Sun coming thru it cast a beautiful shadow on the floor

Dearest Auntie HiC

 Dad puts out a tray of birdseed for the squirrels everyday, and I’ve gotten chummy with one of them. 

“Hey, Skippy, what’s up, besides your tail?”  😹😹😹

I got Skippy good with this riddle:

A monkey, a squirrel, and a bird were racing to the top of the coconut tree. Who will get to the banana first; the monkey, the squirrel, or the bird? 

Of course, Skippy guessed the squirrel. 🐿️ 

Wrong! The correct answer is none of them, because you can’t get a banana from a coconut tree!

That cracked him up!!! 😹

Hugs and cuddles from Rocky your Ginger Nephew

MOL MOL MOL Rocky Skippy has a wild and squirrely laugh.
I can tell he totally enjoyed your riddle
Hugs and love Auntie HiC

While waiting for a brisk Spring breeze

Happy..Funny.. Tuesday with Kat and Rocky


Thank you to our

You won’t believe what just witnessed! 🙀

My adorable Ginger Brother from another mother has a drinkin' problem

I’m not sure how to react, so I’m asking for help from our Blog Family!

When I saw Rocky with his head in the toilet, I assumed the poor, little fellow must be sick, as I’ve observed Mom in a similar position when she had tummy virus. 🤮

Then I realized, he was DRINKING FROM THE TOILET!!!🥴

 We have 2 automatic water fountains, and Mom turns on faucets for us whenever we meow for it. 

Apparently, Rocky prefers his water from a porcelain throne! 
Mom only use natural cleaning products (lots of vinegar & baking soda) here. Nothing toxic to pets,so no worries! 

I’m still embarrassed by his behavior! 😹 Do any of our blogger Furiends do this? 
Mom had suspicions this was going on, 'casue many times she has encountered wetTness on the loo seat.

Lovingly Kat who keeps his paws on dry ground.

Dearest Kat and Rocky

Mol mol mol Auntie is 🙀😹speechless and giggling 🤣🤣too.  ROCKY
WAS THERE A GECKO IN NEED OF F(eline)CPR. Good thing your daggers had a tight don’t want to take a dip in the loo.
Oh my this is such a fun email  and I bet you will get lots of fun stories of others doing it too.  PS at least Rocky doesn't leave the seat lid up
Lovingly Auntie Hic

Our neighborhood is full of puppies walking their people
These two minature Dachshunds both rescues living their best lives
They are vertically challenged but they both have a spring in their step.

 I see this couple most every day.  They always walk two very  active Labradoodles...seen walking with their mom.
Recently I saw Dad with a new one.  I said oh you have three now.
she replied it is a long story but YES

Easter Sunday decidated to Hootin' Anni my friend.

Anni loved flowers and birds...

Ernie and Lana, sent me a photo of their Daffies that are blooming just in time for Easter. 

They are perfect for today's post to Anni.

Today I would like to dedicate this post to Hootin' Anni.
She was one of my first blogging friends in 2009.  We shared a love of felines, birding and music.  In September 2023, her original blog, Hootin' Anni, was closed permanetly. It was replaced by  Kolors of the Wynd.  There was one post on the new blog.  Anni told us she suffered a stroke in May of 2023 and was receiving at home Physical Rehab.  Since September, I have been dropping by Kolors of the Wynd to say hi to Anni and Bud.

Yesterday, Saturday March 30, 2024,  I received this email from Anni's nephew:

"As Anni's relative who followed her blog, I wanted to inform you of her passing last Ocotober.
I am so sorry to inform you this way but I wanted to let you know none the less.
She was a great Aunt to me and I will miss her laugh, creativity and photography.
Best to you,"

  I did not know him. He found me thru my blog address.  I appreciate  that he took the time to find me.  
Anni was a devoted wife, mom, grandmother, sister, and aunt.  She was a self taught artist, photographer, birder, avid gardner and walker. 
She loved Halloween.
She taught me so much about blogging, birding and writing. 

Anni made this beautiful black and white photo of Madi.

She was kind and thoughtful
I will always remember her fondly.💟
