“You’ll love it. Birds of a feather flock together.” (113)

“I don’t mean to question your judgment, Jay, but isn’t it a bit run down?”
“It has great potential and a bird’s eye view of the clearing.” (138)

“You’d have to be thin as a sparrow to fit through those doors. Face it, baby, you are one round robin.” (105)

    OH, Grandma, you outdid yourself today with your foursome. I counted six bird sayings in your four stories. Awesome. Thanks for the four chuckles this morning! It’s hard to pick a fave, but if I had to choose, I’d pick the last one…It has two bird-related weight sayings.

    All very funny complaints. You did great! :)
    That house generates complaints, I can tell.
    But, … This house is all ‘original,’ that counts a lot.
    (Well, at least for antique cars it does.)
