Okay this is my week for silly stuff apparently.  Someone sent me these and I cannot find a source to credit with them, so here they are without credit.  If someone knows, please let me know, and I'll add.

In the meantime, prepare to laugh out loud....

Funny stuff, Barb - especially the gay bull! LOL
About the kibbles on the floor - if you'd follow my example, you wouldn't have that problem: simply don't ever get out the vacuum cleaner! (Well, I do, but only when absolutely necessary.  I have a sign: "A clean house is the sign of a wasted life."  LOL!  No one would ever accuse my life of being wasted based on *that* criterion!

Uncomfortably warm here in southern PA today - in the 70s, so I dug some culottes out of winter storage.  How I long for the evenings when I can snuggle into my soft, fluffy robe, and have Lady on my lap. . . . 153 days 'til October. . . . :(

I'ts almost 30 days since anyone visited. I think that must be a record of sorts.
I'm popping in to just say 'hi' and wondering what everyone is doing on this long weekend?
Here in Canada, it's Victoria weekend and I think in the States it's Memorial weekend, next weekend. Am I right?
Today, it rained, then the sun came out for an hour, then it rained again, sunny again, rain again. Made me dizzy, it did!
Anyway, tonight, I'm having my fav. tea. Anyone want to join me?

Hi Wendy,

Sorry you didn't have any company last night.  I've been on the road a lot and just can't seem to keep up with everything.  We finally have lovely weather here in Indiana, and the yards and gardens are looking bright and lush.

Is anybody a birder?  Yesterday I caught a glimpse of a bird that I've never seen before.  It was deep indigo blue, very glossy, but I don't think it was an indigo bunting (although I'm no expert so maybe it was).  It was probably 5-6 inches long, and when I saw it, it appeared to be hovering over some flowers.  I just caught a glimpse so I can't say that it truly was hovering - that was just the quick look that I caught.  It was curved  like the letter "C" as though it was looking at the flower.

Very strange.  Any thoughts, anyone?  I've never heard of a hummingbird that large or that blue, but it certainly made me think of a hummingbird.  Darn, wish I knew more about birds....

Anyway, everyone have a lovely Sunday.  Maybe we can sit on the Cafe's outdoor patio and sip lemonade this afternoon.

Hello everyone..........I don't know much about birds, Barb, but I feed them everyday........The sparrows are my little buddies...I think my Kelsey girl visits me through them...The bird you saw sounds lovely....Sorry I can't be of help identifying it......
 
A tall lemonade (with some of your sugar free/fat free :)) peanut butter cookies) and a nice long chat sound good to me....I'll meet everyone at the southwest corner table (with the cafe pic that Colleen provided for us) a little later....Can't wait........
 
Cheers and a lovely Sunday to all.........Ruth

Well, great to see Mags, Ruth and Barb around for a cuppa, as Mags says.
I looked up larger hummingbirds on google, Barb, and there is a blue throated hummingbird that grows to about 5 or 5 1/2 inches. The male is blue and a blue-grey colour. I don't know any other bird that hovers either, do you? Anyway, on a few of the sites that I checked the picture of the bird is quite stunning. Lucky you if you did see one as they usually live in New Mexico, Texas or Arizona, but will stray and live elsewhere too before migrating.
My dear dad lived where there were so many birds in the central part of British Columbia. I've seen many varieties of tiny hummingbirds at the feeder he had for them. I've also seen beautiful Bluejays with crests that truly were magnificent. Also many varieties of sparrows, woodpeckers and robins too.
Because now Dad lives near me and doesn't have his deck ourside anymore to enjoy bird activity, I purchased a little book of the varieties of birds in North America. We've spent many hours enjoying the pictures as I read about the birds to him.
Near where I live, at the waterfront, a bird sanctuary has been established where 'birders' go to check on bird counts, and also the varied breeds that are established there.
Furthur up the coastline of British Columbia, there is a place called Brackendale, where in the springtime, hundreds of eagles fly and congregate. Whether they nest there, I'm not sure. If you look up eagles Brackendale, on google, I'm sure that you'd find out a lot about it, if you are interested.
Last year, did anyone hear about the webcam that was positioned on a nest of eagles and over a month, the eggs actually didn't hatch properly. There was another somewhere where the webcam actually showed the eaglets hatching. It was magical.
Who loves owls? I do. Some of the owls in my province now are on the endangered species. But, with good environmental help and conservationists, the numbers are very slowly increasing. Hurrah!
Well, anyone for a piece of sponge cake today?
Here in my end of Canada, it's been a day of springtime rain all day. I've spent part of the day, re-potting plants and potting some lovely pansies, lobelias, allyssum, calibrachoa, and short version of sweet peas. They look so lovely in the blue pots. Now if the sweet peas will only bloom later in the month!
Oh yes, if you see the hummingbird again, Barb, maybe take a photo of it and then we can see it too?
Bye now on this rainy weekend.
I'll have a spicy ginger green tea please?

