Carlton the Crow Counter

"Carlton the Crow Counter" is finished so I thought I would share. Carlton's job is to count each and every crow available for the Halloween season. He arranges their training schedules, vocal lessons, vacations, as well as their sick leave and retirement plans. He is adored by the crows so much that they even presented him with his own crow counting scepter. They recognized the many organizational skills inside that mushy seed-filled little head of his.

Carlton so loves Halloween he plans and arranges for the event year round. I met one of his little crow buddies on vacation at the Grand Canyon a few years ago and he was the first crow I ever saw fly upside down while letting out an, "Ah-ha," with each flip and roll he did. Now I realize Carlton must have had him in a special flight and vocal class. True story.

Have a great weekend!
