Free and Not So Free
As turtles and, maybe, all creatures should be." - Dr. Seuss
We had a visit from a friendly Box Turtle. Satch was enthralled, to say the least.
And we have a family of four Chipmunks that visit our garden daily. (I call them "monks") They are so tiny and their antics are downright adorable. Yesterday only one of the baby monks showed up so I'm a little worried about the others. I put a small dish of seeds, nuts and berries out for it to nibble on (they ate the giant morel). The wee monk doesn't seem to mind Satch getting nose to nose with it. (as you can see in the above photo) The two of them sit there staring at each other. It reminds me of the time Satch met a penguin.
Satch really enjoyed his trip to the national zoo (though I still have mixed feelings about zoos). He was completely floored by a huge silver back gorilla and a sleeping lioness. He kept saying "WOW" in a breathy astonished kind of way, then blew kisses at them.
That's all for now....Satch and I are heading out to "Story Time" at the local book store.
Robert's family is due to arrive this Friday to join us in celebrating Satchel's 2nd birthday!
