Tuesday’s Tails #8.

Good morning everyone! Wow, it’s another cold morning here with a temperature of only 45F (7C). Yesterday’s high temp was only 54F (12C). That is incredibly cool for this time of year, even for us. But it is supposed to start warming up tomorrow. I hope so. I have a couple nice pictures of a doe and her twin fawns to share today. This is a normal sight around this town. I will be sharing more pics of them in the future. It was so nice and sunny early this morning, now it’s cloudy again. Jasmine and Jasper have been busy out here this morning.

Jasmine giving a nice pose and showing off her beautiful smile.

They showed up about the same time, but Jasmine got to the peanuts first. Jasper kept trying to get a peanut but Jasmine kept saying no to that idea and chased Jasper all around the deck. She did that several times! But Jasper wouldn’t give up and finally managed to get a peanut, so the 2 sat there eating and chipping at each other. Finally, after 7 peanuts, Jasmine left and Jasper took over. While he was eating Pocket came to get some peanuts. I wish I had been outside with my camera because Pocket and Jasper were almost right side by side. Jasper did give a couple of soft chips, which Pocket ignored. Sure would have been a great picture though, but hopefully there will be another opportunity.

The deer family. These deer do not come around here unfortunately.

If it had been a normal morning I would have been sitting out there with my coffee, and camera. Oh well. The on Sunday all five chipmunks were giving Jasmine a hard time. First Pocket came out of one box and Jasmine began the chase. While she went in one box, Skamper came out the box right next to it. She obviously spotted that and came back out and chased Skamper down the steps. When she turned around Pocket was filling up with peanuts. She came running back, Pocket went in a box, followed by Jasmine and Chester came out another box and started filling up with peanuts. Jasmine came back and chased him off the deck and when she came back Coffee was filling up with peanuts.

Fawn being washed by Mama. The fawn is obviously enjoying it, look at that smile.

She actually jumped this time and chased Coffee and Skitter came to take his place. Jasmine came out of the box and stood on her hind legs like she couldn’t believe her eyes. The chase was on and Skamper returned for more, Jasmine chased him, he turned, she slammed into a flower pot. She was on her way back and she spotted Pocket back again. Guess that was too much. She started running in circles then went after Pocket while Coffee took the last two peanuts. I’m sure she will learn one day, you can’t beat the chipmunks. And now, I put the names on pieces of paper, crumpled them into little balls, put them in a small bowl and let Muffin pick the name. And…the name for my new chipmunk is…Scooter! Thank you so much Beverly! I hope everyone has a beautiful day and God bless! (😺It tomorrow!😸)

Steve and Muffin.

  1. Good morning Steve! Wow, I am sorry the weather is so cold there. Hope the warm weather predicted today happens and continues to hold steady with beautiful temperatures so you can enjoy the outside and those wonderful critters, up close. 😁

    Those deer are beautiful and you took great pictures of them to include that smile of enjoyment.
    I believe Jasper has become wise in a number of ways. He is amazing! Hopefully Jasmine will follow his lead. She is tough, but has to learn true strength comes from wisdom. I love her pic as well.

    Yay!!! The adorable new chipmunk has a name….”Hi Scooter, nice to meet you!” It was my pleasure, Steve, thanks so much for including all of us in the naming process. It was a lot of fun! πŸ‘πŸ˜

    Have a wonderful day Steve! πŸ˜β˜•οΈπŸŒž

    • Good evening Beverly, wow I’m late today, been one of those days, having so much trouble with my internet lately it’s hard to get things done. But I’m switching to a new provider on Friday so hopefully things will be better.
      I got quite a few pics of the deer family, some nice ones. I like when the fawns are still so young, they can be quite fun to watch.
      Now I need to get a pic of Scooter, however, he kind of looks like the others, just smaller which won’t show up in a pic. But he’s a bit scared of my camera right now.
      It was a nice day, warmed up a bit today, 68, warmer tomorrow but thunderstorms forecast for all day. So much for my plans! Oh well.
      Have a good night Beverly!πŸ˜€πŸ˜Ίβ˜•β˜•πŸŒžπŸŒ™πŸ“·

      • Good evening Steve. I was wondering. Sorry about the ongoing internet problems. Glad you are getting a new provider, hoping you will see a big improvement.

        I have never been able to get close enough to a fawn to be able to watch it. That must be amazing. I am glad you were able to get quite a few pics.

        It is great you can tell the chipmunks apart even during their scuffles, antics and getting the best of Jasmine. πŸ˜‚ What a gift. Looking forward to seeing a pic of Scooter when he gets more comfortable.

        Oh well, at least you had a dry, nice day today. We need the rain here, but I sure do like being outside and not stuck inside while it rains.

        Thanks Steve, have a good night as well! πŸ˜β˜•οΈβ˜•οΈπŸŒžπŸŒ™πŸ“·

      • I’m sure it will be better than what I have. I just hope nothing stops them from hooking it up on Friday, that’s when my present one gets cut off!
        Right now the tails are the best way to tell them apart, especially when they are really running around! When they sit on me it’s easy, their faces are different, but that’s hard to tell when they move fast!
        I hope the next sunny day to get a pic of Scooter. Yes, fawns are beautiful, and I have had fawns just a day or two old come right up to me when their mother brought them to show me. Yep, the mother actually did that, the fawn was too shy to come but when the mother talked to the fawn it came right over to me. It’s too bad I never had a camera then, I could have had so many good pics of all kinds of deer.
        Thanks Beverly!πŸ˜€πŸ˜ΊπŸŒ™πŸ¦Œ

      • Yes, it has to be better. Reliable internet service is critical in this day and age. I would be out of work if my ISP was not providing good service, not good. I pray there are no delays or major hiccups on Friday.

        Wow, their tails like with squirrels and their faces, up close. That is great! Looking forward to seeing Scooter.

        Wow, that is trust for the mother to bring them to you a day or two old. What a gift! Too bad on the pics, but it is ingrained in your memory, that is so wonderful. You’re welcome Steve! πŸ˜πŸŒ™

    • Hmm, you’re asking someone who has no kids how to name twins? For me I would just give them different names, not something that sounds too much the same.πŸ€”πŸ™„ But that’s just me, I’m weird. Hmm, I think Jason is better than Jaron, but people like odd type names these days, like people who named their son Fido and their daughter Jamboree.πŸ€”πŸ˜³ Another names theirs Flip and Tip.🀯 I’ll say hi to Scooter for you. Have a great Wednesday, I’m off to bed!πŸ˜πŸ˜ΊπŸŒ™πŸ˜΄


      • Wish you Happy Birthday Uncle Steve πŸ˜ΊπŸ’ From Simon & Nisha and from our little cats too πŸ€—πŸ€—. I was simply asking to find a different name 😁 See, that’s what I thought too, Jason was better right ☺️ people choose weird name these days, that’s for sure 😁 Enjoy the peaceful night and wish you a fun filled tomorrow πŸ€—πŸ’
