RIP Sweet Julius

Since the watch of Tajari's impending birth and afterwards there have been many baby giraffe's born.  However Julius had difficulties from birth just a month ago. Every thing was tried to save him but alas nature sucks today and he is gone.  RIP Julius, we loved you for the short time you were with us.

The Left is at it Again

I have two female cats.  One is named Bucky Crookshanks after Bucky Cat in the Get Fuzzy Cartoon and Crookshanks is the name of Hermione's cat in Harry Potter.  One is named Groucho Marx because she has the Groucho mustache.  Bucky is a long haired black cat with a bit of white.  Groucho is a tuxedo cat.

So I have probably misgendered them according to the article. No I did not ask them if they wanted to be spayed, they were the product of stray females who had litters and I did not want to deal with them going into heat and all that goes with that, knowing they were never going to have kittens.  I did not ask them what they wanted to be named either.  When I want them both to come with me to the basement if we have a bad storm, I often say come on girls and they come.  They don't look at me and say why do you call me girl.  They pee like a girl and their DNA is a girl, so therefore, they are girls.  I can't change that.  God make them girl kitties and I am not about to go against what He made.  Those of you who know me know my girls are my children and they are spoiled; but to think they get a say in what happens to them is not gonna happen.  They could care less.  As long as they have food, water, a clean litter box and a lap to sit on and toys to play with and they live inside 24/7 well they don't care. 

Like so much crap the left spews today this is another person who needs some serious help. No wonder the country is in  the mess we are today.

Edible Eagles

Before PETA comes swooping in these are eagle cookies and they are just too cute. I would have a hard time eating them because of their cuteness.  I am sure if I tried to make them it would be a Pinterest fail, but they would be cute to make.

Bye Bye CFA

Those of you who know me know that I love me some Chick Fil A. I waited years to get one close to my house and now I live in between 2 of them.  But sadly they have caused me to re-think whether I eat there anymore.  First they got rid of the cole slaw and replaced it with a kale salad. Seriously who eats that crap?  We live in the midwest, we eat cole slaw, we don't eat kale, that stuff is nasty.  Now I see today you are getting rid of my Chicken Salad Sandwich, you have gone toooooo far now.  That is the only thing i eat there, the meal with the sandwich, waffle fries and lemonade.  Why do you need to do this, are you catering to some coastal peeps who don't like eating comfort food?  Do you think this will make your die-hard customers happy?  I can't even think about this because it is so wrong.

I"m Not Leaving

The next morning D27 hopped around to a few branches and flew back to the nest.  She appears to not be leaving ever.  Maybe she figures as long as she stays mom or dad will bring her food and she will always be taken care of.  It does not work that way come time this Fall to start working on the nest for next Spring, she will be chased off.  In her own eagle time she will Fledge but until then we can watch her antics and squueeee for food.

She did fledge later this afternoon. Guess she decided her siblings were having too much fun and mom/dad told her to get packing.  So now the empty nest syndrome sets in until next February when we have a new batch of eggs.

Fly high and soar the thermals 26, 27, and 28. May you live a long eagle life.

Eagle OverBoard

This evening d27 was playing in the nest, practicing hovering and oops went overboard.  Those pesky crib rails are gone and there is not much to keep from going over the edge of the nest.  About 1:40 on the video you can see her go over.  Boots on the ground found her in the nest tree several feet below on a branch.  She is ok, but needs to get flying to get back to the nest.

2 Fledged, 1 To Go

D28 fledged this morning.  That leaves D27 left.  They say males fledge first, so is 27 a female?  Be safe D's and soar high.
