I haven't been able to upload photos with Blogger so am trying with Picassa.

A doe gave birth to twins last summer. She kept them pretty well hid until the cold, hungry winter months. Now she brings them to my front yard to nibble the grass and what ever they can find to fill their hungry tummies.
I know I shouldn't be feeding the deer, but if you take a good look at this little fawn and see how skinny she is, and see the trusting, pleading look in her big brown eyes, well what would you do? She was looking in the window at me.

An apple a day won't keep the hunger away but maybe it helps a little bit. I'm pretty sure this one is a little buck. He is much more adventurous than the other. The fawns and their mother don't take food from my hand and I'm glad. It isn't a good idea for them to be too comfortable with humans. Not everyone would feed them.

This little guy is sticking his tongue out at me and I'm sure he is thinking, "When I grow up and get antlers I will come and destroy whats left of your shrubbery." But for now he is hungry and I have a mother's heart.
My brother in Law does some beautiful photography. He and my sister spend time in Eastern Washington which is where i believe this photo was taken. I love old houses and barns. My imagination goes wild thinking about the family who once lived here, the children playing in the fields and trees and mama cooking over a hot wood cook stove while Dad is out in the fields. Yes I do love pictures like this.

I hope I can get blogger to upload my pictures soon. I pray all is well with you and yours.

UPDATE ON JOHN: His second opinion doctor told him he definitely has bone cancer and gave him two years. However he didn't do a biopsy so I don't know how they can be sure.

I was going to suggest uploading your pictures through Picassa or Photo Bucket and then just pasting the code in Blogger...glad you thought of it:-) Oh my goodness, look at those eyes looking at you through the window and yes, it is pretty thin so I'm glad you're feeding them. I wouldn't be able to resist either.

I'm like you when it comes to old abandoned homes, I always wonder who lived there, how many children they had, what they did, etc. That is a great picture your BIL took!

There's a snowstorm raging outside right now so I'm NOT impressed with Mother Nature! lol Hope you're enjoying a lovely day. xoxo

Dear Bev ~~ Sorry blogger won't oblige with your pics. And hope it comes good soon. I hope and pray that the tests or procedures that you have to have all go well. Talk about golden years - unless one is lucky enough to be healthy and fit.
Glad you liked the jokes, especially the Cornflakes one. I am sorry your mother had alzheimers
Take care dear friend, and I hope I can find some more good jokes for next time. Love, Merle.

How precious. That little fawn just tugs on my heart. I am glad you are feeding it. What a special thing to have---deer in your yard. God bless you!

I always use Picasa to upload my photos. It works great.
Who could possibly resist those sweet faces. I do hope they spare your gardens and shrubs come summer :)
Old houses and barns sure do stir the imagination and they make beautiful photos.
Ross is coming along slowly, gaining a little strength each day and getting some good rest. We truly appreciate your prayers and well wishes, dear Bev.
I'll be praying for John. He sure has been through a lot but he's made of strong stuff, PTL! My heart goes out to him with this latest diagnosis. What a blow.