Just dropping by to join the bird-watching out on the patio with you all. How wonderful you have made us such a wonderful place to do this, EdW! If you can get away someday from all you kindly do for us, drop by and we will buy you a drink or at least toast you. I will pick up the tab!

I actually was by about 2 weeks earlier, Sweet Wendy, for some Peanut Butter Kibble Cookies but no-one dropped by so I ate, made merry and left. I Googled as you suggested and I am wondering if it is a Honey-creeper which many people apparently have as their little feather-children and sadly might explain why it was in your neck of the woods, Barb. If it doesn't look familiar, well we all can marvel over the little fellow anyway because he truly is spectacular!!!



It's good to see you all here and I hope if you don't mind if I ask Mags a technical question. How does one like me, a techno-flop extraordinaire - send a song to someone by e-mail when it is protected. I thought if I had ticked off the save permission rights automatically it would also go with the song when I e-mailed it but apparently not. Poor Ruth tried to no avail to open a song I sent to her. Any suggestions for me as you are great with technology Mags and I truly am baffled! Sigh! :(  Sorry again, Ruth!!!

Well I hate to eat and run but I wanted to finish seeing "The Queen" again before I have to return it tomorrow. Did anyone see it when it was out in the theatres? Helen Mirren gives the most amazing performance I think I have ever seen. I truly forgot she wasn't the Queen!!! Absolutely extraordinary!

Colleen, I don't know about files with protections on them, but one other way .. is ... you could download Audacity ... play the song ... set Audacity to 'Stereo Mix' and press Record, save it as a .mp3 file and send that.
 
What song is it?  Isn't there a Link to it or is it one you were sent or sang yourself?   And what kind of file is it?
 
Must dash ... tea time here ...

So many good replies about the Mysterious Indigo Bird.  I haven't seen it since but will keep my eyes peeled.  (What a strange phrase...gotta wonder where it came from.  I certainly do NOT want to peel my eyes.)

Anyway, I am still in a whimsical mood, I guess.  Was watching the silly cats play musical bowls this morning....

What? You want me to use that bowl?
But this one’s better, I’m sure.
How do I know?
Because you filled it up for HER.

Sorry, Barb - my best field guide is at the cabin.  I do know that the *only* hummingbird generally found east of the Rockies is the ruby-throated hummingbird.  I've never heard of a blue creeper, but it certainly looks like a possibility if the area's right.   I'll see what I can find in my field guide here.

It looks like the mysterious bluebird has really created a stir here now. So far, no definite breed it seems has been decided upon.

The photo that Colleen provided shows such a beautiful bird indeed. Here on the West Coast, most birds are coloured to blend into the green plant/bush and brown tree trunk foliage. So any brightly coloured birds are usually canaries or budgies who have escaped homes.

I forgot to mention that just beside where I live is a crow's nest at eye level on a nearby tree to my deck. I think so far that there are just eggs, no baby crows yet, as the 'daddy' keeps returning to the nest to feed the mom, from the little that I can see through the leaves. Now if I could swing a webcam over there, it would be great and we could have a live-cam here at Petloss for awhile, til the babies are nudged from the nest to the ground to learn to fly.

