Mirrored

Is that really me or an imposter,

A pretender that looks like me?

That kind of action I don’t foster!

Is that really me or an imposter?

I dont see my name on the roster,

But a resemblance I do see!

Is that really me or an imposter,

A pretender that looks like me?

While waiting for my grandson today I caught an amusing site on video. My daughter’s porch has a mirrored medicine cabinet sitting on it waiting to be carried into the house that apparently caught the eye of a little bird.

I sat watching as the little bird saw his reflection in the mirror and kept trying to figure out who that other bird was. It was very cute to watch.

Forwards or Backwards

Go snow

Either way you say it

The meaning is the same

We dont want you around here

Snow go

A friend of mine used to say”There’s a lot of truth in jesting” and in this case it’s true. The poem may sound humorous but it’s meaning is real 😊 Snow be Gone!

“Faithful followers, there is no shadow of me and a beautiful spring it shall be,” a member of Phil’s Inner Circle read from the groundhog’s prediction scroll to the cheers and applause from the crowd.

Thousands of people gathered Saturday at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to watch a famous groundhog deliver his highly anticipated forecast.

Took this photo of my family’s pets, (grandson and grand-daughter’s cats) all sitting together seeming to be having a meeting of the minds–probably regarding whose attention they could grab to give them some food in their empty bowl! 😃
