Two tales (tails)

My husband and his brother are 360 days apart...
almost like twins....growing up...they were quite the handful..
my husband is the younger of the two....
what one didn't think of the other did...
My father in law was quite the handful also (still is)...
so I guess it was an inherited trait...
He taught them the purse trick....
they would find an old purse....
and put doggie doo in it....
then they would put it out next to the road...
 hide in the ditch or behind trees depending on where they were...
well some one would always stop...
pick up the purse...get back in the car...dump it out...
only to find the doggie doo in their car...
there would usually be some very salty languange...
then tires spinning...
which of course...brought the boys into fits of laughter...
This is one of the tales my hubby tells...
I decided I would share a few stories with you..
the ones that polite company will enjoy...

speaking of tales (tails)
this is a scene you see all over town...
around sun down...
 a more close up view....
they can be very noisy....
we have some sunshine today....
then back to frigid temps in the morning...

Well, as I am not one who found one of those purses I find the story to be quite funny. Boys will be boys, huh?

Could you use a few more black birds? :) Hugs

A very funny story for anyone but someone who found the purse. I can certainly imagine the fits of laughter they had watching...I wonder if they ever got caught.
