    1. He was definitely not Cherokee, more your actual Apache!

    2. This Cherokee thinks he's neither! He's a US paratrooper in WWII. :)

    2. He sat on Garden Girl's bench and scouted out the area for danger
      before diving. Smart bird!

    5. lol...

      Actually, I think you and Keith are misunderstanding. I'm not talking about the
      American Indian Geronimo. The bird is yelling it as he jumps, just like the US airmen
      did as they parachuted out of their planes during WWII.

    6. Ah . . . I see.
      Come to think of it as kids whenever we did something rather dangerous we always yelled out Geronimo. I see it now, yes . .
