GLAMPING

Looks like the Mistress's crazy summer schedule is starting with this weekend. I'm off  for a long four day weekend to the Pocono Mountains for the Tropical Islands Weekend, at the fun, and always fabulous, if not debacherous, Woods Campground. I'll be joined by my dear old, ollllllld and I do mean old, friend and sister Mame, aka David Dust of the famous David Dust blog, who some of you may remember. He hasn't blogged since 2013, but it is still an entertaining read. Mame is the one who talked yours truly into starting a blog. Since leaving New York, and being back in Harrisburg, we now have time to see each other more regularly. There's already been one drunken jaunt! Look at bitches!!!!!  So we are being hosted by our good friend Winfred who has a site there, and we will be communing with nature, enjoying a libation or 20, taking in the lovely views, some nature walks and then hit the swell dance hall at night. If your in the area or at the woods enjoy this weekends events.
Like I said, we will be enjoying the views. We are hoping to run into a bear or two for bear hugs.....
Their frisky this time of year!!!!
 I'll return next week sometime.

Houseboys are on stand-by.

BUNNY!!!

In the last couple of years, there has been a debate among younger people about what constituents good drag. Most queens have heard it. With the creation of Rupauls Drag Race, many viewers are thinking that the queens of drag race are the end all of drag. With their structured make- up formulas, and big budgets and flawless looks, many are thinking that unless your a stunning fishy queen, then your not doing it right. I think people have to understand some of these queens have to change their aesthetic just a bit to have a chance to win. But there are no rules when it comes to drag and their shouldn't be. I have been to the shows of Dina Martina and Miss Richfield, and have over heard comments about them looking old and unglamorous. Even Varla had gotten "not fish enough". While drag race has been good for opening the doors and giving a glimpse of drag.... and thank goodness some clowns have won like Sharon, Sasha and Jinkxx to break the mold, at the same time many are thinking drag is just about glam, and it's not. My all time favorite queens have always been more like my bitch Lady Bunny, Biana Del Rio, Dina Martina and Miss Richfield. Make it campy honey. Lady Bunny did this video the other day discussing sheep in the drag community, fans often limited perspective of the art form, and the difference between competing on "Rupauls Drag Race" and existing in the world of drag, and discusses the new HBO documentary Wig. She also slams reality star train wrecks and the grand buffoon himself!!! It's an entertaining watch.I couldn't agree more with her. on the local queens sort of getting the shaft in favor of Drag Race girls. While the Dragrace girls are a great bunch, how many more of the same queens can we see??? And can you name any local queens in your area? See what happens when we're somber?


 
And my all time favorite library read of Bunny's about RuPaul of all people when she attended an event with Heidi Klum!!!!


And remember support your local queens too!!!

MONDAY MOMENTS

"When all Americans are treated as equal, no matter who they are or whom they love, we are all more free."--Barack Obama
"Openness may not completely disarm prejudice, but it's a good place to start."--Jason Collins
"The only queer people are those who don't love anybody."--Rita Mae Brown

"This world would be a whole lot better if we just made an effort to be less horrible to one another."--Ellen Page

"Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?"--Author Ernest J. Gaines

"I hate the word homophobia. It's not a phobia. You're not scared. You're an asshole."--Morgan Freeman

"It takes some intelligence and insight to figure out you're gay and then a tremendous amount of balls to live it and live it proudly."--Jason Bateman

"Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself."--Harvey Fierstein

"All of us who are openly gay are living and writing the history of our movement. We are no more - and no less - heroic than the suffragists and abolitionists of the 19th century; and the labor organizers, Freedom Riders, Stonewall demonstrators, and environmentalists of the 20th century. We are ordinary people, living our lives, and trying as civil-rights activist Dorothy Cotton said, to 'fix what ain't right' in our society."--Senator Tammy Baldwin
Let's keep the fires burning bright....always!

Hope everyone had a great Monday!!!

MEANWHILE

Don't look at me like that.

USUAL SUSPECTS FOR CHRISTINA

This post is for Christina who said she couldn't wait to see the foxes. Since last time we visited the usual suspects around the Casa du Borghese, there has been much excitement. Over the last few weeks, I have gotten some beautiful pictures. I  knew the foxes were still here, for their screaming at night gives them away. It wasn't till my afternoon outing to see Anne Marie and Fearsome that I caught my first glimpse of her new kits. Oh my goodness are they adorable and have been very active in the ivy bed at night. I often sit outside very late, and it's amazing how close they get. But I dare not move. Surprisingly, they have been sighted in the day time when it's quiet here with everyone out.

The mother vixen by the refuse area. Look at that beauty!!!!!!
Two of the four baby kits this year. She has got quite the active bunch this year. The father has also been present. Red foxes pair for life. They remain together from mid winter through summer. In the autumn they become solitary, but then reunite to mate in January and February. New kits come along in early April usually.  On two separate occasion I got some fun video  on my phone one afternoon with my friend Pixie.
Brace yourself for cuteness.....


Meanwhile Ozzie and Harriett had quite the flock!!!!
I noticed one day there number went up. I wondered if they adopted some poor goslings that got left behind from another couple. Canadian Geese have a strong urge to be parental and have been know to even raise ducklings. To my knowledge they hold there own from the foxes. Just wait till my geese lay feet deep of goose droppings in DC!

Beautiful Red!!
 His female right now is molting and wouldn't have it to be photographed. A chirping sparrow sits behind him.
The Blue Jays are all grown now and currently have quite the noisy flock. Blue Jays and their young return each year to their location. I may have to count them in on my world domination to rid  DC of the evilness. Their not to fond of whats been going on. And as we know Jays are not to be trifled with.
Fun fact...the pigment in Blue Jay feathers is melanin, which is brown. The blue color is caused by scattering light through modified cells on the surface of the feather barbs. My neighbors must love the noise.
This fellow showed up in the woods. I believe it's a warbler of some sort.
What are you looking at?
My peckers have tripled!!!! I still have the Red Bellied couple. One can hear their drain pipe ditty every morning.
The cute little Downy perched on a rock
And I was very excited to see my first ever Pileated Woodpecker!!!! My god are they huge!!!! I have only spotted him twice, but I now know they are here.
One of the first and last birds to serenade is the lovely catbird. One of my favorite birds. They are actually quite intelligent and can emulate the sound of up to 12 other birds. But their own song is quite pretty. They often sing till the darkness hits.
A lovely mourning dove....
Nocturne flew in to repot about the great numbers of ravens, crows and blackbird numbers I have in my army now.  We are going to make the Birds film look like a walk in the park.
Last but certainly not least is my dear Bouvier, who tells me the squirrels are also part of my world domination on DC, by the tens of thousands. He says they have quite the diabolical  plan ready and in place. It will be total mayhem. Bouvier greets me in the morning to collect the peanut I take out, and drops me a few more tidbits of the plan. 

We all intend to smash the wheel.
Don't be fooled by our cuteness.
