Day 86
I cycled into town today to buy two tickets to the ballet - Dad loves it and he needs a bit of fun just now. On the way home, a magpie swooped me - the first of the season. I heard the familiar but scary sudden whoosh and it shot ahead of me - "Ha Ha, just practising" he squawked. Sometimes they grab at you with their claws. Very occasionally they stab someone with their beak. The swooping season is at its height in September. 12 km ride

Oh my ... those maggies TERRORISED me when I was a kid, walking to and from the bus stop. I admired the kids who could just put their school bags on their heads and keep walking.
