Fly Over

Living where we do, we often times have aircraft from Whiteman Airforce Base flying over our house.



I bought dog food and Lilly thought the empty bags smelled good enough to investigate.




Lilly:  I’m on the sofa with you Lucy.  Whatcha gonna do about it?


Lucy:  I shouldn’t have to put up with this kind of torment!

Washed Out

Glen went out hiking with a friend and took some pictures of an unfortunate tree facing adversity.  It was rooted into the dike of a pond, and as you can see, the pond washed out under the tree.

My what big teeth you have


Brown Thrasher

This is one of the many birds that visited during the snow and extreme cold weather.   This is a Brown Thrasher, which is in the same family as Mockingbirds. 





Our pretty, but vicious, Eclectus has been plucking her feathers.  I have had her for eleven years and we have been struggling to figure out why she started plucking about two years ago. 


Here she is having a bit out out time with Glen.  We keep telling her that “naked” birdies get cold without their pretty feathers, but she won’t listen to us.  On a good note, she has decided that Glen is now trustworthy and will step up for him.  That is a HUGE milestone for her because she hates men. 

Suet, it does a body good

Here are some more pictures that Glen was able to get.  That same elusive red bellied woodpecker posed nicely for him.




Eluding Me

I was on the evening shift during our latest snow/super cold event so I had mornings to sit and drink my coffee, (decaf 😦 ), and bird watch.  There was a red bellied woodpecker that would show up everyday, and as soon as I would get the camera focused in, it would take off.  I was never able to get its picture.  Glen, on the other hand, snapped these…….this bird is totally not playing fair.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
