Finally a chance to sit down outside and enjoy the peace of nautre and the pretty songs of the happy birds.......

Apparently Frankie thought the birds needed a little baxkground singing..

And then the second video Merry Myrtle is Not really joining'll see how she's just trying to "manage" the annoyingly off key vocalizations!

How to interrupt a quiet moment:

Franke's voice even annoys Merry Myrtle!:

Love to all!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Yah, how does Sally do such good videos and we don't know how. (no offense Sally) I would love to post a video but I'm clueless. I see Myrtle telling Frankie she is going to chew on his leg until he hushes up. She is more the strong silent type.

And then Myrtle nipping at Frankie...hilarious!!!  laughinglaughinglaughing

Sahana a d Penny, you guys crack me up with the "thought bubbles" of Merry Myrtle! Spot in!!

Michelle has heard Frankie's shrill yodaling all tne way in Idaho (or is it Iowa?!). He's somewhat "in tune" in this video!

Lori and Bonne! It really is disturbing that I can post a video and you can't!winker Pretty pitiful girls!!! Too funny!!

I know you remember when I took videos of Happy Hannah, half the time she wasn't even in the frame! I used my Acer Tablet at the time and it only had a front...facing camera. Anyway, whatever it was, you couldnt see what you were filming! And you had to take a Dramamine before viewing! The screen faced Happy Hannah and the back of the tavlet faced me.

So having this Samsung where I can actualky see what Imq photographing helps tremendously! I use Youtube for the videos, photobucket doesnt work as well for me..or I for it!!

Love you!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!

I LOVED how Myrtle tried to silence him .... LOL !!!!

These are great ... boy oh boy do you have talkers! Jasper Lily heard this and was cocking her big old dumbo ears trying to figure it all out. Thankfully she didn't chime in! :-)  


But she did have a bark-fest at 130 a.m. so perhaps it was a delayed reaction on her part. She's not the sharpest tack in the shed always!

Thank you for sharing!!!!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
