Oops, No Friday Food Pics
In the above photo, the sweet little banty hen had just finished cleaning the dogfood scraps out of Flounder's bowl. He missed most of that as he was ... cleaning himself. At this point, he's come up for air and realized that this chicken may be trying to steal his tennis ball. I can tell from his expression that he is considering a warning bark, but at 11, it's such an effort.
(Disclaimer: This is the messy doggy end of the porch, we are refinishing the wood this summer ... I promise.)
See for yourself. This shot was taken after the rolling and trimming in blue, but we had not yet done the cream porch posts and trim. That big window to the left of the porch was my childhood bedroom. Mom loves her fresh air, so we grew up with out airconditioning, a fact I am very happy for now. I think it contributed to my gnarly toughness and extreme tolerance for heat and humidity. They did get A/C about 8 years ago, so my delicate children and their Grandpa (who lobbied unsuccessfully for A/C back in the '60's) are happy.
We kept a close eye on them. So far nothing has turned up missing.
