Catbirds are not much to look at. However they sure can entertain you with their sounds and songs. We have one..maybe two in the yard..mostly they sound like cats in a tree…grumpy cats in a tree.
I have a hooded sweatshirt that says “Grumpy “ on it. I usually wear it on School Tour Days. The Dwarf that is named Grumpy is also on this shirt. 40 kids were through the museum on Wednesday. One of the classroom helpers said “I need a shirt just like that.”
I organize the tours, I split them into four different groups. 40 little squirming, can’t stand still, can’t shut up, runny nose first grade little darlings. I got stuck with the downstairs communications, medical, resort and high school memory room and the hands on fur and wool exhibit. All the kids were freezing..some were shivering..and complaining that it was too cold to be downstairs. Ya..think? Welcome to my world.
Most of them knew about Alexander Graham Bell inventing the telephone..but had no idea what a pay phone would be used for. They also didn’t know what the word “disconnect “ meant. Such as in “If you didn’t have more money to put in the pay phone the operator would disconnect you.” Perhaps they thought it meant you would be beheaded or something…I don’t know. I was glad when their time was up. I was shot. They were a rowdy bunch. One of the teachers just shook her head and said “It is getting near the end of the school year.” She looked like I felt.
Some teachers have wonderful control of their students and some do not.
I came home and crashed and Far Guy said “I think I feel good enough to work for you tomorrow so you can have the day off.” What a doll!
So I had a day off yesterday, I had a Doctors appointment, she is changing my blood pressure medication yet again. I did some shopping for the museum. I stopped by the museum. I took many museum phone calls here at home..gosh it is no wonder my blood pressure is up..I had a call yesterday morning before I was even awake for the day. For those of you that don’t know me well or how much I hate the telephone ringing, we only have a phone in the house because Far Guy insists that a phone booth at the end of the drive would be very inconvenient for him.
