Happy Bird-day To Me!


January 6th, Epiphany

for my birthday i went to the purebred pigeon show. it was splendid! i adore birds. even pigeons. they are beautiful. when i first married my husband he called them sky rats and it hurt my feelings. (he's from NY.)




later in the day we saw this sunset in Del Mar. i felt like the sky, and God, were smiling on my birthday.
we also saw whales very far away, migrating and blowing spray. O happy day...

what is your favorite birthday memory?

the sunset photo was taken from the shore of a sweet village called del mar...if you ever travel to san diego, check it out...about fifteen minutes north of downtown...

How lovely!

My fave birthday memory is when I was 14. I got my first dog... a sweet little pup I called Sam. He lived until I was 27 and I was devastated when he died.

Happy memories! :)

My favourite birthday memory is from my 5th birthday. In the morning, I went outside to play and discovered a hutch with 2 rabbits in it -- my birthday gift from my parents. I was so surprised and thrilled!

Nothing favourite as such. Nice clicks! I like birds too, but the pigeons here irritate a lot.

o how cool, debra! a black bunny was my very 1st pet...named clover!

lovely fiona...hearts alive

thanks nehha...maybe annoying, but even pigeons need a place to be, and to fly and go pigeon pooping...

Hello dearest, I thought I was following you, apparently not. But I am now! Have a lovely day over there xx

Sky rats! I'd never heard that before. I love pigeons as well. When my parents took me to the park, I always tried to catch one. Never did, though.

Thanks for visiting my blog! Good luck with your novel!

I just posted a comment on your other blog, which you can read. I saw you found my blog and came over to meet you. The sunset photograph is gorgeous, and you sound like a most lovely young woman! One who loves animals. Most of my life I've been afraid of dogs, but I have three children with dogs and now I love them! And cats!!
