Good morning everyone! Fortunately it is still morning here. Yes, I’m very late today. It’s almost time for my coffee post, so I will keep this one shorter today. Well, it has been confirmed that both Runner and the new squirrel did not survive crossing the street. That is just such a busy street, especially in summer, it’s one of the main streets coming into town off the highway. And it’s a very narrow, winding street where people like to drive very fast. Squirrels are no match for vehicles. I have lost several over the last 4 years, plus 4 chipmunks. Fortunately none of the present chipmunks need to cross the street. And now Jasper is my lone squirrel. He doesn’t need to cross the street either, so that’s good. He likes being the lone squirrel. He’s small, even for a red squirrel, not much bigger than my two biggest chipmunks, who usually chase Jasper. And Jasper will sometimes kind of chase the chipmunks, but usually he is quite content to sit and eat peanuts while the chipmunks gather around him filling up with peanuts as usual. I would like to get a picture of that, but when I go out Jasper runs off. Sigh. Yet I can go out without my camera and he’s fine. Oh well.
My featured image at the top is the “creeping bellflower”, which personally I think is quite a beautiful flower. My landlord doesn’t agree so they are all gone now.
In the photo above is some geraniums on my deck, bursting with such nice bright color right now. I hope you have a most wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
