Turkeys gone courting

 The hens are ignoring the males below. 

 The males are like teenage boys strutting around puffing up to show off but still the hens ignore them. 
The kitty justice is the daily show will continue until the hens go to nest.

Dog woods up close to house

 This white dogwood tree was dug  up out of the woods on the farm and replanted years ago in the yard. I thought it looked great with the Japanese red maple behind it. 
 This pink dogwood was given to me by Mimi but for some reason it has not grown very tall. But the blooms are gorgeous. Photo below. It is out front and both it and the white one can be seen from the hall. 

This light pink dogwood is not as old as the one out front but it likes where it has been planted out back between the house and the cabin and it is twice as tall as the one out front. However, the blooms are pale and not the deep color pink. 
The Kitty Justice is they are all very pretty and enjoyed.

Japanese Red Maple

 As you can see the tree has not gotta a full coat of leafy clothes but if you stand under it and look up (photo below) it shows it's colors dramatically .
The kitty justice is can you imagine how pretty it will be with all it's clothes.

Turks

 The Big Guy.
 Let's stroll up the Hill. 
 Hey, this how you do it. See my wings touch the ground. 
Bye, Bye Baby Good Bye. 

The first Friday morning in April outside my bedroom window, I heard "Gobble, gobble, gobble."
From the morning rain there were rain drops all over my window BUT then it dawned on me the adjoining bedroom would be further under the eves. Quickly, I retrieved my camera from the library and got a step stool(this is a natural thing to do if you are one of the short people) to stand on so I could capture the above photos. 
A little fact from our TWRA calendar, turkeys have 5,500 feathers of which 18 are long tail feathers.
The Kitty Justice is I wonder who counted those feathers to provide us with the fact.

Mother

Vinia was sixteen when this photo was taken. When I was looking up our family history, I located a Great Aunt with the name Vinia.  Mother and my big Sis are the only ones I had ever known to have this name until I went on a history search and that Great Aunt was the only other I found with the name. To correctly pronoun you let the second i be silent. It is Vi (long i) Na. 
She was absolutely THE BEST WOMAN I HAVE EVER KNOWN. She taught me quite a lot and I am thankful of the wisdom she imparted.  When folks say I remind them of my Mother, well I puff up like a true bandy hen. No better compliment can be given to me. 
The Kitty Justice is today is her birthday and I wish I could say to her "Happy Birthday."

Angry

Do you see the ANGRY FACE IN THE SKY? We all have one of those faces and sometimes we show it and other times we wear duck feathers and let a comment or action just roll off our feathers. 
Do you have a phrase that can make you instantly see the color red and you have to bite your tongue to keep from getting in someone's face. If you want to rub Kitty Justice's fur the wrong way all you have to say is "YOU NEED TO DO ----" No matter what it happens to be that I need to do per you, that phrase is like striking a match to brush soaked in kerosene.  Hey, I am 64 years old and if I do not know what needs to be done now, well don't tell me as I do not wish to hear your suggestion. My big Sis was the world's worst until I just flat told her not to ever use that phrase on me again because I was 64 damn years old and I knew what I needed to do. Since then she has never used that phrase again in my presents. She and others may still think I need to do --- but she is not saying it out loud to me.  Yep, I may know what I need to do but it just might not be the time or the place to do it. As Clint Eastwood's character, Gunney Highway said "You have to adapt, overcome and improvise."(Can yawl tell I like to quote, Clint) The main thing I need to do is keep a good attitude and be HAPPY. 
The Kitty Justice is to keep your council  to yourself as this Kat travels her own path.
