This is really beautiful LL and /t...
and the zoo pictures are adorable.
Dan is very talented with that camera~ Great expressions and captions with those photos :)

LL- are you ok? I know some terrible storms came near you...I hope you and your family are safe.
-Cora

Little Lamb said...

Thank you, Cora. I'm fine. In my arear at work we had a tornado warning at 12:30, right after lunch until 12:45. We're all fine. Thank youl

Dan said...

Lamb, very nice post indeed. So colorful and patriotic and stuff.

I just now asked you a question on Mona's blog.

Cora, thanks so much for your very kind words!

Dan said...

My answer is here. :)

The Phosgene Kid said...

Very patriotic. As Cora said, hope the storms gave you a pass.

Little Lamb said...

Thank you, kid. Yes, they did. All I had was a warning and nothing else. I can live with that.

Dan said...

Click for answer and for next question. :)

Rat In A Cage said...

Great picture & I liked the photos below also.

Little Lamb said...

Thanks. :)

Mighty Dyckerson said...

Thanks for giving us the bird.

Bird said...

oh little lamb and /t. -

this is wonderful.

wow!

thank you so much for this post.

the eagle is magnificent, of course - and the backdrop of icy, snowy mountains makes this arctic tern feel at home.

i'm especially impressed with the lettering - the white letters fading out leaving me to thnk of two of words that fit here I think:

aria - a solo song - a meloday, orattio (sp?) - operatic of course - but all birds no matter their feathers sing exquisite and elaborate melodies - terns and eagles are not exception.

and

eyrie - a bird's lofty fortress, home and nest.

so this all works together quite nicely for this
american bird.

lots of bird pecks to you both (the gentle kind - :> :> :> cubed to infinity

(now i'd best get on switching to beta - cause blogger wont let me post until i do - so i can link this post to my blog as promised. i'll try to make it a priority. but i am worried that blogger will lose my stuff when i make the switch.)

Little Lamb said...

None of my stuff was lost, Bird.

I'm glad you like it.

carmen said...

i like birds....they are chirpy.

Little Lamb said...

Me too, Carmen.

carmen said...

eagles don't chirp...

Little Lamb said...

No, Carmen, they don't. They're to big to chirp.

/t. said...

neither
do they cheep

being profit-driven
american capitalist eagles, they are too cheap to cheap or chirp

/t.

Little Lamb said...

No, /t. Chirping is beneath the eagles.

carmen said...

they are bores...

Little Lamb said...

No, they're not. And they are big birds, too!

carmen said...

big birds are dumb...eagles look dumb...i like robins...they are small and joyful...

Little Lamb said...

Robins are nice too. I also like eagles

/t. said...

and
eagles
like lambs

/t.

Little Lamb said...

You just don't like Dolly.

/t. said...

little lamb,
that's not true

i like little dolly7...

i like to pick on her -- i like to torment her -- i like to torture her

she's really a lot of fun

/t.

Little Lamb said...

Poor Dolly

MONA said...

little lamb little lamb...Dan went berserk...he put a question for you on my blog...I have taken the liberty to answer that question my way...but the question surely is for you...

Bird said...

i wrote an excellent comment in protest of the eagle bashing, but since i switched to that damn beta - well - now i can't comment as bird and the comment was lost. i must start anew. that wretched commenting box wouldn't accept my google address 'cause it's not activated yet - clearly all beta's fault - I HATE IT WHEN TECHNOLOGY CHANGES! i knew i should skip the whole thing and abandon this blogging thing! i will have a temper tantrum! i will!i will!i will!

i am in a bloody mood. but it is not all beta blogger's fault. there is the matter of that outrageous bird bashing!

all bird bashing of any kind must cease immediately before i descend upon you in full fighting tern wrath - bringing along with me some screaming eagles (oh, you'll be sorry indeed!).

eagles are not dumb,nor are they capitalists. they are glorious, beautiful birds, loyal to their mates, fiercely protective of their offspring, and good providers for the family - cunning and swift.

so no more bashing - or i shall gouge yer eyes out.you won't even be able to weep - not a trace of eye or tear duct shall i leave behind. you'll be left to wonder through blogoshpere, blinded and bleeding, cursing and rueing the day you set yourself up against eagles and the tern!

and if that doesn't do the trick, i will call in the dog - who has promised to thrash those needing thrashing if ever i should call!

flap/flap/flap!
gouge/gouge/gouge!
SWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH!

Bird said...

hah - see what i mean - i was indeed commenting as anonymous above - and blogger jsut decided it was ok to comment as bird.

damnable wretches all the way around.

(carmen, darling, forgive my wrath, i am sure you meant no disrepsect. but do be careful!)

Little Lamb said...

Mona, all has been taken care of.

Atta way Bird! You go, bird!

I too, hate when technology changes.

I'll have to check out your blog bird.

/t. said...

hmmm,

i wonder what
ever happened to
'fly the friendly skies'...

comments here are more like, 'die the fiendly skies'... cool!

/t.

The Phosgene Kid said...

It's not the flying as much as it is making it through all the airport and airline BS. And the security - you are now guilty until proven innocent.

Little Lamb said...

/t., it all depends on what you post around here. Pick on eagles and you get in BIG trouble. with Bird.

Little Lamb said...

Kid, you are so right.

