And the Answer Is …

Thanks to all those who responded to my question on yesterday’s post.  It’s a gray catbird.

Now, on to the next “mystery” – can you find the dog in this photo?  Puppy Cody thinks she’s safely hidden.  LOL.

Camouflage – when the dog matches the decor a little too well.

(And for all you eagle-eyed perfectionists:  We will be pulling out those little strips of carpet in the near future; we just wanted to get the majority of the stinky 70-year-old carpet out and something cleaner put down asap.  We also will be re-painting the walls soon.  There was only so much we could do in one day.)

What Is It?

Can anyone identify this bird for me?

It’s standing on the roof of my garage in Western New York, USA.  I saw a similar one perched in a tree, making sounds like a jay.  But I don’t think it’s an immature jay because there’s no blue on it anywhere.  I thought maybe it’s a catbird, but I don’t know that those reside in New York State.  Then, I thought maybe it’s a young female cardinal, but it has no red nor does it have a tuft on its head.

I’m always finding critters in my backyard that I can’t identify, and it drives me crazy.

Anyone have an answer for me on this one?

And on the Eighth Day, God said … [again]

Yes, I’ve posted this before (more than once), but it’s still a favorite of mine – and many of my newer readers haven’t seen it.  I re-post this today as a thank-you to everyone who gave me virtual hugs in response to my last post.  I apologize for not responding to any of your comments.  There was some upsetting family news, but it’s being handled, and I’m feeling much better now.  Hugs back to all of you!

And On the Eighth Day, God Said …

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

LET THERE BE BLOGGERS!

And Men and Women – old, young, tall, short, fat, thin – of all races and creeds came from many varied  and far-reaching lands and formed a World Within a World.

And God called them Bloggers and was pleased.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But sometimes the Bloggers were confused.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And sometimes they were sad.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And sometimes they made God frown.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But God’s forgiveness is always sweet.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And so, my children, please come forthwith to our World Within a World, which we call the Blogosphere, and henceforth may ye create.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

***

May our blogging community always remain strong, and may we bloggers share our love and support across cities, states, nations, and continents, regardless of our race, religion, sexual preference, or political affiliation, and despite those who would make those aspects more important than they should be.

Struggling Along

I’m in no mood for writing today (virtual hugs are welcomed).

Let me just share some photos from this past weekend:

State University of New York at Buffalo, Amherst Campus (SUNYAB)

Greek Columns at Baird Point, SUNYAB

Guard Geese

“Listen Up, Kids!”

Hidden Beauty

It’s beautiful weather here today.  Some time outdoors may just do the trick.

Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
