Poor Skamper!

Good morning to all my faithful readers of this rather different blog and now another different page which will be, well, different.  With different things.  Which will be, well, different.  Maybe you will enjoy it.  Maybe not.  But it will be here anyway.  Poor Skamper, one of my chipmunk friends.  He was here the other day for his morning peanuts and he is a bit more nervous than the other chipmunks, possibly because he is the smallest of them all and usually gets chased by all the others, including the squirrels.  Doesn’t help his nerves I’m sure.  Anyway, he had just picked up a peanut when suddenly all the doves decided to take flight.  This is something they do, for no apparent reason, and it is quite noisy.  Poor little critter, he got scared and quite literally ran across the deck and flew off the edge, his little legs flapping in all directions and his peanut flew out of his mouth in a totally different direction.  I have to admit, I laughed uncontrollably.  It just looked so comical.  I’m sure Skamper would not agree with me.  That was a 5 foot fall.  And he lost his peanut.  But he was back after a few minutes to try again, obviously unhurt by the jump.  Poor critter.  Every time I see him go over the edge of the deck, which is his normal way to go, I laugh.  Good thing he doesn’t know that.  Oh well.  Have a great day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

      • The hardest part is getting the camera set up at the right spot so it comes out clear. Sigh. I really need someone else to take the picture. But I can’t find anyone.🤔🙁📷

      • Well, I hope your pain goes away so you can sleep well tonight. I know when I have had head pain that I always had trouble even lying down, usually I had to try sleeping sitting up, which is not easy.😂😄

      • Oh, I sent another email, don’t know if you got it or not, for some reason I had trouble sending the second one, but that problem was with my email. It has happened to me before, then I never know if people get it or not. Sigh. Technology hates me!😂😹💛

      • Strange thing today, I got a new follower, then 1 hour later they unfollowed, then I lost another one, but then I gained another. All within 2 hours! Never had that happen. Maybe it’s my smile!😃😂🤔😲

      • Yes, that has been happening to me for a few days now. And sometimes I can’t even comment on another blog or use the like button. Maybe people are having the same problem on my site. Sigh.😂🙃🙀💛

      • Good morning Ilona!🌞 I know you are not likely awake yet but thought I would say good morning anyway. I hope you were able to sleep well and that the pain is gone now. 😃Muffin says hi as well!😺 I will probably email tomorrow with a question, nothing personal, but best done through email anyway. And after saying I wouldn’t use it often,🙄 I’m terrible, I won’t let it become a habit though, honest.🙂💛🌴And don’t forget your morning coffee but not expresso!☕😂

      • Glad your day is going good, but sad you still have the head pain. Are you eating enough these days? Maybe you need more sleep for a while. My day has started good, haven’t been up very long, about an hour. No bear picture yet but he does keep coming around. I think he scared Muffin again last night.🙀 I need to check the price again for the airfare, I got the wrong price last time.😃🌞💛🌴

  1. Cute story, I am assuming a true one. My Dad brought home a baby squirrel when I was about 10. He had shot the mother then found the babies. He was a hunter and we did eat squirrel so I hope you are not offended. Anyway, we tried to bottle feed the baby but it died because I think it was just too little to take away from its mother. Every squirrel picture I can see that little baby after all these years.
