Oh you men ..

Having seen several pictures recently of husbands and partners in various states of unconciousness in their gardens began wondering if this restricted to just the human species …


At last the wife out ..the kids playing now for some me time …now how to get comfy ?


Nope this not quite right ..wonder what those chairs are like ?


Erm not bad ..next time I m in that kitchen must remember a cushion.


Guess this ll have to do for now ..


Thank goodness that greedy bird hasnt seen me ..


Now that looks like a good idea ..wonder if the missus will notice ?


Running round after these kids all day can take it out of a man ..


Ah bliss ..


And just exactly what do you think you are doing ? Wonder if she ll notice ? How daft am I ? Ah well nice while it lasted .. thought I might get away with it while she was ’ logged on ’ ..


I m hungry Dad ..


Listen son why dont your join your brothers and sisters in that compost heap ..its quiet in there and I can ..


Oh you can what ? Now back to it ..sigh and you humans think you got it rough !


Tea break over ..back to work then !

Oh Ray, as ever a wonderful Blog. Love the blackbird, lol.
We've seen some in our garden spread out - I thought they were sunbathing.
Your baby robin is bigger than Rocky - must be all the mealworms and what is he doing on the bark - dusting himself.?
Fantastic shots that we come to expect, they really are amazing. Thanks, Dawn

Brilliant blog. I've seen birds making themselves comfy on the grass and borders but never on a table or chair!! Great to have captured it on camera.

8 Jul, 2009

 

AAAAAawwwwwwwwww Poor U Ray getting all woken Up :) lol

8 Jul, 2009

 

Yes iv Noticed that already Ray lol :) I wonder if Jane Knows yet ? LOL :)

8 Jul, 2009

 

Thanks Bonkers. A brilliant and excellently illustrated blog. I hope all the women out there take note of the plight of us males. The blood sweat and tears we shed for them never seems to be appreciated and the result can be seen in the pic of the robin all in spread eagled on the floor. A position I might add, which is not unfamiliar to me.

8 Jul, 2009

 

fantastic blog and photos yet again.
i love watching birds trying to take it easy.

8 Jul, 2009

 

John asked me tonight if I would like to swap places with him .......

8 Jul, 2009

 

Lol....Toto...most of the women seem to have missed the poor male robin trying to take a break !! Typical..only see what they want to see.Unless of course WE try to take a break! They never seem to miss that !

Thanks Seaburngirl..........

8 Jul, 2009

8 Jul, 2009

 

Brilliant as usual Bb,love the photo,s and your little quips always make me smile...........

8 Jul, 2009

 

Thanks Lincslass..we seem to have some real natural players here !

8 Jul, 2009

 

Thanks for the laugh Bb once again your captions really do bring the photo's to life (your a natural) and we men do have it rough all work and no play its a hard life, I did score one for the boys today though I cleaned the WHOLE bathroom and hoovered ALL the hall, stairs and landing and I did'nt have to be asked twice ... how about that girls?

8 Jul, 2009

 

VERY impressed Bob!!! How long did it take you - 5 minutes?.....only joking, please can you have a word with my husband as he's about to retire and needs to get in training. I don't think housework is anywhere in his retirement plans!

9 Jul, 2009

 

Obviously that blackbird is a male but how do you know that robin is too? Could be a female doing all the work. Seriously though, IS there a way to tell the difference?

9 Jul, 2009

 

lol ah BB that was just excellent. your garden is brilliant with so much going on in it .

9 Jul, 2009

 

Hey Lily have you been talking to my wife? Actually it took me 15 minutes ..... with a 10 minutes tea break hehehehehe
As for the Robins I think I am right in saying that the bird that is the dullest is the female, correct me if I'm wrong Bb :o))

9 Jul, 2009

 

Superb blog and photo's....cheered me up on what was a not so good day for me....thanks.

9 Jul, 2009

 

great blog again BB, is that a door mouse in pic, bigger ears for a normal mouse, im loving your blackbird, so cute and cheeky to :o)

9 Jul, 2009

 

I'm not getting involved in the male/female 'who works hardest' argument - I KNOW it's us females! Love the photos and the captions - brilliant blog, really made me chuckle.

9 Jul, 2009

 

Smashing Bb.

9 Jul, 2009

 

Thanks Eileen Phil .Sanbaz and Paul....

Lily and Bob...technically,and in all the books sexes are alike but seeing as how the males defend their terretories it stands to reason that their plumage sometimes appears to be more red !
Gee you would say that Lol

9 Jul, 2009

 

San...its a fieldmouse !

9 Jul, 2009

 

Not sure if we won that round or not Bonkers. Can you ask the ref for his score card?

9 Jul, 2009

 

Think score about even Toto..Bob certainly held his corner against Lily ! Lol

9 Jul, 2009

 

Well done Bob. We need you.

9 Jul, 2009

 

thanx BB, dont know what the tiny mice we get are then, im sure they dont have long ears like yours,

9 Jul, 2009

 

Yayyyy!! I do the washing up every night too as I cannot stand pots hanging around for ages, but I have to have pink marigolds on as my poor delicate hands cannot stand water too hot! ........hehehe now THERE'S a blog pic !!!
How do we stand now Bb gotta be infront a midges :o)))

9 Jul, 2009

 

These are wood mice Sanbaz ..not like house mice which duller grey if you see them outdoors more likely to be field mice.

Ha Bob think so but probably below most other forms of life esp as they can produce sperm in a lab ..someone asked what are men for then ? I would say well anything with a plug on lol

9 Jul, 2009

 

Ha ha oh yes I can do plugs too :o)))) earlier (very earlier) today my daughter phoned us and said "Daaaaad! I've got no power .... help!" so off I trots in me slippers and when I get there its just a circuit breaker tripped, hmmmm I suppose thats what Dad's are for, but I did show her what to do if it happened again.:o)

9 Jul, 2009

 

Great Blog BB.....love all your wildlife photos...........

10 Jul, 2009

 

That's what Dads are for Bob, why bother to learn how to do it yourself when it's so much easier to get Dad round. We've got a daughter like that too. Really you men love being indispensible, don't you?

10 Jul, 2009

 

No!

10 Jul, 2009

 

Great Pictures bonkersbon. x

11 Jul, 2009

 

Great blog - really enjoyed it - as I was watching it my son peered over my shoulder and said "is it a bird, is it a plane...!!"
Typical man!

11 Jul, 2009

 

wounderful pics

11 Jul, 2009

11 Jul, 2009

 

I've been away Bb and have only just seen your blog...it made my day..lol.....wonderful, thanks.....:>)

12 Jul, 2009

 

What a brilliant blog Bb great sense of humour made me smile heeps.

12 Jul, 2009

 

hahahahahahahaha! You've done it again, Bb! Wonderful blog and pics!

Stereotyping doesn't apply here, role reversal definitely works, lol ! Your blogs, illustrated with such fab pics, are a real tonic. Reminds me of a work colleague who has a great talent - he takes the Dilbert cartoons from the newspaper and edits the captions to suit people and situations at work. Even the grumpiest folks/victims there have to laugh at the outcomes! Fab! :-)

12 Jul, 2009

 

Thank you - glad it raises a smile not hard when such characters in the garden.Often asked how do we get so close but these pics show they just pay us no heed !

Oh yes David know the one you mean cant do anything right for doing wrong ..thats a real talent if he gets the grumpy ones to smile .

12 Jul, 2009

 

love your blogs your photos are excellent Keep them coming
