Who needs a hat?

3103 A long tail keeps away the heat (39 of 1)

WHEN IT’S HOT IT’S HOT, AND THE TAIL HELPS OUT A LOT. THE TAIL SERVES A LOT OF PURPOSES AND USING IT LIKE A BIT OF UMBRELLA TO GET A LITTLE SHADE IS AN AWESOME FEATURE OF THE TAIL.

I'm soooooo hot! (39 of 1)

SORRY THIS IS SO BLURRY, BUT THE SQUIRREL HAD TO RUN QUITE A DISTANCE TO FIND A COOL SHADY PATCH RELIEF FROM THE HEAT.

(I JUST REALIZED THIS IS IN ALL CAPS…sorry!)

It’s a bird! It’s a bird!

It’s an Evening Grosbeak!

While visiting our son in Montana, I spent some time sitting like a statue watching the bustling activity at their bird feeder.

There were two of these beauties peeking at me from behind the leaves of a lilac bush. Eventually they decided that I had no feathers OR wings, so I wasn’t a true threat and they popped into view.

Pretty!

 

Does This Look Like 85? Not To Me Either.

The birthday girl

If you’ve ever wondered where I got my love of fun, this image might give you a clue.

My mother will be eighty-five this week. That’s what her birth certificate indicates.

There is NO possible way that the birth certificate is telling the truth. 

I am older than my mother is, I’m sure of it. You will never convince me otherwise.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!
