Random Thoughts

There's no reason for the photos of the baby robin.
It's just that I have lacked the inspiration for taking photos the last couple of weeks
and this wee little delight was in my backyard this summer
and I hadn't shown the photos yet.






So after a most lovely weekend in Medicine Hat, Alberta with Stanley
and due to the fact that we once again did NOT win big in the lottery,
it was back to work yesterday with frigid temperatures...

I'm starting to think this winning big in the lottery is not a sure thing...

I think you may be right! Stay warm.

Awwww, that little guy is adorable! It's nice to see some spring and green when all we have is cold and....uh....snow(?). (We still don't have any)

We haven't won the lottery yet either. I hear it causes more problems than it does good....but I dunno. I'd like to find out.

LOL @ the lottery thing, because I've recently started buying tickets, not to Lotto Max (too pricey), but to an Ontario lottery. Huh. No luck for me, either.

Love the baby robin pics. Just a couple of months and we ought to see robins back for real.

BTW, the revised forecast windchill tonight will be -32C, Catherine. *Sob*!

He's adorable! I like that second photo of him stretching. :) I play the lotto as well...you never knos. :)

Susan said...

Cute little birdie! Hmmm, I think you may be right about the lottery.

Sandra said...

no reason needed to post beautiful photos of birds, he is beautiful and so are the photo's. so if you disappear from blog land, will that mean you won BIG?

That is one cute little birdie!

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Awww we didn't win either....what's wrong with those tickets.

Actually they are probably made by the same people that make the mailboxes that only deliver bills.

Hmmmm

Oh the baby robin is so cute!
Sorry you didn't win the lottery. I keep dreaming of winning big...but I have to actually buy the lottery first ;-)

I think your right about the lottery but as I tell Mrs. T not to worry because she was already lucky in love.... :)

Laurie said...

I'm glad you waited to share these precious photo's, Catherine, it brings back warm memories which we can really use right now!

Dearest Catherine,
That baby Robin is lucky that Banjo could not interfere with his stretch and wing flexing exercise!
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Sylvia said...

Oh, what a cute little one, Catherine !
About the lottery, my husband sometimes says 'I'm sure we're going to win big', so far it has not happened :-)
Hugs,
Sylvia

Sabi Sunshine said...

My thinking is instead of buying lottery , save that money ...Hopefully one day you will be a millionaire for sure LOL

Cute pictures :)

You don't need a reason.. it is nice, on this very very very cold day, to be reminded that summer will come again.

GreatGranny said...

Nothing is so sweet as a baby robin, especially at feeding time when Mom brings the bugs and worms.

Kerri said...

Oh I LOVE that baby :)

Ann said...

I haven't felt much like using my camera lately either but when all you've got around you is snow it kind of takes the thrill away :) Cute robin.

Betsy Adams said...

My hubby keeps asking me why I don't win the lottery.. I asked him: "Well, do I have to play to win???" ha ha

Cute little Robin.. Bet they have gone south now for the winter...
Hugs,
Betsy

Oh, I love your little bird! My husband is the lottery ticket buyer in our family. He gives them to me and I check them, making me the Official Bearer of Bad News. *smile*

Nancy said...

What a precious Robin...so sweet and such good pictures to show him off...

BeadedTail said...

The robin seemed to be showing you some fancy moves! So the weekend in Medicine Hat was the special plans with Stanley? Or maybe it was winning the lottery? :) Maybe next time!

Linda R said...

What a cute robin. Just look at those legs. Wishing you a happy week.

Love that little robin -- cuteness.

At least you buy a ticket. We don't even do that.

Madge Bloom said...

So you think you're not going to win huh? Well, I don't either, I feel that way enough that I don't bother to buy tickets... love the birdie!

Barbara Shallue said...

This little one is precious! I'm so glad you shared it with us. Let's stay positive about the lottery, okay? I'm beginning to think it's my only hope!!