I think the folks who walk along near the tree will find the crows protective and diving to keep them away from the babies once they are on the ground.

Shall I make a sign, 'Beware, crow parents may appear out of nowwhere to protect baby crows?'

It will make a bit of amusing entertainment watching the unknowing dodging flying birds and running down the road!
I'll let you know more as the month ahead unfolds.

I'm wondering how many who visit here enjoy Animal Planet? It's on a digital station in Canada and only since March have I been able to watch it. My Saturday mornings now are taken with watching a Vet show and an Ape show. The latter is a series following the adventures of workers, vets and carers with chimpanzees and apes in the wild and in animal wildlife parks. I have a dream of one day either visiting such a park or volunteering to help in an orphanage of orangutans or chimpanzees. Have any of you had any such experiences?

Well, now my shows are over for this week, it's time for my morning early grey tea, please and I'd love a raisin scone with some raspberry jam.

Anyone care to join me today?

Have a good weekend everyone, especially if you are celebrating the U.S. Memorial Day weekend.

Raisin scone and raspberry jam sounds lovely!! I'll join you, Wendy!

I can just see you swinging from the branches, setting up that live cam for your birds, perhaps we ought to have a live cam of you ?

Chimps ... right on cue, someone I was talking to locally is involved in trying to move Martha, a chimp.  It's another way to get involved; if you're interested, PM me and I'll send you the link.

Is anyhone interested in a get together and to share some tea?
Okay, everyone disappeared near the end of May, where did you go?
Spring cleaning and planting all the new flowers must be finished by now.
I just went to check on the crow's nest and can't see any little beaks or tiny black heads showing yet. So perhaps soon they'll be hatching. I hope so as my building is due for a painting and that will disturb the babies, I've no doubt.
Don't worry, I'll be outside making sure that painters keep well away from the tree!
Today, on the Pacific West Coast we are having a deluge of rain. Unfortunately, near my home is a 10 hour Relay for Life, a fund-raiser for the Cancer Foundation. Such a shame the sun's not shining. Bless their souls running in the rain, hour after hour taking their turns. I do hope they have lots of hot soups and coffee!
Come sit down and visit awhile.
Almost summer here in the northern hemisphere!
Ah, yes, my green tea has arrived.

Hi Wendy, yes, I'd love to sit a while and sip some tea.  I've discovered white tea with lemon (decaf of course) by Stash.  I love it in the evening, and it's so satisfying to know it won't make me wakeful.  Plus, I can offer some sugar-free almond macaroons.  Sound good?

I spent the day today cleaning up the considerable tree debris from the high winds we had Wednesday and Thursday of this week.  I lost count of the number of wheelbarrow loads I gathered - and that was *after* I removed all the big stuff 4 and 5 inches in diameter.  So now I'm feeling pretty smug and definitely ready to put up my feet and relax.

Oh - remember my blue bird?  I haven't seen it again, but I've about concluded that it is an indigo bunting.  We have them in Indiana but don't actually sight them very frequently.  And a typical behavior for them is to fly low hunting for insects in flowers and vines, stuff low to the ground.  That little glimpse I had fits that pattern.  But since I haven't seen it again, it could easily be one of the other beautiful birds suggested by the Petloss Cafe Clan.  Thank you, everybody, for the research and the good suggestions.

Let's all enjoy the weekend together....

Just dropping by very belatedly to say the drinks are on me as I fear I owe everyone I know a letter or two. So drink up my dear friends and if we try, we can forget what a lousy correspondent I am.

I still haven't figured out how to send the song I wanted to send but I thank you very kindly Mags for your suggestion of Audacity. You cracked me up though when you perhaps audaciously :) suggested maybe it was of me singing. I truly think not, dear heart, which is what you all would think if you ever had heard me sing too. But drink up some more and maybe I just might get up on the piano tonight with Sweet Wendy and belt out a song or two. (Until someone gives me the hook, that is! )

Speaking of warbling, I had to look up what an indigo bunting was, Barb, and what a beautiful little bird. I even found its call. So maybe we can all sit here on the patio this pleasant evening and listen to the birds singing. Indigo Bunting (Just press twice where it says listen.) It gives a city girl like me such a peaceful feeling listening to them although Atticus is trying desperately to find them.

