    You posted badger, badger, badger and mushroom, mushroom. Where’s the snake?

    Thanks for the cute overload as well as the memory. I probably haven’t thought about that animation in more than a decade. We were so easily entertained back then…

    Thanks for asking. Dad came home last week, and things are still a little busy getting him settled back into a routine. I have new rails and railings and other things to help him get around. Hopefully in several weeks he can get rid of the walker and move onto a cane.

    I still have some photos in the camera from the lake at the extended care facility. Amazing how I just can’t find the time to even upload them. I’m starting to get back into a routine as well.

    Very glad to hear your Dad is back home. Hopefully, his recovery will seriously progress now, and you’ll have some time to slow down and relax.

    Now that I think about it, I saw a snake sunning itself on our cellar door in the morning a few weeks back. It scurried away before I could get a picture. It wasn’t the first time I noticed a garter snake use that door for some morning heat.

    Speaking of critter with wonderful vocalizations, badgers aren’t just adorably cute, they also make a bunch of chirps and beeps and whatnot. If you can find a badger’s threat-growl, it’s also pretty impressive! When Mister Badger is not in the mood for it, he has ways of saying so!

    (Apropos animal communication: many people seem to think “animals can’t talk” which is really silly. If they couldn’t, they wouldn’t have complex varieties of vocalizations and we wouldn’t recognize that the sounds the porky was making were sounds of happiness. They lack complex grammars and whatever, but, yeah, human supremacists can go pound sand.)

    Besides: badgers!
