Dogs in my yard last night. Two lovely yellow golden retrievers came in the back gate from the field ... they live along the road a bit but I was down feeding the birds with our little Connor when they came in ... wagging their tails. I hated shooshing them away but they ended up eating the bread I put out for the birds .... before they left...

The president was not aboard the plane, which was on a government mission to snap photos of the Statue of Liberty.
Several office buildings in Lower Manhattan were evacuated and streams of people were seen rushing into the streets."
these little sweethears. I love their faces. The first time I saw one of these was in Yosemite National Park on one of my trips from Australia.
We all stayed in cabins in the woods of course .. and next morning when we were heading out ... there they there... not these ones of course ... but others up a tree and wandering around the parked cars and buses.
Little bandits for sure with their masked faces. Since I've lived here in Canada I have began to love the animals even more so than when I lived in Australia if that's at all possible. I'm a complete animal nut. I love each and every one of them. Old, young, ugly or gorgeous ... they are all in my heart and prayers for their safety and well being.

The little bunny in the image here is so pretty. I love bunnies. When I lived in Australia .. as a young girl and even into my forties... I had bunnies as pets. They were varied in colours ... but their names all began with "B". Of course there was Bugs, then Bobbie, Basil, Boots, Burt, and Blackie. They would run around the yard which was all enclosed ... and my beautiful Old English Sheepdog, Boswell, would stand and watch them ... I think he was a bit scared of them ... as he was with mice. He was so big and gorgeous .. yet frightened of a little mouse that one day ran across the deck from the shed. Even now here in Canada after ten years... I still think of them when I'm peeling carrots or corn or taking the leaves off the lettuce ........ they would love all those goodies........... gotta love the bunnies :-))

Where is he coming from ???????? I find him to be so ingenuous. He changes tactics when his White House mates don't like what he says ... can't he think for himself and stick to his actions at least once without back tracking. I feel sorry now for those CIA agents who were just doing their jobs ...... who were trying to get information out of the terrorists to save the USA and the world from more killings and useless goings on that will not stop just because he says the USA now does not torture. In fact they will increase. What a windfall for the terrorists ... to have a guy "on their side" who won't hurt them unnecessarily. And I'm still peeved at knowing that Obama blatently says he's not a muslim when all his family are muslims, he has lived in a muslim country, and he's got a muslim name.

It will soon be Mother's Day again. I never have a nice time on that day ... remembering that I could not have my own children ... and now also that my own mum is no longer with me. She is buried in a sweet little country cemetery close to where I used to live. She was a country girl and her resting place is a peaceful small area near a field where there are sheep and horses ... with big shady trees. I used to pick a huge bunch of white daisies from my garden to take over to the cemetery for her .... she is in the photo above. She had a stroke when she was just 49 and dad and myself looked after her till she died at age 66. Her left side was paralyzed .. she had a very sad life I thought ... before she met my dear old dad. He loved her dearly and had so much patience when he was dealing with her ........ they are both together now .........
