ALton, IL -- Local Birder Bill Constable is leading a group of women and a couple of pairs of retirees to see local birds. Ducks and shore shore birds were out there today.
Of the troupe of birders, Muriel Hemingway is
almost certain that Bill is after one of the women. "Have you noticed how
he discourages unattached males from joining on our birding outings?"
Discussion at the ladies rest room at the Alton Lock and Dam museum focused on
the fact that all four of the women had ailing husbands. "I bet he goes
after the one of us that us becomes a widow first. We have been doing this five
years, and he will easily go another ten. Bill is only 62, my husband is nearly
70." Kathy Crosby noted that Bill had not actually made any amorous or
even friendly moves to any of them. "All he talks is birds. When sex comes
up, it is only of the nesting activities of the birds."
