The Birds

I was stopped at a traffic light and had one of those eerie moments when you see something and it reminds you of something from your past.  I took this picture because it reminded me of the first time I saw Alfred Hitchcock's movie The Birds.  At the time of the photo I did not realize the camera setting was set at black & white.  After I took the picture, the birds took off flying everywhere.  There were birds all around our van.  My son said he thought the birds were going to attack our car.  I think maybe the flash scared them.  Do you remember the first time you saw the movie The Birds.

Ahaa Moment

Sometimes it takes me a while to figure things out.  Remember those cast iron crosses I found at a great bargain.  I didn't know what they were made for or what to do with them.  I even found a way to cut the nail off the back.  Well, I think I finally figured out what they are made for.  I believe they are made to add a little spark to a plain candle.  The nails can easily be pushed into the side of any candle to give the candle a little more decorative look. I went back to Sacco to buy ten more crosses. I added ribbon around one used candle before adding the nail and displayed it at a craft show.  That display helped to sell all the crosses I had.
I just laugh when I have a light bulb moment or what Oprah calls it an ... Ahaa moment.  LOL
