Once More, With Feeling (But No Birds)

Greetings to all, it's me, Maggie!  Remember on Sunday I told you we took a real long walk somewhere we'd never been before?  Mom saw all kinds of great birds that got real close and struck poses for her and stuff -- most likely because her camera battery was totally out of gas.  We went back the next day - same time of day and everything - with a charged up camera battery, so Mom could get the bird shots she was after.  Want to see how it went?  Let's get walking!

Cammie checked out the sign for the shops we go by:

"We should stop by that little restaurant on the way home for a beverage.  And a flatbread.  And pears."

Mom said she didn't have any money on her.  She needs to start tucking her credit card into her pocket, don't you think?

We kept walking and walking:

"BIRDIE!"

That's my "I See a Robin" posture. Just trying to be helpful to my mom. She said we weren't after Robins. Whatever. Let's keep going!

"Let's go, Mags!"

"Right behind you, Cammie!"

When we got to the place with the caulking gun, I jumped up on the platform.  Mom said we should all sit and let her take a group picture.

I know!  Dad's not sitting!  Someone needs to brush up on his training, don't you think?

We got going again and before we knew it, we were at the new road where Mom had seen all the birdies. On this day? With the camera ready to go? No birdies. Well, I take that back - look behind me in this shot:

Can you see the guys between me and that house? Those are golfers out playing Colbert Hills Golf Course. There's a chance one of them got a birdie. Ha roo roo roo. A little golf humor.

We walked a little further, then we posed for this picture:

Once again, Dad did not "sit" when Mom said to. Hmm. Well, he didn't get any of the Zukes in Mom's pocket, either, so there you have it.

We went a bit further and found the End Of The Road.

"OOooh, check this out, Dad!!!"

Cammie and I thought we should strike a pose at The End of The Road, too:

Dad didn't get to be in that one. Probably because of his refusal to sit and all.

OK, let's head home!

I hope you enjoyed coming with us. I wonder how all the birdies knew Mom had her camera all set to go this time? One of life's great mysteries.

Yours sincerely,

  4. MOL! You girls are so funny! We're sorry your dad didn't cooperate for the photos but we enjoyed them all anyway!

  5. I bet those birdies deaded your momma's camera battery, then teased her by posing pawfectly. Watch out, they might've been trying to lure her away for more pictures and sabotaged your house when you were away!!! Sneaky birdies.

  7. We think you would make a very good monument. And you better start carrying your own backpack for your credit card.

  8. Your dad needs to go to obedience school. Not sitting twice in a row is Very Bad Behaviour.
