Water Volcano Becomes Winged Dinners' Bath
The water volcano in the MPL Courtyard has become a bathhouse for neighborhood winged dinners. If you have microscopic vision like Superman, you might be able to make out some of my feathered
meals friends dousing themselves in the drink. Scowl-Face took these photos from inside the Library, because, he said, he didn't want to go outside and scare-off the little fellas. I'm guessing he just wanted to remain in the air conditioning, which, frankly, hasn't been working all that well lately, at least in the Community Room.

(like that would help much)
Boss Lady says we should approach our patrons to see how we may assist them. Can do!
How may I help you, winged dinners?
(or is this a self-serve food bar?)
I like my din-dins nicely washed, I must say.

P.S. Thinking of winged dinner baths reminded moi of "Splish Splash" (1958), by Bobby Darin, who co-wrote the song on a bet with the famous New York City disc jockey "Murray the K" (Murray Kaufman). Murray bet that Darin couldn't compose a song that began with the lyrics, "Splish, splash, I was takin' a bath," which Murray's mother, Jean Kaufman, had suggested. Darin won. His single reached #3 on the U.S. pop singles charts. This recording may be one of the rare original 45 r.p.m. discs released with the echo effect. In any event, it's plenty loud. Those VU meters should not be hitting the red, dudes.
