Saturday at Shoko’s

I broke my own rule today.  I vowed I would never climb, other than jumping over the fence that is….well today I saw a woodpecker.  You know, the feathery guys with one big long nose that goes tap-tap-tap on the chimney.  Well, I had enough of this Joe Woodpecker and wanted him gone.

Meanwhile Kali was keeping the basket warm so I curled up with her when I got in…….just to keep warm and snuggy.                                                                 SKzmElsewhere in the house, Elfin John was keeping himself amused.

Mom was making Potato and Leek soup for supper and dad was wishing for Chinese food.  Dad won and the potato and leek soup will be savoured another day.

Mom and dad, happy anniversary from Kali and I.  We promise to be good and not barf from overeating for the whole day.  You’ve been married for 44 years…holy dude, that’s like forever.  hehehe
