Bird Juice

Our garden fox showed up again yesterday morning, and seemed very interested in our bird bath.

Olga loves the bird bath, too. She loves to drink from it, which never fails to gross me out, especially since no matter how often I freshen the water it's always disgusting. Dave and I call it "bird juice."

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that "bird juice" would appeal to a fox as much as to a dog.


Yesterday Dave and I went to see "Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie." OK, it's hardly cerebral, but I've been a fan of AbFab since its heyday in the '90s and I had to see how the characters were managing the modern world. We had a great time. The movie is a hoot, and full of celebrity cameos and appearances by nearly all the cast members from the original show. However, let me just say, NO MOVIE is worth the £41.66 it cost us for two tickets to an afternoon matinee, a coffee, a small popcorn and a bottle of water. (That's $55, converting our newly weakened pound.)

This is why we never go to movies in a cinema. Insane.

This morning I'm off to Tampa for two weeks of family time in the Sunshine State!


  1. Where else is a fox to get clean water outdoors? As for the cost of that outing...Yikes! Have a safe trip and best to your family.

  2. Fabulous shots of the fox! He looks so sly ... ;)

    I would never pay that much to see a movie, yikes!

    Have a safe trip!

  3. You might as well have been in a lawn chair five feet away, judging by the clarity of your fox photos.
    Safe travels and a nod of respect to the idea visiting Florida in July!

  4. I am in love with your fox!
    See you soon! Looking forward to it!

  5. Wonderful fox photos so close up. I have a little cat who likes to drink from the bird bath (must be the aroma of bird).
    I look forward to the AbFab film and think it opens here in the U.S. mid July. London prices are wicked.
    Have a good flight and enjoy the family time.

  6. Fantastic photos of the fox.
    I'm so glad to hear the AbFab movie is fun and funny. I can't wait to see it here. It's funny how some silly tv shows catch on and others flop. AbFab was one that caught on and was wickedly funny. I thought our movie prices were awful. $55.00...yikes.

  7. AbFab was on late night TV here for a couple of years and I watched it every chance I got. That is really expensive for a movie, isn't it?

    Bird juice - haha! And yuck! But funny :)

  8. More critters from the wild are finding out how to survive in the city. a friend of mine has a photo of a moose drinking out of a bird bath.

  9. My friend and I are going to see Ab Fab together, price be damned!
