Here are a few more of our feathered friends.

Getting kind of crowded here.

 Me first! Me first! Me first! Me first!

Ooof! I hope I didn't break the landing gear.

 Bird bath!

 Hey, guys! Over here!

 The Royal Guard!

 Just follow Ma.

Fun --


A fifteen year-old boy came home with a new Chevrolet Avalanche and his parents began to yell and scream, "Where did you get that truck???!!!" He calmly told them, "I bought it today."

"With what money?" demanded his parents. They knew what a Chevrolet Avalanche costs.

"Well," said the boy, "this one cost me fifteen dollars. So the parents began to yell even louder. "Who would sell a truck like that for fifteen dollars?"

"It was the lady up the street," said the boy. “I don't know her name--they just moved in. She saw me ride past on my bike and asked me if I wanted to buy a Chevrolet Avalanche for fifteen dollars."

"Oh my goodness!," moaned the mother, "she must be a child abuser. Who knows what she will do next? John, you go right up there and see what's going on." So the boy's father walked up the street to the house where the lady lived and found her out in the yard calmly planting petunias! He introduced himself as the father of the boy to whom she had sold a new Chevrolet Avalanche for fifteen dollars and demanded to know why she did it.

"Well," she said, "this morning I got a phone call from my husband. I thought he was on a coffee break, but learned from a friend he had ran off to Hawaii with his mistress and doesn't intend to come back. He claimed he was stranded and asked me to sell his new Chevrolet Avalanche and send him the money. So I did."

  1. Love the photo of the hummingbirds especially! Thinking of getting a bird feeder for the back yard...there is one little hummingbird that likes to take a dip in my fountain.
