Really? You missed that shot? REALLY???
Or so he seemed to be saying, with his little crest raised and his button-eyes wide. One of about 10 tufted titmice in the garden, all laughing at me.
The missed shot... a gorgeous big yellow-shafted flicker sitting right on top of one of the cherry trees, not 15 feet from the kitchen window. And I wasn't able to grab my camera quick enough to get a shot. I don't often see them near the house and never at my feeders (unlike some other lucky folks here) and I have never gotten a good shot of one. Never. Did I say...never?
A blustery, cold day - most unpleasant and had me longing to be back in Arizona. However, next week the temps will be well into the 70's so I really
can't shouldn't complain. Tomorrow, two of my besties are coming out for the weekend - a belated celebration of Peg's birthday. It promises to be a grand time and the only thing missing will be our fourth member, Ellen, who is away on a business trip. Next time.
Missed visiting MIL today - massive sinus headache had me in bed for a couple of hours. Weather changes wreak havoc with my head.
Thanks for keeping Scooby up near the top of the Popular Page - of course, his demands are now totally beyond the pale...
