frik and frak




they scurry about ~ ~ ~

running this way and that ~ ~ ~

up one limb ~ ~

down another ~ ~

jumping from one tree to the next...

they jostle,

they squib


suddenly pause for a wink,

then back at it again....   and again....   and again....



**We have a pair of these little guys (could be girls, or one of each)…..always together and always enjoying our trees and roof and deck….  I tried to get a photo of both but they are too, too quick.  We have named them Frik and Frak.  The one in the photo is Frak – I think… or could be Frik………

a feathered symphony


cheeps, tweets

squawks and caws…

coos, pecks

honks and quacks…

quite an ensemble of musicians

to awaken the senses ~

performing a melange of melodies

to accompany life’s many dances….

the roadside diner


right now it lies barren,

not much to attract the eyes


to a goose or a Sand Hill crane,

it is a buffet of delectable delights….


flocks of families and friends all come to gather

sharing stories and gossip alike ~

such as

“did you hear the scandalous tale about so-and-so and so-and-so?”


“anything exciting happen during your long, return flight?”


~ however ~

in only a few weeks,

this field will evolve

into something a bit different


not quite new …

still a tasty place to grab a quick bite


with an eclectic decor


a whole lots more to chew!!!




open 24 hours – all you can eat buffet…….

Weekly Pet Challenge – Post Walkee Pee


Post Walkie Bliss ~ ~ ~


Peyton offering up refreshment – from his prized water bottle.

a quickie note:  If you look really close, you may see the infamous ‘lone white whisker.”



“This is the life…..”

a quickie note:  The water bottle above was mine then became Peyton’s.  It was ‘the water bottle’ used when he hit his grand slam in baseball – many, many years ago, and present through countless soccer games, baseball games, running meets (my Ironman) – thus, becoming ‘the’ prized water bottle.



“Is this heaven because I think this is heaven…”

a quickie note:  She is so, so, so happy right now.


One last quickie note:  When we returned home, I told Peyton I would run his water bottle through the dishwasher – his response – “It’s okay, Sydnee is family.”  Mom’s response – “Yes, this is true, she is your sister.”

Weekly Pet Challenge – yes, at it again….


Incident report:  October 17, 2014, approximately 2:30pm



downstairs bathroom: one possibly two torn tissues


pee 2

“Excuse me Miss – what did you do in the powder room?”  “Please look at Mommy….”


pee 3

“Why are you smiling…have you nothing to say for yourself?”


What you do not see is big Pee (Sydnee’s brother Peyton) saying…”Ahhhh, she is just a little puppy.  Sydnee Pee is just trying to speak her mind….”

Mommy has one thing to say – “Really?”

Weekly Pet Challenge – Pee’s Puppee Cookees





Peyton (aka as Big Pee) in the kitchen.



dough rolled and ready to cut into shapes



cookies being placed on baking sheets



ready to rock and roll….i mean ready to rock and bake….


Yes, I know – you are wondering where is the ‘pet’ – this is a pet challenge after all, right?  Normally Pee is overseeing her brother in the kitchen, but this time she was lying in the sun on the deck.  I did try to get a picture of her eating a cookie – nope – she would not allow it.  So, I am resorting to another photo of Pee sleeping with me, since this is where she has been sleeping when big Pee has not been home…



Yes, mom is in the photo….
