    It's been very windy here today. And as I was sitting at my desk gazing out the window, a blackbird flew passed just as a really large gust of wind blew through the valley. The blackbird slowed right down to a stop, and was hanging there in mid air flapping it's wings furiously for a seconds before it went flying backwards and up. When the wind disipated, the same blackbird, now somewhat higher than before flew past again.

    Well I never. /end pointless topic

    I tink if one of those blackbirds had flown three foot away from my office window, I'd either be dead or wounded in some horrible way.
