Do I smell birthday cake?

Yes you do, Belle. It's your mom's birthday! Happy birthday, Shapeshifterbelly!

Our friend SSB likes the hummingbirds that visit her garden:

She grows her own veggies:

And she wouldn't say no to a glass of good wine:

Cheers, SSB!

Where are your glasses???

GrannyJ sent us this wicked joke. Thanks, GJ.

Yesterday my daughter e-mailed me again, asking why I didn't do something useful with my time.

“Like sitting around the pool and drinking wine is not a good thing?” I asked.

Lately, talking about my "doing-something-useful" seems to be her favorite topic of conversation.

She was "only thinking of me", she said and suggested that I go down to the Senior Center and hang out with the guys.

I did this and when I got home last night, I decided to play a prank on her.

I e-mailed her and told her that I had joined a Parachute Club.

She replied,  "Are you nuts?  You are 82 years old and now you're going to start jumping out of airplanes?"

I told her that I even got a Membership Card and e-mailed a copy to her.

She immediately telephoned me and yelled, "Good grief, Mom, where are your glasses??? This is a Membership to a Prostitute Club, not a Parachute Club."

"Oh man, I'm in trouble again,” I said, “I really don't know what to do. I signed up for five jumps a week!!"

The line went quiet. I think she fainted.

Monkey business

This short compilation was put together by a Spanish speaking person and text was added, but even if you don't understand it, it doesn't detract from the enjoyment of the video itself...

Boys meet girls

GrannyJ sent me some pictures of these "boy" flowers:

Then I saw these "girl" flowers on Facebook:

They go really well together, don't you think?

[Thank you, GJ!]

Dodgy weather

The weather has been very lively since last night. I'll leave you with a quick photo before pulling the plug again:

Sitting pretty

These photos were sent from View to MrsG, who replied:

"OMG - I love them all!  But that first one was "Freddy" the fox in Evergreen. He would curl up in my whiskey barrel in the winter when the plants had died....made a nice nest for him.  He didn't bother the living flowers. Kitties and boxes are like peas and carrots!  Did you send it to Regina? Thanks for the laugh!"  

Thank you, View and MrsG.
