Good Morning Good People!

A stray...isn't he beautiful.

I hope this finds everyone doing well.

I spent the morning outside chopping bush branches -- I wore myself out. I have a couple of Rose-of-Sharon bushes, a lovely Rose bush, Morning Glories and of course my Four O'Clocks . The Hummingbirds really like the Four O'Clocks.

The neighbor kids were outside with the puppies, they all are just adorable.

There are stray cats running loose in the neighborhood. I feel bad for them. I wish people would just not get pets if they're not going to take of them.

Cats shouldn't be allowed to freely roam. Neither should dogs. Animals don't know any better and they depend on us to take care of them. I love animals so, I get irritated with people who mistreat them.

Never do I feed stray cats. Why? Well because when you leave food out other critters come to eat too.

Raccoons like cat food. The only problem with raccoons is they get into everything. They will tear up everything but, most importantly they do carry rabies. You don't want your family pets to come in contact with a rabid raccoon.

As a matter of fact you don't want your dog or cat to have a run in with a raccoon because they just might loose the battle.

But some people abandon their pets and that just pisses me off.

I think the cat above was abandoned because he's not afraid of people. So, that tells me he's been domesticated.

Poor thing looked hungry.

Hey, would you like a-cup-a-joe it'll warm you up. It got cold last night, down in the 50s. That's too cold for the end of August. I wonder if this means an early winter.

I sure hope this doesn't mean a bad winter-- I hate the cold.  

Football season's here...who are you rooting for?

Good Afternoon Folks

My hummingbird's favorite bush.
Why he's trying to get the nectar while the flower's closed is beyond me

Close  your mouths, I know you're shocked that I'm actually posting something to this blog.

I do apologize for my helter skelter blog posts.

Not to make excuses, well hell, yes I am. I've been under the weather over here around the corner from you.

I have such a laundry list of ailments but, I won't bother you with the details. Suffice it to say I'm up and running for now.

We've got new neighbors who've moved in. I must say I was a tad bit worried about who was moving in. This isn't an upscale neighborhood but we aren't slum ghetto either.

It only takes one family to move in and make a nicely quiet and pleasant street turn into hell on earth. So far the  new neighbors are quiet.

I always say a good neighbor is a neighbor you NEVER hear and rarely see. So far so good. 

I know I posted a picture of my hummingbirds in the previous post. I just wanted to add that I find it funny that my hummers seem to show up in August and September. I know that they'll migrate south at the middle of September or the end. So, I'm wondering where they've been June and July.

Oh, I forgot to mention: last month I was coming home from the store. When I turned down my street there was a swat team fully dressed staking out a neighbor's house.

Needless to say my mouth dropped open. I slowed down to a crawl  and wondered if I should duck.

Nothing happened, no gun shots, no people being dragged out and thrown to the ground.  I can't tell you what the hoopla was about we didn't see a thing.

Well that's it for now, till next time...

My hummingbird came to visit

Long time no blog.

Yes, I'm still here around the corner not to far from you.

I've been having medical issues which makes it kind of hard to keep up with my blogs.

I hope this finds everyone in good health and good spirits.

Here's some pics I hope you enjoy.

There's not much to tell at this moment but I will be checking in more frequently.
