Tracks. Can you guess the little visitor?


Dad I’m not happy…”

What’s wrong?

School. Apparently they think that origami is a fun activity”

Well many would agree.

Not here they won’t. So when a teacher says ‘I have a fun activity for youI personally would not be then referring to origami. I am tempted to contact my lawyer on this.”

You might enjoy it.

Not happening. Two videos each 10 minutes long to follow. Making a bird and a dragon. I’d rather eat broccoli.”

Wow must be bad if broccoli is a better option. Why don’t you have a go and see what happens.

Well only if you do it as well. Parents should be made to share the torture.”

##### 30 minutes later#####

Well Dad did you enjoy that….”

No I didn’t Son. Broccoli is a better option.

Any idea what those two creations are supposed to be. Certainly not a bird or dragon. And we followed the instructions….”

No idea what they are. We might as well have spent 30 minutes randomly scrunching up some paper.

So the visitor….. it’s this one.

Comes and stands tight next to the front door and waits patiently for me to get my backside in gear. It’s a clever strategy. Always gets some food first. What a clever bird.

  1. HELLO! When it comes to the art classes, I 100% agree with Hawklad–what may seem fun to some is NOT to others. I’m not for origami, either, but Bash adores it. He doesn’t even need directions any more to make a little origami Yoda. But that’s him, you know? Biff and Blondie have no patience for origami, just as Bash has no patience for Biff drawing charts of Mario characters and Star Trek ships and Blondie coloring mystery mosaics. To each his own! Except for school, I guess. Sigh. But if Hawklad would like to take a crack at Darth Paper, he may have fun with that πŸ™‚ it’s even a book series!

  2. Is that a chubby pigeon? His strategy is paying off! He has a personal chef in you. If it makes you feel any better, I’m dismal when it comes to oragami as well! πŸ’•

  3. Way better than I could do, but origami never interested me. Maybe Hawklad should try macrome. (Is that really how it is spelt? Sounds way different than it looks, lol. Just like origami.)

      1. My talents are confined to words and ideas. I need others to put them into material productions. My hands, and even my musical voice, are quite inept. A sound recherche once told me he could make a anyone sound good. After he got me in his studio, he changed that to almost anyone. I think I broke some of his equipment. I do break mirrors, after all. (jaj — just a joke.)

  4. I like your avian friend. What’s it’s name? If its hanging around the door waiting for brekky it must’ve given it’s name…πŸ˜‰

    I’ve never tried origami. I think I’d probably do pretty well. I had several cool ways of folding the notes I’d pass in school πŸ˜‰πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ’ŒπŸ’ŒπŸ’ŒπŸ’Œ
