Squirrels, Rabbits and Bigfoot – OH MY!

07 May

At the Hotel Thompson, we have a lot of woods in the backyard. 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 backyard – 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. πŸ™‚

      Oh brother. The frog songs are blessings. We all love to hear them. And sometimes they can be pretty darn loud out in the back. I’m off to send the picture now. Maybe I make LOADS of money to share. XOXO – Bacon

    We have very squatchy woods around us with lots of tasty wildlife: deer, turkey, skunk, raccoon, coyotes, bunnies, lots of raptors, snakes… but I’ve never seen a Squatch. But I know he sees me putting food out for the birds. That would freak me out if I saw him foraging through that!

      Oh my – you have a wild kingdom in your neck of the woods. It would definitely be fun to explore… well except for maybe the raptors and snakes. Shivers. They wouldn’t be welcomed to the party. Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    Too funny. Sometimes in the summer, between the tree frogs and the cicadas, you can almost go deaf sitting outside at our place.

      YES! The concert gets loud at times for sure. We like to sit on the back deck sometimes and listen to it. XOXO – Bacon

    That’s quite the menagerie you got there, Bacon. Dad, of course notwithstanding. πŸ˜‡
