Micah's Gotcha Birthday
Rusty: We don't usually post on the weekend any more, but we can't let Micah's special day pass unnoticed. This is Micah's 4th Gotcha Day, and since we don't know when he was born, we just celebrate this special day as his birthday too. He is about 5 or 6 years of age now.
Cyndi: Happy 4th Gotcha 5th/6th Birthday, Micah!
Taylor: That's quite a mouthful, Cyndi. Let's just celebrate!
We would like to add a note regarding yesterday's post, Headless and Wing Flapping. From the comments and emails received, we are certain the headless bird is a hawk. We're not positive what type.
Merci: Even though they're not the greatest pictures, after what she had to do to get the shots, Jan is pretty pleased with the end results.
Buddy: An obvious question is, if the hawk turned around, why didn't Jan just walk around the tree where she could get a front shot of the bird - hopefully with a head? The answer is that in order to walk around the tree, Jan would have had to climb an 8-foot high fence with barbed wire on top while carrying three dogs. If she survived the climb - and the fall - she would have been arrested for trespassing on private property. We couldn't afford to pay her bail, so we're content with a decapitated hawk and ruffled feathers.
