"buck . . buck"

Sometimes it is the tiny details that are the most endearing.

Things that go "buck buck"

. . .wind chimes with chickens chiming against little metal rods. . .

eagles. . . that soar above us. . . and dance in the sky. . . grasping at one anothers claws. . .

and diving together. . .

. . .the obvious. . .chickens in the barn

.. . .crows. . .lined up on telephone wires dodging cars risking their necks for a bit of road kill . . .

. .. .a dried leaf on the grass. . .

looking as if it is about to take flight. . .

. ..and yesterday. . .

We couldn't see the "buck. . buck". . .but the lil' farm hand was insistent .. . pointing to the ceiling . ..a pesky house fly had found its way into the bungalow.

Little details . . a moment to listen . . .and a lifetime to remember.

All for now. . .with love,

  1. It's amazing that as we get older, we tend to overlook the small details. What else are we missing out on?

  7. Isn't it wonderful?......the way that our grandchildren help us to see the everyday, the minutia, so clearly. I love to read about others' enjoyment of these precious moments - thanks Lovella!

  8. So--everything that flies or has wings is in the genus classified as 'buck buck'. Glad I know now. I'll pass on the information to The New Boy.

  10. Your post was relaxing and a good reminder to just take time...time to see things around us, especially through our grandchildren's eyes. I loved the "buck...buck".By the way, you do not look like you turned "50".

  11. 'Buck, buck'...now that brings back memories. Too cute! And I'm glad you posted the pic's of the gorgeous eagles...rather than the 'buck, buck'. So majestic!

  14. Sounds like you and I both had our little grandsons over yesterday. Mine was amused by all the birds in our yard and the field behind us and I was hearing "caw caw...bird....caw caw bird". They are smart little fellows aren't they. No eagles in our sight, but we have a woodpecker hanging around these days. Kathy
