Kickass whip-or-will

Kickass, the doorstop dog, said his keeper reports hearing a very brief whip-or-will call last evening, the first of the season.  It came at the end of a blustery Memorial Day when the world was beset with sounds of all kinds, many of them harsh and offensive.

So the keeper has decreed that he is now in his summer “selective listing” mode and may not hear pundits, protestors and politicians, but will be saving his hearing for classy things like the wonderfully repetitive call of the little brown bird somewhere over in the deep shadows of the wooded hill.
