Hello everyone on this beautiful sunny Saturday morning! Yes, for many of you it’s not morning, however, it is here and it is a great morning with the sun shining on the trees, the birds singing so loud and clear, the squirrels busy fighting on the deck, and while they are doing there thing the little chipmunks are running away with all the peanuts. By the time the squirrels have finished, so are the peanuts. This happens nearly every day, they just don’t seem to learn. The one squirrel wins. But wins what? She comes back to where the peanuts were and…nothing. So I give Choco one since she is always the winner. Well, sometimes I don’t know since the chase goes so far that neither one comes back for half a day. Oh well.
Muffin had a busy morning too. Playing skiffleball, her favorite game right now. Watching the squirrels fight. Getting more excited watching the chipmunks get all the peanuts. Speaking of chipmunks. Don’t forget, June 23 is Chipmunk Appreciation Day!! So remember to give a peanut to a chipmunk. Don’t have chipmunks where you live? That’s sad. But, you can still have a chipmunk party! However, if you have peanut allergies then don’t use real peanuts at your party. If nothing else, wear something brown that day. Help celebrate these wonderful little creatures!
So who started this ridiculous idea of Chipmunk Appreciation Day? Me. After all, there is a Squirrel Appreciation Day in January. Yes, I know. Chipmunks are part of the squirrel family. But hey, I still think they deserve their own day. So why June 23rd? Simple. That’s my birthday. So it makes it easy to remember. For me at least. And I need easy.
So what does all this have to do with my title today? Nothing. But, I do want to let everyone know that I am going…on vacation. So I will be gone for 10 days. I’m leaving Monday and will be back here on my blog on June 27th. Unless I’m worn out from relaxing. Then it may take another day. Where am I going? Sorry. That’s a secret. I might do some posting while I’m away, but it certainly won’t be regular. Maybe I will post some pics of my tropical paradise location. Without giving it away.
Poor Muffin. She knows something is up. Just doesn’t know what is happening. She is not coming with me. But she will have a nice kitty sitter that she really likes, so that helps. Anyway, I will post a couple more times before I leave. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
