Nature, Feline Friday and Art at Shelley Lake

Today I thank

LLB friends

Jakey, Rosy and Sunny for hosting

First this most amazing photo of a Male Mallard Duck at Shelley Lake

The Mallard ducks or also known as
 Anatinae are a subfamily of the family Anatidae (swansgeese and ducks). Its surviving members are the dabbling ducks, which feed mainly at the surface rather than by diving

Recently there was a joint project with Sertoma  Arts Center at Shelley Lake and Poe Magnet Elementary student.
The student artist's name is in the lower left corner.
We saw these three on our trek along one of the many trials at Shelley Lake

Volume up please, thank you!
The close up of my furry tabby nephew Kat is off the charts wonderful.  Kat decided to try his paw at TikToc too!!

Auntie HiC did you know that squirrels are cheeky?
Love Rocky and Kat
Dearest Nephews I 100% agree about squirrels
I can see from the tip of your noses to the tip of your tails
you were excited!!  Uncle and I loved the music!!

The squirrels chatter at the cats! 😹
I know 2 kitties who will sleep well tonight and have squirrel dreams!
Proud feline Mom, Kit

Thoroughly Poetic and Thankful Thursday #57


Angel Sammy and Teddy find such inspiring photos for us

Here is today's inspiration

There is so much to see 
My Mind's Eye  decided 
to pick three.
Just how creative 
can I be.
Will pops of red catch my eye
Or the chandeliers hanging high?
Will dial tones
of the landlines from long ago
 ring in my ear ?
Will my fingers recall
the glee of learning to dial a 

 Today I am also joining

Words With Friends Wednesday

Thanks to our 

Dearest Auntie HiC

We were all lazing by the cozy fire when Mom loudly exclaimed, “Oh my goodness!”

We immediately assumed  something must be wrong, but she was excited about your 135 points word on Word with Friends!

Mom always says you’re her WWFBFF❣️
Way to go❣️❣️❣️

❤️  Kat, Pup, & Rocky

 Dearest fine furry nephews...your sweet Mom is my WWFBFF too.

Auntie's shout of glee was loud.
I showed uncle my board and where I scored!
He asked is Jess a word?  I said I don't know.  But watch I have an
instant dictionary here.  Yep "Jess is a short leather strap fastened around each leg of a
hawk.  Usually having a ring to which a leash is attached".
Uncle was impressed with the 135 points but especially with the magic dictionary.
Lovingly your auntie HiC and your Mom's WWFBFF
PS Auntie might be addicted to WWF...but at least there aren't any calories with this addiction.

Happy Tasty Tuesday: Anniversary deSSert

 THANK YOU all for your good wishes for our 52nd anniversary yesterday.

  We started celebrating on February 11th by ordering take out from Out Back Steak house.   It was delicious!!

On Tuesday February 9th, I happened to be watching the local news.  Lo and behold there was a very SWEET segment on Cape Fear Rum Cake Bakery.  It is located in Wilmington, NC.  I quickly ran to my desk top to check out their website.  My husband and I are both lovers of all things dark chocolate. They have so many flavors other than chocolate and even Gluten free. We ordered a Dark Chocolate Raspberry Rum cake for our anniversary deSSert.  I certainly wish I had a way for you all to have a taste of this most delicious cake and get a whiff of the sweet aroma of chocolate, raspberry and rum.  This one was 16oz. Which is enough for each of us to have two slices.  We will be ordering another one and probably larger in the future.  Click below to visit their website.
