With silver crest and golden eye,
That welcomes every changing hour,
And weathers every sky.”

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

....even at 90!  (Why else would she ask for "a nice bottle of cognac" for her birthday?) Happy Birthday Mom!

 Her "youngster" neighbor Jacque was celebrating her 80th birthday too.
Happy Birthday to Cowgirl Number 1 and Cowgirl Number 2! Crack open the cognac and peach schnapps and pop in a cowboy movie to celebrate....

Time for a little bit of "aw!"  This is the as-yet-unnamed baby giraffe born last month at Zoo Atlanta.

And for those of you who may have seen last week's episode of Wilfred, this one is brand-new, in the box. Not returned.

A Peacock's Tale

Have you ever noticed how a peacock's tail feathers get all the attention? Sure, they're colorful, and they are his defining feature, but look at this guy's beautiful eye. Do you think when he's strutting around the yard with the peahens, he has to say things like, "Uh, ladies, I'm up here"?
