Thanks, everyone, for your patience!  A server in New York perished hard and fast on Monday and my site was eaten.  Temporarily, thank goodness.
Now, on to the caption contest~  All the illicit references gave me the giggles!

Dude!  It’s so….Dude!
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a bird……
I’m a coyote in sheepskin clothing
Strawhairy Fields Forever
Laze & Gaze…….
Grin and stare and shed that crazy hair
Elf leg castles in the air…..
I have fallen and I can shed off.
Crazy daze-y
Spring Roll
“The SKY, man… have you ever really looked at it?”
Tricks of hunting the Slowly Descending Spider
“Wow Daisy, you really look different from this angle..”

• • • blah blah blah blah contest blah!
blah blah comment blah blah!
prize is anything but blah ~
this week’s winner will receive one of my new feather prints
I’m pretty much in love with them ~ see ‘em HERE!
then come back and blah!

    And what my heart has heard, well it takes my breath away.
