If you have photos of trios (people, animals, flowers, things, or art) why not share them with us on Thursday Trios. Just copy the link here and paste it into your post and I’ll get a pingback. I’ll be sure to respond.

A Busy Day at the Feeder

the day before our first big snowfall

Birds and squirrels must know when they need to stock up on their food intake. It was a crazy day at the bird feeder and between the birds and the tree rats (my husband’s name for squirrels) the feeder and seeds around the feeder quickly disappeared.

Sunday Stills: Fur and Feathers

….thanks to Terri from Second Wind Leisure for hosting Sunday Stills https://secondwindleisure.com/2021/11/07/sunday-stills-fur-tastic-paws-and-birds-of-a-feather/

With the time change Frances’ schedule is all out of whack today. When she started to cry at 4:00 this afternoon I couldn’t figure out why and then I realized that her internal clock was telling her it was dinner time. I decided to distract her a bit and I took her for a walk for as long and far as she would let me. As she approaches 15 years of age her walks are getting shorter all the time.
