Chickens in the Basement

I love to write and I love to laugh. When I write, I get to the point quick. My stories would fit on the back of a postcard. They usually make me chuckle. And you know what they say, "It's all about me!"

My Favorite Photo

My blogger buddy, Renee from Of Lemons and Honey, has tagged me with this meme (She also educated me on the definition of meme.) Make sure you read Renee's story about her morning dove.

Here's mine. Sorry, there is more than one photo!

Our family has a getaway house on the Pamlico River on Blounts Creek.
Several years ago, we spent New Years Eve there. It was cold and quiet. No dramas. No late night parties. Just us and the dog. On New Year's Day, we bundled up in all the clothes we could find, jumped in the boat and went for a cruise.
The water was so smooth and reflective, you sort of lost yourself in the water. It was hard to tell where real life started and reflections began.



We fantasized over some of the houses that were for sale...especially the ones with pretty river frontage.




As the sun began to set, we headed back home. This silhouette reflection was gorgeous!

But the best shot of the day came when we interrupted a blue heron's hunt for fish. As he flew off, we got this shot. Even his reflection is beautiful!

Oh, beautiful! As I scrolled down, each photo was so beautiful, I was wondering why that one wasn't your favorite and then that one. BUT when I saw your favorite -- that beautiful heron! -- I certainly understood.

Why thank you, Miz Chicken! I always thought "meme" was Louisiana for "grandma". Learn something new every day!

Anna I love the peaceful location of your vacation home - and catching the heron was great. All beautiful pics. How will I choose MY favorites for goodness sake - I've thousands here on the laptop to go through? Will have to think about this - pick a subject and find a few I love.

Love your new header!!
