Photos, Duckies,Bear and a Roof

Mom made me an album for all of the postings that we print out from my blog so that we'll have all of these memories forever and ever. She decorated the front of it with some of her favorite notecards by Ann Curren. The back of it has more notecards by the same artist plus the Valentine that Butchy sent me and the nice note that Boy-n-Baby sent me with a pressie awhile back! Now when we print off our postings, we have a notebook to put them in to keep them nice and neat and organized. This was one of my postings one Sunday when I was waiting for my hooman sister and Jim to come for oonies!This posting was of Mitch getting his very first bigboy hairecut! What wonderful memories this book will hold!We hope one day to have this whole notebook totally filled!!!

We wanted to give you an update on Daisy and Donald. They're doing fantastic! They're growing by the day but still not going into the big pond yet. They are hanging out in our brook right behind the big barn. We still feed them separately from the other duckies and we still bring them inside the barn at night to sleep. Dad says we have to keep bringing them inside until they bond with the other duckies and swim on the big pond!

The next bit of news we have to report is that our friends Paul and Terry, who live about an hour from us, have a visitor who visits on a daily basis. The visit is usually in the wee hours of the morning but not this time! Paul took these pictures at 4:30 in the afternoon! I'm not sure I'd want this guy on MY porch! How about you?
It just seems a little too close for our comfort!
We also wanted to tell you that dad has almost finished the roof! He only has the caps left to do! Yes, he had help from his buddies Bob and Bill. Thanks guys! We owe you!
Mom is super glad that all of the shingles are picked up off the ground and no more bending over for hours at a time!
And that nail magnet worked wonderfully! We highly recommend it!
I leave you with one more picture - of ME - totally relaxing! That's a baby apple right in front of my nose! Who cares! I need my beauty rest!

Until next time...................

Love ya lots,

Holy Yogi Bear, Maggie! That's some visitor! Your friends didn't leave a pic-a-nic basket out, did they? Wowzers!
My mom LOVES your idea of printing out the postings and making a book! Did you print the comments, too, or just the daily post? We're thinking of doing something like that and wondered what you suggest!
Play bows,

The Army of Four said...

Thanks for leaving us a bark, Maggie! I think if you open up the page individually like, then the comments are there, but not the comment-leavers' pictures!
I like your idea of doing each post!
Play bows,

Hi Maggie...Our Mom has had another blog for a little over a year where she blogs all about the human family. She does the same thing that you do and prints them out and puts every entry into a book. She's making the books so the human kids can have them when they are grown. It's a great idea. She hasn't started making a book of our blog yet but we think she should!!!

Oh yea, I don't know what we would do if we found a bear in the yard. Mom would probably want to move away!!

Love, Seadra and Zoe

Hi Maggie,
I think printing out the posts and compiling it into a book is a fab idea. Hope my mom will get the hint and do it for me..
*gasp*.. is that a bear taht I see??!

Chelsea said...

Maggie, those are great photos. I don't like that bear either. Especially since he looks hungry.

The ducks are ok I guess...I am not really fond of birds. I am scared of them
And squirrels, and raccoons, and flies...oh I could go on.

Boo Casanova said...

first off maggie, no problem on the dog. did your mom managed to finish the book? it's good rite? i don't want her to return without reading it. it's going to waste coz she feel guilty for keeping it so long so she return it without reading.

anyway, wow, that visitor is not the best visitor huh. if the bear was at your house, i'm sure you and mitch gonna put up a fight if it to pawtect your family.

Hey Maggie,
I think your Mom's idea of compiling your posts into a book is great. Always nice to look back all these memories huh?
*gasp* that BEAR is HUGE!!

Princess, Tank and Isaac: The Newfs of Hazard said...

Hey Aire-friends! That bear looks almost as big as us! Happy upcomming birthday to you and your mom! You heard it here first!

Toby said...

Ok, not only do you have 2 duckies but you have a Bear for a neighbor? Man, you sure have an exciting life!!! Although I agree with you, not so sure if I want Mr. Bear as a neighbor... I mean, maybe its just me (I'm scared of cats u know), but a Bear?? Yikes, that would scare the you-know-what outa me!!! You and Mitch and duckies be careful k??

And we love the album idea!!! Your Mom is so creative.


Kien said...

Anyway.. thanks Maggie for all the supports u gave me.. big thank you and hugs to you!..

That's a great idea. When I told mom about it she said something like "One more thing..."

Guess the photo album is out for me..

Hey when is Mitch gonna say hi again?

Faya said...

Nessa Happens said...

Holy cow! That bear looks just like Pooka!

Murphey said...

I think I'll stick with my frogs that visit at night, no bears need apply! WOW!

I'd take some duckies though, they look like fun to chase...

Wow Maggie.. What a great idea to do a scrapbook (sorta) of your blogs so that you will have them forever. Super cool! I must discuss doing this with my mom!!! Hugs,

Linda said...

Hey Maggie,
Wow, the barn looks great! We wish we had a huge barn like that. Gosh, we don't think we would want a bear on our porch, never know when they might decide to try and eat you, hehehehe! They sure are cute though. Glad the bear hasn't come to your house, it might get your duckies, yikes! We like your blog album. Mama has also been printing out our blog posts, but just sticks them inside of a folder. We'll have to get her to make us a neat book for them. She also copies our blog posts to a cd. Hope you have a great weekend!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Dux? You got DUX? Ooohh, so cool! What do airedales do when they see ducks? We know what kerries would do, and it wouldn't be pretty! Daisy and Donald do look kinda cute, though...

The new roof's awesome--what a lotta work!

Let us know where the bears are--we'll chase 'em.

Miss Ellie in Canada would like you to know she has smelled bears up at her cottage!

I make her wear a Bear Bell when she goes out to play so the bear and Miss Ellie do not have the opportunity to meet!

Way back when in the wild wild west the would use airedales to hunt bears...quite successfully!

I don't have a big enough freezer for all that meat though so I guess we will stick with the bell.

Amber-Mae said...

Holly crap! A BEAR in your porch??? That's scawie... You don't know when it's gonna come back especially when you're out there chillin or having a snack. Hopefully, YOU or Mitch won't be it's snack! Just be careful a wee bit... Why don't cha your hoomans call the animal control to catch it & find a new home for him. That would be better right? That's a lovely album by the way...

Love licks,

Your mom is so creative and nurturing. You're lucky to have her (now I sound like I'm complaining about my girl, which I'm not - just noticing your mama).

Do you think the bear will come your way? What will you do? (Run I hope - or better yet, stay inside, girlie).

Get some rest. You looked pooped.

Goober love,

Holy Doggie~Is that Bear In Coconuticut???
Oh and Maggie~If you look REALLY close at you Lavenders, Yours IS as gorgeous as mine are...the smallest things sometimes are the best!

Myeo said...

What a great idea to compile all your entries and all those sweet notes from your friends!

We hope the bear is not dangerous cos it looks really scawy.
