I Told You So.


" I told you that fall was just around the corner.  Cold weather is breathing down our necks!  But, oh no, you have to spend time playing with that stupid muskrat, collecting shells on the shore, and pretending that you can out scream that fat old owl at night!  Now look at our situation!  We have no fruits or nuts tucked away, you missed the harvest on the wild paw paw tree, and perhaps worst of all, you believed that Tabor women when she said that was not a fig tree in her front yard...just a tree with big leaves.  What was she tucking in her apron then?  I ask you!"



"Hurry up.  We don't have all summer.  The leaves are falling."


(I will be traveling in the week or so ahead...please keep an eye on these little thieves!)

I've spent much of my summer with a few little bandits.. one who loves to fall asleep in my arms.. sigh. Enjoy your time away. We'll look after the wildlife while you're gone. :)

Great - your post reminded me of Spike Mulligan's self-chose epitaph: "I told you I wasn't well!"

Oh my goodness, Tabor, I don't think I realized you had another blog...and I'm thrilled to tiny bits because there are critter pictures! Wheeeeee!

I came here via Hilary's, and it took me a moment to regist, "Wait, that isn't the title of the blog I check..." and I'm having the best time with tiny turtles, raccoons and long legged birds." It's like Oz on a Friday afternoon! Thank you so much for that!

Ah yes, they're a nuisance, but they're cute :)
We had a couple eating seed under the birdfeeders each night during the summer. One of them learned to drain the hummingbird feeder each night without ripping it apart...as in a previous year. I had to bring it and the suet feeders in each night.
Enjoy your travels!
