Mr Business Bird

This is the kind of bird that makes the world go round, but you'll never read about him in the papers. His family loves him and he dotes on them. He takes the chicks to their sporting events, and cheers from the sidelines. He's the one who drives them to the ER when they crash themselves into various objects and need x-rays or stitches. He's the one who teaches his chicks how to navigate by the stars, and how to tell the difference between friend and foe. He keeps his obligations to his family and his community and those who work for him. He's never going to be famous, but he's a great role model to those who know and love him. The original artwork in his nest are the dozens of drawings his little chicks have done for him that say "Best Dad Bird," and he couldn't be happier about that. His other collection is the tools he needs to keep the family nest in good repair, but he isn't above a good snowball fight when the weather is right, and he loves to chase his chicks through the sprinkler on hot days. All in all, a terrific bird, and I'm pretty sure we all know somebody just like him.

He's dressed rather soberly, Lynne, but still stylishly. The feather colouring demonstrates that he's got a touch of pizzazz in him. LOL

Elegant wing = classy guy (and the beak is pretty awesome, too)

He has an air of dependability, wisdom and kindness. The paisley print is fantastic Lynne!


p.s. got any leftover meatballs...?

Huh. And here I thought the big-shot businessman wears tatersall check shirts. Merry Christmas.