I also wanted to share several pictures my friend sent me. She is really into identifying and taking pictures of flowers lately and sent me these two she took today. The first is called "Field Pussytoes" and she managed also to get a picture of the rarer domestic species of it.

 


Field Pussytoes 

 

 

House Pussytoes 


Well on that note... perhaps I will grab my drink and run while the going is good.

Hey, a Saturday night party!
Great to see everyone here too!
Thanks dear Colleen for the treats and the cute photographs. I checked out the bird song site and it's fabulous. I'll have to take my dad to the computer room where he lives and he can decide what bird song he'd like to hear. It will be sweet to his ears as where he used to live, birds sang all day long.
Sorry to hear that you had more storms, Barb. Glad you were able to get the clean up done and now can relax as Colleen tries her rendition of her fav. Celine Dion song! Watch out for those high notes, Colleen. Take a sip of hot tea first and that may help!
Where's the piano chick when I want to dance on the piano?

Did I hear singing -   Stand By Your Side ?
 
I'll have ... what was it, I had yesterday ... at the Botanical Gardens?  Something cool, something fruity, but not enough of it !

I liked those bird songs, what a great site.

Hi everyone, nothing like a Sunday night drink :-) this is the first I've stopped by the bar. Today I went to some beautiful beautiful gardens and you all have reminded me I saw a mystery bird there I need to look up. Lots of gorgeous flowers too, gardens are the best! My kitties are petitioning for a snack, silly ones... they just had dinner!

Is there a happy hour here at the bar?

Hi Jo,
Welcome to the cafe! You asked about a Happy Hour and my answer to that is that every hour is Happy Hour here. Am I right, regulars?
I mean the piano chick often just snoozes in a corner for any new requests. Sing-songs are just anytime and often go on and on, all the while the behind the bar, Hazel, is soooo pleased to be busy again.
Sometimes, this place turns into a dusty ghost town and then all of a sudden, everyone visits again. Which is wonderful indeed.
So, do drop by often. Many times the drinks are on Mags, as that was the decision at the beginning of the cafe opening on this new Petloss server site, awhile ago now. Sometimes though, others offer to pay the tab.
That's when I'll order a lovely mocha, or a chai latte!!!!
We are always interested in having a chat about rare birds, as with Barb's recent inquiry about her rare sighting of a lovely blue bird. Also, dear Colleen is a wealth of information for pictures, links and recently a lovely link for bird songs. Check it out!
Anyway, I just wanted to say, "Welcome!' to you, Jo.
Tell me, what are your favorite flowers?
Time for a green tea today and perhaps a piece of lemon loaf.

Hi Wendy, thanks for the welcome. There must be something about Sundays as I find myself back at the bar for a refill! This weekend I saw wild turkeys, and a beautiful deer with a fawn.

I have always been partial to tulips, but really I like most any flowers, the more colorful the better. My mom reports she just planted a bedfull of California poppies - her neighbors were pulling them up, can you believe it, so she rescued them to across the street.

I think it's time for an iced cappuccino, it's quite hot here this eve, and I'd really like some key lime pie, haven't had that in a long time.... yum!!!! This cafe is really lowcal, eh? gotta love that!

Nearly June!
Okay, it's been so darn quiet lately, no talk of blue birds, birds of any kind or flowers either. Where is everyone?
I thought I'd just visit before the long weekend in both Canada, (our July 1st, Canada Day) and the U.S. for July 4th, (Independence Day) and maybe we can decorate the cafe for the holidays. Not to mention the BBQ out back.
So, everyone, hope you can make it around noon on Saturday and Sunday and we'll have a great meal, coffees and maybe a movie or sing song later on.
R.S.V.P.? anyone?
I'll treat for the drinks!
If you can't make it, have a great weekend!

A BBQ on Saturday at noon, yes could make that I think?   Can we have some dancing as well?
 
Sunday could be a bit more difficult, I might be late.....
 
