Ruffled Feathers On Friday

Mr GBH looks as though he Halloween-partied quite hard last night and hasn’t yet got around to smoothing down his tousled feathers. I think the bed-head look quite suits him though.


Wishing you all a great weekend and a November filled with gratitude.



Feathers On Friday: They Say That This Is My Best Side

Mr. GBH poses for the camera. I told him he’s going to be famous on my blog. He replied, “I already am.”


Wishing you all a happy weekend.


Feathers On Friday: Meet Me By The Water.

Mr. GBH has been on his own for as long as I remember, but yesterday it seemed that he may have a date.


It was looking very promising indeed.


However, it was to come to nothing and they parted just good friends.


I wonder if they’ll ever meet again. I’d love to see some GBH babies around the place. Call me a matchmaker if you like.


Wishing you all a very happy weekend.




Feathers On Friday: Mr Yellow Legs

Yesterday, on our way back from grocery shopping, we decided to stop by our local wildlife sanctuary. As usual, we saw many contenders for my blog post today, but the clear winner was the tricoloured heron who nonchalantly sat on the guardrail of the boardwalk. He let me get so close that I could have reached out and touched him and he never batted an eyelid.

I spoke to him softly and commiserated with him that he seemed to have only one leg. He listened patiently and then magically produced his other yellow leg from deep in his undercarriage. ” Tah-da! There you go. No worries.” 🙂

I was so relieved to see he hadn’t lost a leg, but still marvelled at how he could manage to stand on one leg for so long. When I do my ‘Golden Rooster’ pose in T’ai Chi, I can only balance for a few seconds. Maybe he could teach me a thing or two. For one thing, I’d love to learn how to take off from standing and soar up into the air. Just imagine how impressed all my friends would be.

Wishing you all a perfect weekend with lots of fun times.

Feathers On Friday: Looking Back

Have you ever wished that you had ‘eye’s in the back of your head’? I know I have, especially when I was teaching at school. Ms Anhinga has solved the problem by turning her head through180 degrees. A very clever trick indeed.

Wishing you all a splendid weekend, filled with love, laughter, good food and lots of fun.

Feathers On Friday: Blue Flash

This Boat-tailed Grackle posed so nicely for his photo at our local nature reserve.


It’s been a very busy week here especially for hubby, who after finishing all the painting, except for the dining area which has all the wood flooring stacked up in it, immediately started putting the hardwood floor down right through the living area. Yesterday, he said that I could phone to see which day next week my piano could be delivered. The answer came back “Monday morning”, which was a bit sooner than we anticipated, so it’s all go this weekend to lay the floor  before they arrive. I’m so excited about being able to play again and serenade hubby whilst he’s finishing off the rest of the house.

Wishing you all a very happy weekend. Ours will be happy, but it won’t be at all relaxing.
