A rooster party!

It's that time again! 
Whoo Hooooooo! 
Thanks Barb at Bella Vista 
for having us all back again, 
tacky roosters (ahem!) and all!

We interrupt this post for 
an important announcement! 
Karen wouldn't let us host 
this post because
Harley kept pulling out feathers. 
And I don't think that's very fair. 
Because I didn't do anything!
Except that we all know it was 
Jorja that pulled them out and 
she's just blaming me ~ 
just like she always does.

Continuing right along . . . 
Upstairs in my computer area
are some book-ends. 
On one end is ~
the ladies . . . 
and at the other end,
is the tramp! 
Down in the kitchen . . .
My cute "little" rooster.

And my pretty white Rooster.
Way up high over the fridge
is a square planter~
with Roosters painted on 
all four sides.
But it is almost impossible to reach... 
And finally, still standing guard
at the back door, watching and awaiting 
every family member's arrival home
after a long day (or night - AHEM!)
is our resident tattletale,
 the most loyal of servants, 
"the Mister" of Roosters.

Why does he always have that startled
expression on his face? 

(pssst! I didn't do it!)
Go ahead! Which one of us 
do you think really did it?

Thank again Barb! Sorry the pups were misbehaving today. You just never know with them . . .

Those TWO ADORABLE pups couldn't have done anything wrong. I can tell they are sweeties!!!
Love all the roosters. I only have two, one of mine is a large weather vane I move all around my house.
Thanks for sharing

Barbara said...

A Hint of Home said...

You some really cute roosters, Karen. Love the big guy at the end.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

I love all your rooster's Karen!
And especially that white one, he is a handsome fella! And I loved your little comment about late nights,(ahem) wonder who that would be? hehe. I know all about late nights with 20 year olds. Katie has to behave herself right now. She is even getting up early because her bladder won't let her sleep in. Good practice for the months ahead.
Hugs Girlfriend,
Are you still whooping it up with Ceekay and Marty?

Karen, your roosters are fine, but your doggies are FINER. They are crackin' me up with their little argument/innocence routine!

Patty in Oz said...

Hey Sweet Karen!

Love all the roosters roosting at your lovely place. Isn't it great seeing all the roosters in blogland?

Your pups...adorable. They look like part of the photo crew...asking "what do you want me to do now?" ha, ha.

I did go feed the rooster(s) down the road last night. Looking closer...they are all roosters & wild. They were so happy to see me.

Have a fantastic Friday!

Lisa said...

You stop being mean to those sweetie-pie fur babies! With sweet faces like that I know good-n-well they NEVER do ANYTHING wrong.:)
PS Love all your poultry.:)

Vicci @theplaidbasket said...

Oh Karen...what adorable babies you have! I'd day "Mister", my favorite, has the startled look on his face cuz he and only he sees everything that Harley and Jorja do that you don't see therefore they get away with it! You know, the middle child "look". Thanks for the fun post. Vicci

Your doggies are adorable! They look super soft and cuddly! Oh, the roosters are cool, too, but you can't cuddle with them!

Very cute Karen, I love your roos. I have to admit this is the first pair of rooster bookends that I have seen. Now I want a pair for myself. I need to go on a hunt, Char
