A Wild Backyard
So I'm sitting here peacefully reading mean jean's blog and wondering if those stairs are in her house when Molly runs past me hysterical and starts barking at the back door.
The chickens are out. I run to the door and see a hawk sitting on top of the aviary.
Our rooster Elle is standing in the open growling and no chickens are in site. I make pow pow sounds and wave my hands while Molly keeps barking. (I didn't let her out.) The hawk won't leave.
I jump up and down, then look at the sky as a great blue heron flies right over the garage. EEK! They eat koi. I scream into the house for Jon, who's watching "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" and he rushes out. As soon as the hawk sees him he flies off. The heron is gone, and not at the fish pond. The chickens are hiding motionless in the bushes.
Wasn't it amazing that Molly knew the chickens were in danger?
I took these pictures with the cel phone camera, figured out about micro sd chips. Color above straight out of the camera. Guess the backyard action got me a little overheated.
How do you like my new look?
My mother bought this wig at B.Altman's in the 60's. It always looked becoming on her. The label says "Kenneth Comfortable Wig" . You can see the wig had fancy construction. I think Dinah will enjoy it.
But let's face it- this wig was meant for Molly.
