The Monster Chorus

Kevin remarked a while ago that he might be creating a monster by feeding our visiting maggies. I think he has.

I was home alone this afternoon when they came to call. Just a few notes to let us know they were there. I ignored them. Then the phone rang and after I answered that, I went to look at our other call. Six maggies, five of them sitting on the outdoor setting chairs, and all of them staring hard at the kitchen window. They could obviously see me moving inside. I went and did something else and the calls increased in volume.

I think they gave me perhaps half an hour of warbling. It isn't hard to listen to, but it was VERY loud. Eventually they gave up.

It is a pity that they also leave their calling cards on the chairs.
