eleven days

After her husband had been killed by a car on the first day of winter, Mrs. Turtledove had taken up residence atop a light just outside the doctors’ building entrance.  The hum of the light comforted her and the people coming and going would amuse her until mating season came ‘round.

  1. LOL! Well, present, that’s certainly true for humans, and I wouldn’t think of refuting your theory in relation to birds, either, but if I were in a betting situation, I’d put my money on Mrs. Turtledove re-marrying come spring, because turtle doves are known to form strong pair bonds ;-)

  2. Hi GeL, yeah, I got both common and uncommon this season : )
    Mrs. T-D’ll be fine, though. I heard she takes life a lot less personally than we humans ; )

    Susan! I haven’t seen you in a coon’s age! This is so great! …even though you’ve caught me dripping with abject fatuity… Aw, hell, it happens…
    But yes, the little T-bird, so cute stuffed up there, just blending : )
