Cruise Night and Fledgling Robin  
Last night was cruise night here in the maple city. People with cars older than 20 can participate in it. My Uncle Charles has old cars so I went and sat with my Aunt Peggy, Dad and others from my Dad's family. I don't really give a crap about cars; I was mainly there for a quick visit with my relatives. I did see two very interesting cars. One looked like an old buggy, but the had painted it to look like it was wooden and they had fake stuffed roosters on the top of the roof. The other was a van which practically screamed "I'm from the sixties!" It had brilliant bold flowers all over the bottom half and the top half was robin's egg blue.

After leaving the old car parade Mom, Phil, Matt, and I went to Grandpa and Grandma's to take back the tiller. While there two birds flew into the window. :-o They were alright though.

Upon arriving home Mom noticed a bird perched on our wooden swing. It didn't move or fly away when we walked past it. It was dark, so I went inside to get a flashlight to check on the little bird. Shining the light on the bird told me that it was a fledgling robin. I carefully checked to make sure it wasn't hurt or stuck (it wasn't) and I went inside. It stayed there on the swing all night (I made a make-shift nest just in case the temperature dropped drastically and it wasn't able to fly up to its own nest) and I checked on it periodically until 4:30am which is when I was finally able to fall asleep. I woke up around ten and immediately went outside to check up on my little birdie friend. The little birdie was gone so I assume he (or maybe she) is alright.
