Lark and Otter Post

Although a late lark this fine autumnal morning and last night there was a distinct chill in the air after fine sunshine in the day. The birthday party passed off well with a lovely lunch of roast lamb and rosemary (which came from our garden) and the usual gang to celebrate.

Still wondering about yesterday's premonition. I have a theory that the whole paranormal world, ghosts, premonitions, telekinesis, levitation and so on will one day be as clear to us and as scientifically defined as radio waves are today. There is so much evidence for so much of the paranormal that it must exist - and if it exists it must respond to sets of rules. But as yet we have no idea what the rules are.

Anyway enjoy your day everyone. Camilla will be wrestling with her new computer (will it have a mouse, Camilla?) and I hope she hasn't got the toothache. I hope Faith's pigeons also do not have the toothache or any other ailment that might cause them to topple off their perches. FN's dolphins don't have perches, but isn't there a real danger that in the night they might open their mouths and flood and simply sink? I would hate to live in water all the time. Being an otter, though, could be fun, though the webbed feet might have people mistake you for a Baskerville descendant. There's a lovely short story - Laura - by Saki about a young woman with a malicious streak who is reincarnated as an otter and wreaks havoc on her husband's poultry. A very beautiful otter too like the one in the picture. And on that note I shall wish you for a second time a Happy Day. Very HappyVery Happy

Would Pigeons get beak ache instead? Does it hurt to damage ones beak?
Dolphins have far more muscular gullet than we do and we can swim under water without swallowing it. Laughing
I agree that being a master of both worlds like an otter is quite appealing although I'm not so keen on the fishy diet.

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Love the Otters great pic Fennie, and once again thank you kindly for posting for the larks.

Pleased you enjoyed the party yesterday I don't eat lamb and can't stomach it but as it turned out my HL wanted lamb chops for his evening meal so cooked lamb for him. Remember that celebrity years ago who used to have a sock puppet called Lamb Chops.Very Happy

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Lamb has to be cooked very carefully as it is a fatty meat and the fat does not taste brilliant. My neighbour's method is to slow roast it with rosemary over a number of hours at a low temperature, draining and discarding the fat from time to time.Very Happy

Re:
Fennie's Avatar I think, FN, that if otters are in the mood they will eat many things including poultry. Fish though is plentiful and cheap and has the advantage of not being kept in locked poultry houses. The Japenese like a raw fish diet. Maybe they are reincarnated otters - or otters reincarnated Japanese. Very HappyVery Happy

Re:
Fennie's Avatar Pigeons might get a metaphorical toothache, of course, FN, though I don't think they have teeth as such, though some birds do or did, anyway, especially those early dinosaur related ones. But pigeons might get an ingrowing beak, and they do get broken beaks occasionally as Faith has shown us.

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar I just wondered if a broken beak hurt, but I suppose it's more like toenail so it wouldn't unless it was near the quick.
