay aware. Lump birds are NOT to be trusted, especially if you drive a convertible.
