I rise with the birds - go outside - lite a mosquito trap as they are hungry in the morning, make coffee, get a bit of breakfast then the girls and I are outside ALL day painting peacefully in the back yard! It's working too- a friend visited recently and she said "you look better" - it's because I don't have time for bullshit when I happily painting tiki to make me & others smile. No time for Donald dramatics, cannabis will soon be legal - let's focus on all that will go right for a while, even my cannabis painting are anticipating good times- imagining all who will grow- become closer to the plant & more educated in general- ending stigma & more.
Most of the time painting I don't even have on any music, I love listening to the different chirps', bugs, pond, waterfall & of course the bluejays. I have babies at my feeder just learning to squeak - not yet Squak! Birds are on decline around the world - I've noticed fewer bluejay and attributed it to them possibly just moving around - that is -until Friday.
Friday while outback painting -I heard the bluejay, watched them at my feeder- and suddenly I heard a kinda soft pop and a "smacking noise" could hear the bird in mid squak - DID I just hear what I think I heard?
Did some one just shoot a blue jay?
I knew EXACTLY where it came from & sure enough just as looked over the mother of the house (I can see them from my deck) came outback and I heard her ask 'did you get it?' *YOU FUCKING bitch - You are aware of this bullshit & ALLOW it?
She was 'hushed' then - I guess they knew I was listening as I stood up and looked over as soon as it happened. I was in shock- so much so I told my self 'JUST paint- do not think about it..' So much happening the pup, vehicle shopping, tiki show coming up - I actually forgot.
Yesterday, while painting- I didn't have the radio on... listening to the birds again, the dogs all around me sleeping (thank goodness - lol - break time) I sat to paint, keep in mind my deck is raised higher than anyones - Norm build it, it's awesome (of course) another outdoor room - so I can see more than most. I sat to paint for a break, we also have privacy screens all around so you could not see me... & then - that POS did it again.
This time the CRACK of the bullet smacking the bark (very close to us) was so loud - Poppy fell of the chair, Daisy and the other dogs including the pup all jumped! All the birds at the feeder took off ! The bluejay SQUAKED! I don't think was hit 'this time'. It was so loud my heart was racing - it was terrifying! NO doubts this time of EXACTLY where & what it was.
After it happened I watched and saw no movement- that's because I flew off my chair from fear- and he realized I was there- I RAN up to my upstairs bathroom - jump on the toilet and looked out the window- best clear view- and I saw the USELESS POS get up then and sneak back into the house, closing the screen every so quietly - I SAW YOU, fucking useless piece of crap - who does this? I know - miserable, nasty, people with nothing better to do - no life goals, no ambition - petty DRUNKS who probably can't stand the bluejays with their constant hangovers. Every time they are drunk (every holiday) screaming until all hours, countless times over the years the police have visited them. I know they are reading this, so - KNOW this you worthless piece of crap- I will fucking report you every time. I will be outside with the bluejays & I will have my camera on every time they are around & I hope you go to fucking jail where you belong.
The ignorance is astounding, completely selfish. It's illegal to SHOOT an air rifle in a subdivision - BUT YOU KNOW that too you sneaky fucker, don't you. YOU were caught.
NOT to mention there are so many small kids, the backyard behind me is a daycare- clearly this asshole doesn't give a fuck about anything but himself & as for the 'mom' ... I heard you - NO shock here. Miserable drunks with nothing better to do but sit around and shoot bluejays. I'm sure anyone reading this in the vicinity knows exactly who I'm talking about.
Why shouldn't they know what you are really like?
Do you think this is a joke?
It's not, this sort of person thinks they above everyone else, what if he decides your dog is barking too much?
It is a criminal offence to wilfully and without lawful excuse kill, maim, wound, poison or injure a bird, or for anyone to cause or permit unnecessary pain, suffering or injury to a bird. Both wild and domestic birds are protected. Enforcement of criminal offences related to birds is the responsibility of the police and humane societies. The penalty is a fine of not more than $2000 or to imprisonment for six months or both.
All I'm trying to do is paint in peace, listen to the birds, enjoy my backyard, enjoy the sunshine, painting tiki to make others smile - what about you asshole how do you contribute to the world? Oh yeah...
With TLC & THC
BTW - I've also reported you to the Canadian National bird society.
