“I was aksin’ if you see much of your granddaddy these days.” Jim felt as if the stuffing had been knocked out of him. But how could he expect the boy to give a little if he clammed up every time Shamayal asked a question? “He died.” Embarrassed, the boy shuffled in his seat. “It happened in his garden. A neighbour found a robin standing guard on his fork handle. I can’t imagine any other bird doing that.” (A Funeral for and Owl, www.jane-davis.co.uk)
Lovely little things! My #interfloramum is not much of a "Bird Person" otherwise these little fellas. She believes that her Dad comes back into her life as a robin when things are getting a little tough. It is v odd because they do always seem to show up when she seems to need a pick me up!!!#Lovely!
