We used to have a cholla in our front yard. Some years ago a little bird somehow burrowed into it and built a nest. One day when my wife and I came home we saw some strange motion near the cactus: Two fledglings had crucified themselves on the side of the cholla while trying to leave the nest. We painstakingly extricated the two little birds and took them to a wildlife shelter. The next day I dug up that damned cholla and trashed it.
*grin* I can understand that - it took me awhile to find my feet in here - but I'm hooked now :) which does and hugely to the amount of time I spend online - I also belong to another Ning site - one devoted to my favourite band Otep lol. Hope to see more of you around here, it's certainly interesting :)
