It’s Time for…Kids’ Korner!

This week, Kids’ Korner brings us a question from Mandi Prudehomme, age 8, from Toulouse, France. She writes:

‘Dear Uncle Greg. Do birds have teeth?’

‘Hi Mandi and thank you for asking that wonderful question. No, birds do not have teeth. But it’s easy to see why you could become confused and think that birds have teeth. Several cartoon birds do have teeth. See the pictures below. But cartoon birds are not real birds. Real birds do hot have teeth.’

Bernie and Seidy: A Farewell

The San Vito Bird Club wishes to express our extreme sadness at the untimely and unexpected passing of our two wonderful neighbors and friends…Bernie (Bernard León La Duke) and Seidy (Seidy Sánchez Chaves). They will be sadly missed.

We will miss Bernie; a man of infinite energy, business acumen, generosity and good cheer. And on a personal note, I (Greg), will miss his glorious sense of fashion and style.

We will miss Seidy. Seidy of the laughing eyes. No one who ever visited Seidy’s Magic Garden of Teacup Chihuahuas ever left without an uplifted spirit and a wide smile!

Our most sincere regards and sympathy go out to their daughter Alicia. Alicia, please reach out to us as needed.
