Squirrels, Rabbits and Bigfoot – OH MY!

02 May

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. 🙂

    Bacon, is your Dad actually Bigfoot??? That is one big frog. I bet it makes a deep croak. We have lots of tree frogs that sing at night, and yes, it is mesmerizing.

    So, how come Bigfoot is blurry but everything around him isn’t?

      That’s the mystery of Bigfoot. No one has ever taken a clear picture of him – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    We can do without the slithery things (I mean the snakes, not your dad/Bigfoot–haha!), but the bunnies sure are cute!

      Oh it’s already getting hot here. And I heard mom talk about getting a bigger one for me since Houdini will probably be playing in it as well. Score for us huh? XOXO – Bacon

    You have a fun place to go for piggie walks but watch out for mean old snakes! 😀

      Amen to that Auntie Sharon. We try to get out when it’s cooler and mom can walk us. Houdini has a stroller. I think mom needs to buy me a Radio Flyer wagon so I can sit in it and she can pull me around. XOXO – Bacon
