They are here at Pike Lake.
Moles are scurrying about under the snow and Kenya is very interested. She goes out on her lead and just spends her time following her nose. Such a delicacate quivering goes on ... no rowdy excitement ... just intense curiosity ... and I haven't seen her salivate yet.
The bird feder is active ... on around and below ... the red squirrel was there yesterday. Someone was out shooting squirrels the other day ... I guess he figured it was easier than closing in the holes in his house. Honestly!
A deer was killed a few days ago ... either hit by a car or fell off a cliff ... all their trails have been disrupted over there ... anyway, her body was a Kenya magnet and I was forced to hold onto Kenya by the tail ... and exert my dominance ... in order to keep her away from it. She managed one little sniff and a lick of innards ... and then vomited all night ... and that is why she is tied outside these days.
The other three lake does are everywhere ... and can almost not be designated wild any more.
I haven't seen them but apparently there are twenty-some wild turkeys up in the fields of the nearest farmer.
In other news my poor little car may need a major suspension job ... will have to contemplate whether to spend large amounts of money on a car that will be fourteen in the fall ... how much is that in people years? I canceled my snow tire change because we still have lots of snow up here ... and there would be no point in getting the tires changed if I am going to trade in my car soon. I will get the oil changed. I don't want her to suffer in her old age.
Today is teaching day ... so must run ... I have figured out that I clear $5 per hour for teaching ... $6 per hour for catering ... and $8 per hour for dog sitting! Shows clearly what is valued in our society, doesn't it?
