When we were kids the seats in the cars were bench seats- you could sit four skinny people comfortably across the front seat. (Bucket seats are such a kill-joy). Lovey-dovey couples would sit close together – usually the fella driving and the girl jammed as close as she could get, thigh to thigh, knee to knee. We were small children then, often travelling in the car with Dad and when driving behind such a couple, their profiles joined into one, my Dad would say “Look a Two-headed Monster”. And we would all laugh. When you are five every Dad’s joke seems new and hilarious. Even if you have heard it umpteen times before.
This photo has nothing at all to do with lovely dovey couples but it certainly is a two headed monster. I was trying to get a shot of Geraldine with her lizard feet in focus and her body moving about and got this instead. Geraldine the Jekyll can no longer hide her Hyde.
Aunty Anna has decided that the new hay is so good ..
… she just had to bury her head in that new hay smell and wriggle about a bit.
I forgot to lock the chickens up the other night and they were waiting for me yesterday morning.
It has been wet for so long that many of the fence posts are green now.
I hope you have a lovely day.
Sunny days will come
Love the pic of Geraldine. Could most probably not have achieved that if you were trying.
That is a look of cow bliss.
Your usual good photos
These candid farm images are wonderful. I bet the chooks enjoyed their evening roosting under the stars.
Ha ha – that’s what comes from growing up with turkeys 🙂
Those chickens look very healthy 😀
I love the last shot, the row of chooks on the fence. They’re such wonderfully rich colours, and the rooster has a magnificent comb and yellow stockings. The photo of Geraldine really gives an idea of how fast she must have cocked her head at you.
I hope the weather dries soon. It has been a very wet and very green summer up here as well – and my-oh-my, the cloud formations.
Have the wonderful chefs cooked up anything with eggplant yet? I’m looking for a yummy, preferably easy, recipe! 🙂
Yes, the eggplant bechemal sauce. Served with a beef turkish stew.. c
Loved all the pictures you’ve posted here.. two headed chicken and the cow rooting in the hay, I’m still laughing over here.. Have a most wonderful weekend.. Take care, Laura 🙂
You take care too Laura! c
Snorts with piggy laughter. See, the devil side was coming out in Geraldine. Mom says usually I’m sweet Bacon but my deviled ham side comes out at times. Shivers – let’s not talk about that. Happy Friday my sweet friend! XOXO – Bacon
Devilled Ham! Snorts. c
Hey TonTon! Love all of the photos and I remember those bench seats and no seat belts…yes I do 🙂
Oh yes – no seat belts either – certainly a different time..
I love your last photo. It makes me a little homesick. I miss the farm in Germany.
Lovely photos miss c! My God mother had an old car like that and one year we crammed my mum, my God mother, her mum, plus 4 of us kids in it and drove to Cornwall one yea. It probably took 8 or 9 hours. But it was fun, and a happy memory 😀
All those women – I bet that road trip was full of hilarity.. c
I was a child, but I remember lots of fun and laughter. And my poor little brother was the only male amongst all those women!
The pictures are beautiful, I like how colorful the roosters are. I bet everything going on in the kitchen is so wonderful with the chef’s there. I tried the Apple pancake recipe but I used peaches instead it was so yummy!
That is wonderful! Peaches would be perfect.. c
Does anyone else spy that super blue sky???????? I remember those car seats. Miss them.
No that is a super blue black rain cloud – it really does look blue in the image though – it makes for beautiful light.
That Nature is tricky tricky.
Love the photos today. Especially Aunty Anna rolling in the hay! I laughed.
You have Irish fences! Made out of whatever is at hand and covered in greenery:) I do like Geraldine and Hyde. How did Camera House know?
Camera house knows everything! c
That photo of the cooks looks like “Band Practice II”. (And now I don’t feel so bad that I use spaghetti in the long narrow box–use whole wheat spaghetti, actually.) So happy to see TonTon! And Auntie Anna is bee-you-tee-ful!!
She is a saucy looking wench – ! c
You made me laugh ’cause I kind’of grew up in the ‘neck’ and ‘pet’ [ooh! naughty!!] era of ‘nice’ girls and those ‘loose’ and not marriage material!! Having a ‘partner’ situation simply did not exist 🙂 !! Sex on the second or third date supposedly did not either: you had to retain your respect!!!! But those bench seats sure did !!!! Not having a car one did love the offers to drive one home from all the parties but got very adept at having one’s house keys already in hand when the car engine got switched off – door open, profuse thanks and a smile . . . . at my age just recently, having remet my first university boyfriend in Med School: he remembered I would not even part with a kiss . . . now very close ’tis wonderful to laugh . . .. . . oh yes, THAT era must have had a record number of hugely ‘premature’ babies to the newly married who weighed about 8-9 lbs . . .
It looks like Geraldine is having an oit of body
Sorry pressed send by accident!! Was going to say: It looks like Geraldine is having an out of body experience! 🙂
Ha ha I bet they enjoyed not being locked up. Ours are 24/7 but no predators thankfully …
New car smell has nothing on new hay smell. I would roll around in it, too.
The chickens make a lovely welcoming committee! Aunty Anna does seem to be enjoying the new hay smell. Silly Geraldine!
