Squawk, Squawk, Squawk is FREE!

We have some delightful guests staying here with us. They let us know around 1pm yesterday that there was a bird stuck in our chimney. We could hear him squawking, pecking and moving around in there!! The guest told us to remove the circular cover on the side of the chimney and hold up a bag for the bird to fly into!! We did not have luck for the first 14 hours or so- other guests tried putting their hands in to get it, we tried scaring him out by tapping on the chimney, the electric insert, we tried baiting the bird with bread- to no avail! This morning, around 9am, after checking the living room all morning, Emily goes into the living room when she gets here and says, "Are you just going to leave him in the bag??" Jessica and I were soooo excited that he had come out and he couldn't have been in the back for too long,because we had just checked at 8:30! We took him outside and released him. He was happy to be free!! I am happy that he is free and that he's not in there squawk, squawk, squawking anymore!

Wrong Way!!

After watching this truck painfully turn right onto Mulberry Street the other night, almost taking out our Old Brick Inn sign, we find out that he was headed to Higgins & Spencer!! He passed it almost a mile ago! I was sitting there wondering- "where in the world is he going down here?" These pictures are from him backing up after realizing he wasn't in the right place. I wish I had pictures of him trying to make the turn!

Great Parents!!

We had a delightful couple here in our Bird of Paradise Cottage the last few days whom we just absolutely loved chatting with. They were on a two night getaway while his mother was home with their son. The incredible things I learned from them about food allergies and how real they are were very enlightening. It's crazy to think that eating something or even the smell of frothy milk at Starbucks could cost their child his life. They have totally changed their lifestyles, eating habits, kitchen organization and more, just so their son can live a happy, healthy life. We were amazed at their story and hope they'll come back soon!!
