Drowning Attempt

Flock of crows attacked a crow and tried to kill it. When someone tried to intervene, the flock of crows threw the wounded crow into the swimming pool next door.

My treadmill gives me (nobody else) a shock (shoots sparks) when I touch it.
I have 2 TVs and a scanner that sometimes refuse to turn off. The off button on my vacuum quit working.

The Crows

This week three crows have been busy pulling up the Baby Tears I just planted.
Three times now...
I plant it.
They come pull it out.

Keep Flying

When they break your wings, get a broom and keep flying.

The Broken Wing

A large black crow dragging a broken wing hopped up my sidewalk,  jumped up the step to my front porch and flipped over to lie on its back directly in front of my door. The crow was very still, except for lifting its head and looking around. When I walked out the door and stood next to it, the crow would turn its head and watch me but not move other than that. After about an hour, I called Animal Rescue and they said they would come get the crow and repair its wing if  I would put a box over it. When the crow saw the box, it was able to jump up and fly several yards. Animal Rescue picked it up and told me they would release the crow when the wing healed.  Named it Larry because I thought it would be back with Moe and Curly.   ;)    There are a lot of crows around my house, usually at least three!

Flock of Crows Mystery

I was having a cup of coffee on the deck outside the door in my backyard when a flock of crows landed in a tree in the far corner of the yard and started making a lot of noise. I asked my companion to chase them away and he took the broom from behind my chair, walked to the tree and waved it in the air in an attempt to make them fly away. Suddenly, the two largest crows made high speed Kamikaze dives directly at my head. I ducked and they crashed with a thud into the wall behind me. 
Why did they attack me and not the person waving the broom?

Salad Levitation

I went shopping and out to lunch at the mall. Since it was a nice day and very crowded inside, I took my lunch out to the patio and found one tiny table near the wall was still available. About halfway through lunch a sudden, extremely strong, gust of wind hit my back and swirled around me. The package I was holding in my lap was blown to the floor at my feet in spite of my best efforts to hold on to it. Then my salad plate lifted from the table and floated through the air to the center of the aisle. It hovered there about 5 feet above the floor for several seconds and then started spinning, tossing salad out in a circle as it spun. After spinning most of the salad onto the floor, the plate paused momentarily, still suspended in mid-air, then turned upside down and dumped the remaining lettuce onto the floor before it made a direct dive under a table across the aisle. There were no gusts of wind anywhere else on that patio! It was like watching a Harry Potter movie.
