That Silly Tongue

We hung out on the shaded lower deck yesterday afternoon watching the birds and Roscoe’s silly tongue.

We have a perfect bird watching perch with our shaded lower deck. The marsh breezes keep things tolerable and the wildlife in the marsh is fun to watch. Sometimes, we might get a little bored and games commence.

But of all of the amusing things to watch, nothing may be quite as humorous as Roscoe’s tongue. Check this out.

Shade or not, it is hot here in the low country, so he says it’s not silly at all, but the rest of us disagree. What’s your opinion?

A second look at that silly tongue in case the first wasn't enough.

    since he can only sweat from his tongue I’d say it’s a tossup whether he’s
    incredibly HOT or just being funny! xoxo

    The length of Roscoe’s tongue hanging out of his mouth is proportional to his warmth index, perhaps?

Kiska says that on hot, sunny, spring days, you have to find shade wherever you can. Thanks Big Brother Kodiak.
