Mothers Day and critters

 Cullman,   Alabama

Last Sunday being Mothers Day I received several cards.   Thank you Terri and family,  D'Juana and family and Charlotte and Abby.    And a big thank you to son Lennie who invited us to lunch.  He was the cook.      Enchiladas.

        And from Lennie and Lois

I appreciate and love each of you.    

As far as critters here:     I went to plant some flowers and found this looking back at me.

I have to note that it can be quite noisy around here at night with the many frogs at the pond.   We have not only frogs there but schools of blue gills in varying sizes.   When we toss fish food into the pond for the blue gills we know the catfish will take over.   Some of them are to be getting eating size.

We had a BoondockersWelcome guest here last week for 4 days.   He travels with Duke.   I fell in love with Duke.   

He spent lots of time on the front porch.   Duke is a playful dog and loves chasing balls and frisbees.  Unlike Biscuit who really doesn't play.   Duke wanted to play, Biscuit wanted to sleep.

We have often had trouble with critters (probably Raccoons) getting into dog or duck food.   I keep Biscuits food on the back porch.   The raccoon knows how to open the can.   I have learned to put the handle up tight making it more difficult.   This is what I found this morning.   The can still with the lid on was moved about 2 feet.    

The container for recycling was upturned and the lid off.

And plastic that covers the chair seats was ripped.    Think this critter was angry or just determined for a handout.

Until next time.


  1. Your Mothers Day sounds wonderful! What a beautiful pup you had visit. Racoons can be a pain in the butt.

  2. Glad you Enjoyed your Mothers Day.
    Critters the joy of travelers but the curse of home owners.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
