So I know birds flock together to go south and things like that, but this was just ridiculous. I heard this chirping sound and looked out the window to find thousands upon thousands of little black birds swarming through my backyard. I grabbed my camera and took some footage. At one point there were so many of them that they nearly blacked out the sky. Is this normal? I don’t know much about birds but you don’t see this too often. It looked like a scene out of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds.” Here’s the video.
Good riddance to @Enrichmond. I do hope someone assumes stewardship of the East End cemeteries, but I’ve been saying for years something stunk in this organization or just wasn’t quite right.

So much truth it hurts. Not to mention it’s a rock in the rising stream that is inflation. Hell, even the Dollar Tree is $1.25 now. But the old standby Costco hot dog? Forever a buck fifty and I’m here for it.
