People I see – 10-25-2010

Lawn mowing birdFriday evening as I was heading home on Fremont, I absently noticed this lady mowing, then did a double take!  Look closely…she’s got a cockatoo (so I’m told)  sitting on her shoulder!

I quickly hit the brakes and after traffic cleared, swung over to the other side of the street.  As she turned my way, I smiled at her and indicated that I would like to take a picture.  She smiled back, struck a nice pose with her cockatoo and let me snap a couple. 


I gave her another smile and a “thumbs up” as thank you and continued on my path home without ever exchanging words with her.

You never know what you’re gonna run across out there!

God bless…

    Hilarious! By the way, that’s a cockatoo. Cockatiels are smaller.
