The Eddy Mountains
Taken some years back when we lived
in Weed California.
Right now they are getting lots 
of snow and we are NOT missing plowing!

Awww Monday November 25, 2019

We spent a few hours this Sunday having 
a lovely walk along the Columbia River. 
We came upon two men quietly feeding the
many ducks and a few sea gulls. Silently tossing bits 
of bread while the numerous birds noisily enjoyed a snack.
I carefully walked or should I say waded through
these ducks and gulls so I could talk to the men.   
They come here almost every day. 
I felt like they were the Pied Pipers of Ducks
since so many of the ducks followed one man as he left.
However, after a bit, they turned around and went back to
the river bank.

Early Happy Tuesday November 19, 2019

Another lovely sweet baby girl
arrived into our family in early October.
I really enjoyed creating this quilt for her!
She is laying on top of her quilt and
her gorgeous Mom is with her in the 
photo below. They do not live far from us
so we'll be able to visit often!     

Have a great day!
Thanks Sandee!

Feline Friday November 15, 2019

This is a re-do of this weeks Feline Friday...
I experienced a lot of technical problems and
eventually had to delete the original post as some
problems with commenting could not be fixed. Sorry!
These 3 little kitties showed up in our backyard 
yesterday afternoon. Very skittish and not
trusting at all. But they knew all about "Kitty kitty"
and came towards me when I had Fancy Feast
to share with them!  

I then went online to the Nextdoor web site and
left information and these photos hoping someone
would say "Oh those are our kittens!" 
But nope no one did and we had to assume
that they had been abandoned to fend for themselves.
By this morning after feeding them many times 
yesterday and twice this early morning I managed to
finagle them into our large dog crate we used to 
transport Lucy to our new home. They were also getting
 quite friendly, rubbing up against us
 and wanting in the house.  Well, Lucy was having
none of that and was going ballistic and attacking
 the windows. Russell managed to herd her upstairs
without getting bitten or clawed. 
( Lucy turns quite feral seeing other felines )
I was getting lots of responses and offers of
help by this morning. One amazing woman who is a
came to our home and will transport them
to the shelter for us . Thank goodness for angels.