/t. said...

good info,
little lamb

BWAAAH AHAHHHA A HAAA AH HA BA HAHA AHA AH HAHAAHAHAH HA HAHA AHHA AHHA HAH AHA AHAHAHAH AHA AHHAHAHA AHAH AH AHA HAHAHAHA AH AHA AH HAHAHAH AHAH AHA HAHAH A AHHA HAHAHA AHAH AH AHA AHAHAHAHA AHA HAHHA AHAH AHAHA AHAH AAH HAH AHH AH HA HA!

/t.

/t. said...

phos,

yeah...

a blinking cartoon character this week shuts down an entire city... for crying out loud folks... better to die trying than live cowering in fear (most of which is being manufactured by political media puppets to sell us soap to 'security') -- BS!

/t.

Little Lamb said...

The terrorists are winning as much as I hate to say it. It's like we're running scared and they have done nothing since 9-11.

/t. said...

a wise
american
president said,
there is nothing to fear
except fear itself -- we have not forgotten so much as we have been led away from that simple truth

i agree, little lamb -- if we're going to live terrorized, then they won

/t.

carmen said...

eagles are snub-nosed....they are snubs!!!
and they eat lambs, bird...

Little Lamb said...

Carmem, you've got spunk.

carmen said...

LL, i hate eagles dressed up in striped tights ...

Little Lamb said...

Where have you ever seen that, Carmen?

Jack K. said...

Eagles are majestic creatures. You wouldn't think they would need a tern to protect them. I guess one good tern deserves another. (bad pun intended)

Great photo. Poor lambiekins.

Little Lamb said...

Cute pun, I like it. No, that's poor Dollykins. She must be rescued. You can't trust /t. to watch her.

carmen said...

in your pic... the eagle , wings outstretched and things over the big letters in three colors : america!!!

Little Lamb said...

You got it, Carmen! :)

carmen said...

LL, the eaglet...above...see?/

Little Lamb said...

Yes, Carmen, I see.

freya said...

ja is lovely lamb and /t

Little Lamb said...

Thank you, freya.

The Phosgene Kid said...

We used to watch wintering eagles along the Mississippi. Eagles pretty much stick to fish food-wise, but will eat carrion. We scared one off roadkill once.

carmen said...

i like freya...she is a sprach- fehler...

/t. said...

good show
on pbs tonight
about biological weapons testing on flocks of sheep -- poor little dollys...

/t.

carmen said...

now we are called "biological weapons"...how strange!!!

Little Lamb said...

Kid,
So eagles will eat fish and roadkill.

Carmen,
Freya does seem nice. K9 liked her so she's got to be good.

/t.
How did it turn out? Poor sheep.

Little Lamb said...

Carmen,
Sheep are not biological weapons.

puerileuwaite said...

Is that picture "to scale"? Also, why does it have to be a mountain in the background? Are lakes less patriotic?

(At least the mountain isn't shaded purple. That would be a bit much. What's that? Gotta go. Homeland Security is at the door ... apparently they want to "discuss" this comment ... )

Little Lamb said...

Umm, no the picture is not to scale to my knowledge.

Umm, it could have been a lake. I didn't see any lake pictures so I picked the one you see.

Umm, no lakes are not less patriotic to my knowledge.

Oh what have I done?

carmen said...

LL, happily, lambs are only biological.
and i think lakes are 100%patriotic...
think of finland with its 10,000 lakes...

puerileuwaite said...

Whose side are the lakes on? Finland's or America's? I don't want a wishy-washy answer. Either the lakes are patriotic to America or they're not (in which case they are un-American and need to be drained).

/t. said...

little lamb,

how did it turn out?

  anthrax: 1
  dollys: 0

/t.

carmen said...

pueri, the drainage systems are already on...but don't take me seriously, i'm a lakist...

Little Lamb said...

Carmen,
Finland is not in the United States.

Pug,
I'm sure lakes are patriotic, though I'm not sure. We can make use of our lakes.

/t.
How did what turn out? What are you talking about
Anthrax 1?
Dolly 0?

Carmen,
STOP draining the lakes!

/t. said...

little lamb,

you asked me
how it turned out...

anthrax 1 dollys 0

(the sheep lost)

/t.

Little Lamb said...

Oh that program. You let them kill the sheep!

The Phosgene Kid said...

Like lambs to the slaughter. Kebabs anyone?

Little Lamb said...

I'm sure /t. will have some.

puerileuwaite said...

Carmen, the more I read your comments, the more I like you.

carmen said...

LL, have no fear...no immediate danger...there are 10,000, LL..

pueri, don't!!

Little Lamb said...

pug,
she belongs here, too.

Carmen,
10,000 what Carmen?

carmen said...

....10,000 lapes to go, LL,...

/t. said...

or
maybe
10,000 cryptic messages from carmen ;)

/t.

carmen said...

...directly from the crypt!!!

Dan said...

It took me a while to get around to it, but I just posted my answer to your last question here.

Little Lamb said...

Carmen,
lapes?

/t.
Perhaps

Dan,
okie dokie.

carmen said...

yes, LL , laps + lakes = lapes...
SLAKES

Little Lamb said...

Whatever.

carmen said...

SLACKS
whatever....
LL

Little Lamb said...

or slacker?

/t. said...

or whatever
