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...
