I was a little surprised when I looked out the window, two days in a row, and saw a turkey strolling across the backyard. Apparently we are now on the official turkey trot trail! I even heard it singing a turkey song.
“These boots are made for walking,
and that’s just what they’ll do…
One of these days these boots,
are gonna walk all over you.”
Oops, sorry…I think that’s a Nancy Sinatra song. And turkeys don’t wear boots.
Have you ever been stuck in a closet?
It’s a question I thought I would posit.
Could you escape in a minute?
Or would you relax and stay in it
Writing to Shakespeare, a sonnet.
(Oliver asked me to tell you that he did get out of the closet very quickly and yes, I need to practice learning how to spell my last name.)
I MAY HAVE POSTED THESE IMAGES BEFORE…BUT I ENJOY THEM SO MUCH, THAT I WANTED TO DO IT AGAIN…DID I TELL YOU THE LAST TIME THAT I COULD HEAR THEIR CONVERSATION?
IT WENT LIKE THIS…
“MOM! MOM! MOM! MOM! HEY MOM!”
“I LOVE YOU MOM!”
“I LOVE YOU TOO, JUNIOR.”
JUNIOR IS VERY ATTACHED TO HIS MOTHER…
I’M NOT ALWAYS LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW INTO THE WOODS…A LOT OF MY IMAGES ARE FROM OTHER PLACES…FLORIDA FOR INSTANCE.
EGRETS ARE AMONG MY FAVORITE BIRDS TO WATCH AND PHOTOGRAPH, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT KIND OF CHARACTER YOU’RE GOING TO RUN INTO.
BIRDS AREN’T ALWAYS SITTING IN A TREE SINGING PRETTY SONGS, SOMETIMES THEY’RE BEING ORNERY. THIS LOOKS LIKE A CASE OF “ORNERY” TO ME.
A LONNNNGGG TIME AGO, MY MOTHER GAVE ME THIS BEAUTIFUL BOWL AS A WEDDING SHOWER GIFT. ON SPECIAL OCCASIONS I USE IT TO HOLD, OH…GIGANTIC SALADS OR BAGS AND BAGS OF CHIPS…IT’S THAT BIG!
WELL, LEAVING IT OUT INSTEAD OF STORING IT AWAY AFTER IT’S LAST USE WAS PERHAPS NOT MY BEST IDEA.
THANKS FOR THE BOWL MOM…WE SURE HAVE GOTTEN A LOT OF FUN OUT IT!
