Default lions & tigers & bears oh my~

Ok, my list of visiting animals just got a bit longer. There is a squirrel hanging by it's rear legs, dangling at my bedroom window. This is a first!

Some kind of wire,runs along the house,and must be lower now due to the storm,and is now a gymboree for this squirrel!! The nails against the glass got my attention,and did you hear my scream? Oh,and he just fell into the bushes !

So this is # 3 on the zooilogical list of visitors...lets see what the winter brings!!

Default Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My

We have a squirrel clown, too. He lives in a big pine tree near the car port and runs along the wire fence that separates our property from the neighbors. Rather miraculous that he can run long the very top of that prickly wire fence. He has a cranky personality and lets us know that he doesn't like us out there on "his" land.

I'm used to seeing deer, parades of wild turkeys walk by, and, the occasional coyote, but, this is just crazy

I can sympathize. Our yard hosts snakes, squirrels, deer, groundhogs, moles, possums and we live in a city!

Hope the squirrel is o.k.

Welcome to Cruisemates... Betsy, it looks like the woods, have come to you!

My strange saga's continue...I hung 5 items on the line to air out, figuring the light breeze, and, cool days, would work their magic. Yesterday when I went to take them off the line...one had dropped with the hanger, right below, and 4 were still hanging...The 5th, and my favorite jacket, was noooowhere to be found, so, there is some wild beast, strutting her stuff in the woods, with my stuff.....woe is me.

A critter is wearing your jacket.

What next?

I don't think the animals like you very much Trip.
