We have BLACKBIRD as our word for inspiration this week at TAKE A WORD and that reminded me of the blackbird I saw the other day. I was just about to close the blinds on the thoroughly wet weather outside when I saw this old gentleman looking my way. Then I realised he wasn't looking at me at all, but at the blackbird perched on his upturned umbrella. I swear I heard it say : it's a bit on the wet side sir! I couldn't swear to it, of course!
