Tuesdays With Tag - The Gift That Keeps On Giving...

Brynwood Needleworks - Taggart In The North Field
Hi, Everybody!
Well, it's been pretty nice around here this past week.
The weather has been good, even if it's chilly for Mom and Dad. I have a nice fur coat, so it never bothers me. We got lots of runnin' around time outside, and I even took a little hike into the north field (Dad had to come up and get me, 'cuz once I get a whiff of somethin', my hearin' seems to go. He wasn't real happy with me, so I decided it was best if I didn't talk back. I just ran back to the house.
Brynwood Needleworks - Romeo
You'll remember the visitor that showed up for my Birthday...my Birthday Pheasant! Well, he's back and hangin' around. He's makin' all kinds of noise, 'cuz he's lookin' for a girlfriend. Mom's called him "Romeo". Appropriate, right?
Brynwood Needleworks - Romeo and The Blackbirds

He hung around for a real long time. He was peckin' at the bird seed, stretchin' and callin' in an attempt to attract a pheasant of the female persuasion. He's wearin' his feathery finery, and lookin' goooooooddd! 
The redwing blackbirds showed up for a little chow, too, so it made for a real nice photograph. Mom called them "Romeo and The Blackbirds". Wouldn't that make a great name for a bird band?

Mom took out more birdseed (it has corn in it), after he flew off for the night, so he'll have more food the next time he shows up. The Girls haven't seen him yet, and woe be to him if they do. They were bred for birds like him! Good thing they can't fly, but they can run almost like they do. It would sure be a sight.

So, anyway, I wanted you to see he's still hangin' around here. He's truly a gift that keeps on givin'. What next? It's almost a surprise a day. 
Oh, wait! One more thing...Claudette's year old kittens (Crystal and Leo) are still here. Mom looked out the window a couple days ago and they were real focused on somethin' to the west of the Compass Barn. She went out onto the porch to see what was goin' on, only to have the cats bolt into the barn. So, she went back in the house and up to the sewing studio. 

Once upstairs, she looked out the door to the airing porch and saw a woodchuck runnin' up to the wood shed! So, we have another cool critter livin' here. She said we're just gonna leave him (or her) alone. No puttin' food out or anythin' like that. They'll be just fine without our help.

So, I think that's all the news that's fit to print this week. I'll be takin' notes, though, to make sure I don't forget to tell you anythin' important next time we're together. Bye for now! Smooches.

I'll see you again in seven. 'til then...
"Corgi On, Corgi Strong!"


  1. Looks like you had some fun sniffin'.
    Romeo is so handsome.
    I love your Mom's bird feeders.

    1. Hi Miss Marilyn:
      I'd like to really sniff on him, for sure! lol Mom trudges out to those feeders all winter long, no matter what the weather's doin'. She's real committed to helpin' them in the cold. She said it's almost time to take all of them down to clean them and disinfect them. Then most of 'em will hang in the barn until fall. She only keeps a couple out in the summer...plus the hummin'bird feeders, too.
      Thanks for your note.

  2. Tag it looks like you have an Audubon society gathering at your homestead. So many interestin things to watch and chase and explore. Happy week of explorin.

    1. I think you're right, Miss Sherry! Yesterday, Boo started barkin' her fool head off, so I jumped on the couch next to her and joined right in. Mom and Dad love that! (not) Anyway, she was barkin' cuz there were two deer on our lawn next to the north field. I barked cuz I like to. I only knew there were deer cuz I heard Mom and Dad talkin' about it when I wasn't barkin' my fool head off. hee hee
