Friday Flames...

This is my DAD... sittin on a little log. He is in the MIDDLE of my garden... BURNING the Bird Brush Pile. This is ME..(Frankie Furter) enjoying a DELICIOUS Fresh beef bone. I don't help with the annual Burning of the Bird Brush Pile... beclaws... UNLIKE Jazzi.. I Value My Furs tooo much to get NEAR fire. Not even fur a Taco!!! See the three bird feeders... The birds that feed from them don't have any close shelter or place to perch... so every FALL mom and dad and I build a Brush Pile fur them... OK>>> OKAY>>> I admit it... I LOVE the brushpile too. I climb on and in and even UNDER it beclaws there are always neat thingys to sniff and it is a super place fur me to HIDE some of my impawtant thingys. Sooooo now that it is spring... mom quits filling these feeders and only fills the other 4 that I have. That way the birds get used to being AWAY.. so they won't singe their feathers when the brushpile goes up in flames.
The extra bonus of the brushpile burning is that... the little bits of burned up sticks and stuff gets scattered all over the garden... beclaws that stuff is good fur the ground. Wyatt will be sooooo very much proud of me fur knowing that.
Hope you have a grrrrreat day!!!

You are a most knowledgeable young man Frankie. I have to thank you and your Mom for introducing us to Claras Collars and the lovely Miss Lisa, we waited up till 1 am to call her as we were not sure about the time difference. We had a long chat which was lovely and she said how handsome you were and how lovely your Moms is ( which is all true as you know ) and she is going to do Ronnii harness and send it out today so thank you thank you thank you, she will look so pretty in her new walkies set thanks to you and your Moms.

Your humans are so good to those birds, Frankie. We hope the birds appreciate them as much as we do. But we have to say there is something wrong with this picture - you get a nice beefy bone and Dad has to sit on a stump??? BOLOLOL

Stella said...

Your Dad looks like he is deep in thought, maybe thinking of some new smart things he can teach you. I am glad you stay away from fires, because I do too! Firecrackers too!!!!

Looks like you guys were having a good day!

Does this mean you're going to start planting your garden soon, Frankie? It will be a few weeks yet before it's safe to plant ours, but I'm hoping that we'll have good stuff in it. I'd really like to grow a Milkbone bush like that one you had last year!


Sagira said... sure are smart about the birds and fire Frankie. :)

road-dog-tales said...

Frankie - You're right, Wyatt would be super proud of you! And we're pretty darned impressed, too. We're especially impressed that you're smart enough to chew on that delish bone far away from the fire!

PeeS - Mom went crazy to find out RR was just minutes from your house! She has that Brubaker movie, too!

The Dad did some burning here. You will be able to read about it Mancat Monday. I enjoyed watching the flames from a safe distance. ~Fenris

Mack said...

That is soooo cool your peeps are helping the little birdies!

Hi Frankie,
We use to have 3 bird feeders going year around but then 07 hit and Toms business dried up. Business is a LITTLE better now but we are down to one only bird feeder and we don't feed them the real good stuff so we don't have as many exotic birds as we use to but you have to do what you have to do!!
We love our home grown vegetables here!!
