TIME TO PAWS WITH ANNIE
I feel like I live in Wildlife Central! I just love watching the birds, the squirrels of course, & all the wild critters. Uncle Wayne says it’s a “Stockman Thing!” Old Tight Pockets was that way & so are Gram & Uncle Wayne. Yesterday we had a doe deer in the back yard & I got so close that we almost touched noses! Grandpa had pulled down from the pine trees a bunch of those nasty wild cucumber vines. “Princess” thought they tasted might fine! She had at least 10’ of the vines in her mouth & I kept watching her reel them in.
I’ve had a difficult time with squirrel patrol. The bugs have been so bad the last week that Gram keeps putting a towel over my head. It does keep the bugs out of my eyes & ears, but I have to totally rely on my sniffer to know when a squirrel is approaching Gram’s bird feeders!
Then, just this morning our Sand Hill Crane Ma, Pa, & Youngin’ came marching (they really do march!) into our back yard. I couldn’t believe my eyes when they headed right to my wild raspberry patch & started munching away! I had no idea that they hankered for berries! They didn’t stay long & I was happy to share.
I have a SWEET special this week! 10# BAGS OF SHURFINE SUGAR FOR ONLY $3.99 PER BAG!! (LIMIT OF 2 BAGS PLEASE) Maybe you’ll use it to make raspberry jam or to make those little hummers their “special water.” Just tell the cashier what your sweet stuff is for!
