Tail-less wonder

So, the first time Mom saw this guy she thought it was a rabbit ... with abnormally small ears. :) It took many looks, a lot of talking back and forth, and a rather long time to agree that it IS actually a squirrel ... without a tail. He kind of stumbles around when jumping from the pole to the feeder and such, but he has no trouble running on the ground or up trees ... or eating bird food. *glares* But, I kinda have a softie spot for him, I mean, *baby voice* look at him, he's so sad looking with out the normal, twitching, puffy squirrel tail. Don't you feel sorry for him, too? *wink*

Sweet little Bro

Upon arriving home from a bike ride Ethan came in to show me the flowers that he'd picked for Mom, Leah and me. The yellow ones are the ones Ethan picked, the other ones Mom put in to give it some color ... I guess.


Sorry this first ones a little blurry. Click on the pictures for a close-up view.

Leah was taking apart a dress that she'd made before and she had about 4 yards of material for the full skirt.

Cute measuring "cups" I got for less then .50 cents each!!
Also got for less then .50 cents each.
A new puzzle a friend got for me. You can't see it, but their are tears rolling down the cheeks of "Stonewall" Jackson (left) and Robert E. Lee (right). Thus the name ... next picture.

Kind of weird picture but here is my fat little pregnant doggie. She's due I think next week.
Laundry on the line and beloved basket.
Two bees on a sunflower (one is right in the middle and the other is off to the right, almost off the picture).
