George gets the last word ... this time.

I have chosen to live my life among animals rather than people for a reason – I find animals more interesting and less complicated than the average human being. I'm not referring to you here, of course. We're talking averages, and you are way above average, and I know we'd get along famously. I digress.

Anyway, as a student of herd dynamics, I am fascinated by the relationship between George and Lucy,
the acknowledged #3 and #2 in the herd pecking order, respectively.

Everything is hunky-dory until I come into the picture, then things go south in a hurry.

One or the other gets jealous when I take pictures, groom, pay attention to, or otherwise spend time with the other. 
It never gets ugly enough that they hurt each other, but somebody always has to get in the last word to make his or her point.

This time, George had the final say.

Lucy: He'll pay for that.


  1. female = plot and get even.

  2. It's tough to be the middle children...


  3. Reminds me of my niece and nephew, the 3rd and 2nd children of my brother. They don't even realize how much they love each other, and when their older brother is around, they're constantly sniping at each other. But without his jealousy-flaring presence, the younger two can play together for hours.


  4. Can't wait to see what Lucy schemes up - poor George....

  5. I too, am facinated by herd dynamics. I love to sit on my back porch and watch the antics of my gang. My middle two are the same way...just love to take swipes at each other every so often. :)

  6. Was what happened what I thought happened? If so, I imagine payback will be equally fragrant.

    Monty Python and The Holy Grail:

    French Soldier: I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper. I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.

  7. I don't know why, but since you changed your header, I want to sing the "Gilligan's Island" theme song, but with the names of your crew.

  8. I have to agree about the company of animals. But then again, we're animals too. Am I wrong to think the world would be a better place if we all reminded ourselves of that now and again...?

    I love the "facetail" photo. What accuracy!

  9. Well Lucy, you should know how George is by now and you shouldn't be sticking your nose where it doesn't belong :)

    I can identify with enjoying the company of animals more than humans at times... Mr. & Mrs. Cardinal and a hummingbird kept me entertained early this evening!

  10. There are times I wish I had a tail I could snap in others' faces. Go George!
