Waiting for Acme Manufacturing


We woke up this morning and there was a roadrunner in our back yard. This doesn’t bother me any more-I’ve learned that I’m not going to catch a bird. The roadrunner can fly but I couldn’t even catch him on the ground-they’re fast and quick.We forgot to ask what he was doing in our back yard. Perhaps the turtle statue was going to deliver a package for Wiley Coyote from the Acme Manufacturing Company but it was way too early for deliveries.

  3. To beep or not to beep, that’s the question…I never saw such a bird. (It’s a bird, right?) and I wonder why he has no name. All Looney tunes have a name, only the road runner is just the road runner… I hope Wile E.Coyote has fun with this balls.

  4. I love this post and it made me smile. Yes, roadrunners are fast. Very fast.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

  5. A real roadrunner!?! Kyla that is something not even my Momz has seen…bet it’s more fun to chase than my silly ducks

  6. A roadrunner, did he have a number assigned, was he in a road race, never seen one, if they are that fast probably never will, oh well. Barharhar, a case of exploding tennis balls, bet Bites could go over the moon with those!


  7. That is too funny!!!! Wiley is actually one of my favorites…Thank you for the smile!!!!

  8. Hope Wiley didn’t want his package in a hurry!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  9. I can’t escape the roadrunner. My college and the school I currently work at both have the roadrunner as a mascot. Glad you didn’t exhaust yourself on that guy. Hope you some green beans for having self control. If not, maybe Acme will deliver some for you.
