"Muskrat Love"

was that a terrible song or what? ( click for lyrics)

well I am trying to make coffee and do a few dishes that my teenagers must have overlooked in their attempts at cleaning the house before their mom gets home from florida.

I am sponging off the counter top next to the stove top that I cleaned last night ( with help from 'the recovering from her head wound' Hannah) and throwing out stuff from the fridge that had gone bad in the last two weeks. I glance out the window and there they are, all decked out in their finest grey and white furs, doing it ( uggh) in my back yard. why me? why right there? why in June?
My back yard looks like a cross of Animal Planet and the Playboy channel, with a little WWF wrestling thrown in. These are young squirrels, just experimenting, clearly too much babies themselves to be properly prepared to be parents so soon.
On a happier note: there are so many baby bunnies this year. I see them all over. I heard the stork brings them, is that true?
well back to the dishes, and "Rodents Gone Wild!"

have a happy hump day!

LOL! One of my favorite things to do is sit on my porch and watch the squirrels and chipmunks play. Between them and the birds it can be quite a show.

hey Tif, I want to clarify thats its "my children's mom" who came home from taking care of her mom in florida. we used to be married - not any longer - but we manage to split a house and parenting duties. ( it took ten years to get to this point of non combativeness)

I laughed out loud about that! :)

Yes, that is a terrible song! The 70's are full of them - I refuse to list any because I do not want them stuck in my head - lol. Here from Michele's.

We have very horney squirrels here too, but for some reason (perhaps our worthless pet who meows loudly) no bunnies this year. And I miss them.

Very Funny. Enjoy the squirrels and hopefully all those bunnies won't eat all your outside plants up.
