Uh, Typhoon, what are you doing?

Hu-Dad glanced out the window yesterday and saw Typhoon digging little holes in the yard and sticking his head inside the hole. What possible purpose does that serve?

Unfortunately, Hu-Dad did not really think about our unseasonably warm temperatures this winter. Or our almost total lack of snow. Mother Nature seems to be trying to fool everyone into thinking that spring has already sprung. And with spring comes . . .



That will cure you of asking what we are up to.

Hu-Dad can laugh at us all he wants, but he is silly, too. Just check out his latest story, Shipping Fees, Bright Lights, and Suicidal Rabbits  and how he knows that Amazon has 658,055 listings for flashlights. We are even mentioned in the story.

A Whiff of Wildlife

January 29, 2023

An hour before sunrise. Darkness cloaked my path. Fear bubbled up inside me. A whiff of wildlife alerted me to a heinous stalker in the woods.
