New Bird Feeder

Glen and I bought a new bird feeder not too long ago. We can put both seed and suet in it, which is kind of handy. We haven’t had a lot of bird traffic yet. Yesterday our cat Lilly alerted me to a gorgeous little downy woodpecker. I got the camera, got it focused perfectly….

And it flew off the second before I took the picture. My next attempt was not much better. It’s like the birds are taunting me.

You can’t tell from the picture, but it was a female cardinal. She has a nice tail :-/

Stinky Possum

Our ever watchful dog, Lucy, caught yet another possum. This time however, the possum was covered in some kind of really stinky goo that Lucy thought smelled fantastic. She thought it was so fantastic that she rubbed the possum all over herself and licked the poor thing almost clean. Notice the possum is quite wet from all the dog slobber, but some goo is still on its face. Needless to say, Lucy got a bath pronto while we let the possum make its escape.

Love is a warm fuzzy blanket

Glen and I both wanted a lovie kitty. Sadie is lovie, as long as it involves a warm fuzzy blanket.

Looks like Dinner

Sadie checking to see how big Lila is to see if she will fit in the roasting pan.

In all honesty, we have to watch Sadie like a hawk to make sure she doesn’t actually harm the birds when they are out of their cage. We also must make sure that Lila doesn’t maim the cat because she is just that vicious.

Tug of War

Glen bought new toys for James and Lucy. Hopefully these will last longer than the old ones.

Snuggling

I hope that whoever adopts James, our foster dog, loves to snuggle. He must be as close to you as he can possibly get.

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
