more than ten
may1009_1tenonten
morning walk, fog, flowers, family, fruit salad, Mom's kitties, gifts, afternoon movie with Mom (Grey Gardens...fascinating story!), sweet surprises on my pillow, dinner out, fortunes...then we found a little fledgling by the mailbox when we got home . . .                              
                                                         
We immediately read on what we should do, which is put him in some foliage and he will chirp and the parents will find him, only he didn't do that he hopped out of the foliage and ran (very very fast), tripping and somersaulting, to the middle of the street. We tried other attempts and finally when Case lifted him up the last time he immediately nestled down and fell asleep. So now Case is on the couch with our new birdie sleeping in the warmth of his hands...I hope we can try again with the parents in the morning.may1009_2
                                                                                                                                                                           
: : : Today while celebrating my wonderful mom I participated in the Ten on Ten, taking a photo every hour for ten hours on the tenth day of the month. Mine became a Twelve on Ten only because I couldn't help but post pictures of the fledgling we found hours later after putting together my original "ten." : : :

I think you became the mother of this little birdie today and you should keep him. He looks like an Alister to me!

Aw, that photo with your mother is very sweet!

I hope the little bird makes it.

That fledgling may just be the cutest thing I've ever seen. And it runs really fast?! Eeek! I'm going to explode!
