Hi Miss C,
There has been
only one siting by me
of a chipmunk so far this summer.
Chipmunks don't like it too hot or two cold.
And I don't think I do either!

On another note, I saw a man stop his car near the milk weed plants
looking, I think, for chrysalis.
The monarchs are back. I saw one taking out the garbage...that was me taking out the garbage and not the butterfly taking out the garbage...
Happy nature watching at your house!

And according to the newspaper in NC, Tawnia has in her area, little black bears. I wonder if they like butterflys? I know they like garbage!!!

Hi MissC, Grandpa wonders if you got your inspiration to draw this cute little rabbit, from the two little rabbits that come to nibble in the garden!

Modern Day Communication.

Woodpecker pecking on a yellow turn left sign. I think it's Morris Code.
There is a pause.
Then a woodpecker replies from a turn right sign a little farther down the winding road.

(I notice there are no old dead hollow trees close by!)

Hi MissC,
Sounds like you are cruising into a fun summer with sailing lessons! Sail On!

I packed away the Barbie dolls things, all except the little black purse that seemed once more to escape! I found it hiding in the green carpet.

Then, looking up at the fireplace mantle, Grandpa and I saw the two little dogs! Thanks so much. We love them.

Someday will these paintings be found on blue cave basement walls by archeologists?

DAWN Of ART: The Chauvet Cave. Rhinocerous


I discover each year
During a week of vacation,
Who you are once more.
And then the week is over! Waaa!

And a snapping turtle

And a snapping turtle wanting to bite at the wheels?

Happy Bales

Happy trails...happy bales.
