I went to Earth Day!

So my mom has been away from the computer fora few days and a lot has happened – I’ve got three different posts waiting in the wings for you! But first – I went to Earth Day at Mount Trashmore yesterday. It was nice to get out of the the house on a beautiful day but mom made me walk ALOT and I tired by the time we got to Granmama’s that afternoon. But I had fun – here are some pictures I took (I forgot to take some selfies and ones of Bella; oh well, there’s always our next adventure! Really, I can’t be expected remember everything – mom has to do some of the work!) Enjoy the photos. Barkingly Yours, LadyBird

Mount Trashmore is the perfect place to hold an Earth Day - it's made of trash!!

In front of the mountain the kids from the Governor's School of the Arts were painting a dumpster.

I know, it looks like I took a picture of a man's shirt - but I was trying for the owl behind him. He is from a group that rescues wild animals. The owl in the back can no longer fly so he is an animal ambassador now.

No, not another shirt - but a red tailed hawk who has arthritis and cannot fly. He's an animal ambassador, too. Did you know that it against the law to bother a raptor (hawk, eagle, etc) - even collect it's feathers?

The weather was so nice when we got to G's we sat outside for a while.

Success! Here's mom and me waiting in the car (see me in the rear view?) for G to get back with the fried chicken! There she is walking to the car! Yum!!
