Happy Late Tuesday and Wordless Wednesday PLUS Brian's Thankful Thursday!!! May 11-12-13, 2021

Happy Tuesday!!!!

Here's that cute little boy with another
chicken - this one is big enough to lay some eggs!

Wordless Wednesday!

Our two Cactus Orchids are blooming like crazy! 
We got a start from my sweeties Grandmother's 
plant that she had gotten a start from her mother's plant!
So - this is an amazing gift handed down! 
Here's the other plant- on the other side of the garage.

And...........Thankful Thursday!!!

Here we all are celebrating yet another
neighbor's 80th Birthday! 
We have the most fun with everyone!
Have a lovely day today!
We are so Thankful for our wonderful 
neighbors- we are like a big family!
