A pigeon flying around.  I just discovered that pigeons were once used by The U.S. Coast Guard for Search and Rescue missions.  Another wrinkle on the brain.

Y’all all (that is Texas plural for everyone) have a great week.  And Happy Fourth to the folks in the USA.   Thanks to Saturday’s Critters host Eileen.

Good Fences – #66

Most of my time outside these four walls is spent at sporting events watching grandchildren.  Or looking at the recent rains through the patio fence.  That is all I have for Good Fences this week.  But really great fences can be seen here.

Good Fences – June 18, 2015

It is time again for running the fences.  Not really running as that would imply we needed to be ready to repair them.  How about we just enjoy the photos of fences across the world.  Click here to visit them all.

These photos are from 2013 visit to Disney World and the Gulf Coast of the USA.

These are some of the fence photos from our San Diego visit in March.

Just a simple chain link fence wearing an orchid corsage for prom days…. maybe?

Who does not love a picket fence surrounded by flowers!  Maybe Huck Finn.

Wild Bird Wednesday 150

Enjoyed sitting on the patio the past few days watching the doves and mockingbirds.  Doves are still somewhat amorous.  Mockingbirds seem to be feeding hatchlings.  And a female sparrow (I think) needed to pose a little.  Here are a few of the shots.   IMGP6082150531 IMGP6083150531 IMGP6084150531 IMGP6085150531 IMGP6086150531 IMGP6087150531 IMGP6089150531 IMGP6077150531 IMGP6078150531 IMGP6080150531
