Bird on a Stick

OK, so was a movie called “Bird on a Wire” that had Goldie Hawn, Mel Gibson and others back in 1990.  Never saw it, and I doubt that i will.

There is a frequently eaten treat called “Pup on a Stick”, made up of a hot dog encased in corn meal.

But today, I share with you, “Bird on a Stick”!!!!  That’s right, the best of both worlds, though I wouldn’t recommend eating this bird – I mean, it’s not a turkey and not much to eat!!!!

This picture was also taken at the Atlanta zoo.  They have a parakeet enclosure where there are some absolutely beautiful birds!!!  Talk about colorful (well, this one isn’t as colorful as many, but I thought it was still beautiful and I’d not seen one like it before.)  Enjoy this “bird on a stick”!!!!

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY: in 1949, from Carswell Air Force Base in Fort Worth, the Lucky Lady II, a B-50 Superfortress, takes off on the first nonstop round-the-world flight. Under the command of Captain James Gallagher, and featuring a crew of 14 men, the aircraft averaged 249 miles per hour on its 23,452-mile trek. The Lucky Lady II was refueled four times in the air by B-29 tanker planes and on March 2 returned to the US after 94 hours in the air.

In December 1986, Voyager, a lightweight propeller plane constructed mainly of plastic, landed at Edwards Air Force Base in Muroc, CA, having completed the first global flight without refueling.

TRIVIA FOR TODAY:  Hollywood’s first and arguably best canine superstar was Rin Tin Tin, a five-day-old German Shepherd found wounded in battle in WWI France and adopted by an American soldier, Lee Duncan. He would sign his own contracts with his paw print.
