New Digs for Peabody's Great, Great, Great., Great..... etc
Long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away... oh wait, it only seems that long ago... we had a pet 13-lined ground squirrel. Can you find his offspring in the picture? Let me help you...
"What?" You ask. "It's just a chipmunk." Well, no it's not. These critters are a little bit bigger, have a pattern of, um... 13 lines on their backs, and have skinnier tails. I'll try to get a better picture sometime this summer.
Today's excitement was the enlargement of one of the apartment houses. Not an improvement of our "lawn." But I'm sure Peabody, Jr. Jr. Jr. Jr. is happier. Maggie chased him down this same hole yesterday, and almost caught him!
I'm leaving early tomorrow morning to do a program and then a 45-mile hike. I'm scheduling posts with things around the gardens and trees while I'm gone. See you Thursday night or Friday!
See Rationalization or Reality? and a Flat-top Joke for more about the lawn
