Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," bringing you tragic news today ...
There will be no East Coast Vulture Festival in Wenonah this year.
I have not gotten the flurry of emails that I would have gotten in the past. I have not rented the vulture costume. This is a day that no one looked forward to more than me, and it is not to be.
My guess is that the vultures have moved on. Since Spare filmed "Momma Bird," it has been very hard to find the huge flocks of turkey and black vultures that were descending on the town in droves. I think it's that way with vultures. They stay awhile and then they go.
However, just because there's no East Coast Vulture Festival this year doesn't mean that we, yes we, you and I, can't create one!
"The Gods Are Bored" hereby declares Saturday, March 2 East Coast Vulture Day!
Contribute your favorite vulture pictures, stories, or comics to this blog, all to be published on March 2, 2013!
All you have to do is email your submission to luvbuzzards at yahoo dot-you-know-the-drill. That's me.
We can turn this happy space into a Vulture Day and have some laughs doing it!
Who is with me?
