SPRINGY JUNE SATURDAY

I'LL BE RIGHT HERE IN MY SUN PUDDLE WHILE MOM 
SHOWS YOU ALL JUST HOW SPRING IS GOING.
AS LONG AS I HAVE A SUN PUDDLE I DON'T CARE WHAT SEASON IS HERE.

Dad has the green thumb in the family.  He bought this 
pretty pot and the flowers separately and lo and behold 
look at the pretty he made for our deck.

 I know this is a rodent but what can I say mom thinks
Charley is adorable....and evidently Charley likes to pose.

This is actually a 'real' Carolina Wren house.
We have had it up for 10+ years.  This year is the first time
we've had residents!!!
MAMA WREN TAKING A BREAK FROM THE BABES BUT KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON THEM

MALE EASTERN BLUE BIRD AND MOM'S SECOND

It is I, Madi, all freaky looking.  Mom has had
her iPad for over a year.  Sunday night 5/26/13, she clicked on an
Photo booth icon on the iPad. Lo and behold there are nine different effects you can use for your pictures.
This one is...you guessed it kaleidoscope 


I WAS minding my own business napping in Dad's dining room chair, when crazy pants started snapping and laughing.
When she showed the first on to Dad, he said it looks like a baboon.
Mom said you are almost right it is Madi.....
Oh YES, Mom, there will be demerits

AS YOU CAN SEE I AM NOT AMUSED

WOW WEDNESDAY: WE GOT MAIL

We get especially excited when we get 
furs and bling 
in the mail. 


Mom got crystal bling 

 I got  furs from  my best friend Molly  a Golden Surfer Girl

 This is my very very very first sniff of my
Golden Friend Molly...sniff sniff...


she smells  divine just like I imagined...
I wonder if she uses Mousse on her furs they are very curly

 While I was sniffing Molly's Goldeness
Mom was squealing like a teeny bopper
over this new jewelry made especially for her
by her BFF Kathy 
 You know Mom is a lazy bum RETIRED so she doesn't need
any fancy smancy clothes any more but she does like to buy
a special outfit for any summer events.  She commissioned 
Kathy to make this bling to go with her summer formal wear

Mom said Kathy always knows exactly what Mom wants
If you are having a party, let mom know she has fancy 
things to wear and no where to go!!!
You can visit Kathy's Crystal Creations by clicking
AND YOU MIGHT SEE Molly too.
Ms. Kathy thanks for making mom
squeal like a teeny bopper!
Hugs to you and Molly
Madi

our 
Photographer in Residence
Mad Snapper aka Sandra a
and her sidekicks
Jake and Baby who have their own blog


1. Please introduce yourself(selves), tell us your age (just the pups have to tell their age) and a very special trait.
Jake is 8, Baby is 12 and MadSnapper is 8.5 x Jakes age or 5.7 x Baby’s age. Lets see how many do the math.
2. If you had and alter ego, who would you like to be and why
Jake: cat in dog fur, Baby:Sleeping Beauty, MS:  wannabe Ansel Adams (I think I have taken more photos in 6 months than Ansel did in his life time.
3. What do you like best/least about where you live
Jake: Lizards and the chasing there of.  Baby:holes to China in backyard and the digging there of.    (why oh why does mommy madsnapper yell speak loudly at us about both?)
4. Who are some peeps/furiends you'd like to meet and why
MS would love meet you Madi and Mom, but I don’t think Madi would be to fond of meeting J and B
5. If you could give one piece of random advice what would it be?
If asked by Madi to join her cabinet, do so immediately. I know this because I am Mayor Madi’s personal Photographer and proud member of her cabinet.
6. What do you do for fun
See answer at question 3
7. What is the first thing you do each morning
Pee, Pee and Pee from all THREE of us
8. What is the first thing you notice about a new furiend
Pee Mail
9. Tell us how you came to live in your family and how you got your name.
Jake, badly abused, starving and sick with parvo, from the streets at age 4 months. Jake just looked like a Jake...and we call him Jacob when he is bad.
Baby, badly abused at age 10 months,saved by Telesis rescue from abusive owner and by us for her forever home. Baby’s name was Phoebe and Mom did not like that for a hound dog, think French poodle,  and mommy kept saying it’s ok Baby, we love you Baby and it stuck.
Once at the vets, we were sitting waiting to be called and the assistant Called out. Baby and three of us stood up... BOL there were three dogs named baby in the room. Isn’t mom original?
10. What is your absolute favorite food
Burger, Burger and Burger, answer from  all 3 of us
Bonus:
Mad Snapper please tell us how your mind works? MOL
What mind? BOL LOL MOL
Well what we mean is how it is that you can turn a beautiful photograph into the most creative story.
the short answer is, it just POPS in my mind, I can’t do it on command/request. Most of the time while doing something mindless, like blow drying hair or brushing teeth, the IDEA POPS. I keep a pad in every room and when it POPS I write it down or it POPS right out in 20 seconds.Other times I take a photo Just Because and when I look at it, words Pop Up in my mind. OOPS! I did say what mind?
Oh and tell us the MOST unusual place you have madly snapped.
 Short answer.. Zillions of unusual places.
Long answer...
Odd as in K-Mart parking lot picnic table? Odd as Manatee on the bathroom wall at Goodwill
or Unusual as in Solomon's Castle built out of recycled newspaper printing plates?

Mad Snapper told Mom it was ok for us to 'steal' these photos
which are PRIME examples of her 
SNAPPY QUICK TRIGGER FINGER
