    That would have been lovely to still have the animals roam around your neighborhood. I bet that you miss that...I know I would, JA. !

    Darn auto-correct...get's me too!

    It was nice. :)
    When my children were younger, they enjoyed watching the animals around here, especially Judith liked it. :)

    We have to be careful when foxes come too close to us. When they seem too tame or trusting, they're most likely mad.

    Skimonkey, you will be glad to know I heard a chipmunk in our forest yesterday ! !! I haven't seen or heard one for then yrs when that beautiful grey squirrel came. I didn't know until the following yr that all the chipmunks were gone! I LOVED watching them! Ten yrs later, I was so happy to hear that chipmunk I just stopped and listened as long as I could hear it. I hope that virus is gone!!!!:p
    Also, I was amazed at how much your back yard looks like mine! Mine is a bit bigger but virtually the same otherwise. Well, except for the bears and ......such.:D A chipmunk is fun!

    That's interesting you mention the chipmunks, Diane. I was just talking about that the other day on how many chipmunks we've seen this year compared to last year (none). I had no idea that there was a virus that attacked them....I need to check that out. It sounds like it was quite wide spread. If it affected all the way to your region. They are cute little critters aren't they? :)

    They sure are. I just love watching them chasing each other in a spiral up or down around and around the big trunks of the big evergreens here!
    Also, skimonkey, just to let you know how good your instincts are; the cougar in N. America is the deadliest animal in the world! Including lions, tigers and bears! OH NO!! :eek: :p :D
    I sure hope the virus is gone!:)

    I turned off autocorrect, once I realized that fixing its mistakes required more keystrokes than fixing my own.

    On my walk rather than my back yard.image.jpg
    What's that?image.jpg
    This woodchuck was a little lost and trying to get away from the partly flooded area where he usually stays. He turned around and headed back
    to the wooded area of the park.

    I was clearing some brush from a disused corner of my garden and I found a planter that had been completely hidden. In it was this garden ornament placed there by my mother several years before she passed away. Andrew, you might be interested.

    You're right it was a total surprise, I had no idea it was there until 2 days ago.

    That's a great find sci, not least because your mother found a koala as a garden ornament:) Looks in good condition and something I am sure you will treasure. Thanks for sharing a pleasant experience of yours mate.
