Bird’s got out of the cage today.

Someone likes blue.
Nice "birds".

A few years ago. I was sitting at my vet waiting on my little dog having her teeth cleaned.
This younger woman was having trouble with a big active hound puppy.
Every few seconds the dog would bay and she was trying to pay.
So I offered to hold the dog outside the building glass while she paid. (Could still see inside the vet office.)

When she came out door we talked and I was informed it was a blue tick, she had gotten the dog over in Alabama and had named it "Dixie".
I said:
"Wait. You have a blue tick hound named Dixie ? Have you ever heard the song "Baby Blue" by Badfinger? The girl is named Dixie"

Of course, being younger and maybe in her 40s, she had not heard the song.
I looked it up on my phone to show her and found it was used as the closing song on Breaking Bad. (Which I've never watched.)
All true.
What a coincidence, huh?
Baby Blue
Song by Badfinger

Guess I got what I deserved
Kept you waiting there too long, my love
All that time, without a word
Did you really think that I'd forget
And regret
The special love I have for you
My baby blue
All those days became so long
Did you really think I'd do you wrong?
Dixie, when I let you go
Thought you'd realize I would know
I would show
The special love I have for you
My baby blue
What can I do? What can I say?
Except I want you by my side
How can I show you? Show me the way
Don't you know the times I've tried?
Guess that's all I have to say
Except the feeling just grows stronger everyday
Just one thing before I go
Take good care, baby, let me know
Let it grow
The special love you have for me
My Dixie dear
