My very young, but smart, granddaughter and I had quite a conversation the other day.
They make a comeback from the attic every fall.
The little one wanted to know why they are called "scarecrows" when, after all, they are happy, not scary.
"But Grammie, the kids are happy and should not be called 'scarecrows.' "
The voice of reason was heard.
The "kids" were immediately renamed the "happy crow kids."
DON'T YOU JUST LOVE THE WISDOM OF CHILDREN?