Perhaps I ought to pop in an ad. for more waiters/waitresses ... gotta be prepared to work hard, on occasions and plenty of breaks in between .. Barb will sort the pay ... and Colleen sews the new uniforms .. and Wendy does the training program ... and many other people partake of the service.  Applications with references please.... deadline for ever ..

A first in four years.
Where was everyone for Canada Day on July 1st and then Independence Day on July 4th. Was everyone in Boston at the Boston Pops concert hosted by Craig Ferguson. My goodness but the fireworks during the show (on my t.v.) were fantastic. I cannot imagine how they were 'in person!'
Anyway, I dropped by for a little cranberry, soda and lime as it's a very warm day out here on the west coast of Canada.
How is everyone doing with summertime weather?
My treat today!

Hello to all.........Well, I was able to spend the 4th with a good childhood friend and her family in Pensacola, FL........It was wonderful catching up with her and spending time on the beach......
We continue to have rain and more rain here in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, but I'm not complaining...We were in drought conditions too long, and the constant rain waters my flower gardens, and they look great!!!
Thanks to sweet Wendy for holding us all together here at the cafe...You mentioned lemon loaf a while back, Wendy.....I think I'll have a slice or two :)) of that and cranberry with lime sounds wonderful!!!!!
Hope everyone's summer is going well!!!!
 
God Bless you all............Kelsey's Mom  (Ruth)

Okay, not too many folks visiting despite the summer weather being either too hot or really rainy all over the globe! Mary (Cheech's and Freddy's mom) in Ireland has told me that in Ireland it just keeps being stormy day after day! Here on the West Coast we're in the middle of a heat wave with tonight a break from the heat with someclouds and a little rainfall. For which I'm grateful indeed!
Glad to see you drop by, Ruth, and hope you enjoyed the cranberry, soda and lime. Tonight, I've just seen a recipe for cucumber, mint leaves and tonic or sparkling water punch. That just sounds so cooling that I think I'll have to try one of those tonight!
Anyone care to join me? Also, lets make some popcorn and throw on a movie here at that cafe. Any favorites from the crowd?

How about a film of some lovely scenery?  I'm not into murder mysteries ... don't mind a bit of romance ... not keen on war films ...
 
And if I was a drinker, I would have a cold beer ... as I'm not, anyone care to dance hectically?

Hey Mags, great to see you here once again!
How about 'The English Patient' as a scenic and a tiny bit romantic a movie to watch here at the Cafe?
So, where is everyone else these days?
All summertime, it's been like a ghost town at the Cafe. Perhaps we need another Open House. What does anyone else think?
Anyone want to join me in a Blackberry tea? Yum!
Also, how has everyone's summer's been? Any interesting trips or adventures?
Do tell.
Looking forward to the stories!
Time for my tea now. Bye.

I think Summer is about to begin here, my Azalea is now flowering.  I seem to remember it flowered in Spring last year?
 
Well, let's hope we have some Summer soon, otherwise we'll be changing the clocks before we know it.
 
Is there a Country that does not change their clocks?

I'm not sure Mags, but there are a few states in the U.S. that don't observe DST.  Arizona is one of them, and I can't think of the others.  I always wonder how they adjust when the rest of the country is changing...

To answer your question also about DST, Mags, in Canada there are a couple of areas that don't observe DST, or that they do and then don't change back. I can't remember. I guess it means there's no worries about whether to turn the clock back or forward at the right dates in Spring and Fall. I suspect that it's the areas stay in DST all year to conserve hydro power.

Also, as we all know, millions live in various global areas where the sun rising and setting is the only way of knowing the time or part of the years. So, no DST there.

Does anyone have any ideas about the Open House this month? Maybe we could have it on the last weekend in September? It would be great to have everyone who drops by, visit and stay for a chat perhaps?

I'm dropping by for a strawberry smoothie this morning, before going out in the sunshine for a bike ride today. Anyone want to join me for their fav drink?

Yeah, Wendy, Open House during the last weekend of September would be great ... but like the White Rabbit, I'm running a bit late ... did I miss it?
 
