Guess who's coming to dinner?
April showers indeed bring May Flowers. The Editor’s Agapanthus are starting to bloom at last. Their tall stalks and bulbs have been growing in numbers and the purple buds are starting to burst through, becoming beautiful lavender blue flowers for May. Spring has definitely arrived on the Broward. Not everything is coming up roses though.
A few years ago, I had a roof leak commence during a National Weather Severe Storm warning over my home. It was some of the most powerful rains I have seen in my 19 years here on the Broward. My insurance company denied the claim and said my 17-year old home with 40-year shingles was really 29 years old and had old worn out shingles instead causing the leak so they would not pay. I got a lawyer and even the Insurance company's own inspector sent me an email indicated it was the severe weather, not wear that caused the leak. It still took over a year to come to a settlement. Once settled they had 20 days to send the check. They then reneged by not sending the settlement check. Then I have to wait for a judge to order them to pay up. So much for integrity. I would not recommend this company to anyone. I would like to invite them to dinner and pray all their roofs leak too and have them covered by less than honest companies and give them a taste of their own medicine. But I digress. Ma and Pa Eagle had a dilemma too. They had to decide what was for lunch. I was on a pontoon boat in Florida with new Facebook Friend Dick Vautrinot and fellow photographer Chris Billman. There were lots of pairs of eagles to be seen but not much action. Finally, Ma eagle told her mate Jorge to get some fish. He leaped off the limb, flew high, spotted a fish, did a summersault in midair and swooped down and snatched an unsuspecting catfish and flew off for dinner. And I caught it all on the Doohickey. Just like I caught the Insurance company in a big fat lie. But I digress again. Are we starting to see a pattern here?
Shad was on the menu for the local Osprey and another of the Eagles. I would like to give certain Insurance Company a sandwich that starts with same fish also but it would not be a "Shad" Sandwich. Oh, Lord hush my mouth..I am sounding like the head of the DNC…Fish anyone?
