Different Things

Poor Skamper!

Good morning everyone!  It is a beautiful day once again.  And here we are with this new page trying to do something which really isn’t working quite the way I thought.  Must be doing something wrong.  Which would be normal for me.  As you know, technology and I do not usually get along too well.  Not sure why.  I do try.  Honest.  Things just don’t always work out the way they should.  Sigh.  I know the problem is me.  Naturally.  Oh well.  Speaking of chipmunks.  Poor Skamper did not have a great morning the other day.  He is a very nervous chipmunk.  Possibly because he is the smallest one and everyone else chases the poor little critter.  So this one morning he had arrived for his peanuts and had just picked up his first one when suddenly the doves took flight for no apparent reason.  That is actually quite normal for them.  But it scared little Skamper and he ran across the deck and literally flew off the edge.  Of course chipmunks are not exactly equipped for flight.  There he was with all four legs flapping wildly in different directions and his peanut flying off in another direction.  I must admit, I laughed uncontrollably for a while, it just looked so comical.  I’m sure Skamper would not agree.  It’s a 5 foot drop off the deck at that spot.  But he came back in a few minutes looking for peanuts, unhurt from his flight.  So I made sure he got a nice big one.  But every time I see him go over the edge of the deck, which is his normal way though he climbs down usually, I begin to laugh all over again.  Can’t help it, it was just so comical.  Oh well.  have a great day and God bless!