Anyway, I'll have a Cappuchino please?
 
Any waiters or waitresses around?
 
How about the last weekend in October, that's when we in UK change the clocks, which means we get an extra hour in bed or in my case, I may be at a Gig ... or I may be at home, will have to wait and see ?!!
 
Anyone fancy a bit of Rock and Roll or International Folk Dancing ... swirl here there and everywhere, come on, get those feet tapping ...
 
Yay !

Hi Kelseylen: I sorta stumbled along this thread and found your comment on DST in Arizona. Yup Arizona doesn't observe it, but the indian reservation do. Can be very confusing when you are visiting the reservations and seeing the time.

Being from the east coast when I bring people to Las  Vegas and they want to see the Dam I usually get them to take their picture on the dam first under the Nevada clock and then under the Arizona clock.

Hey, Mags,
Great to see your comments a week ago but truly this place is like a ghost town, no one visits the Petloss Cafe anymore!
What to do? Anyone with suggestions as this place used to be busy every day. Where has everyone gone?
The toe tapping will sound pretty hollow with no one around to clap!
Perhaps we need a Halloween party rather than an Open House here.
Do you still have Guy Fawkes night in the U.K.? I recall great bonfires very different from Halloween in North America, that's for sure.
Anyway, I've again had another birthday, can't say that I'm 60 anymore! (but I'm staying at 61 now for all the birthdays to come as any higher a number will feel ridiculous!)
We're having a lovely fall season here on the West Coast of Canada and the trees with their leaves changing colours are simply nature's beauty at it's best.
Hope someone comes to sit awhile and have some 'Gingerbread' tea. It's delicious indeed.

Hello Ruth, Lynn and Wendy ... it's getting crowded, but I think we missed Hallowe'en, the doorbell went loads of times .. makes me go spooky .. and now it's Fireworks Night, they've been going off for a few evenings now, nothing but bang ... bang ... crack ... pop ... but the garden's lovely .. the azalea's blooming (!) .. rose bush is out .. and I went Rock and Rolling just over a week ago ...
 
Also, I'm coming up to a birthday I'd rather forget .. something like 36 ish or is it 63 or is it 3 + 6 = 9 or is it?

What is Gingerbread tea like?

Hiya,

my first visit here, do you serve nice hot chocolate with whiskey in it, and cinnamon, mmm. Yeah had Guy Fawkes night last night, and the few nights before, the pets got quite scared. Also halloween had our border collie Molly barking her head off at everyone, she plays guard dog, funny she always answers the door and yet its never for her!

Hello and WELCOME, Donna !
 
Hot Chocolate with whisky and cinnamon is on the inexhaustable menu of the Cafe Bar ... in fact, anything, anyone fancies in terms of food and drink is available ... and don't forget to visit the cosy corner, where you can tell all your secrets to friends !
 
And in real life, you live in a part of the world from which my Ancesters come, I think there are a lot of 'Scorey' names in your phone book?  But goodness knows how we are all related, my known family lived in Birmingham, Hereford and Essex and now one in Canada.

Hi Mags,

thanks for the welcome. I am just popping in for that lovely hot chocolate after the really nice fish and chip supper I've just had. Needless to say the pets helped me with the fish!

I live just north of southampton in hampshire, its a nice spot. I am quite into family history, I have got most of mine back to the 1700's and they are from dorset (where I originally come from), somerset and hampshire.

Anyhow thanks for the lovely welcome,

Donna

Hi everyone,
Welcome Donna! Now there is another friend to the cafe from 'across the pond!!' I'm in Canada, on the West coast and left for Canada when 6 from Southhampton, although I don't remember that at all. So, I've been where you now live.
It's amazing how quiet the cafe has been lately, don't know why. I think the place is missing the 'oldies' who used to post such beautiful pictures. I miss you all.
Perhaps we can have a gathering for the holidays? We used to have egg nogs, little treats and even popcorn if there was a request for a movie night.
I'm still busy, busy with my dear old dad, who turned 95 in mid-November.
Anyway, happy holidays to all.
Wendy
