My Magical Backyard

11 Jan

Oh friends, I’ve been telling you for the longest time that here is magic in my backyard here at the Hotel Thompson.  Frequently when we are in the backyard, we here grunts, groans and things moving in the woods behind us.. And trust me, there is lots of woods behind us.  And did I mention there is also a creek?  See the makings of a perfect storm.  Lots of woods to play and hide in and a drinking creek.  That means there has to be wild things in the woods.  Right?   I mean you know other than Journalist Rocky the Squirrel, there *has* to be other wildlife in my magical backyard.

Well at the end of December, a friend of mom’s put up a camera.  We did tell our friend that if he caught my Bigfoot or mom/dad dancing naked in the moonlight, he couldn’t share those pictures.  You know for obvious reasons… someone might try to take my Bigfoot.  Snorts with piggy laughter.

The camera was left out during the Christmas holidays.  And guess what – we have pictures of wildlife!  Check out these deers… or were they Santa’s deers just getting a snack while Santa was at the Hotel Thompson.  You decide.

      Trust me, Houdini has barked and I have snorted at them. We can smell them in the woods. Honestly. There has to be so many more interesting things back there. I just know it! XOXO – Bacon

    The kitty boys tell me, “We could take those down!” I mention to them that their eyes are bigger than their stomachs. They retort, “You don’t know out stomachs!” Hee! Hee!

    Those are very interesting photos, even though the Bigfoot ones didn’t turn out.

      I know! Bigfoot is hard to catch at times. Don’t worry though – the cameras will catch him sooner or later. I’m sure of it. There are so many mysterious sounds in the woods. There is no telling what is out there. And I bet your boys and us – we could take them down! XOXO – Bacon

    Wildcats and coyotes have been spotted in the neighborhood where I work, as well a giant birds. Same at home. I’m sure there is more than those deer back there, Bacon. Stay safe.

      Oh my!! I’m trying to stay safe. I just go outside these days with Houdini to do our business. And we are only outside with mom who watches us like a hawk. Smooches – ya’ll be safe too ❤ XOXO – Bacon

    Your yard sounds just like ours. Our neighbor put out a trap cam and caught a family of 5 raccoons in their compost, plus a doe walked right up to the camera and nosed around. Love nature!

      OMP – squeals with excitement! There is no telling what else is back there in my magical backyard. The neighbor has seen slithery things – but I stay far, FAR away from them. XOXO – Bacon
