Shazaam Monday

Hi Everybody! Well, my hope to spend the weekend observing butterflies was a bit of a bust……until I told the universe that I planned to get Mom to photograph me under the butterfly bush this weekend, we were seeing bazillions of the little boogers……at least 10-15 covering the butterfly bush every day it was sunny. Who knew that the minute I SAID that, the butterflies would abandon ship and leave the area???? That is except for ONE butterfly.  One brave butterfly (probably the same guy who visited me Saturday!), there were no herds, crowds, flocks, or bunches of butterfly visitors.  Word travels fast around here.

Birds, and bees, but only one butterfly?  What's with that?????

Birds, and bees, but only one butterfly? What’s with that?????

However, I DID get a lot of out time……Mom and I were on the back deck for a couple of hours – her in the shade under the umbrella keeping an eye on me and me alternating between under her chair in the shade and out by my butterfly bush with a hopeful look on my face.  So fresh air was good and it was in the low 80s and really BEAUTIFUL.  Not a total loss, eh???

The newly discovered (after 11 years!) deck on the house

We’re sorry if we’ve missed commenting on your bloggy lately but as you know (or at least some of you said you had this problem too) good old Word-Depressed has got clogs in the mail delivery line lately so people are missing notices from blogs – it’s downright awful and if you follow a gazillion blogs (we don’t QUITE follow a gazillion but it might be a bazillion or so) it’s tough to remember to stop by all of them without those little reminders in your inbox!   I hereby cast a spell on Word-Poop…………………BEGONE CLOGGED MAILTUBES – BEGONE GREMLINS OF MAIL DELIVERY!   (gosh I hope that works and doesn’t backfire on me!!)

Sammywhammy

Hopefully my magic wand and spells are working right – otherwise it might be raining frogs here any minute…………..

I’ll let you know!   Tee Hee  

Happy Shazaam Monday!

Your Grand Wizard, Sammy

TUESDAY TEASER TOMORROW

      • Thank you for the “healing hugs”. I am not usually much of a whiner but I am miserable and prone to fits of cranky. I have been watching the kitties briefly here and there but staring at the computer screen all scrunched up makes things hurt worse. I tried the iPad but that doesn’t work either! Cranky won’t go away until it either rains or Fall gets here 🙂

    You can make a snack-bar for the butterflies. You can mix red wine 1:1 with sugar, then you place some pieces of a string in it till the sugar-wine mix is on this pieces. Now you can hang this strings in your trees and the butterflies will come for a party. (I have no clue, if only butterflies like it, or if the wasps will come too as gate-crashers) A guy of a butterfly-garden showed us the trick. btw: I’m sure your magic spell will work, because today is magic monday :o)
