Why are They Called Barn Swallows, Anyway?
Posted by F&S
We, Frenchies, were outside the other day just basking in the sun, when along came Vivaldi, the cat. We have seen the cats do some pretty foolish things, but this maneuver just might take the cake.
1 Well, look what we have here! It's a barn swallow's nest filled with the most yummy....I mean mummy and her babies!
2 If I just climb this ladder, I can peer in and plan my meal....I mean plan my DEAL. Yes, I want to plan my DEAL with their mummy for when I can play with these sweet youngsters.
3 Don't those cute chicks look delicious?.....I mean, those cute chicks must be waiting to eat something nutritious!
4 Oh no! - Mummy's back and she doesn't sound too happy.
5 I'll just slip away and pretend I wasn't even looking.
6 AHHHHH!!! A dive bomb!!! OK, I promise I won't go near them again!!!
7 Hey, I get the point! I just thought that since you're called 'barn swallows,' that you were supposed to be swallowed by me!!! Now I understand!
