The Pale Rook

 Is it a bird, a plane?

 No, it's Althea...'tho she did fly here from Scotland.

 And she kept her cool.

Don't you just love the work of really imaginative, talented artists? So do I.  Althea is the work of Johanna, artist and doll maker.  You will find her magical creatures over at The Pale Rook.  She is also on facebook.  Her Etsy shop is usually empty, as her pieces sell out within minutes of her posting on Etsy.

Welcome to The Bunny Bungalow, Althea!

Note: Scooter and Skipper tried to fight me for Althea as soon as they saw her unwrapped this afternoon.  Close call!

Pissing and Moaning

Stink Bug on the front porch and on my camellia this morning
If you want to learn more, click here.

That's me, pissing and moaning.  Or at least I was before getting a new knee.  I had a total knee replacement recently.  Surgery went beautifully but physical therapy is a bitch.  I like to think my knees look better than the bug's knees above.

Observation: If you are "double jointed" as I am, don't expect your two knees to function the same as they did prior to injury/surgery. So, now I have a knee that can pop backwards and one that won't. Feels strange but hopefully I will get accustomed to the different feel.

Confession: I am still pissing and moaning as I recover.  But I do it to myself, as Tall Husband just had a total right hip replacement and needs a brave person nearby.  He will get a left hip replaced as soon as he recovers from this one.  Hope we both live through his next one!

Well Hello!

I planted a dozen bulbs two years ago.  None showed their petals until...I found this one hiding under the azaleas this week.  What a great surprise. Little Tulip, what took so long?
