At sparrow's fart

No idea what let
29 members of the sparrow gang
from the cherry laurel vis-à-vis
suddenly invade this part of Seanhenge.

  1. Anyway, this brain of me comprehends the "sparrow" but not the "fart". Is 50% a pass?

    1. Hm, for example, the urban dictionary defines "at sparrow's fart" as "The earliest time of the morning. About the time when all the sparrows get up and let out a little fart signifying their awakening".

    2. Ah... a phrase I had never heard of.

    3. But I don't tend to rise from my bed until the much later time of day we might call "At Andrew's fart" (and often not even then).

    4. And now imagine me never having heard of and learned so many English phrases, idioms, vocabularies.
      Sometimes I do ask myself why I began blogging when after almost fourteen years there is almost no progress to be seen.
      Next moment I think of the few lovely friends I was allowed to meet, of so many different occasions we had great fun.
      So, feck off, lack of phrases, idioms and vocabularies. Cheers, all you wonderful friends, dead or alive.

    5. Ah!!! And thank you so much for teaching me a new idiom: Rising from bed at Andrew's fart.
      Sheer poetry.

    1. Ha ha, loveliest of all Lindas, how could I gainsay as "it's obvious". ;-)
