"I'll get you, you rascally squirrel!"

Squirrel Tease!

Before the kerfuffle of the clear-cutting on the Mountain I had taken these pictures of a squirrel teasing Claus.  He had Claus captivated for over a half an hour or more!  In each picture I am amazed at the squirrels apparent lack of fear.

The pictures had to be taken through our dinning room window and so are not as clear as I would like, but oh so fun!

Have a fun weekend, Ya’ll!


Photo Friday: find the Claus

Find the kitty!


OK, I sorta tricked you.  Claus is not in this picture.  Although, there is a good-looking leaf pile replica that some of you found right off.  Good eyes, my friends!  :) 

This morning I was looking into the back forty when I noticed Claus was up on the chicken’s run.   You may or may not recall that he has a bum knee, so this was unusual.  Running (well, OK limping actually ;) )  to go get my camera and take a picture of this amazing kitty feat for Bob, I got back and he was gone… 

or was he?

There-he-isFunny Boy!  If you can’t find him in this picture then click to enlarge it.


NOTE:  Sorry for the grainy shots, but they were taken through the dining room window. 

Have a Blessed weekend!

A Saturday Snapshot: find the kitty



*Her name is Miss Kitty and she is one of two kitties we inherited when we bought the Mountain Farmlet.  The kitty boy is named Neville after this fellow!

Neville is even more camera-shy than Miss Kitty, but seems to be well fed.  I will keep trying to get a photo of him and post it if I do.  We are hoping that once we get moved up onto the mountain that they will be less skittish and come around more often.  ;)

PS:  The young man down the road is being paid to keep them fed and watered in our absence, so never fear!  :D
