Another visitor on my front step.

I'm going to have to start looking out the side windows of my front door more often, especially towards the end of the day. Gregg spotted our hungry little chipmunk shortly after he came home tonight. He had been talking on the cell phone with his sister and came and got me straight away when he spotted our little friend here. I raced for the camera and mananged to get off several shots before he hopped down and dissappeared. It was exciting for me to see a chipmunk. The last time was on my vacation last year, which I put in another post not so long ago.

What a cute visitor you have got. The photos are really great. I am always thrilled when I can observe wildlife in the garden and be lucky enough to have the camera handy. Most of the time I haven't. Sigh... Denise thank you for stopping by my SWF.

Well thank you for stopping by my blog today. I am returning the favor. Love the photo of your chipmunk! I watch our squirrels already gathering nuts two at a time. Perhaps I should try to get that photograph!

Aren's chipmunks just the greatest invention! I've loved them since I was little--and that was a l-o-n-g time ago. Thanks for sharing your series.

Hey Denise, I am answering a couple of questions you posted on my blog. I don't remember the name of the band my dad was in. You know I always thought Cliff Richard was gay.............now you're saying he dated a friend of yours????

He's adorable. You have captured him with kindness. Clearly.

Denise said...

Thanks to all of you for visiting and leaving comments. You've all been really sweet to do so and I always end the day with a smile when I read them. I hope you all have a great weekend.

Gill, to answer your question, I have written a reply on your blog explaining that there was a young local tennis star he dated for a while, all this information coming from a friend who knew her and who was part of that local tennis circle herself and which I was never privy to because I was for one, a hopless tennis player and two, tended to glaze over when any kind of ball-playing of any kind of sport was mentioned, even back then - all this occurred in the Torbay area.

Thank you very much and have a pleasant sunday!

He is Sooooooooo cute! I wish I could trade you a few of my squirrels for a pair of chipmunks! I just love chipmunks and only see them when I travel somewhere else.
