Good morning everyone! The sun is shining, the sky is a brilliant blue, I’m sitting on the deck enjoying this wonderful scene. My early gull has come and gone already and Sir Henry is here for his breakfast. Or maybe I should say, his second breakfast. The birds are certainly alive with songs today as well, they just seem to be singing from every direction. I’m a bit late this morning, almost noon now, but I had to go out and do some grocery shopping this morning and I like to go early before the crowds hit the stores, especially these days. No point taking unnecessary chances. I also noticed lately that more and more people are wearing masks, even though it isn’t mandatory up this way. That’s good, I’m all for wearing masks. We should be helping each other out these days and wearing a mask is one easy way to help others.
Runner, my squirrel is starting to become a pest, much like a male squirrel I had last year that I named LB, short for “little brat”. LB chased all the other squirrels and chipmunks away. The other squirrels were females, so when breeding time came along, there was no mate for LB. Not sure whatever happened to him, but I think he had an encounter with a car. Runner is trying to do the same thing, but he’s also chewing on my hanging bird feeders, which are plastic. He chewed holes in the lids, which is not good now when it rains. However, I did find a way to stop him from doing that anymore. An upside down clay flower pot works good, I doubt he can chew through that. Though maybe I better not speak too soon! Oh well. Today I have a couple of river photos for you to enjoy, one at the top and one below.
I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
