Tulips and Pirates

Recently, my younger daughter's orchestra performed the Pirates of the Caribbean theme in concert. I am not sure how many times I have heard my kids perform Pirates in concert (3? 4?), but it's always awesome. This song makes me wish I played cello.

Klaus Badelt looks so young, doesn't he?
If you have the Pirates soundtrack playing in your car, it feels like an adventure, no matter what you're doing.

There's no real link between the song and this photo of Penelopeep, except aforementioned child was also in "Into the Woods," and we gave her these tulips because she played Rapunzel and they matched her corn-yellow hair. Turns out, they also match Peep! :-) (It's appropriate that you can see a book that Peep has chewed on in the background. Peep has a tendency to do that...)

It is a lovely piece, and I love the picture of your sweet bird. I didn't know about her, little Penelopeep!

Penelopeep--so cute, but a librarian's second worst nightmare. The first worst nightmare is the library user who takes a library book to read in the bathtub and then drops it in the bubbly mess.

If you click here, you'll see the work of Peep's New Hampshire counterpart.

I know book-chewing is a serious offense, but your comment (and photo) made me laugh, Diane.
Fortunately, Peep has mostly only chewed our own homework, notebooks, and books (I think she chewed on a schoolbook once, sigh).

Peep is a lovely addition to your tulip bouquet! Gorgeous bird, despite her propensity to chew. =)
