THREE MUSES 61 - ODD BIRD


Ethel and Freda were appalled by idle gossip and would never indulge in such nonesense.  So imagine  their astonishment when they realized their casual meeting and quick exchange of 'pleasantries' had lasted for more than two hours.

Bev challenged us to have some fun with ODD BIRD this week at the Muses and boy did I have fun.

Thank you for looking.

Love your elegant gossipy ladies. I'm sure the object of their discussion is a very odd bird indeed! I especially like the whimiscal addition of the piano keys as a sidewalk.

Ann, I can't stop cackling like an old crone!! This is so clever and delicious on so many levels. Odd birds yes but odd birds with a message perhaps (if we wanted to get serious which we don't). You are the Queen of Wacky Surreal and this is one of your very best.
