Serene Portraits Sunday

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  Did you notice Mom changed our header again yesterday?  First she subbed this photo in on the left ...

Me and Cam by the fireplace

... then she changed the background from the greenish one to blues (it brings out my left eye, don't you think?), then she moved the birds around a bit. She didn't think you could see the Snowy Plover well enough and both Mom and Dad thought the log the Bald Eagle was perching on looked like a woodchuck or something. You can see Mom's favorite duck - the Northern Shoveler - better, too. All three birds are among Mom's faves. ANYWAY ...

Where was I? Oh, right. The photo by the fireplace.  I came into the living room the other day and saw Mom and Cam were doing something.  Naturally, I wondered what was going on!

"Hey, Cam!  Whatcha doing?"
"I'm posing.  Mom?  Can you still see me?"
"Yes, I ... Maggie!"

Oh!  Mom mentioned me by name!  I assumed, as I'm sure all of you would, that meant she wanted me in the photo!

"Wait!  Let me make sure I look OK!"

Once I had checked myself in the fireplace glass, I got into position.

"How's this, Mom?"
"A portrait of both of us is even better, right, Mom?"
"Perfect, girls!"

Then Mom had to push the session even further and asked us to do a "down".  That was when I realized there was something missing from this photo shoot and ...

"What do you mean, you don't have cookies?"
"Better take that shot fast, Mom!"
"Who's a good girl!?!?"

I can't believe Cam was posing like she was without cookies!  I mean, I assumed there would be treats involved along the way -- right?  Sheesh!  But yes, in keeping with the serenity mentioned in the title, afterwards, we did get a couple of those tiny Zuke's treats, so it wasn't a total loss.

The next time I see Cammie posing for Mom without me, remind me to check for cookies first -- OK?

Have a serene day!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
