The...Blackbird....

Jan and I...worked in the Airport hanger.... again... today....
sorting... and putting Amazingness.... together, for the sale...
We have several helpers... moving and lugging... along side us....
One... said...
"Oh...Barb..... what do we do...? "
I looked to see...what his eyes... had fallen upon....
it was.... pitiful.....
a little Blackbird... had fallen into a pan of oil... that had been used for the Planes....
oh my....
He was swimming it....
Saturated....
I Whisked him out... and my little friend and I... spent nearly an hour...carefully...cleaning the little bird.....
I called Jan and Mark.... who had left for lunch...just prior....
and said.... {Panicking..!!!}
"Get some Dawn Dish Soap!!! Now!!! "
Jan said... "What? I don't know any 'Don'...Who do you want me to Call??? " 
I said... "DAWN... DISH SOAP!!!! DISH SOAP!!!!"....
then...hung up....
We kept working on the little bird....
He was....Soaked to the skin....
from beak....to tail feathers.....
I am surprised... he didn't drown...in it....
Then... came Jan...and Mark....
Jan was Frantic....!
She thought someone was Dying!!!!
Had ordered food... then...yelled at the server... after my call....and said to 
"Cancel our Order!!!!!! There is an Emergency!!!!"
then...to find... it was all about... a Little... Blackbird... : )
she... rolled her eyes... 
I said... There Was!!!!
This Little Guy!
My friend and I,  gently bathed the little bird....
then put him in a box....with the Sun.... half on it.....
{I had held the Little bird, so long.... he wouldn't let go of my fingers... as I tried to set him... in the soft, blanketed... box, my friend had prepared for him... : ) }
Before long.... the little bird, was dry....with... clean feathers.... and I released him....
I Hope... he makes it... he seemed.... pretty Spunky.....
oh my...
my Gift... for the day....
the... little...
Blackbird. 
Love to ya...

I started reading this and thought a ceramic or plastic black bird had fallen in the oil and you were panicked because how would you sell it---I should have realized with your heart from the first letter you typed it had to be a real one. I love how the birdie held your finger...Even the birds in the sky know you have a heart of gold. Prep going well.
