A Little Quality

I was moved today by Matt's post at Animal Mind and I decided I needed to do something that added some quality back into my life. That Matt's a motivator.

This cardinal likes to come and talk to Holmes. So does his wife, who is much harder to capture with a camera. It has taken months to get him. This is the best picture I have ever taken of him. The two of them, Holmes and the cardinal have never allowed me to take their picture together. There must be a rule that says you aren't allowed to photograph cross-species communications.






I'd like to introduce the World to my Grand Nephew Alexander (a.k.a. Zander). Zander is amazing. His father was showing him how to bowl, with children's bowling stuff. His father rolled the ball into the pins, and knocked a lot of them down. then he handed the ball to Zander. Zander ran down the hall with the ball, and fell on the pins, and knocked them all down. I claimed he won.







We all know The Queen. Here she is, in all her glory!

It's been good for me, I hope you liked it.

I may have to take up smoking, it was that good.

Does Zander like brunettes? I can hook him and Smelly up.

He is precious!

Your nephew is too cute for words! Okay, I managed a few words but I'd let him win too!

Pretty bird. I bet he tastes good. Holmes can't be photographed with him because that would make her a traitor to the cat cause. I know that stuff.

Matt said...

I'm touching lives all over the place.

Btw, I nominate Zander for president!

You all are wonderful. We need a barbeque. Zander's Mom is due with her second child around September 28th. That's her trying to hold onto the bundle of energy himself. It's days like this that I realize that I'm lucky.

I like the glowing eyes on the queen. It suits after keeping up with your stories about her.
