Can I just tell you how much I love this Hello Mister Magpie print by Jon Turner. He’s such a handsome bird.
Speaking of which, did you happen to see any of the articles about the Australian family that adopted a magpie? Oh yes, it’s true. The Blooms happened upon the orphan when she was just a few weeks old. They contacted the authorities, who admitted they’d have no choice but to put her down. So they adopted her. Today, Penguin the Magpie is just another member of the family.
Seriously, if you haven’t been introduced, you simply must (the photo of Penguin working out slays me). It’s such a welcome bit of happiness, amid the continued devastation of this week’s news feed.
And now, for the weekend—
Wherever you may roam, whatever you may do, I hope you’ll find a soft spot on which to land.
