My neighbor has scarecrows
in her garden,
so crows come from all over
to feast their beady eyes on them.
The crows scare them,
and they run for cover.
That's why we call them scarecrows.
"I've seen a look in dogs' eyes, a quickly vanishing look
of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically
dogs think humans are nuts."
- John Steinbeck
