Green Owl Garage

This owl was found on the side of a garage. I immediately thought of  Timothy Price from Off Center Not Even.

I know his owls are different, but Tim is the only one I know with owls living on his property.

Someone hewed down the dead tree where the owls made their home.

Tim made another nest, in the same area, with many attributes of the old nest.

He went toa lot of effort. Will the owls find the new nest?

I sure hope so! Thank you, Tim!

Dear John II

Good Afternoon, Agent 00 toon!

We have a situation in the alleys. Bugs has been sent in undercover.

He’s discovered a lot of dissent amongst the cartoon world. Seems you’ve been playing faves, with Looney Tunes. Other cartoon franchises have become agitated.

Rover Dangerfield feels he has no respect. Perhaps he should have a chat with Wile E. Coyote? He gets no respect, and he’s a Looney Tune!

The other cartoons feel like they’re being driven off a cliff. Again, they should speak with Wile E. Being driven off a cliff is all in a days work.

Still, protest and defiance grows. Darkwing Duck is demanding “more paint” to paint more Disney Characters!

Me, I’m hiding out in a crazy black and white mural.

I’m not pink, so no one will spot me, and I’ve got a great vantage point.

Oh No! Boris Badenov is about to throw a fusion bomb!!!  All  animals  and  humans  will be fused with cartoons. No one will be spared if they enter the alley!

  Anyone with  half  a brain  is  fleeing.

I repeat; half a brain!!!!

IT’S TOO LATE!

Poor guys never stood a chance!  Agent 00 toon, I trust you’ll take care of this situation?!

Your mission is to restore order to the lanes & alleys!

Stone Roses

I found stone roses. I thought of  Holly – House of Heart

They are on the same wall where I found “A Long Stemmed Rose for Holly.

Click on me to see the post

The rose must have spilled seeds.

The seeds of love scattered,

and have grown on,

into a Stone Rose garden.

Like Holly’s poems, it’s lush and inviting.

It’s a beautiful happening!

The roses grow right out of the cement curb.

I wonder what will be here next time I pass by?

Guns Guns Guns – “Eagle all Gone & No More Caribou”

When I found this eagle I thought:

AH, a simple post… I’ll dedicate it to my nature pal Tim

….and maybe my pal Cindy who said she saw more Bald eagles in Canada than the USA.

I sure hope this is an eagle!

In my world, I see more nature in alleys, than anywhere else.

“God Speed Mother Nature, I never really wanted to say goodbye”

A song of warning from 50 years ago.

I’m in tears.

Another Pretty Face

Starting with the eyes would be more logical, but I love these lips.

Found her in an alley in Kensington Market.

Was all giddy and happy when I did.

Amazing how a pretty piece of wall art can make my day.

Fortunately, the tagger didn’t annihilate the beauty.
