I am combining three meme's this week because I'm running a bit tight on time. Here's Watery Wednesday, Nature Notes and Camera Critters all rolled into one.
These squirrels were very proud of the fact that Gregg and I voted a little while ago. Can't you just see it in their eyes? Okay, so they were more interested in getting those peanuts out of their shells.
And we were busy giving ourselves a pat on the back for going up to the polls. We saw our neighbor from right across the street. She was volunteering. We had a chat about Halloween. She asked us if we had any kids at our door because only two small groups turned up at hers and that was it. She sounded pretty shocked. Those neighborhood kids must be growing up. We told her that we spent the evening over at son and daughter-in-law's house. We were actually thinking of leaving a big bowl of candy on the doorstep for kids to help themselves, but that is about as far as it got, the thinking stage. I guess it would have all been wasted. Truth be told I didn't want any animals getting into the chocolate because I know it could poison them. This is the first time in many years that we have been away from the house on Halloween. We also saw a friend of ours up there. She was going in as we were coming out. No time to chat this time.
This little guy startled me a bit as he came right up to the window, sat on his haunches and stared at me. I think he was telling me that I really ought to sweep the leaves up off the deck, because it was getting hard for him to find those peanuts. I told him the exercise was good for him.
Well, he had no problem finding the water dish.
Here he is telling me once again that it was about time I swept up all the leaves as they were falling into his water dish. I told him they were to replace those little paper umbrellas one often finds in their drink, be happy!
He did find the last peanut and merrily skipped off into the sunset.
We now have no leaves out there as two very nice guys came by yesterday and today and sealed our deck for us. They even brought their own broom. I will be getting complaints tomorrow as I haven't put any feed or peanuts out while all this was going on, and I want to thank Joe and Jason for the great job they did. To my feathered and furry friends? Normal service will resume tomorrow.
