Big cocks and other birds at the Arboretum


While the glamour boys copped some rays


The young guns spread their pin feathers. "Hey baby, come back to my place? I've got a wine cooler with your name on it."


"Please baby, please baby, please baby."


"Are you a model? You look like a model. A super model. I've got the keys to my brother's car and my parents are out of town."







It was a beautiful day, but I don't think our little cock got lucky.

  1. I love that place... another is Descano Gardens.... Peacocks have a coolness that doesn't compare.. Its all their own... Their walk is their attitude, just like the attitude of Bogart, Garbo- that kind...class, man.

  2. The oldest trick in the book. Increase traffic by inserting the most popular search words into blog titles.

    Let me know how it works out Karin.

    If only the Arboretum had a booby. or two.

  3. Made me laugh. I remember those days quite fondly now. I recall the guys I knew being a little more subtle, though.

  4. Arboretum looks a beautiful place and the peacocks and ducks are gorgeous and colorful.

    The "romantic approach" make me smile.

  5. Hahaha!!! Thanks for the morning guffaw to get me going today Hiker!!!

    Years and years ago, when I was at the LA zoo, I got dive-bombed by a peacock!!! I was in one of the eating areas and the peacocks were as prolific as seagulls on a dock!!! Fortunately I ducked at just the right time!!!

  7. The women had eyes only for alpha male with the big tail. But top marks to little Randy for effort.

    That's a wonderful photo of the heron, you should show that off to the Audubon folks.

    Good grief, wv is piddums. A ruder version of diddums?

  9. Wayne, not much new traffic, just a couple of Canadians.

    But shameless is right. Never have I witnessed such an overt, poignant, but ineffective seduction. (Well wait, never? Seldom, that's the word I'm looking for.)

  16. Poor little desperate peacock. Like an acne-boy trying to get a cheerleader, with the football star standing by on the nearest bench.

  18. Then there was the little peacock who had just a few scattered long feathers. Looked like a kid showing off his first bit of facial hair. The girls couldn't get away from him fast enough.

  25. rotfl Earl!

    and Karin, you're just, on a roll!

    We've been chased by the peahens at the Arboretum. Annoying little turds!


    Recently, a octogenarian mother of a friend of ours died. We hadn't previously been to mom's house, but went to the shiva one evening. In Mom's den, were cocks of all kinds. Statues, photos, paintings and posters. We had no idea Mom had been so cock happy!

    wv: nonshlant--Mom was not so non-shlant about her cock obsession!

  30. I think it takes practice. Even when you have the keys to your brother's car. Unless it's a Mustang or Firebird. (Does my age show yet?)

  31. Somebody give Earl a pill or some peanut butter or something.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Peanut butter? Peanut butter? No, I won't ask; in this case, I prefer to preserve my childlike innocence.

    ReplyDelete
  33. peanut butter? wait, no, even *I* don't want to know! innocence my...well, anyway Karin...

    Marjie---you forgot Camaro, and sometimes it wasn't your brother's car! ;-O And no, no proof of age here!
