|A PAIR OF CANADA GEESE ON THE PARK'S POND TODAY| I WAS HAPPY I COULD WALK THIS STRETCH OF ROAD AGAIN WITH NO LEG OR HIP PAIN PHEEBS CASTS A BIG MORNING SHADOW
All three of us piled into the Jeep shortly after ten this morning and headed off to the South Huron Veterinary Clinic in Zurich. Pheebs had been shaking her head a lot again and had a swollen ear. Her ears definitely needed to be looked at. She has had problems with her ears for years and this morning she was treated for an Aural Hematoma The Vet said both her ears were infected and will be treated with something called Claro Otic Soin and Prednisone. Pheebs also had her rabies vaccine and nails trimmed. We were all back home again by noon.
THESE FIELDS WILL SOON BE SPROUTING FORTH WITH CROPS WAITING FOR PHEEBS AT THE VET THIS MORNING KELLY DOES A WALKABOUT IN THE LOBBY
Not wanting to waste the sunshine and fresh air I once again busied myself around the yard this afternoon. By all the yardwork I seem to be doing it makes it sound like we have about forty acres here. Nope, just a small corner lot in a Pine forest with a bunch of other folks but we do have a lot of vegetation around our place and that makes for seemingly unending yardwork. Pine trees, cedar trees, oak trees, maple trees, a sunburst locust tree, mulberry trees, and sumac trees, plus an assortment of flowering shrubs, vines, grasses, moss, flowers, and ground covers. Keeping ahead of our growing jungle is quite a task at times. But, it is good to have something to do. Well, most of the time anyway.
AND BY GOLLY HERE COMES OUR PRECIOUS LITTLE GIRL NOW:)))) WE HAVE TRILLIUMS GROWING IN OUR FLOWER BED
|I RAN OUR LAWNMOWER OVER THE BUNNY TRAIL THIS AFTERNOON|
|OUR HAPPY DAFFYS ARE STILL BLOOMING|
|IT WAS NICE TO BE BACK IN OUR PARK'S PINE FOREST AGAIN|THINGS ARE SLOWLY GREENING UP 'OH MY THAT SKY'
|AND YES WE HAVE DANDELIONS FINALLY BLOOMING| THIS SURE LOOKS LIKE THE WORK OF A BEAVER ON A TREE IN THE POND THOSE SURE LOOK LIKE TEETH MARK ON ANOTHER TREE THAT IS ONLY A FEW FEET FROM THE EMPTY GOOSE NEST ACROSS THE POND I SPOTTED THIS FUR BALL SECONDS LATER THAT FUR BALL JUMPED INTO THE POND AND HERE IT IS SWIMMING OUT TO THE MIDDLE OF THE POND ALL THE COMMOTION DIDN'T FLUSTER THESE CANADA GEESE A SHORT DISTANCE AWAY
|FURTHER ALONG THE POND, I SAW THESE TWO PAINTED TURTLES ON THE SHORE SUNNING THEMSELVES|
|WHILE TAKING THIS PHOTO OF A SURFACED TURTLE I HEARD A SPLASH TO MY LEFT|
|THAT SPLASH TURNED OUT TO BE THIS FELLOW|
|I HAVE A FEELING THIS IS A MUSKRAT BUT I'M NOT SURE|
GROANER'S CORNER:(( On the sixth day, God created the platypus. And God said: Let's see the evolutionists try and figure this one out.
What does a plumber say in a library?
What vegetables do plumbers hate? Leeks.
Why was the plumber tired after a day's work?Because the work had been too draining.
When the plumber had a near-death experience, he almost saw his entire life flush before his eyes!
Do muskrats chew trees like that too? The only time beavers lived near me, they sure did it that way (I'm in TX). I wasn't sure it was beaver until I saw a tail...and heard it slap! And then they made a little house. I was thrilled. Poor things. Water never lasts long enough here.ReplyDelete
Al, I'm peeing my undies laughing since I saw the airplane new classifications, love it, hilarious !!! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂Delete

I would say this is a muskrat. When beavers swim the only visible part of them is their head. Good article re the differences. https://a-z-animals.com/blog/muskrat-vs-beaver-6-key-differences-explained/ReplyDelete

A muskrat certainly couldn't have chewed that tree down!ReplyDelete
Great post. I bet the neighbors will be disappointed you're cutting your dance routines!! Beautiful light on the pond, lucky geese. What a great shot of the dive into the water - what timing :-))ReplyDelete
