Impromptu Photo Shoot

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  When we were out on our walk the other morning, Mom noticed we had some really awesome-looking skies, so when we got up near the top of the Water Tower Trail, she wanted to do an impromptu photo shoot of us girls.  Hmm.  It went something like this ...

"Smile, girls!"
"How's this, Mom?"
"Hey, what's that?!?"

Did I mention this was when we were having 40mph or higher wind gusts?  You wouldn't believe all the stuff flying around!

"Perfect, Cam!  Umm... Maggie?"
"The wind is tickling my ear!"
"Birdie!  No, wait.  COW!"

Seriously crazy wind!

"Oh, Maggie!  Ha roo woo roo!"
"No, seriously!"
"You DO know Mom has cookies, right?"
"Could have been a cow ..."
"Hurry, Mom!  It's the money shot!"
"Why didn't you SAY you had cookies?!?"

I think she got what she wanted in the long run - even if I didn't smile like Cam.  There were too many distractions!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. How can you be expected to pose pretty when there's so much going on?? PS: mom says to look out for... What's that? Really? OK. She said watch out for flying houses.

  2. sheesh - if she wants good pictures, she needs to disclose the cookies right away :)

  3. Whoa ladies I hope you didn't see Dorothy or Toto or flying monkeys in the Kansas skies.
    Love the photo shoot too
    Hugs madi your bfff

  7. Hey, Maggie, don't let Cammie fool you. We are pretty sure that cow was one of the ones the farmers were looking for in Lenexa the other day. They said they came from a big truck that tipped over, but we bet it was the wind that blew them here.

  8. We think each picture is a masterpiece and the sky is just gorgeous!

    You can see fur like 87 miles... and OH THAT Colorful Sky.

  10. I definitely think it might have been a cow.

  11. We had lots of wind around here yesterday with peak gusts registering at over 80 mph!!! Needless to say we lost power for about 18 hours. We can see how that high wind can be a bit distracting.

  12. These photos are gorgeous! Even if there were wind distractions, they came out great. I think everyone is having extreme wind these days, the wind turbines must all be working overtime, LOL!

  14. Wowzers! Those were some beautiful and dramatic skies. I love both the first and the last photo. Way to go mom and you girls! You nailed it!

  15. All great shots! True essence of who they are !! Btw, winds or not... We know who's the ham here !

  16. She didn't even SAY she had cookies?! Sheesh.

    Great shots Maggie! The distracted ones made My Margret smile as well, which she said was sorely needed today.
