Bob is hopeless!!!!! Enjoy the day in spite of him.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Well, look on the bright side, Shelley. At least Bob enjoys coming to your bird bath.. We don't have any doves here this winter--that I've seen.

Happy 2009.
Hugs,
Betsy

Richard said...

Happy New Year Shelley

Ha Shelley, I can finally understand your frustration. My heated bird bath is a mess. Yesterday the starlings pooped in there and now the goldfinches keep dropping nyjer seed in it.

Bob is a creature of habit I suppose. ;o). Very funny picture.

I wonder if Bob may be saying that we might all be pooping into our giant bird bath that we depend on. :)

Nick S said...

A Death In The Blogger World

A blogger friend lost her husband suddenly last Sunday night. I thought it would be nice to go and leave a message for her on her blog...You may know her as 'mommanator' at grannies ramblings

Tina said...

It's always good to have a plan..especially if Bob has control of the situation!!

Deborah Godin said...

Funny!! I think you nailed his thoughts exactly, as if he had a little balloon over his head!

It's the little things that make us happy.

Happy birdbath cleaning!

Denise said...

Well, your Bob must visit my birdbaths, downstate. I don't get many birdy visitors to my birdbath at the cabin. ...I don't know why. I wonder if it's because we are on a lake. Things that make you go hmmmm.....

Shellmo said...

Mildred - he is and I still love him! lol!

Betsy - I'll send you some of his many relatives!

Richard - I'm not picking on him...just telling the truth. lol!

Happy New Year Shelley! Great photo! Love the perspective!

Nature Nut /JJ Loch said...

ROFL, Shell. Great birdbath and dove photo...speaks volumes. :D I have the same problem with bird doo cascading down the top of the bird feeder. Perhaps we should provide a fly in outhouse for the dear birds.


Happy New Year, hon!!!

Hugs, JJ
