It Sucks to Be Hungry...or a Baby Mockingbird in My Yard

Warning: Disturbing mental images might occur when reading parts of this post, despite my feeble attempts at humor. Just sayin'.

Why eat one when you can have the whole wheel (of cheese), aka box?

When one is hungry, one can get cranky and decide to eat things that might not be appropriate:

Like too many peanut butter sandwiches (me), WAY too many Cheez-Its (also me)...

Or baby Mockingbirds (not me).

There are a couple reasons why I'm sharing this information with you:

1)  I have been cranky from hunger since Monday, April 9; however, because my summer wardrobe (from 2011) shrank a half size over the winter and I really can't afford to get a new one, instead of soothing my hunger with PB and baked cheddar goodness, I am now soothing with baby carrots, spoon-size shredded wheat and dill pickles.
In other words, I'm still cranky. 

2)  Something hungry ate all the baby Mockingbirds that hatched from the three eggs in the nest in the shrub in my yard. Which, you might recall, I wrote a sweet little blog post about, promising to update you with photos of the babies once they hatched.


So. [5-second pause]

Instead of posting photos of the half-destroyed bird's nest* (or the hours-old babies that are now over the bird bridge), I have decided to show you some photos of Jon Farleigh and Dewi as puppies.

You're welcome.
10 weeks
Don't mention it. :)


See you tomorrow!

*No idea what got the birds, but I found a Cooper's hawk's tail feather near the scene. :(


  1. Hi Y'all,

    Stoppin' by to say "hello" and see how y'all are doing. I'm sorry you're not doing so well. Hope some Jon Farleigh and Dewi kisses help you.

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  2. Oh geez - I could eat a box of cheez-its :) Sorry your cranky, but thanks for cheering us up with the cutest puppies I have ever seen!!

  3. Ewww... (the baby birds). Awwww... Dewi and JF. Have to admit I'm not sure which of your boys was cuter as a puppy. They're just both so stinkin' cute!

  4. Oh no! Those poor baby birds! I would be cranky too if I were you. So sorry those clothes shrunk. I swear the demon Clothes Shrinker is busy a lot these days. At my house too!
    I can relate to the bird thing. We have hungry hawks in the area and every once in a while I find the remains of a bird in my yard. I know they have to eat, but always makes me sad.
    Thank you for the warm fuzzies of Jon Farleigh and Dewi.


We love comments almost as much as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Thank you!
