Empty Nest Romance

I have a ton of photos and videos and stories for you about Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Be prepared to be bored titillated to tears all week long.

But for now it's Micro-Fiction Monday and this is my less than 140 characters contribution for this week's picture



Sadie and Sam are older now and the kids have flown the coop. They finally have time for each other in Pigeon Hollow, Florida.

PS - When I wrote this post it had just started snowing. It's almost midnight now and there is over a foot of snow on the ground. The wind is so loud that the cats are hiding.

We're having a Blizzard. OY!

wow! it must look beautiful outside. I live in Southern California I think today's highs were in the mid 70's degrees.

Loved your spin on the picture, very funny stuff.

Pigeon Hollow. Sounds like a romantic place for a foul romance ;O)
Our snow is melting, though it's still icy. Enjoy the snow :O)

Tracy said...

love the photo...and I hope you are surviving your 'blizzard'...

Our "snow" in SC came and went...like Gone with the Wind. :)

I hope the birds will be happy with each other.

Aw that's sweet!

Mine's up but I'm not sure folk get my subtle sense of humour. ;)

DJan said...

How adorable they are. I also hope they are happy together now that the kids have flown the coop. :-)

Stay warm and safe inside!

The Golden Years, Perfect Place to retire, Pigeon Hollow. Wonderful take on the picture. Hope the blizzard wasn't as too bad, and you had a wonderful Christmas. All the best for 2011

Sam and Sadie deserve to fly the coop themselves! Great one, Dianne.

A foot of snow?! Unthinkable. (We're just soggy in Oregon)

Happy New Year.

Cheryl said...

Great MM. We're blizzarding up here too. The winds are ahowling.

Ron said...

"Pigeon Hollow, Florida."

Bwhahahahahahaha! OMG, that was FLAWLESS!

Brilliant as usual, Dianne!

I can't wait to see the videos, pics, and hear your stories!

OMG...can you BELIEVE all the snow we got yesterday? I was jumping up and down like a little kid at work. Walking home last night, I thought the wind was going to pick me up and toss me into sky!

Today is gorgeous, isn't it?

Stay warm, dear lady!

X to you and the gang!

Granny Sue said...

Aw, that's sweet.

as for your blizzard--stay tucked in and enjoy it!

Reb said...

Cute and so true;) Stay warm!

Pat said...

Aw, this is so cute! I bet Florida is where you'd like to be right about now.

Au and Target said...

Haha, I love these MMs. You're so fun.

quilly said...

I hope you've shoveled out by now -- or shot off to Florida to join the pigeons!

Linda said...

I do believe you folks in New Jersey may have gotten the worst of this blizzard so I sure hope you never lost power and are dug out a bit by now. We didn't get anywhere near the amount of accumulation they were warning us about but boy was it windy and still is! Would definitely blow those two pigeons right back on down to Florida if they tired to venture up this way!

SparkleFarkle said...

I think Sadie and Sam should be thanking their lucky stars to be sitchiated in Florida, because, holy snowflakes, Batman, New Jersey got hit hard! Might I offer THESE?

Stay snuggled (and Happy New Year!),

Love this!

Susan Fobes said...

This is cute! That blizzard missed us but hit all of our relatives-quite lucky for us I think. Shoul I say enjoy the snow...

Linda Reeder said...

I think that blizzard has you thinking about Florida.
Hope you and yours are safe and snug.

christopher said...

Sorry I missed this...I haven't read a micro-fiction in a while...yours is a gem.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Ha! Excellent!!! :-)

Happy, Happy New Year, you great lady, you.

Okay -I will give in, and say that was pretty gosh darn good. But just so you know I am not going to make a habit of it. Also lets be clear - it did not make me get all teary eyed. BTW - I got good news and bad news. The bad news is, this snow storm will bring with it a nasty sickness that will befall on you. The good news is, you will recover around January 7th. You didn't know I could fortell the future did you?
Hmmmm..... I am so embarassed.
