Matching Bows.






 Issa, " We just came back from the dog groomer's!"







 Issa , " There was a new groomer there who thought Duffy and I were the cutest GIRLS he'd ever seen! I think he meant GIRL since I alone am a girl!"








 Issa , " He gave us matching pink bows!"
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Issa , " I think I look very sophisticated in my pink bow."







 Duffy , " I got a pink bow too!"







 Duffy, " Wait a second! Did Issa just say the new apprentice groomer thought we were GIRLS?! But I'm a BOY!!"








Duffy, " Oh well! I might as well go with it. I look rather dapper in pink , if I do say so myself!! "

Rain.






Malou , " Every time I look out the window I see rain. It doesn't matter which window I look through.I see. Rain."







 Malou , " LP painted this little wagon red and planted some annuals in it to cheer us up. I can see it through the rain when I look out the cottage window."








Malou , " But how am I supposed to play, Pretend Stalk and Release those Tasty Little Birdies , with a little red wagon? I need BIRDS! But the rain is forcing them into hiding!! Rain, rain. Please go away!! I am going crackerjax with boredom!"







Have a great day!

Pillow Talk.





 
 Malou , " What is up with all these pillows? Where is a girl supposed to rest her cute, little, furry assets?"

Levon , " What pillows?"








Malou , " Luckily I can make myself at home on just about anything!"
 
Levon , " My eyelids are burning to a close I'm so sleepy!"
 
 
 
 
 
 


Malou , " There is nothing like a cat on a cosy chair, wouldn't you agree?!"

Levon, " Or a lion in his lair. That would be me!"








 Malou , " YAWN! I'm getting sleepy now.

Levon, " Is that a bug I see on the floor?"








Malou , " ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz."
 
Levon , " ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz."

The Back of My Head.







Esme , " I was lying on Lambie enjoying a dollop of sun when LP suddenly barged into the room and ruined my quiet time!"







 Esme , " She started grabbing at me! She claimed she needed to clean the gunkies from my eyes and that she also needed to clean my ears!"








 Esme , " I ducked behind Lambie every time her hands came near me and then I stuck my tongue out at her!"








 Esme , " If you biggify you will see my tongue. It is teeny tiny because I am teeny tiny! But if you strain your eyes (but don't go blind!) you will see it."









Esme , " Of course that didn't work so I had to give her the back of my head ( until she eventually caught me and cleaned me but good! Argh.Nothing works when she gets in that cleaning mode! ).












Have a Terrific Tuesday!
See you soon.

Friday in the Park.







                                               *Click to biggify photos if you like.*
 Issa and Duffy,  " We went to the park to feed the ducks at the marsh."









Issa , " Maybe if I sit pretty , Daddyman will give me some of that bird seed! "









Duffy , " Can you spot the Mallard duck through the reeds?"






Male Mallard Duck.





                                                          Female Mallard Duck.







                                                     Mama with her ducklings.













 Issa and Duffy, " Even this Canada Goose showed up for some yummy seeds."







Issa and Duffy, " As did this Red-Winged Blackbird! "








Issa , " And then just as we were leaving the park, two things appeared to make our smiles even wider."







Issa , " Her name is Sadie and she is ten weeks old! "







Sadie , " I am a Bernese Mountain dog out on my first big adventure! "








Issa , " The second thing that made our smiles broaden was this butterfly. It landed at our feet and momentarily paused , then gently flew away on wings of gossamer."










Have a Fabulous Friday and weekend!
We hope Nature surprises you with a few gifts today.
