    Sweet pick!! and sweet photo too!

    My Dad told me a story of when he was a boy. They had a pet fox. It was just like a dog. When they’d go to milk the cow they’d squirt milk right out of the cow at the fox and he’d just sit there and drink it!! This was way back in the 1940′s, couldn’t get by with that these days.

    Aawwww, what a cute picture. And a pretty pick that describes your story perfectly! On the farm, we had a dog that would sit by the cow for squirts of milk too! :-)

    Sorry ladies, but I had to add my 2 cents worth in here. When I lived on the farm as a child, we also had a pet fox but a weasel got him. When my dad milked the cows we had a line up of kids for the milk as well as cats. I had 3 sisters. I sure miss the farm.

    Welcome back Plucky. Glad you’re pickin again. This one goes into my favs. I have white lilacs and purple lilacs in my front yard and they just started blooming about a week ago.

    Great pick and pics, Plucky! I really miss lilacs. I had never seen, or SMELLED, them until I lived that time in Indiana. They don’t do well here in central Texas.

    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    Wow! Thank you all soo much! It was fun to get on and see all your comments!! Foxes are now on their own! I am in Colorado, can see Pikes Peak from my deck! I leave on Sunday for a weeklong church work camp with my daughter, so I will be off again (insert sad face here!), but I will be back on and try to catch up! The Garden will be up by then! Yippee!

    Wow you live in Colorado, it’s another beautiful state in the U.S…. by the way, forgot to say earlier I also love the name of your Pick, made me almost say “WHERE… eeekk, gotta run and hide…” :)

    It has been unusually overcast for the sunniest state of Colorado, but there is a little blue sky today! We are actually going to Denver with hammers and paintbrushes to work on some houses and sleep on the floor of a high school! I have never done anything like this before, so it should be interesting!

    Hey, cool, someone from my neck of the woods (sort of)! Lucky you to see the mountains every day! I know you’ll be working hard the coming week, but enjoying yourself too – such satisfaction in helping others! I’m sure your daughter will enjoy her “mom” time too!

    So Dizzy Chick, you’re here in Colorado aren’t you?

    J Yee smart chick says:

    how funny that you have been having overcast weather in Colorado – we’ve been having a heat wave here in Seattle – about a couple of weeks of sunshine – auughh… and high temps in the eighties… so maybe we got your sunshine and ya got our overcast… trying not to send rain anyone else’s way :) … sounds like a fun trip, do let us know how it goes…

    Been to the Butterfly Pavillion many times! We are right off the interstate in Colorado Springs if you are ever passing by!! I’ll let you know when we are headed to Omaha and maybe you will be visiting your inlaws at the same time!

    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    I wondered if it was Creighton! My husband’s new MD went to school there, & that’s why he chose that dr! Also, my OB/gyn went there! They make good dr’s there! And I’m sure Physical Therapists too!

    Ha! I’m hopeless! When is your daughter moving? We’re planning to go up there again in late July. If you’ve never been there, they have an awesome zoo – the Henry Doorly Zoo. It is quite nice, comparable to Denver’s zoo.

    Hey Becky – we might be driving right past you in late July! My husband has to deliver a car to somewhere in CO. he thinks near Aspen. I’m hoping to go with them if I can stand the long drive.

    This is a really great pick. The fox is adorable. We get deer right up to the back door.

    Becky, glad to know where you live, too. Colorado sounds beautiful! Hope you have fun while you’re away with your daughter! How did soccer go?

  52. No Photo
    RubberT aka Plucky Chick says:

    Soccer went great, but Texas is HOT compared to Colorado! Our girls do great when teams come here with the altitude advantage, but we wilt in the heat! Won 2, tied one.

    Jeanne, Aspen is several hours north of where I live. What direction will you be coming from?
