Good morning to everyone! It is a nice, sunny morning once again and there is a south wind blowing lightly which means warm weather to return today! It’s going all the way up to 73F (23C) today, but tomorrow’s high temp for the day will be a bit cooler. Jasper and the chipmunks are having fun again this morning. Poor Jasper. He has a slight problem. He’s bigger than the chipmunks. Specifically, his back end is quite a bit bigger. So the chipmunks run in and out of all the milk crates quite easily while being chased. Jasper has problems, he doesn’t fit quite so easily. The morning he kind of got stuck on one and dragged it a bit before he broke free. The chipmunk was gone by that time. Naturally.
Actually he was just hiding behind a flower pot until Jasper left. Next time Jasper came back there was 3 chipmunks so the chase was on! But one chipmunk hid behind a flower pot and while Jasper was trying to chase the other 2, he came out, got his peanuts and left. This happened twice. Those chipmunks are starting to cooperate. Or some are just taking advantage of a good situation. While Jasper was chasing a chipmunk he flew off the deck again and one of the blue jays came down, went in the peanut box, grabbed a peanut and flew off just as Jasper came back. That got Jasper so the chase was on, way up the tree. Meanwhile the chipmunks were taking the remainder of the peanuts. Nothing left when Jasper came back so I put some more out. A chipmunk heard that and came up on the deck right away.
Poor Jasper. Instead of taking a peanut he decided to chase the chipmunk. Another chipmunk came, got his peanuts and left, with Jasper right behind him. So another chipmunk came, got his peanuts and left. With Jasper right behind him. The chipmunk made a sharp turn behind a flower pot. So did Jasper, except he turned to soon and went head first into the flower pot. He sat there, shook his head a bit, then came back, got his peanut and left. However, he did get about half of the next batch of peanuts, so he did okay. He may not agree. I hope you enjoy today’s 2 different bright flowers, have a wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
