A description of what started this particular blog can be found in its first entry --Feb. 9, 2009. It's about healing.
Ahhh! Kids are kids, no matter the species, it seems :)I like your poem, being myself both a kid (once) and a mom (always). Good capture by Norma.
0_Jenny, thank you. I've been a dad for 49 years, but in dreams my mother returns and gives me good counsel. Relayed your compliment to Norma --who is understandably sensitive to scenes like this.
this is lovely poem dear Geo goes incredibly well with image :)moms are so protective about their babies and this is why they prefer to stay near all the time
Dear Baili, thanks. The instinct of parental protection, and the rewards it brings, merits high on our mortal composition --and survival. It is part of love.
That looks like fun:)
Sure does, doesn't it Rick? Reminds me of sliding boards in playgrounds when I was little --parents there to keep other sliders from rearending me, and someone to care if I fell on my face.
I once watched a pair of crows taking turns skidding down a metal roof. Wildlife at play.
Dear Delores, We have lived across the south field from an olive orchard for many years and seen many flocks of crows. I figure by the racket they make, they must be having fun. I'm delighted they've discovered sliding boards.
Thank you for making me smiles today, friend Geo. Love, cat.
My pleasure, Cat.
… meant to send greetings from my cat Theo Thunderbutt as well … no worries bout da birds cuz he is an inside cat … smiles … c. https://youtu.be/Fo5RUhuoLO4
Thanks, Cat! I've put a clickable link to your "Theo Thunderbutt" clip under the poem.
wow geo I saw the exact same thing yesterday near our house here in florida...one mom, one baby wild turkey...interesting!
Either that turkey and her kid are touring the whole continent --Ca. to Fla.-- or this is something all wild turkeys are doing right now. I'm in favor of it.
Sweetness! I love the picture, and your words make it more endearing.Be of good cheer, my dear friend.
Thanks dear Robyn. I seem to recall wild turkeys in Bidwell Park. I hope Robin Hood left a few after the Errol Flynn flick was filmed there.
Please, say hello! I welcome your comments, thoughts, even criticisms!
