One day I was playing golf with my eldest son, who has become quite the accomplished golf player, when a strange occurence happened. My son had left half of a granola bar sitting in the buggy. A crow flew by, saw the granola bar and it looked good. It swept it away in it beak, packaging and all. My son missed the whole scene as I stood back bewildered.
He wouldn't believe the story (perhaps wondering if I had eaten it myself), until he himself witnessed the crow throwing the empty wrapper back at us.
"For once the crow outsmarts the fox" I giggled.
Minutes later we resumed our game. Just until..... a fox, believe it or not, walked right by us on the green! In Dubai, in broad daylight!
This was a small anecdote to wish my son a very happy birthday! He turns 10 today!
