Olive and Popeye have a baby

Just yesterday I was telling you about putting an egg under Olive, the little Bantam hen. Well look what I found when I went out this evening to gather the eggs...



Yes, a proud mama, and she waited a long time for this baby chick...



A surprise for Eli.  A $10.00 bone from Poppy... 




Not a peep was heard out of Eli for at least two hours.  Had to spread an old sheet on the living room floor to help catch the grease and crumbs. 



Poppy and I will probably have to re-do every room in the house once this big puppy grows up. The fat leather sofa we've enjoyed for several years now is totally scratched. Eli lays on his back on that sofa and looks like he's doing the back stroke and he has lots of toe nails to scratch with!



Eli and I stretched out on this old iron bed out on the back porch yesterday afternoon. I had been mowing up around the garden and was simply worn out. Trouble is, Eli and his teddy bear take up most of the room and Eli wanted to play, not rest. Needless to say, I was back on my feet pretty fast.



Mostly wanted to show you the new baby. :) Thank you for visiting.


Love,
Henny

  1. What a cute baby! Yes animals are hard on furniture. Chance has his own love seat and it has a cover on it that is washable. When we first got him we had an old couch that he claimed and wore it to pieces mostly running and banking off of it to elude someone chasing him:)

    1. That 's so funny. Eli does that too...jumps on the couch with all four feet and right back off and keeps going.

  2. Popeyes looks like a proud, and protective, father! Good work, Olive. Your big baby is pretty cute, too, with his big old bone.
    I just love all your screened porches, and I'd be tempted to spend the whole summer out there.

    1. We should spend more time on the porch, but stay so busy. Poppy is off work today. We did sit on the porch a few minutes and eat a popsicle. :)

  3. Hello Henny! So sweet for Mrs.Olive and Mr. Popeye! She is very protective and well she should be. I love your bed on the porch, I can never come visit, I would stay and sleep on that porch forever! Animals are hard on furniture and I lost my darling of 15 years and still can't bring myself to get rid of her old chair.. Oh well, they make life so much sweeter by their unconditional love. Have a great day, Terry

    1. Oh, I would keep her old chair too. It is like losing a family member. Fifteen years is a long time. Hope you're having a great day too Terry! Love, Henny

  4. What did Eli do, other than being totally cute, to deserve a $10.00 bone?

    Are you planning a baby shower for Olive. Since this is her first baby she will need some diapers and onesies to start out with. Or is Popeye going to have to fork over for the layette?

    1. That is funny Victoria. I'm scared to death something is going to happen to that tiny baby. She sure is protective over it.

  5. A happy family portrait. I wonder if baby will be spoiled, being an only child and all.
    Oh! and you have to come up with a name (that is, if Olive and Popeye haven't already. . .)
    And Eli looks to have arrived in heaven. Happiness all around for everyone!

    1. Well I was thinking about the name "sweet Pea". Wasn't that Popeye and Olive Oil's baby? :)

  6. Liked reading about both babies -- the larger white one and the little yellow one.
