I'd Rather be Birding Blog Hop

Today I am linking up with Hootin' Anni's
at

Snowy Egret sighting
Blair Farm Parkway
Morehead City, NC
May 16, 2015







White Ibis Sighting
Blair Farms
Morehead City, NC
May 16, 2015


 First Year White Ibis changing into White Plumage
I feel extremely fortunate to have seen this beautiful creature.



When it comes to shore birds, I must admit to being an amateur birder.  I would like to thank my friend Kathy for identifying  these birds for me.  For nearly 5 years, she and her husband traveled in an RV all over the USA and Canada Birding!! They blogged about all they saw here and even made it to NC to meet us!!

SATURDAY PHOTO HUNT: TANNED

If it is Saturday I must be Hunting
Click here for a list of words
Today's word is 

tanned:  make or become brown
by exposure to the sun
I hope

 and purr
 my gray furs
 don't turn brown 
from my sun puddle surfing

Oh my cats mom is an eager beaver we'll be joining 
I'd rather be birding 
blog hop.
(yep 2 posts today) 
At 1 pm today, our time, 
It is our first time there.  Mom had some fantastic shore bird sightings last weekend.

F x 4 Friends, Flowers, Fun, Frogs


My peeps went to visit my sweet human sis, brother in law
and their cat, Harley, last weekend.  I stayed home 
but lo and behold by 
the magic of Pizap Mom magically transported me
to Harley's house for our first family photo.
Harley  is almost 11.  He came up to visit us a few times
when he was a kitty...but after a few very uncomfortable trips
it was determined he did not like cars.


Here are some flowery photos mom took while visiting the family too




Mom saw these two pups on the Boardwalk in Beaufort..she loved the looks on their  faces. She knew exactly what they were thinking

I'm eagerly....

waiting and watching for Mom to finish changing the sheets 'cause it is time for my afternoon nap

 I was so excited when she finished
I did a hand stand
Of course she was waiting on the sidelines with the camera her evil twin hoping to snap something exciting.  She usually misses all the good stuff...WTG mom you did it!!

GADGETS and PALS


Lots of folks like them, lots are afraid of them.
Would you believe some folks want to blog
but don't feel they have the know how...
WELL there is a cure for that keep reading..



OH MY FRIENDS HAVE YOU HEARD 

ABOUT SARGE'S BIG MAY EVENT!!

A New Blog Awaits a Silent Follower


Copied from Sarge's Blog:


Hey Everyone!
Wow, the month is half over already and I'm really having fun with Recruit A Pal!  
 I'm trying to find a new/returning furiend to join us and I know lots of you are
 working at it too.  Thanks so much for trying to get more furiends to come to Blogville.

Well, one of my big suggestions to help you recruit is the idea of creating the basic

 blog setup for someone new.   Sometimes these tech things can be very scary and 
if your furiend has never
 blogged before, they might not know how to start.   SO, WHY NOT START THE BASIC 
BLOG FOR THEM!   THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT FRANKIE DID FOR ME.   YUP, HE GAVE ME
A READY-TO-GO BLOG.   ALL I HAD TO DO WAS START POSTING.   SUPER EASY!

So, I created a basic, rather generic blog for someone who wants 

to start posting.

HERE'S A SHOUT OUT TO MY SILENT FOLLOWERS!   PLEASE JOIN US!    
Here is what the new blog looks like:




It's all set up and ready to go.   It just needs YOU, my non-blogging 
furiend to agree to join us.   I'll give you the address, password 
and basic info to get you going.   All you have to do is post. 
Our furiend Oz has offered a blog makeover
or a winning new furiend, so that could be your ticket 
to customizing this to your own style and taste.   WHAT COULD BE
 EASIER?!?   WHADDA YOU SAY?!?    


Don't forget that all species are welcome in Blogville!   We love our dog, 
cat, rabbit, bird, pig, donkey, horse, fish, etc etc furiends.    
If you're a peep without a pet, you're welcome to join us!  
We have peep furiends too!  


SARGE SAYS PURRTY PLEASE FIND A NEW OR OLD FRIEND 
TELL THEM ABOUT HIS GREAT OFFER.

We have 3 new or returning bloggers too
Please go visit COOKIE here.    

 MISS OSWIN and; BROM AND FINN and CHARLEY TOO!



After this event is over there will be a giant
blogville party on June 2, food, fun, friends, and 
dancing.  If you are going to the dance,
get yourself all spit shined and polished, dress
in some find duds. Then send me
your photo, I, Madi, will fix you up with some
pretty posies.  My deadline is May 25, 2015.
send your photo to

Monday Madi Mews

THEY ARE BACK
AND I THINK THEY MISSED ME...
OR AT LEAST THOUGHT ABOUT ME
 THEY SHOWED ME THEIR SOFT GRAY SOCKS ALMOST AS SOFT AS MY FURS
DAD'S ACTUALLY LOOK PURRTY
GOOD WITH MY FURS
 MOM'S ARE KINDA OF FUNKY
WITH FLOWERS AND SWIRLS AND STARS
Granted it is not sock weather in Dixie but here is the rest of the story.
These socks were 
FREE  
You see back in the fall they bought
socks at Clark's Shoes.  The sales person told my peeps the socks were guaranteed for life.  If they got a hole in them, to return them for another pair.
I'm betting they kinda wish they hadn't told my peeps about free socks.  Dad is Mr. Scissor toes.
These are the 2nd pair he has returned.
Mom can't remember the last time she had a hole in a pair of socks.  Until these.
