Happy Pictures

It has been another Cold night!!! So I thought I would put some happy pictures on to help cheer you all up. This cold is getting OLD!!! I want to be back in Florida where I live. I don't like the COLD!!
Here is my Sweet Bambi !! This is the sweetest dog you will ever meet. She spends her life trying to please her family. It makes her happy to do something right. You tell her she is a good girl and she is so happy. When she does something wrong, she gets so sad and she will try to make up with you and she is so cute doing that, that you can't help but laugh and then she just wags her tail all over her body. She is a very special girl.
The picture is a young me and the dog love of my life, Bruce. Bambi is a very close second tho.
Bruce was another pleaser. He just wanted to please!!!! And boy did he !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He went to work with me every day. .When he needed to be sweet, he was and when he needed to be protective he was!!! I loved that dog so much.

Here is one of the hummers that come to visit each spring. I never get many like I have seen in others pictures. Only a few. And I have tried to feed over winter but that has never worked.
I am happy with the hummingbirds that I get. I really don't need any more.

We are suppose to get 3 more very cold nights and then a warming trend.. I surely hope THEY are right. This cold needs to leave Florida.
See you all tomorrow.
Stay warm, Bambi, Happy and Fern


  1. Fern, I think you are lucky to get a few hummers. My Aunt and Uncle live in mid-Florida and have tried and tried to get them, but no luck. On the other hand, my Mother, here in SW Virgina has to fill her feeder every other day from April to October.

    Have a great day - we're hoping for some warmer weather soon. All of the Scotties need grooming so bad - they look like ragamuffins.

    Hugs to all,

  2. cute pictures. We have alot of cold too and spring cant come soon enough. Like rocky creek scotties, JAzzi is getting so uh poofy, she needs a haircut bad but it is way to cold right now. See ya later

  3. Hi Fern, Great post. Those are such cute pictures. I love reading your blog. I don't always comment but I am still reading everyday. Bruce was a gorgeous dog. Bambi sure looks like a happy dog. Thank you for sharing a bit of your life with us. Have a great weekend and try to keep warm! ~Hugs, Karen

  4. Hi Fern great pictures today and the hummer.
    I hope you, Tom and the babies are staying warm. Way too cold in FL.

  5. My Auntie Di in Phoenix loves to watch her hummers too!

    Tank woo fur sharing all of today's pikhs!


  6. I just love the photo of the Hummingbird, unusual sight for an Aussie.

  7. I love my hummers too! The most I've ever counted were 8 at one time...I can watch then for hours...
    I think your dogs have always been so sweet because they take after YOU!!!

  8. The birds are beautiful. We get them in the summertime,but I never get a picture of them.
    We are use to the cold. It is 14 degrees right now!

  9. Hi Nice Quilt Lady,

    I am so busy making right now, but I did want to visit and was happy to see beautiful Bambi all curled up. Hmmm, I wonder if she will be entering Mango Minster? She seems like a Hard Working gal. Hint hint.


  10. We are under a cold spell too! I like the snow though - so we have been out and walking quite a bit. Hope it warms up for you soon - although Bambi has the right idea.

    Lovely photo of Bruce - like your funky outfit too!!

    Hi Fern yes Madi still enjoys her big gray mouse; however, Madi is an equal opportunity kind of gal in all she does. She picks a toy, sleeping spot etc for a week rotating around the house. She actually goes to her toy basket to select.

  12. Bambi looks like the sweetest doggie ever. But with a lovely name like that, how could she be anything else but!
    We all love each and every pet we have but sometines there is one that is very special to us. Not that we love them more, but we are closer to them. We certainly understand your love for Bruce. And what a handsome boy!

    We have hummers, especially in the summer.
    Someone told us they enjoy a gentle mist. We bought a mister (used for childs play), attached it to our hose and put on for the hummers when they come out for their evening feeding period. They love it! But then, we live in a very dry climate.

  13. Lovey sweet woofies.. You get Humming birds.. How simply gorgeous.. I would love to get them to visit me.. Hope yours and our cold goes realy soon. HUgs GJ xx

  14. We hope you are staying warm inside of your home. All of you. It is so unusual for Florida. Our gramma is tired of it. And we understand.
