Just comments about my art, kids, animals and the eccentricity of it all.

This pic has been circulating on Facebook, I hope nobody minds if I use it.

The dryer setting is truly the only thing normal about this household.

Yesterday we had a little Mallard hen in the duck's swimming pool she is gone this afternoon. Perhaps she made her way down to the canal, I wish she would have stayed.

While I was feeding mushy watermelon to the ducks, chickens and turkeys, Husbutt stepped outside, stared in amazement and then informed me I was poor white trash,  why yes, yes I am.

It has been blazing hot, but cools down beautifully in the evenings, the mountain air can get quite chilly, but during the day the birds are pretty miserable and mostly hide under all the bushes in the yard.  I don't think people realize just how many I really have in this little yard. Thank heavens.

Our tiny De'Uccle bantam rooster has started to crow, he is off kilter until he gets his song memorized and the adolescent tone matures, it is very very funny. He has such a tiny voice, perhaps we will be able to keep him, I don't think his voice carries past the  yard.
If only he would hold still long enough to get a decent picture.

Lately I have been so sad, deeply deeply sad and there is no reason for it. We are all well and happy, there are no excuses.  Perhaps I shall blame it on the heat.

 That large thing chomping through the water in the  picture above is not some strange aquatic creature but fat dog Rogue who bites the water as she swims.
 Not exactly svelte is she?
 Rogue and Tigger
Sparky, waiting for the rock to fall so he can bite the water splash.
It's his favorite game.  His full name is Spartacus Dream of Foxearth but we usually call him Pookie, they all get called Damnit occasionally.

need for a NoVacancy sign

In May, we had a excess of chickens, then my bathroom was infested with small ducks, now I have magpies on the chandelier.  Isn't there a spray for that?
