There is a far away look Elaine gets that alerts the Flock. They all settle around her and wait for her grand announcement.
“You know, if we find a way to bend that branch over there, we can slide right into the bird bath.”
Elaine is the ideas bird. Not a moment goes by that she isn’t dreaming something up. They aren’t all good ideas like the slide. Constructing a saddle out of the sun hat they found in the yard to ride the cat around on? Not a good idea.
She did, however, figure out a way to create sun parasols from the Hosta leaves. Sledding down the roof on birch bark is considered an all-time Elaine Idea favourite. Swan diving from the roof into the rain barrel was vetoed.
Elaine definitely needs the Flock for a reality check.
“There are no silly ideas!” she extols. “But there are unpractical ideas, and downright dangerous ones,” they counter.
A few tweaks to her thought processes and new plans are implemented.
Apparently, the groundhog doesn’t mind wearing a saddle.
