ok..so more random..

Yes, today was long.  The longest day of  the year..and long because I'm excited for tomorrow..

Kinda like the first day of school...well..without the pink sponge rollers.

..or the new #2 pencils..the blister-producing new shoes..

anyway...tomorrow is our first annual { yes, I have decided..}Gathering of the Blogging Buddies lunch at Archibald's in the beautiful Gardner Village..

It will be "Breezy", "Life in Red Shoes", "All My Memories" , "Arizona Photos" , "CATIZ4PAWPAW". and of course, "Main Street Memories".

...oh and I am sooo mad!  I am trying to invite "Melinda's Fabric & Fancies" and "Random Musings From My Point of View"..but blogger is doing that thing again where, after I comment, it loops forever and brings me back..and won't let me comment!!  Grr...!

And because I don't have your emails, if you are reading this and can make it at 12:30, tomorrow, Wednesday, June 22nd...Please do!!!

Then, I woke up cranky this morning ..no, not Mr. B..silly..I was cranky.

Well, until our walk when we turned the last corner and I spotted something out of the corner of my eye..at the corner of a building..

One pretty quail....and 6 (!) little quail-ettes!! They were sooo little..and kind of  running in a million different directions..I wanted to run to get my camera..but they wouldn't have waited..

{this is not them..but look at all those little left-legs..in the air..at the same time!!}
But you know..."I" saw them and they made MY day better :-)

{also not mine...but, awww..}
So, be sure to look around every corner...and be expecting bunches of little-feathered-love!

...so, plan on joining us next year for the Second Annual Gathering of the Blogging Buddies...Utah style!

Quail-ettes??? When they get all frenzied like that, are you sure they aren't "Quail-Ludes"????

(HAHAHA, sometimes I crack myself up!!)

Very cute....

Pearl said...

To funny Quail-Ludes! I get to watch them all the time in my back field, real sweet and dang there fast. Wish I could be there for your blogging buddy party. Ahh well there's always next year.

Laurie said...

Oh how I wish I were closer, what fun it would be to join in on the lunch! I'll try to contact Melinda and tell her to pop on over! Have fun, I'll be there in spirit!!

Karen said...

Vicki aka Jake said...

HAHAHA, I'll be there, but not as ALL MY MEMORIES. Maybe ALL MY YESTERDAYS or CHANGE in a BOTTLE or maybe even JUST CALL ME JAKE. I know, so many personalities it's hard to keep track. Try being ME! Anyhoot...It's gonna be a fun first time:) See ya then...

Holly said...

I am so jealous! Jo and I want to be there with you all. Have a great time with the blogging buddies!

just call me jo said...

Yes, Holly and I will be there in spirit. Set two Diet Cokes at two empty seats and pretend it's us. You will have such a good time. Aren't quail adorable! Who can have a bad day with baby birds...? Not you guys!

Sounds like fun ... wish I could join you.

We have lots of quail running around our neighborhood here (Lake Havasu) and have had for months but no babies. I keep waiting ...
