Another splash of paint

A little hard to hide those colors


There you are, Mr. Painted Bunting...

They say imitation is the highest form of flattery...





"Hey!  No photo-bombing my 'Homage to Stump!' performance!"

Linking up to Weekend Reflections

The blogger gods are smiling upon me...

Well, once again the line from "The Three Amigos" movie comes to mind:  "Would you say I have a plethora of presents?!"

Today I went to the mailbox and saw Santa had left a sack o' goodies for me at the gate (actually, the postman had put 3 packages into one garbage sack and lobbed it over the locked gate).

First:  I won my choice of a matted 8x10 photograph from Elise at One Woman, Reinvented.  After perusing all of her wonderful photos, I couldn't help myself.  I had to choose the one that screamed Texas, my homelife.  Beef cow, 2 calves in the grasses, bird on the fenceline.  It just called my name... TEX

Second:  I won maple syrup from Judy at daily yarns 'n more.  Sweet maple syrup harvested from their property in Wisconsin, my homeland.  WIS

Third:  I won a jar of  "kisses and ass smacks strawberry banana jam" from LB at Bullets and Biscuits.  Good golly, bring on the fresh baked rolls!!!  GIRL!
(don't you love the little heart the reflection made?)
Honestly, does life get any better than this?!  Living in Bloggerville definitely has its rewards!!!  Thank you, dear ladies, for your gifts!
Sweet, Sweet, Sweet!

My pretty copper penny in the morning sun



Yes, that is dried sweat and dirt on Zim's back.
No, I did not brush him last night.
Yes, it is summer.  It is hot.  It is Texas.

Even the squirrels utilize the bird bath on occasion






Just for sipping, though.

Warning: Photo overload on buff bathing Blue Jay



Look at this face plant!







Reminds me of a roadrunner.


Okay, I get it.  You're tough...

I like the single drop of water coming off his tail here.







He was just too darn cute, deciding if he should go for another dip...  (and he didn't!)

Cardinal, cowbird and critters




Looks like the squirrel's saying, "Send down more seed!"

Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed!







"Give me an "S"!"




"S"!  (backwards)





Are you pleading for mercy?  Have you reached maximum squirrel overload?  :)
