I've been watching the chipmunks scurrying about and trying feverishly to get all the food they can to store it for their long nap this Winter. The funniest thing is when they put a big peanut in each cheek and a third in their mouth. Do they ever look silly! I guess it gets the hoarding job done a lot faster though. MOL!
The pond has pretty much been shut down by my dad. All the tropical lilies are now in the pond he sets up in our basement. They can't stay outside here or they would freeze in a hurry. The fish do stay out and so great. So I have them to watch. I have not seen Grumpy Frog or any of his ilk for some time now so I guess they have all burrowed into the ground for the cold weather. I will see them again in a few months.
My dad is always busy raking leaves and using that big machine that makes all the noise to get the leaves cleaned up. Soon we will have only bare trees left.
Well I had better get back to keeping a close eye on that chipmunk. You never know what he might get into and I have to be on guard.
Happy Birthday Scooter!
