A little more stuffing.

 

There’s stuffing everywhere.

 

 

But one side of the ceiling was finished, complete with new light fixtures.

 

 

Were they properly measured and equally spaced?

 

 

They were not… which drives me to distraction every time I look at them. But no one was fried to a crisp and they actually work, so we’ll take our blessings where we find them.

 

 

Stuffing then moved to the other side.

 

 

And things started piling up on my porch, which will not be tolerated.

 

 

Wires for the other side were moved.

 

 

And strung amongst the stuff.

Yes, there are 5 doors leaning up against the wall.

Do we need 5 extra doors?

I think you know the answer to that by now…..

 

 

A rare sighting.

.

No, it’s not me eating a meatless meat patty or getting down with the free Billy Ocean album the husband’s playing to torment me in his barn, man cave large building filled with crap.

It’s this:

.

Eight baby turkeys on the run, headed straight for our bird feeders.

.

IMG_3062

.

Momma brought them up for a nosh for the very first time since we’ve lived here.

.

IMG_3071

.

And that, my friends…. deserves a blog.

.

IMG_3081

.

The little guys were so sweet.

.

IMG_3089

.

Scratching the ground and pecking for seed.

.

IMG_3096

.

They stayed close to mom.

.

IMG_3105

.

And braved the great wide open for a snack.

.

IMG_3119

.

When mom looked wary?

.

IMG_3121

.

Babies did as well.

And a few seconds after this riveting video that will cause my new found legion of YouTube fans to flee….

.

.

Momma got spooked and gathered her chicks.

.

IMG_3131

.

Funny thing was, all the babies ran one way and she ran the other.

.

IMG_3133

.

The chicks gathered.

.

IMG_3137

.

Huddled, and plopped right down to wait.

.

IMG_3141

.

When the coast was clear, momma called.

.

IMG_3142

.

They ran back.

And before I could focus?

.

IMG_3143

.

Everyone went flying for the woods.

 

 

Pandemic humor.

 

Milton Berle said laughter is an instant vacation.

So you might as well laugh, because no one’s going to Cabo anytime soon.

 

 

 

This week’s selections have a theme….

 

 

 

 

Which is basically 2020 bites….

 

 

 

 

And we’re over it.

 

 

 

Never has there been such a crazy, utterly wasted year.

 

 

 

Yes….

 

 

 

 

That pretty much says it all.

Random photos you don’t need to see, but will just to humor me.

.

Our resident skunk who visits nightly.

Like everything else around here, he’s ass backwards with a black striped tail and white tip.

Regardless, he’s still a little stinker… and if the tip goes up?

Run.

.

.

Two CH-53E Marine Corps choppers flying over our backyard during some rare state of Maine training.

We lived in the flight pattern of these babies down south when my husband was active duty, and trust me, when they go by? You feel it.

As does your house.. because everything that isn’t nailed down rattles.

.

.

The sunset up the road from our house the other night.

You may ooh and ah at will.

.

.

A sign I bought for the husband’s future barn bar.

Beer.

Making friends more interesting for centuries.

CSA and more rude produce.

 

This week’s CSA bounty was full.

 

 

With onions, fairy tale eggplants, celery, garlic, basil, rainbow chard, tomatoes, carrots, and salad mix.

But did you see it?

There, on the right hand side…

 

 

A slightly wrong tomato.

 

 

It’s either flipping me off…

 

 

Or sticking out it’s tongue.

 

 

Either way?

It’s rude produce, and that’s just wrong.

Social distancing chuckles.

.

Where there’s a will there’s a way.

.

.

In this scenario, I see my noodle landing in my margarita… and no one wants that.

.

.

Distance.

It’s all relative.

.

.

Canadians have the right idea with hockey sticks. You can measure distance as well as crack heads if someone gets too close.

.

.

Wisconsin? I don’t know. I’d rather not be on the back end of that ruler…

.

.

Bubble gyms?

If they were covered in black fabric so no one could see my quarantine twenty jiggling… maybe.

.

.

Excellent.

And I bet their conversation is more interesting than your cousin Darryl’s anyway.

.

.

Squirrels are people too.

.

.

Pffft!

What’s next, motion sensor operated baptism?

.

.

Now that makes sense!

Woodchuck dining.

.

The brothers are still with us.

.

IMG_3016

.

Getting so fat I can hardly tell them from their mother these days.

.

IMG_3018

.

Although how you get fat from eating lettuce I’m sure I don’t know.

.

IMG_3019

.

I never tire of watching these little scutters eat.

.

IMG_3023

.

And the fact the two remaining siblings still stick close together makes me smile.

.

IMG_3024

.

They don’t always get along….

.

IMG_3027

.

And have been known to tussle over a prime carrot slice now and then…..

.

IMG_3030

.

But you rarely see one without the other.

Am I jealous the brothers are able to go out to eat and be served tasty meals?

Well, maybe a little.
