Through the net curtain darkly

As I continue to edit my short story for this competition, Charlie sits on next door’s posh shed admiring his potential feathered snack.

Disclaimer: Picture shot surreptitiously through my net curtains! LOL!


Charlie says: I admire how tall the fir tree is.

(I think there's a lesson about perspective here! Thank you, Charlie!)

Happy October!

Charlie are you really admiring the tree or is it the birdies that are sitting in it! Jenn is net curtain twitching to see if you are going to deliver her a feathery present.

That's kind of a ghostly picture. I like it!

Marg said...

Charlie isn't fun to watch those fevvers. They are hard to catch though. It takes a lot of effort so we recommend just watching. Great picture, we think. Take care.

So did Charlie get his snack??? My kitty likes to watch feathered snacks through the window, but she's too afraid to go outside and actually see one up close and personal.

Talli Roland said...

Those pesky net curtains always get in the way!

Go Old Kitty go!

Happy October to you too! I love the fall, the leaves turning, pumpkins and the air is a lot crisper!
