Ribbit!

Well, life is never dull around here! My son knows I am trying to find things to photograph to learn this camera better so he came up with something pretty cool out of our backyard!
Pretty sure Max wouldn't be too happy to share our home with this guy...sorry pal, gotta stay outside :)
This place has been here forever and sell all sorts of stuff!
It really is an old fashion Feed Store just outside of downtown Houston!
Look to the left, top shelf and you'll even see "day of the dead" statues

More stuff....I don't really know a lot about the Day of The Dead Celebration though.
Rooster or Hen?
My son now wants a duck! Not today dude!
Max sorta wants a duck buddy too! He really liked him and the duck wanted to be buddies too!
Say bye to the ducky Son and Max!

Have a beautiful today full of fun adventure!

  1. Oh my gosh that has to be the coolest store ever, I used to love to go to the feed store as a kid needless to say there are none in the NYC area. The duck, and toad, are so cute

  2. Awww...the ducky is too adorable no wonder Maxie and your son want one. Are you sure you couldn't give in? I love the cowboy hats in the store!

  3. We love these old fashioned stores. We only get them now in rural areas. Mum we think you are doing fine with the camera. We never really got to grip with ours apart from point and shoot. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly
    PS anything my peeps would try and make would look like something straight out of the day of the dead. LOL!

    1. It's funny to me how many native Houstonians don't know about this little gem ;)

  6. What a fun store!! Teach keeps asking for a pet duck ... We're still a hold out though and not adding a duck to our little family.

  10. That looks like a great store.....AND I'm positive I'd like a duck buddy (tee hee).....and I already HAVE a frog buddy (although he hasn't shown up in my yard this year yet....).

  11. Your photography is definitely getting better. Now we want a pet duck too. Well, once, I found a Canadian gosling that was rejected by its family and it was about to die, so I took it home and nursed it back to health. My sister swears that she took Rover (our gosling) out for a stroll when another family of Canadian geese adopted him. Let's hope it's true!

  12. you do the most FUN things! I wanna come and hang out with you one day!

  13. It sure is interesting when the humans are testing out the camera, you never know what they'll come across and it also means they may take pics of something other than us?! :)

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  15. That little duck is so cute - couldn't you just make a pond in your garden for him and maybe a few more and perhaps a couple of swans and....

  18. Looks like a wonderful place to go and get lost in just spending time looking. Hey Max, we will trade you a rabbit for a duckie!

    Now I want cows and sheep, and a farm, I may be able to get one someday.

  23. Great photos i love the store i prefer old over modern, do a compromise with your son and say he can have a rubber duck for the bath and a squeeky one for Max lol.

  24. Hehehe, a ducky?! What an excellent pet for Max and your son!! ;-D Quack Quack! I like chickens and ducks...they are very fun to watch! Happy Wednesday guys!

  25. OMD, has Flea been by? I'm sure she'd be pro-duck! Looks like a very interesting place to explore!

    I'd rather have the duck in the house than the frog any day!

  26. You don't look too sure about that duck Max and I don't blame you. I wouldn't trust a duck, they used to try and come and land on the pool in our last house and it was my job along with Zac to chase them off. The annoying things would swim to the middle of the pool - they knew we didn't like water and wouldn't go in after them - they are crafty!

  27. We just saw a toad last night in the yard. His photo looks great! I'd have to say that's a hen.

  28. The second-hand shop is a great place to kill time. I'm sure there will be many things one can find which you'd probably consider as treasure :)
