All Aboard the Birdbrain Train

Splish, splash, I was takin’ a bath
Long about a Monday night
A rub dub, just relaxin’ in the tub
Thinkin’ everything was alright

When what to my ears did I hear?
Comin’ down the track in the rain?
Yellin’ come on, Bertie, is party time
Why, it’s the tea partiers on the birdbrain train

Well, I stepped out of the tub
I put my feet on the floor
I shook my tail feathers
and I headed for the door

There I saw da Mudder
Reelin’ with the feelin’
Movin’ and a-groovin’
A-wheelin’ and a-dealin’, yeah

Bing, bang, I saw the whole gang
Headed for Californ-iiii-aaaaa
Flip, flop they wuz doin’ the bop
In celebration of mom’s 75th birthday

I began a-rollin' and a-strollin'
reelin' with the feelin'
movin' and a-groovin'
splishin' and a-splashin', yeah!

Hey, tea partiers!  Are you a-movin' and a-groovin' this fine Tuesday?  Be sure to check out Mothermark's Teapot Tuesday story and challenge and come on board the Birdbrain Train!

My bird and flowers were colored with Twinkling H20s; the center of the flowers and dots on the bird's shower cap were colored with pretty purple Smooch Broom sent to me (thanks, Hilda!); the bird bath was paper-pieced with SU dp; the sky was watercolored with bashful blue; and the grass and flower stems were colored with reinkers and blender pen.  I applied Lavender glitter to my faux brads (1/4" circle punch).

Hope to see you at da tea party today!  Bertie is movin' and a-groovin' to the tunes and flingin' soap bubbles today, so you're guaranteed not to get hurt or dirty!

Thanks for the inspiration for my front-door card tomorrow -I'd forgotten about my birds in bath. They'd never get to CA even if I made the card today, but they'll do for someone's birthday.
What's this - Ms Bertie doesn't have a suitable penguin stamp for that darling dish in the IC on Saturday? I can't believe it!!
