Romeo the Roo

 Meet Romeo.
   Romeo is looking for his Juliet.
    But he is looking in ALL THE WRONG places.
   Because, he seems to be a bit confused about who he is.....exactly.

   Romeo is hanging out with the wrong crowd, they make him do things that he   doesn't feel quite comfortable with------ Like messing about in all that mud,
 singing in the rain,
 partying into the wee hours of the night.....in the cattails.

     When the gang is splashing in the pond, Romeo stares wistfully from the bank, wondering why he can't swim. And, IF he could swim, why  he would even WANT to.
  And just a couple hundred yards away, prettily playing "ring around the rosy", are all these lovely unattached honeys....just waiting for their very own  Romeo.

                                 but they are looking in
How will it all end? I bet William Shakespeare would know.

  9. I'm so glad I visited this morning. Romeo's story of confused love made me smile. This is such an enchantgin place.

  10. Jeri, what a cute post! There is hope, however... we had a female mallard duck named Pete, who thought she was a goat. She did eventually find herself, though, and took up with a very dashing wild male mallard. And flew the coop!

  11. So, there is a chance of happiness for handsome Romeo, I remain ever hopeful!
