a bird a fish and the dog

I have received so much from my blogging friends and felt the need to catch up with the activities whirling around this space...
This photo is a 6 in 6 meme that I was tagged on by my friend Gayle
Planet M Filestaken in 2004
the rules are to go to the 6 photo folder and post the 6th photo there. Mine is a big angel fish long since gone. Mr ELK has a large aquarium as a hobby so I imagine this might have been taken by him.

Next I am happy to PAY IT FORWARD here as my name was chosen by Dlyn whose beautiful photo will be front and center in my little home, many thanks to you for your generosity.
You may recall the bird swap I participated in and now one little bird can be yours. The only catch is if you are picked, it is your turn to "pay it forward" as well on your blog...can be a gift card, photograph, crafty item, chocolate...or not, just play along . It came to me
that this little miss should be a magnet

...so all you "magnetic" bloggers comment on this post by Wednesday 9:00 pm and I will have Sam draw a winner..he is waiting!thoughtful sam

I usually do not write this much in a post, but could not close with out a "shout out" to the amazing VSM ...who said such sweet things about my blog and gave me a lovely award.

Another chance to receive one of your sweet birds? Count me in.

Sam, you are one handsome dude. And I'm not just saying that because I want you to pick my name. :-)

This is a wonderful idea. And I have something special to give away!
(and to compete, I guess I've gotta get Sam's attention. So Sam, I smell like a SWEET Lily-dog, and I have lots of greenies!And tail wags. And play bows.)

Elk-I hope your daughter had a lovely birthday!

Elizabeth said...

Sam .. I have a house full of yummy dog treats and a large dog just waiting to show you a good time on the trails! :)

Beautiful photo. I think I'll do this meme today - curious what photo will come up. :)

Note to Sam: Sam, I have really big jar of nice, creamy peanut butter and a Kong! Just think of the hours of fun you could have licking the peanut butter out. And did I mention it is a really big jar? Sam, you are adorable!!

Jane said...

Hope I'm not too late for Sam to pick me! I really want to see that happy little bird on my refrigerator!
And I have just the "thing" to pay it forward!
