Your Photostudy tonight is of the Springy Thingys at Kates Cabin's Bird Sanctuary: My morning Crow, Earl the squirrel and a few Garden Delights pop quiz: Do You know what they are? My post is late (in real time) due to a significant Thunder Storm! Yes, finally, it did rain here. Real weird horizontal lightning and loud, booming thunders. As I know only about the weather what I see, I decided to bring us an update on Meteorology. I also found a Meteorologist who has a Google You Tube Channel. If You like what You see, be sure to sub his You Tube Channel when You get yours set up. I like to keep bringing many points of view to You. Everyone processes information very differently, so You decide what is good for You. Enjoy!
Eating crow is a U.S. colloquial idiom, meaning humiliation by admitting wrongness or having been proved wrong after taking a strong position. Crow is presumably foul-tasting in the same way that being proved wrong might be emotionally hard to swallow. The exact origin of the idiom is unknown, but it probably began with an American story published around 1850 about a slow-witted New York farmer. Eating crow is of a family of idioms having to do with eating and being proved incorrect, such as to "eat dirt" and to "eat your hat" (or shoe), all probably originating from "to eat one's words", which first appears in print in 1571 in one of John Calvin's tracts, on Psalm 62: “God eateth not his words when he hath once spoken”.
This is Earl. He is a squirrel.
