Greetings and salutations everyone; yes, once again, and at last, it is I, Chess the purebred border collie, here to bring you the latest news from our garden, or, in this case, news from the past few days. You may remember me from such posts as “Grapevine Down” and “The Littlest Bunny”, among so many, many others.
Here I am in a characteristic pose. The guy I live with said I was “too close” and that I had touched the lens with my nose. Well, whatever, huh. Anyway, our internet’s been down for several days, and though I didn’t care much, the guy I live with had to learn to live without the internet. If you asked him how he made it through those days, he spent it “reading, and in contemplation”, but in fact he kept moaning and groaning and wondering when the internet would return so he wouldn’t feel “so horribly isolated and alone”. He has me, you know.
The guy I live with said that kangaroos had invaded our garden. I didn’t believe it. But maybe it was true. I know what a Roo is because I ride in one when I have to go to the Bad Place, but this, I guess, was a different kind. And, well, you remember Earl, the squirrel with the notch in his ear? The guy I live with said that Earl got married, and he’s going to be a daddy. The two squirrels found the nesting box my mommy made (for birds, though), back when it snowed, and then they took a bunch of twigs and shredded burlap and made a very cozy nest.
That’s Mrs. Earl there. Yesterday evening she fell asleep while we watched her, and Earl climbed up the grape vine and snuggled into the nest, beside her, though you can’t really see him in this picture.The guy I live with says there are going to be a bunch of baby squirrels pretty soon.
We also have bats. The guy I live with spent some time trying to take pictures of them, but they fly really fast.Eventually he was able to make a movie. It isn’t very long, because, as I said, bats fly fast, and besides, the guy I live with says I was pestering him for attention and he got distracted.
Until next time, then.
