STILL LIFE WITH BIRDS


Right before I left to help the Lad adjust his, huh, house with the move and such, I had captured these snaps of the birds out the kitchen window. I had just laid the new seed on the sill and already it was like The Birds within seconds.......


One of my favorite to watch is the Tufted Titmouse.....

I thought these next two shots were sweet of these two separate dove couples.....

I RUN THE RUNWAY


And now, how about a midweek musical interlude with the fabulous Miss Fame and the stunning Violet Chachki, "I Run the Runway" It's a catchy little ditty, and these two know how to work the runway. And then there's that kiss.........

PRESIDENT'S DAY WEEKEND IN HARRISBURG



Happy President's Day!!!!
I hope everyone is having a good weekend, and must apologize for being gone so much.  I don't know where winter and my cocooning went...I think, right out the window. Then the weather was unbelievably warm ....in the high 60"s and is to continue all this week. Today, I'm off for the holiday and IT was much needed after my Roanoke moving adventure with the Lad. The lifting wasn't bad, but it gets hard to get anything done I reckon if you can't keep your eyes off his lovely backside!!! Upon getting back, I had work for two days, then it was off to visit my very good friends, the Capital Street Duo for the Dame's birthday. I always enjoy going to visit them. Not only are they always fun and entertaining, but the Dame has one hell of a interesting and lovely home. As a regular reader here, I'm sure you have seen the snaps I have taken there before. A good time was had by all.  The Dame had invited 21 people for dinner at one of my favorite Harrisburg places, Rubicon.
Rubicon is a playfully French inspired, bar-centric restaurant, offering honest epicurean fare. Their meals are prepared with fresh, locally grown produce, and their cock-a-tails are all very tasty and original. The atmosphere is very fun, elegant, with featured art work and house music being played. Definitely a good spot for a birthday celebration. I always said the Dame had good taste.


And I love a place that had my gin and tonic waiting for me.....
After dinner it was off to the 704 Lounge for a 20 a couple cock-a-tails, where the birthday celebrations continued. It was so warm out, even at 11pm, we had drinks on the rooftop! But the dear Dame was ready to retire around 12:30. Hey, it's hard to keep up with the Mistress's gin bath swims!!! And here are a few glimpses of the beauty and quirky at the Capital Street Duo's.....
Is it a wonder I feel like I'm at Downton Abbey?

These peacocks are very old antiquities and are stuffed with arsenic!!! Don't cross the Dame!

You mean you don't have a compote filled with glass light bulbs?

Beautiful stain glass in the bathroom...with big balls in the window box.
A new edition to the bath....a shadow box of vintage medicine bottles and tonics. Anything and everything that ails you.
Their house dog Philly, named after the Philadelphia Phillies. He is a sweet dog.
These were waiting for me in my boudoir when I arrived.

I couldn't help but wonder if Mr. DeVice has been a guest here too????
A cute pull toy from the early 1920's.
Me and my gams in a twin bed in my boudoir there! Me in a twin!!!! Thanks goodness I didn't have company!!! I also told the Dame she needs to replace my house coat there on the door hanging with a bigger one. It looks ridiculous when I get up in the night to get a drink, and there I am with a half coat on with my bare ass and jewels on display.

BIRTHDAY DAME


Here's to one of my favorite Brit actresses!!!!!

"When I approach the pearly gates, I'd like to hear a champagne cork popping, an orchestra tuning up, and the sound of my mother laughing."

"[about her damehood] I'm very surprised indeed, but very pleased that the honor pertains to theatre."

"I just want to do good work with good people in good places. And as for retirement, I can hardly spell the word. I'm driven, really. The demons won't lie down."

"People have always pitied spinsters. We have been derided, as if we had missed out on life. Well, we need not miss out on anything today!"

"We were betrayed by the BBC. We finished series four of Hetty Wainthropp, we were told there was going to be series five. But no word ever came - how rude! The BBC is run by 10-year-old children."


Happy Birthday and many happy returns!

Dame Patricia Routledge-
born  February 17 1929
