Chicks and Ducks and Geese Better Scurry!

Sunday afternoon we drove the Civic with the fringe on top out to BSTuna's ranch and wild game preserve to celebrate BBQ'd meat products, Macaroni Salad and Blueberry Pie.

The guest list for this culinary gathering included ten family members of the human variety plus:

One dog

Four adult bunnies

Six baby bunnies

One teensy new barn kitten

Three dozen or so newly hatched hen and quail chicks

One Green-Tailed Moth

One found turtle of dubious heritage

Sixty gabillion really, REALLY, REALLY hungry mosquitoes

Five Heavy Metal Frogs

Little NephewTuna kept himself very busy with the other males of the herd doing manly type activities which were mostly centered around tractors, engines, grills, dinosaurs, and the battle of the "strongest head".

I kept myself busy sitting in the shade and plucking bunnies until they were nearly nekkid. With her bare butt and her fluffy middle, Muna ended up sporting a jaunty reversed-poodle look, just perfect for summer.

TinyTuna, meanwhile, was in full-on Cecil B. De Milne mode.... be continued...

Who knew that if you clicked the trash can, it would delete your comment. Anyway, my comment was "I love me some Heavy Metal Frogs!"
