Week # 7

“Get ready for some action,” said the Doctor.

For those of you that have been with us for more than a year, you will remember this time last year when Tweedy, a single day from taking flight, was tossed into the sea by hurricane Arthur.

O & H’s platform was snapped in half.

It lay in the water like a wounded soldier, gasping for air, trying not to drown with the incoming tide.

If not for the heroic all night struggle to save Tweedy, he would’ve drowned. Never underestimate the will parents have to protect and save their children.



Somber but optimistic, Harriett’s H. sapien friends raised her platform. Without their effort O & H’s platform would have disintegrated and washed away, leaving no trace of their home.  Just like the Red Channel Marker 4 years ago, their home would have disappeared. Disappeared into the Avian unknown.  Ozzie remembers the experience with near panic anxiety.
