The deck

My cocktail date turned into a sleepover away from Stan, so we didn’t get an opportunity to jump off the deck onto a deer’s back. When Jon and  Stan were in kindergarten together Jon’s mom told him he was no longer allowed to hang out with Stan. No one listened thank goodness.

Stan and I with no broken one jumped off the deck

A male Eastern Bluebird. I put sumac branches in pots on the deck to get around the "no food on the deck" rule.

A female Northern Cardinal and a Dark-eyed Junco.

  1. Good to hear…
    the real story is, did HE jump off the deck then? Lies and embellishments expected. :D
    Have a great week.

    Cute photos of the birds, and that’s a mighty pretty chick in the top photo, too. xo

  3. We FINALLY got a dusting of snow on Saturday that was gone by late morning Sunday. We don’t get much snow here but the weather folks are talking up a record for the least snowy winter as we normally receive a whopping 6 inches avg. each winter. Very glad to hear there were no injuries from deck-diving. Y’all (you guys) be carefull up there.

  4. Melissa did you notice Louie Louie has finally revealed a picture of the real Louie Louie that ain’t a hunnerd years old and taken before he got so old and broke down and even hairier with age?????
    I’m thinking he’s probably under some kind of surveillance just out of fear of all that hair.
    Love the shot of the fat cardinal and the cute pic of you and that wild man the deck jumper, BTW. Have a blessed week, dear. (And Louie Louie for gosh sake git a haircut and go to town for a bath.)

    • You are right, Rev. The pic is one day old, I showered late yesterday afternoon, and I will TRIM off the split ends one of these days.
