Mish Mash

I'm all better now.
Throwing up is the worst thing my stomach can do to me. I can remember every single time in my life that it's happened. I will spare you the list.
Let's look at some birds, shall we?

Sick male HOF
Uh oh. Another house finch with conjunctivitis.

Barely orange house finch
I don't think this is my favorite orangy house finch. But isn't he pitiful looking?
Where's the red, man? I'm going to look up plants with lots of carotenoids.
Looking up
The chickadee parents are super busy right now, feeding at least two wee mouths, and also getting enough food for themselves. Aren't you glad you aren't a bird? We can go stock up on food for 2 weeks if we want. Birds have to find it all day, every day. And they make time to sing. I think there's a lesson there.
We hit the dog park at Armleder today, and Isabelle found this little guy. Man, she is bug-crazy! She will pick up worms, pill bugs, centipedes, millipedes, beetles, anything that doesn't have a stinger. She draws the line at bees and wasps.
Pooped puppy
Nellie was plumb-tuckered out after the dog park.

Okay, a caption contest...I need captions for the following two pictures.
Have fun, guys!
Do I look like I am f ing amused

You better have some food

Buddha Says, "Pink is definitely not my color."

Powder says, "Okay, I'm ready for my close-up, the camera loves me!"

Buddha is saying "When I rule the world, you will pay. Oh, yes, you will."

Powder: "I let you photograph me, now open the can. Use the can opener."

Mary said...

Buddha: You have 5 seconds before I flip out.

Powder: I feel pretty, I'm so pretty...

Glad you are feeling better!

Please don't tell me she picks up spiders...I have a fear of them.

Dogs resting after a good romp makes me happy.

Buddha: "I am going to kill you. Now. You have embarrassed me for the LAST time. GET THIS HAT OFF OF MY HEAD!"

Powder: "You are getting sleepy....veeerrrrry sleepy...."

Juli said...

Buddha: "The things I put up with for free room & board!"

Powder: "Hello? Anybody in there?"

Reading your blog is one of the highlights of my day, especially since I'm stuck in an office.

I have heard that the conjunctivitis is a form of the birdpox?? Also love your orange housefinch! They are always fun to see!
