the lorikeets are eating the apples again

Penny was on duty today, guarding the house.

She was at the front door, ensuring no one passed by in the street unchallenged, no cats invaded our front yard, no strange people got in or out of cars, no dogs walked by.

But, out in the back yard, they were back. The apple thieves.

Where was Penny when she was needed for bird-barking duty?

I caught the thieves red-beaked, in the act of thievery.

Lassie and Benji, the birds are so beautiful I can't be angry they are eating our apples.

You are slipping, Penny! We're sending Mitch down to your house to help you out! He wouldn't allow any birdie to eat HIS apples!

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

Mitch would be a wonderful visitor. If only he could come, we could relax and leave it to him.
