The Constitution was far to long...so I stuck with the DofI and...I spent a long time on it actually...because it reads better in the head then it does out loud.
If you get bored...in the first moment you may watch the fly that buzzes around the room behind me...you can laugh at my 5 major mistakes...cookies for those the can point them out...and in the end Jens the Budgie decides to start singing before I've finished
Half a mile out to sea and in rough weather, it was the last thing the members of the diving club expected to see.
There, being thrown about helplessly on the waves, was a little blue budgerigar.
Bedraggled, half drowned and too tired to fly, it seemed it would not be long before he was heading to the great bird cage in the sky.
Pausing only to wonder what on earth he was doing so far from land, the divers turned their boat round and after three passes eventually managed to pluck him from the waves.
And yesterday the bird, nicknamed Captain by his rescuers, was looking full of bounce as he recovered at an animal shelter.
"Be of good comfort, Master Ridley, and play the man! We shall this day light such a candle, by God's grace, in England, as I trust shall never be put out."
