Deer or Kitties

Well, we are on to new movies at our house. Her two new favorites are both by Walt Disney, "Bambie" and "The AristoCats". Both are great movies with some great music.

In "Bambie", Mattie May loves the little animals and giggles almost any time the little animals are together. Here is her (and my) favorite from "Bambie" -

You might wonder, how a house full of hunters can enjoy this movie since it has such a negative view of people that hunt. Well, it is simple. This movie shows people that are not true sportsmen. These people shoot at anything. They have no regard for the animals or the forest. A true sportsman would never shoot at a doe that has a fawn with her, which is exactly what happens when Bambie's mother is shot. Also, the camp site is left unattended and the forest catches fire. So Mattie May knows that these "men" are not true sportsmen.

She also enjoys watching "The AristoCats" or kitties as she calls it. This movie has some great music and is the reason we are now stuck on two movies instead of one. The movie is about some pampered cats that study art and music.

This is one of my favorite songs -

The cats are lost and found by an alley cat that helps them get home, but they meet some of his friends in the process. These are his friends -

This song is why we are now watching two movies. She loves to get up and dance to this song and it gets her all wired. So we can not let her watch it to late at night.

So we will continue to watch these movies until she discovers something new, but we don't mind!

I am a comma!

Happy Birthday to my Favorite Fisherman

If you know me, you know I love to fish. You also know that we keep up with the pro fishermen like other people keep up with pros in other sports. I have favorites like Hank Parker, Kevin VanDam (KVD), Fish Fishburn, and Ish Monroe. But non of these guys are my favorite!

My all time favorite fisherman lives with me and takes me fishing with him! Today is his birthday, and we celebrated this weekend by fishing two tournaments! We even weighed fish both days.HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEETHEART

Yard Work

I know some of my bloggy friends are up North where it is still cold. But here in Texas, we have once again skipped through Spring and are beginning Summer. I think it got in the high 80's today and there was work to be done in the yard. So Grumpy let Mattie May help him today. I hope this will bring some warmth to those of you that are still cold.

First, she gave water to Kot'n (our dog). She is very good about feeding and watering her.

Then, wearing Lolo's gardening gloves, helped Grumpy water the yard.

She took a little break from the hose by squeezing the water out of the gloves into the grass.

She then decided this was the way she wanted to water.

Ok, through with the gloves, she goes back to helping with the hose.

By this time she was so wet and just kept running around the planter and into the stream of water Grumpy had going.

She actually did help by getting most of the grass watered. It helps that we have such a small yard, so it doesn't take long to get it finished, even if it is the first time you were doing the watering. We will be getting some more flowers in the next couple of weeks. I can't wait for her to help get those planted.
