Bird is the Word

You younger bloggers out there may have never heard this nonsensical, repetitive song from the mid-sixties, unless you're a Family Guy fan.  I heard (from Google) that it was sung on there.

A-well-a, everybody's heard about the bird
Bird, bird, bird, b-bird's the word
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, the bird is the word
A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, well, the bird is the word

And on and on and . . . . Once I saw the CASology clue this week, that's all I could think about.

Don't ask me why.  Just one of those brain glitches I guess.  But try as I might to think of something else for the word "word" it just wouldn't come so I surrendered and made a bird as simple and funky as the song.

If you look closely, you can see that there are actually words in the patterned paper I used.  The bird is cut from Simply Charmed with glossy enamel for his eye.  I think I'll put "A little bird told me it's your birthday"  on the inside.

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  Unless I'm out building an ark, I'll meet you here tomorrow.  Have a wonderful day however you choose to spend it.
