Bob the Mourning Dove - Part VI
























Bob: When are you going to refill that birdbath again?
Me: Why - so you can poop in it again!
Bob: No, I'm just thirsty. Honest!




Mr. Chipmunk: Bob - here's that toilet paper you wanted for the birdbath!

HA!! I am getting my morning dove fix this year through you and a couple of others. Do they really poop a lot in the bird bath. If so than I am glad they are not in my yard. ;o)

Love the chipmunk picuture.

So cute. When I first looked out the kitchen window this a.m., I saw a chipmunk running around in the leaves. I didn't realize he was searching for Bob's toilet paper!!!

Bob, that's nice of the chipmunk, but if I were you, I'd hold out for the kind those little bears use in the TV commercials...

OK...you even got a good chuckle out of me on this one. I was picturing a small roll of TP on a stick by the bird bath.

Very cute! You made me laugh. You must have a heater in your bird bath, right? I haven't purchased one yet. Our temps have dropped to below zero so nothing but frozen water for Bob here.

Those two are plotting something. Don't trust either of them.
