Counting The Days

Wow, can you believe we are only 16 days from the furst (and only) B*A*R*?  We are so excited we can barely think about anything else!  Mom has her master list of stuffs we are going to be taking with us and there's plenty of chatter back and forth with the others on the organizing committee.  Dad says he's ready to hitch up the little wheelie house and hit the road!


Remember that while we are gone, our esteemed pal Easy will be the official Mayor pro tem.  That's fancy talk to mean he will be in charge of everything in Blogville.  Yup, he will be running the show!

  He is experienced enough that we know he will make the right decisions and he has our full confidence and authority.  We selected him specifically cuz we wanted to give him the opportunity to shine!  Really, what can go wrong?

So because we are suffering from a lack of imagination right now we are gonna share with you 2 photos.  These were taken yesterday by our pawrents.  See if you can find the mama killdeer birdie with her 3 babies.  They blend in really well!  If you can't find them (and you will have to bigify it) go to the next photo for the arrows pointing to them.


Did you find them? Do you give up?

Finally, we are kinda concerned about our pal Bilbo.  He isn't feeling too good so make sure you stop over and see him.

Hi guys, I know you are getting so excited about your retreat! I found one chick in the top pic but that was it. Killdeer are such interesting birds.
Hope you have a fantastic day!

The BAR is going to be very exciting. We did not see the Killdeer. They are good at hiding. Prayers for your friend.

How can it be only 16 days away? We are going to be so miffed if Mom doesn't get her rear in gear and send our Flatpets!

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

We just sent POTP to Bilbo....and we had to have the arrows to see the little birdies (we thought they were mud spots.)

Now, you have explained to Easy that Blogville does NOT need any DIY work done (by his pawrents) while you're gone, haven't you?!!

The Army of Four said...

Oooooh, our mom loves Killdeer -- especially the little babies! She spotted them right away!

We found the momma but needed the arrow to see the babies! We used to have some come to our place every year. Mom loved getting up early in the morning and the little ones would be running around. we are sending our prayers to Bilbo

Jessie and I are super duper excited, but Momma says she can't think about it until next week, after her Renny-sauce faire is over!

Mark Muller said...

yep, what can go wrong with me in the blogville office? ... I promise we will have no diy-projects and the mama stays outside of the office hahahahaha

Millie and Walter said...

Our pawrents almost ran over a killdeer sitting on a nest in a gravel parking lot of a nursery. Luckily our dad saw it and kept mom from running her over.

Cara n Crew said...

The BAR sure is coming up quick! we hope everybuddy has fun.
We picked out two of the killdeer but not the one in the gravel. our mom says there are lots of their nests where she works but she can never find them, just the adults doing the wounded bird routine to draw her away.
