Just finished vacuuming, and I'm grabbing a quick bite to eat. After I eat, I'll finish straightening the kitchen and guest washroom on the main floor. My in laws are coming for a quiet Mother's Day dinner, and hubby is doing all the cooking!

That sounded like a really neat hint---- and one I didn't know about.

But it didn't work for me. I still had to plod through a lot of posts to find out the origin. What am I missing here?

But I see Pacanis found a way to keep things a mystery. Pac posted on Post # 21002

"Nice tip, Taxy!"

Nothing to say what that tip was and no quote for that little arrow to show up in.

Oh, my---- curiouser and curiouser.

Did you click the box? I put a red arrow. Click it once to see the quoted post. That didn't show me the quote I wanted so, I clicked the box in the quoted text of the post the previous click brought me to. Aha! Hyacinthe!

So, I readied the smoker and put the food on. And as I was doing so I saw a rabbit chasing a crow that had landed in the yard. Odd, I thought.
And then I saw the reason. The crow must have invaded the mama rabbit's nest, because it had an extremely small, thin bunny in it's mouth.
I had no idea crows would do that.

I didn't know crows did that either. Doesn't surprise me much. Did mama bunny get back her baby? Was it still alive?

Crows are scavengers. They along with buzzards clean up the earth of dead matter. If there is none around, then they hunt for fresh meat.

I went to my daughter's home for an Italian dinner. After we had a long talk about her cancer. She informed me that her memory has been affected to the point that she doesn't remember her childhood. And although the tumor is shrinking, there are little tentacles threads of the tumor that have gone crawling throughout her brain.

I know I have been saying that I always want the full truth. And I sure got it today. Happy Mother's Day. Sure.

It was hanging limp in the crow's mouth. It was so small, hamster size, that I'm sure the crow killed it simply picking it from the nest. The crow dropped it when chased, but came back to pick it up after the rabbit ran off. Then it headed into some trees to eat and flew off with the rest. There was another crow in the trees watching.
