    1. Thank you so much! That is quite a coincidence with the cock-of-the-rock being in your story. You see when I was a kid my father bought a set of Funk and Wagnal Encyclopedias one volume at a time from.the supermarket and in one of them, there was a full color plate of the cock-of-the-rock, and I just fell in love with the bird in the photo and it became one of my one of my ambitions to see one live in person which sadly I never did…..


  1. Hi Paul. Congratulations! I was so pleased you nominated me and it was quite the shock! lol
    Unfortunately and intentionally my blog is award free by choice. I must decline your nomination. Sorry Paul.
    Thank you 💜🌹
