The Bird Show

 
 
click on the link to find out a little more...
 
 

 
 
this was the coolest show ever...
 
some of the birds flew in from the Big Texas Ferris Wheel.....
 

we were so amazed that the birds of prey...
could be trained so well...
 

today was a busy day....
with the cooler temps...the morning low was 39 degrees...
a record for this date...it only lasted a few minutes....
but was still a record...
my phone was ringing...people needing their heat...
 

 
I had errands to run today....
I forget that it was a holiday...
every where was crowded...
especially for a Monday....
it was sunny....after a grey weekend...
everyone was out to soak up the sun...
on a nice cool day....
this is a cute little part of the show...
 
If you aren't registered to vote...

Hey Deb! So good to hear from you today! I love going to the Texas State Fair, but we haven't been in several years. (last time the youngest, now 25, was showing a steer!)

those darn photos full of background clutter. I guess that's the difference in professional and novice... ah well... yet another thing to achieve!

Glad you like my canning jar light fixtures.. I just adore them! Hope you'll come visit again too!

blessings. Dixie

Live birds! Sooooo cooool!

Love the owl. Or is it a falcon? Yeah, a falcon! Back-in-the-day, they needed to train such. For food, I guess.

Amazing! Just amazing! Can you imagine having that majestic bird, perched on your gloved hand???? Wow!

i cant type, that old mcdonald singing bird has me ROFL.. so funny. love that video. we always vote and our early voting starts on the 27th, we will vote then. we like the early voting, when we were working, we used to be late for work standing in lines. no early voting then, now we are retired, and we go when everyone is working and walk in and right out.
