Afternoon at the dove bar

Danny Dove:  Hey, look here!  That lady has finally filled this thing up with water!  Finally!  I've been so thirsty.  Come on, babe, cozy up here at the bar and let's have a drink!

Dory Dove:  Oh, oh, oh, oh .... I don't know .... that cat may be around ... oh oh oh

Danny Dove:  Oh, quit being a scardy cat ... hahahah ... get it *scardy cat*!  I'm so funny sometimes! 

Dory Dove:  Will you be serious!  Our lives are at risk here!

Danny Dove:  Ok Ok ... I checked it all out.  There's no cat!

Dory Dove:  Well how 'bout that horse barn cat ... she sneaks around here sometimesJust the other day I saw some finch feathers all scattered about under that tree over there ..... I had nightmares all night!

Danny Dove:  Well, did you SEE all those finches awhile back.  I say one less finch means more food for us.  Ok ... just so you feel safe.  I'll go first.  Ok?  You keep a lookout.  But I'm tellin' ya' there's no CAT!

Dory Dove:  Well, you don't have to yell at me!

Danny Dove:  Ok Ok .. I'm sorry for yellin'

Dory Dove:  Thank you ... that's a much better tone ...

Danny Dove:  Hey, I know how to take your mind off that cat.  Tell me some of those jokes you heard the other day from your pigeon friend over at the park.

Dory Dove:  Well .... okay ... well, let's see now.  Oh, I've got one.  What do you get if you cross a parrot with a woodpecker?  Do you know, do you know????  You get a bird that talks in morse code!

Dory Dove:  OH, I've got another one .... "What do you call a woodpecker with no beak?  A headbanger!  Hahahahahah!!!!    Hey!  Hey!  Hey!!  Are you done yet ... geez ... save me some!

Dory Dove:  It's about time.  Oh, oh, oh, this water is so fresh.  Are you watching for that cat now?

Danny Dove:  I'm watchin', I'm watchin'!

Danny Dove:   I gotta joke you're gonna like.   Here goes ....  "Little Tim was in the garden filling in a hole when his neighbor peered over the fence. Interested in what the cheeky-faced youngster was up to, he politely asked, "Whatcha doing, Tim?" "My goldfish died," replied the boy tearfully, without looking up. "And I've just buried him." The neighbor was concerned. "That's an awfully big hole for a goldfish, isn't it?" Tim patted down the last heap of earth then replied, "That's because he's inside your cat."

Dory Dove:  Hahahaha ... now that kind of joke I LIKE ...  Darn cats.  They give me heartburn.  Let's get out of here!

PS.  As the lady that fills your water dish, I certainly do not support any humor at the expense of kitty cats.  So please, no more kitty jokes!

And dear friends, I hope these sassy love doves have not offended you either!  
Happy Monday,

Offended? Nope, I'm happy as a lark!

LOL ~ wouldn't it be wonderful to know what animals are thinking or talking about. I would imagine the birds would indeed be looking out for the kitties and making jokes at their expense! Haha!

Very fun!

It was a bit of a shock clicking in and seeing Dory and Danny .. they along with two other younger doves were sitting on the rail to the basement last night when I went to close the bedroom window .. I stood there expecting them to fly away and they didnt .. I considered going for the camera but I didnt .. so I guess when they left here they went there .. glad you understood them and were able to snap a few shots.. they are truly 'blonde' birds .. pretty but dumb (Apologies to all natural blondes)

I have seen the 2 doves outside my window and I am pretty sure they were having the same conversation...

Lisa Gordon said...

I think these are one of my favorite birds Reena. They are truly so gentle.
Your photographs of them are wonderful, and I truly enjoyed reading this post!

Great photos ...

Very cute.. an impressive how they can talk with their beaks underwater! Nice crisp shots of one of the prettiest but dopiest birds. Thanks for the laughs. :)
