Squirrels, Rabbits and Bigfoot – OH MY!

At the Hotel Thompson, we have a lot of woods in the back yard. It’s a good thing for privacy. There’s also a small creek that runs behind the property line. That’s a bad thing for the long slithery things that come out of it wanting to venture into our back yard – shivers. But, there’s other animal life back there. I’ve seen it all from my window in my bedroom.

There’s squirrels that hang out playing tree games jumping around and secretly taking our pictures for their photo albums. Sometimes they come up on the deck asking to borrow a cup of nuts. Personally, I think that Journalist Rocky the Squirrel sends over his family to sponge off of mom and dad. I’m just sayin’ – snort.

There’s also a family of rabbits that play in the woods and come into the back yard. They are fast. Last year, they were all babies and this year they have now grown up into beautiful adults.

Mom throws out bread and seed for them to eat. And, they love the clover in the back yard. There’s lots of that for their little buffet meals.

And let’s talk about frogs. Oh thud – the frogs are so loud at night! You can hear them from the creek croaking at night. It kind of calms you down a bit and it’s memorizing.

Other times you just want to hang out the back door and yell, “I’m fixing frog legs tonight, any takers?” Just piggy joking. We wouldn’t do that – PLOL (Pig Laughing out Loud).

And then, the other night we saw something that was unique and interesting. Mom, the ever ready camera gal, took a picture. Of course it came out blurry. I mean, come on it wouldn’t be a sighting if it wasn’t blurry, right – snort? There it was walking slowly through the back yard. It looked directly at her. I was in my room watching and it scared me so bad. What was it you ask. Are you ready for this? It’s unbelievable!

PIGGY DOWN! I was in shock. It had all of the signs of the legendary Bigfoot. Camera picture blurry, tall, hairy – it was BIGFOOT.

Then, I took another look. It had a slight resemblance to someone that I recognized. Shucks, all that fuss – my bad. It was just my dad walking through the back yard. Darn it – I was that close to being famous. Oh well, close though. I’ll keep looking. ūüôā

Journey with Friends

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship Рall with one single goal in mind Рto live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!


Hey my friends – how was your week? ¬†Have you ever felt like time flies by – literally? ¬†I mean I have great intentions on my to do list but sometimes there just isn’t enough time in the day. ¬†Remember when we were kids and seemed like it took forever to be the end of the day – or for it to be summer – or for Christmas? ¬†Now, you sneeze on January 1st and BOOM – it’s Christmas shopping time. ¬†Shaking my head. ¬†I’m telling you – it’s just not enough time in the day.

I gained a couple of pounds last week on my journey but I’m okay with that. ¬†I”m not going to beat myself up because there is so much going on here. ¬†We still have plans at the end of the month with entertaining and going to the beach and lots of planning is being done. ¬†The kids are being wild – I think all of them know it’s almost summer and they want to play in the wild outdoors – AKA Magical Backyard. ¬†And they will as soon as we somewhat snake proof it. ¬†Shivers to those crawly things.

So my friends – how was your week?
