Here We Come, Walking Down The Street

Another pleasant valley Sunday,
Charcoal burning everywhere,
Rows of houses that are all the same,
And no one seems to care.

See Mrs. Gray, she's proud today
Because her roses are in bloom,
And Mr. Green, he's so serene,
He's got a TV in every room.

Another pleasant valley Sunday,
Here in Status Symbol Land

It's Thursday and time to play a little music. Visit Hootin' Anni's Thursday Theme Song for more.

PS, That's not our house and not our Lamborghini, both were seen in other parts of town. The rose however is from our yard.

Summer's End

It may be officially autumn now but here it still looks a lot like summer. These photos were taken last week.

Mr. Muscovy duck is enjoying the last of the warm weather before the cool October winds arrive.

For more watery outdoor photos please visit Watery Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday.

Uh oh, somebody's gonna get in trouble.

Oh No! You didn't!

Did you?

Don't look at me, I'm just playin' with my mousie. He did it!

Who? Me?

Painting With Sunshine

I need to laugh and when the sun is out
I've got something I can laugh about
I feel good in a special way
I'm in love and it's a sunny day

Good Day Sunshine, Good Day Sunshine, Good Day Sunshine

We take a walk, the sun is shining down
Burns my feet as they touch the ground

Good Day Sunshine, Good Day Sunshine, Good Day Sunshine.

Then we'd lie beneath the shady tree
I love her and she's loving me
She feels good, she knows she's looking fine
I'm so proud to know that she is mine.

Good Day Sunshine, Good Day Sunshine, Good Day Sunshine

To Market To Market

On my way to the Farmers' Market last week I took the long way to see some of the countryside. In the distance are rolling hills but the dust makes them look very hazy.

When I got to the market there were all kinds of fruits and vegetables including these beautiful melons. Everything is locally grown.

I also got a chance to see some furry market goers. These two fellow were attracting a lot of attention.

This pretty girl was wondering when her daddy would be finished talking so they could see what was going on down the street.

There was also a car show. Cars of all shapes and sizes were on display.

Isn't this just adorable. Click on photos to enlarge.

They Say It's Our Birthday!

Yes we're going to a party party
Yes we're going to a party party
Yes we're going to a party party

I would like you to dance (Birthday)
Take a cha-cha-cha-chance (Birthday)
I would like you to dance (Birthday)

It's not all The Beatles, just Paul!

You say it's your birthday
It's our birthday too, yeah

Mommy says the first time she got a look at us kittens was October 7, 2010. We were very tiny and to take this photo she had to use the telephoto so she wouldn't scare us.

From looking at the photos our hooman Mommy figures we must have been born in September. That's Miss Sissi Cat looking at mommy, even back then she was the bravest. We don't remember that being born thing, we barely remembers being that small.

When Mommy told us our birthday was sometime in September but she didn't know what day we all gots together for a meeting. (Mommy wants you to know that getting us all together for a group photo has been almost impossible, this is the only one she has of all of us and Miss Cindi.)

Anywho, since we don't know what September day is our birthday we decided to celebrate all month long!

The Kitty Krew is one year old!

Yay! Party Time!

Relaxin' by the Pond

Most of the wheat fields were harvest over a month ago. After the harvest they came back for the wheat stubble that was left behind, it is now baled and ready to be stored. But now the fields and most everything else looks dry and barren. Actually it is dry, it has been well over two months since we had rain. It is no where near as serious here as it is in Texas but we have had our share of fires and a little rain would be appreciated. Click on any photo to enlarge.

Maybe that's why the local parks and lakes are so popular right now. A few places are still green and lush. I like to capture just the reflections in the water.

Most of my blogging friends know I like to flip the reflections over for a different view.

Along with the dryness it has been in the mid nineties. Even the male Mandarin duck is staying close to the shade.

For Rent

Hi little fellow, what are you looking at?

It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.
Author Unknown

These are some birdhouses I have seen around town.

This little fellow is a Western Tanager.

Small Town

Well I was born in a small town
And I live in a small town
Prob'ly die in a small town
Oh, those small communities

No I cannot forget where it is that I come from
I cannot forget the people who love me
Yeah, I can be myself here in this small town
And people let me be just what I want to be

Got nothing against a big town
Still hayseed enough to say
Look who's in the big town
But my bed is in a small town
Oh, and that's good enough for me

Thursday are fun because of all the great friends we visit. There is Freda's ThisWay/Thurday for starters. Then we get musical with Hootin' Anni's Thursday Theme Song. And if you are like me and love hearts you have to visit Clytie's Guest Heart Thursday.There are hearts in the last photo but you'll have to look hard. Hint: Click to enlarge and look at the top of the photo.

Day at the Park

We decided to take a stroll through the park today.
We were welcomed by the official greeter, he said he hoped we enjoyed our stay.

We then had to pass through security. This guard was sniffing to see if we had any nuts or other goodies to share.

Finally we were inside the park. What a beautiful day!

Have a Squirrelly Weekend

Spooky here!
See the squirrel up above? I told him if he stuck his head in the hole he could be on mommy's blog. What I didn't tell him was that it is a trap! Silly squirrel. I'm taking Dory's Squirrel Chasing 101 class. Do you think I will get an "S" (that's for squirrel)? If you would like to take the class visit Dory's Backyard (there's also Jacob and Bilbo too).

Happy Labor Day Weekend to all our friends in the US.
Happy Weekend to Everyone!

I'm taking the long weekend off, see everyone next week.
