love the pictures!! so darling!!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Love the quote; it fits with my thirteen this week! The pictures rock, too; that lion is the best.

As for me, the manuscript's done. Been done. I've been trying to get interest from an agent for over a year now -- but no one wants a book about a guy who happens to be a rock star. They say no one will buy it.

Let's prove them wrong, shall we?

Di said...

Did you notice that the babies that are girls are rolling their eyes at their Moms and saying, "You're not going to wear that, are you?"

storyteller said...

Picturing – Thanks for the compliment and the link so I could find your blog too. I’ve left a comment there as well.

SSP – I’m happy you enjoyed them. I thought they were adorable and it was a good way for me to figure out how to get them from Flickzzz into Picasa to make the collages.

Susan – Yes, I see that it does. My favorite is, of course, the giraffe … but I love all of these actually. I’ll hold the positive thought about you finding an agent and/or a publisher … and would love to see you prove them wrong!

Thanks to each of you for stopping by and happy T-13ing to all.
Hugs and blessings,

The cute - it burns!! *gush*

Nancy Lindquist-Liedel said...

There is nothing cuter than a sweet little baby giraffe. Yes, I am totally selling out my species, but I had two birth children and I love them, but cute is not a word I would use for their first month in the world. I am gonna so have to pay for their therapy for thinking that, lol!

storyteller said...

Di – Cute! You must have teenagers, right? I suspect you stopped by while I was responding to previous comments. I almost missed you entirely.

Katia – It certainly does ;--)

Nancy – I luv giraffes myself … and suspect your girls will understand eventually (hopefully w/o therapy)!

Thanks to each of you for visiting and sharing your views. I wish you a wonderful day!
Hugs and blessings,

Happy WW (on Thursday)! I would love a copy of the rhino family if possible...

Please visit my humorous look at Roger Clemens' puppy if you have time.

Very timely, very cool. I was inspired, whether you meant it or not!

Joy Des Jardins said...

Cute, cute photos. My kids love this.

Britni said...

aww I love baby animals. Thanks for making me smile :)

Betty said...

Such sweet pictures of the animals. Nice choice for today.

I have been meaning to tell you how much I enjoy the thought for the day that you always post.

Unknown said...

Perfect post - I am an animal freak! I loved looking at these adorable little families. And, hey, you got 16 comments already and the day's not even over. Good work friend. Thx as always for your visit and happy TT :)

storyteller said...

Villager – Thanks and feel free. I got the photos from Flickzzz. I loved your photo of Roger Clemen’s puppy!

Rian – I did mean it. Yours was one of the 1st T-13 posts … and I was struck by the serendipity of my own post as related to yours. I’m happy you stopped by and felt inspired.

Joy – Methinks there’s nothing quite like little baby critters with their mommies. Thanks … and you have a good one too my friend.

SusieJ – I’m happy you and your kids have enjoyed today’s T-13.

Playful – I love the name of your blog and am delighted to bring you smiles through my post today.

Betty – I’m happy you enjoyed the photos and the quotes.

Chuck – I love animals too so I guess that’s one more thing we have in common my friend. Sandee’s ‘girafee’ was amazing yesterday. I kept returning to visit him. Yez … I’ve had visitors and comments, but I suspect I’ll not catch up with the comments YOU have by posting early … and that’s actually okay with me.

I appreciate each of you stopping by and sharing your comments. If I’ve not been to your blog yet, I’ll be there soon. Happy T-13 to all!
Hugs and blessings,

Oh, so very, very cute! What a great idea. I love animals, but animal babies are all that love times a bazillion because they are so darn cute.

Unknown said...

I do believe my favorite is the lioness and her cub. But they're all great.

storyteller said...

Pussreboots – I’m glad you think so and Happy T-13 to you! I always enjoy visiting your blog.

Maggie – I agree! There’s nothing quite like fur-critters (or feathered friends) … and I’m glad you enjoyed my T-13.

LceeL – It’s interesting how we each have a different favorite, isn’t it?

Sandy Carlson – I’m so happy to have ‘made your day’ … Thanks!

EllenB – I’m glad you think so ;--)

Chelle – Ah … the bears do look cuddily don’t they?

Greatfullivin – Seems like there’s something for everyone here!

RW said...

I like the wildlife photos very cool! Have a great weekend!!

Karen said...

Oh how sweet! I have never seen a picture of a mom and her baby (any species) that I didn't like. The love, care and devotion is so completely universal!

chanpheng said...

Baby animals, no matter what they are, are just so cute. Nice pictures.

My T13 is in honor of International Women's Day which is on 8 March. Thirteen Famous (and not so famous) Women

Tink said...

Ooooh, so cute! I adore those pics...
Thanks for visiting my inspiring people TT.

Eve – ‘Tis my pleasure always. I’m happy you enjoyed them.

Sandy – I hadn’t seen a baby flamingo before either! Thanks, my Thursday was busy but lovely.

Colleen – Hmmm … that is unusual here in So Cal ;--)

Cricket – Moms & babies warm the heart.

Lori – Happy T-13 to you as well. It’s always a pleasure to visit your blog.

AFF – That’s a keeper for lots of reasons. I suspect I’ll use it again in a post illustration.

Chuck – Thanks for the tags and the nomination. I’ve shared the ‘Friendship Chain’ today in my Haiku Friday post and will tackle the others over the next few days ... maybe. My cuppa coffee is tasty this morning … how’s yourz?

Nicole and Nap Warden – I’m glad you both thought so ;--)

Roger – Thanks for stopping by and I hope your weekend is wonderful too!

I love this. Thanks!

storyteller said...

Yertle - I'm glad and you're welcome!
Hugs and blessings,

Yolanda said...

I love these mosaics . Theya re so pretty.

storyteller said...

Thanks … I had to teach myself some new things about Picasa in order to create these collages from photos I didn’t take myself, but I’m happy with how they turned out and am happy you enjoyed them. Your Skywatch photo of Niagara Falls is wonderful and I’m so glad to know about One Single Impression, so thanks for the link.
Hugs and blessings,

Sonya said...

These are adorable! My favorite is the pelican and the penguin! I'd love to have some pet penguins! LOL!

storyteller said...

Sonya – I happy you didn’t miss these QTs. I love them all … but it’s cool how everyone who visits seems to have different favorites. I used to think it would be fun to have a pet giraffe, but cleaning up after a dog is a big enough task for me. LOL

Thanks for stopping by this evening and sharing your thoughts.

Hugs and blessings,

Tina Coruth said...

I love these photos, Storyteller!!

storyteller said...

Tina – I’m happy you enjoyed them and hope you’re having fun catching up with all you’ve missed while your computer was being fixed.
Hugs and blessings,
