Waiting for Dinner

"Where's my waitress?"
This handsome hawk is sitting in my bird feeder apparently waiting for some unsuspecting prey.
I've never seen one get this close. Usually they're up in a nearby tree.
But, lucky for my little regulars, no one ended up being first course.

Dead Bug

I have no words.
Thanks, Bill.
But, now that I think about it, it looks like he saw one of his relatives
 in the dictionary and passed out.

Tag Tuesday

Anybody remember Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons?
But then, the car does look like cherry candy, too!
Go back in time. Listen to "Candy Girl" here.

Memorial Day 2013

In memory of those who have served.
So that we would remain free.

Doolittle Raid, Japan, April 18, 1942.

The "Peachy Keene" Cocktail

I've become interested with mixing cocktails lately.
After mixing some of the classics, I tried my hand at creating my own drink.
I developed a refreshing cocktail that I call The Peachy Keene.

Here it is:
2 Parts Cruzan Aged Rum (Amber)
1 Part Peach Vodka (I made my own)
1/2 Part Sweet Vermouth
Several dashes of Peach Bitters
Chill a cocktail glass. Mix all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Strain into cocktail glass and garnish with a peach slice and maybe a maraschino cherry. (I used an orange since peaches weren't ripe yet)

Sky Friday

I didn't have a good picture of the sky, so here's my breakfast!
Those bloody marys go down so smooth...

Daredevil Kayakers

On an island that forms during the dry season
three daredevil kayakers look over the precipice of Victoria Falls, Zambia Africa.

The Penis Building

With all the penis fixation about yesterday's post,
which happened to be NM Bill's finger,
Mike L. sends us the new headquarters of 
the Peoples Daily Communist propaganda newspaper.
My, what a big one!

Sky Friday

Ride 'em cowboy!
Looks like a rodeo rider trying to stay on a bunny for eight seconds!

Bird Wednesday

This little House Wren is back again.
She's singing her heart out.
It's hard to imagine that such a tiny bird can sing so loud!

Bird Tuesday

White Crowned Sparrow looking out.
There seems to be an entire "family" of them at Rest Stop Gianni.
I've counted a dozen or so at one time!

"Today Is A Day That Is Filled With Surprises..."

"... Nobody knows what's going to happen..."
(If you're old enough to know,
that's a lyric from the Mickey Mouse Club)
"You might see an elephant walking on the moon..."

Or in this case in a delivery truck, spotted by Mike L. in Texas!
It's actually painted on the side of the truck.
