""Hi! This is Bill from the National Eagle from the National Eagle Association."
Although something in his voice sounded familiar, I said, ""Bill, I am so glad you called. You had me at the word "Eagle."
That simple statement worked like a charm.
He laughed and I knew I had him!
I had totally caught him off guard and now I knew who it really was on the end of the phone.
It was his laugh that gave him away. It was not Bill from the National Eagle Association. Heck, I don't even know if there is such an organization. It was OS (Other Son, who as you know is not really my son, but the builder of our home) trying to disguise his voice!! He loves to tease me. You know OS. He's the young, handsome, strapping fellow that I always feed and give baked goodies to.)
After his laughter stopped, he went on to tell me that his Mom had told him to give me a jingle because one of the Eagles was perched in the pines. "OM, you'd better get in the woods."
Hitting [End Call], I immediately began putting on my nylon pull-on pants over what I had on, Then stepping into my boots while I slid my arms into my camo fleece, I grabbed zoomer and my cap and was out the door.
Walking down the all too familiar path, I turned South and there it was about 130 yards away. It let out it's "call," which to me says "I know you're there."
Now if only it would stay put until I got in, I thought. And it did as I sat and observed...until it started to rain. Then it spread it's wings, circled tightly and quietly entered the cluster of pines where the nest is located. So, I folded up my three legged stool, flung it over my shoulder and headed home to make a nice big cup of Vanilla Chai tea.
Can you identify people by their voice, their laugh or their "call"?
just saying and sharing
