Jail Bird

A few years ago when B and I went to visit our friends Dana and Nate in North Carolina, we brought along this adorable stuffed bird to welcome their new baby boy.  It turns out their older daughter was the one who really bonded with the "Jail Bird."  Jail Bird became fast friends with Avonelle, who has crafted him bespoke outfits and clarified for the rest of us what makes him tick--who knew we both like the color red?  (I think there's a black-and-white joke in there somewhere...)  His beak may be a bit askew now, but let's celebrate how good the Jail Bird still looks after these years with Avie.  It's evidence enough that love keeps us young.

Right, Jail Bird?
