And your bird for today is...
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 15, 2017
...a Vulture!
Not a pretty bird, but without Vultures who would clean up all the roadkill?
Vultures work in Environmental Protection, the Department of Hazardous Waste Disposal!

Have a blessed day!

Willy Nilly Friday 5, June 23, 2017

Willy Nilly Friday 5, Sky Watch Friday, and Floral Friday Fotos

1. Hurricane Cindy (Sky Watch Friday)
Lee County, Mississippi, USA, June 22, 2017
We have increasing cloudiness as a weakening Hurricane Cindy moves inland, but the main force of the storm is to the west of us. Today's forecast: a high temperature of 82F (28C) and an afternoon thunderstorm.

2. More Guitars
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, June 20, 2017
While I was in Tupelo on Tuesday, I photographed a few more of the Tribute to Elvis sculptures since people seemed to like the ones I posted last week.

You ain't nothing but... (a hound dog) ...Howling all the time

Blue Hawaii...Aloha from Tupelo

3. Something Hatched
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 21, 2017
From looking at photos on the Internet, I think it might be a Blue Jay, and I have seen Blue Jays at our bird feeders.

4. Who would have thought...
 Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 20, 2017
...that a rolled up water hose would be such a good back scratcher? Or perhaps she is giving herself a massage!

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 21, 2017
We are not sure of her exact age, but she adopted us in February 2010.

5. A new purchase (Floral Friday Fotos)

Birds on a Fence, June 22, 2017

Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, May 27, 2017
The best fences have birds on them!

They were all busy preening their feathers.

House Sparrows, I think.

Thankful Thursday
I am thankful that we live far enough inland that Hurricane Cindy will bring rain, but not the fierce wind that people on the Gulf Coast are experiencing. May God protect them.

I hope you are having a great day!

Eastern Phoebe, June 21, 2017

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, May 4, 2017
Eastern Phoebes, Sayornis phoebe, can be seen in the eastern half of the United States and in many provinces of Canada. Their winter range includes Mexico and the Central American countries. They are very vocal birds, and can be identified by their call: phoe-be, phoe-be, phoe-be. Another identifier is their habit of flicking their tails up and down.

Their major food sources are flying insects, but they also eat spiders, ticks, millipedes, seeds, and small fruit.

I hope you are having a wonderful week!

Chili's, June 20, 2017

Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, June 19, 2017
For a limited time Chili's is running a lunch special for ten dollars: appetizer, entrée, and dessert (drinks not included and there is tax, of course, so it adds up to a few dollars more). My husband and I decided to try it yesterday, and the food was very good! I had a mixed green salad, BBQ ribs (Texas dry rub), French fries, chocolate cake, and iced tea. My husband chose the same meal, except he had chips and salsa as his appetizer instead of salad. We both thoroughly enjoyed it!

Have a great day!

Bread and Berries, June 19, 2017

Monday Mural and Harvest Monday

Monday Mural
Baldwyn, Mississippi, USA, June 8, 2017
The Bread Man cometh!


The delivery man took a hand-cart load of bread into the store and left the truck door open.
I wanted to go over there and shut the door so the mural would be complete, but I didn't dare!

Harvest Monday: Foraging for berries

Wild Blackberries may not be as large as the cultivated ones, but they are free food!
The birds and other animals scatter the seeds; rain and sunshine make them grow.

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 15, 2017

This blackberry thicket is on our property. Please do not forage on another person's property without getting their permission first.


We enjoy adding them to our breakfast cereal. Sometimes we crush the berries with a fork, stir in a sprinkle of sugar, and spread the mixture on toasted bread. Yummy either way!

Have a great week!
