Huge Squirrel?

Wow! I went outside to see what all the noise was.
I looked up and thought, wowow thats one big squirrel!
I barked and barked but only branches came down,
so maybe it was a huge beaver instead?

He must have been really hungry cuz he ate the whole tree before he left!

December 8-9, 2009
we got snow. I mean we GOT SNOW....
13" of it. Heavy wet stuff.
Dad shoveled before going to bed so only about 3 inches of it on sidewalk,
I have run down when I went out early in the morning.
But the bushes were kinda covered.
Momma said, "Oh I hate to say its pretty, but it's pretty" and she took pictures.
Only the camera doesn't always see what eyes see. :(
After taking the pictures out front,
She went out back and took pictures.
Then brushed the snow off the feeder and filled it.

It was long before Dad came running thru the room. Already dressed! Said something that I can't repeat and grabbed his coat. Momma soon followed him.

The tree that "was suppose to be taken down this spring" came down.
Right on the new garage and the new truck!

We did go out to play for a little bit, but as you can see,
it was kinda hard to run, walk, or play.
I searched around the yard a little but soon I got carried into the house,
wrapped in a blanket and cuddled on the couch.

as always,

Halloween Party!!

Hey Everybody!
Me and momma went to a party last night!!
It was kinda dark and spooky but it was ok!
Treats and goodies all over!
I got to check out some cool and spooky pumpkins!

My really good friend Rocky showed up too.
hehehehe he was a bat!
And I met the Sheriff.
I was on my best behavior.
He was kinda a big fella.
Not quite as big as I think I am,
but big enough.
Then I raced over to have my fortune told.
She looked in the crystal ball
and found my fortune!
There was lots and lots of doggies there!
I tried to meet them all.
I didn't win best costume.
The reindeer took that prize.
But I did do my tricks really well.
And I read my signs and won first place!!
It was really fun!
Now its Halloween night.
I wonder where we will go Trick or Treating!?!!!
as always!

Costumes...just plain silly...

Hi! October. Does it really have to come every year?

Mom and that camera are bad enough but October gives her an excuse for more of those

silly costumes!!

This one is most appropriate as I do alot of racing.

But isn't horses that have jockeys?

I don't need no rubber man telling me where the race track is....
Then whats my second most favorite thing to do?

catching rats and chipmunks...

But I never said I wanted to be one!!

But maybe they will be fooled and come closer??!!!

last year it was a bumble bee!! sigh
and I was King of the Squirrel Park for a day...

Now these are the costumes I like best LOL Ones I can dress up into anything I can imagine but I never really have to put the silly costume on. Mom makes these on her computer!

Sept #pawpawty

The sept pawpawty's theme was "down on the farm". Even though I knew there was no way I
would get to attend even one minute of the 24 hr Sept pawpawty, I was having fun making my own costumes and some for others before it started.

What could be more "down on the farm than pumpkins?"

But then I decided something a bit more creative was needed:

Lucky for me alot of people "wore" there costumes
a few days early so I could see some of them.
When @SydPie came out with hers, wearing a @GeorgetheDuck costume I just couldn't resist.
And I joined her on the farm with my own GeorgetheDuck costume.

Before long @GeorgetheDuck came out with his own costume,
ahhhh a cute piggy.....

@HenryandFriends decided to be a goat.
He said he didn't mind it except his beard did itch.

@no_crybaby_doGs wanted a cowbell and this little calf was willing to accomodate.
The little sheep came to say hello.......

#pawpawties are actually online fundraiser parties and are a blast. Anipals of every type participate, win prizes, eat, drink and have fun!!!
Some more costumes I spotted early before I left town are:

Hard to believe, if the past calendars hold true, that in less than two weeks from now the last little hummingbird will have drank her fill and headed south for the winter.

Momma is so sad, the males have already left and there is just a handful of females preparing to leave. Its always a long winter waiting for April when they return again.

It seems like just yesterday that it was April 20th and I was watching momma preparing hummingbird feeders for the scouts to find when they come thru. Normally its about the 25th of April when the first one arrives. And this year was no exception. Right on schedule the male hummingbirds arrived to find some yummy sugar water awaiting them.

A few weeks later the females arrived and approved of the feeding and nesting area the males scouted out. They enjoyed the sugar water.

And soon the orioles arrived. The bright orange feathers and beautiful song make them such a joy to have around, even though they only stay a short time. They enjoy the feeders in the spring, they nest and then move on. And this year momma noticed alot of downy woodpeckers discovered the feeders and spent a good share of time enjoying them too.
Soon the bushes/trees were covered with leaves and someone else nested nearby the feeder.
Mr & Mrs Cardinal raised two babies while the hummingbirds sat in the same bush with them and waited their turn on the feeder.
As summer wore on, the hummingbirds all raised their families and spread the word.

Momma put up three more feeders and still momma had to fill them almost every 4 days.

I never could catch one of those silly birds but then momma would have been very unhappy if I did. I spent my time trying to get those pesky chipmunks under the feeders while she filled the feeders.

But here it is already September, and all the boy birds already gone south to scout out new houses and food sources before the girls come. Momma sits for hours (with me in her lap at her computer) watching these little guys outside the window. She says she is sad to see them go. That it means summer is officially over.

Every day now, fewer and fewer hummers come to feed and by the 27 of September should be none.

Mom did say she will leave the feeders up for a bit for the bees, butterflies and chipmunks to finish them off....

So its goodbye little hummingbirds, fly safely south and hurry back north!!

as always!
