A Happening On A Friday Morning…

…totally unplanned, nay, unexpected, in real – a light-hearted piece from theotheri, a blogger whose refreshingly different ways of looking at the familiar I enjoy reading:

The Other I

I have said before that it seems to me the older I get, the less predictable my days become.  Most of my plan for any day ends with the stipulation “barring the unexpected.”

But last weekend this took on a new dimension.  Most of the unexpected things in my life these days aren’t actually surprising.  They are mostly simply unplanned.  Like something breaks in the house, or a neighbour asks for help, or I get a phone call from a family member telling me about a doctor’s visit, or the rainstorm floods the drive and blows down a tree.

The surprise began on Friday morning when I went to prune the rose bushes.  There was our neighbour’s chicken, called Boudica*, energetically clucking around.  She’s gotten out before, and I’ve called the neighbour who comes over and, usually after a serious hour or so of hide and seek, eventually catches her…

This baby elephant is no chicken!! Didn’t wish to cross the road and confound humanity forever with why. But…

By Jordan Barnes For Mailonline

The funny collection of images were snapped by 57-year-old security officer Antonio da Cruz.

On a trip to South Africa’s Kruger Park he came across a small herd of elephants blocking the road.

‘We waited but after a few minutes of roadside grazing the females and other elephants moved into the roadside bush,’ he explained.

‘This little guy had been standing in the middle of the road and was determined to stay put.’

Ouch: The little elephant fell over head first before plonking himself on the road in a defiant show of resistance to authority

Go on without me: Photographer Antonio da Cruz said the adorable animal looked set to wait it out on the road as its mother ventured forth

Strop: Throwing his trunk into the air, the elephant gazed at its mother in the hope of getting her to stop walking

Antonio said when the mother moved into the bush the needy elephant ‘toppled forward onto his head’ before plonking onto the road in a defiant show of resistance to authority.

‘After flaying his legs, head and tail a few times he looked over at his mom and she then called his bluff by moving further away into the bush.

‘He quickly got up, gave us a stare and then chased after her!’

Okay, I’m up: Failing to fool the female elephant, the bothersome baby eventually gave up and got back to its feet.

Here’s a short clip shot on the ‘drama’:

Count Your Chickens…Always

The farmer’s son was returning from the market with the crate of chicken’s his father had entrusted to him, when all of a sudden the box fell and broke open.

Chickens scurried off in different directions, but the determined boy walked all over the neighborhood scooping up the wayward birds and returning them to the repaired crate. Hoping he had found them all, the boy reluctantly returned home, expecting the worst.

“Pa, the chickens got loose,” the boy confessed sadly.

Chicken bsantos
The father let out a growl.

The boy hastened: “but I managed to find them.”

The growl dropped by a half: “How many did you lose?”

“No, Pa, I got them all back, all twelve of them.”

There was silence and then

“Well, you did real good, son,” the farmer beamed. “You left with seven.”
