The Spooky Season begins. And such a beginning! I have lived in this house for the majority of the last 50 years. We have had squirrels and birds in the attic; mice; snakes in the basement; skunks and possums rooting in the yard, and groundhogs living under the shed. I have seen eagles, hawks, herons, gulls, ducks, geese, and various songbirds (including humming birds) flying around. There have always been deer on the golf course, and one year, even a young moose.
This year, there have been two animals spotted in my neighborhood I don’t recall EVER seeing so close to home ever before: chipmunks and racoons. Not to say they haven’t been here; just that I have never, in 50 years, seen them in this city. I tried to get pictures…. a chipmunk outside of the podiatrist’s office last week. Last night, a raccoon climbed the telephone/light pole outside the window by my desk. Neither picture came out. I will try again.
Looks like while we humans are dealing with Covid and elections, Mother Nature may be making a bid to reclaim the entire world.
GO FOR IT, MOMMA!
