Today, walking back from the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge through Broad Channel, we passed a row of houses, each of which seemed to have something to say. The first had a flag outside, and signs that declared
“Proud to be an American” and
“We support our troops”. A sign in the window of the next house announced
“We believe in angels.”
The garden of the third house was occupied by a long-haired gray cat approximately the size of a small sheep. A sign tacked to a fence post warned:
“Danger. Premises patrolled by an attack parrot”.
