The random post that wins the day;
Provides me with my new Zen-Ray
Binoculars that pave the way
For birding highs so I can say
I really saw that Garganey!

Well folks, my new bins, are now on their way,
For which I am grateful, courtesy Zen-Ray,
Some of you may wonder, why I'm still posting here,
So let me make it, Crystal-View clear,

For even though, I've only one set of eyes,
Little Eagle's had a daughter, to terrorise the skies,
Sometimes she roams way up high, and seldom comes down,
I'll need some higher powered bins, for the new girl in town,

Now these old eyes are a bit dodgy, and in need of a rest,
But add some glasses, and they're four of the best,
Although without my specs, I'm as blind as a bat,
Couldn't see the side of a barn, let alone a gnat,

So the 10 powers will need, plenty of ER,
As well as a Flat-Field, to see a pin-point star,
In the picaninny dawn, or days end twilight,
Vivid-Brite coatings, will be a delight,

When a falcon tears through, I'll need a Speed-Dial,
Especially if I hope to keep focus, for more than a while,
And if its dull n cloudy, I'll demand complete control of CA,
'Cause I don't want warholesque birds, to spoil my day,

A Swaro should be able, to do all of that,
But I ain't got a spare 2G, tucked under my hat,
So consider this an order, from the Cosmos to me,
I'm going to have to win, a PrimeHD,

I can feel 'em in my hands,
and I can see 'em now,
Dielectrically bright, big flat field of view,
Truly eye popping WOW,

Holy cow here they come, right on cue,
Lucky me, straight out of the blue!



Chosun

New bins would come in very handy in a week or two, when I hope to see huge flocks of birds.

Miffed at the forecast today for more snow, this weather is costing me, you know?
It'll ruin my plans this weekend, then I'll be back at work and round the bend.

The Winner

Everybody loves a winner,
And nobody wants to loo-oose,
But when it comes down to heads or tails,
It's Fate that gets to choose.

I don't mean you should give up,
But success has its price,
If you wanna drink from the Loving Cup
Be prepared for the sacrifi-iice
(success has it's price).

(there are more lyrics, but that's all I remember, I've got it registered. The song has a nice moving chord structure similar to the way Jim Croce used to play. I had him in mind when I wrote the song even though as a singer-songwriter himself, he wasn't likely to record it, and he died in '73.)

lyrics 1971 by Brock 'N Roll Muzak
