morning observations

OK, so here's another critter story

remember the lawn killing nazi next door -- perhaps you saw the photo of his yard?
I was going out for a bike ride this morning when I noticed a black squirrel in his 'dead' yard having some kind of conniption
I mean, this squirrel was acting like it needed to be institutionalized
it was jumping up in the air (can you imagine a squirrel jumping about a foot off the ground?)
rolling and cavorting
maybe it was a male and had an erection and couldn't figure out what to do with it?
at any rate, there was a point where the poor lil critter attempted to climb a metal lamp post
of course this didn't work -- so that probably added to it's frustration
but by the time I went back in for my camera, the squirrel had vanished
maybe it got called back to the mothership -- I dunno

then a little while later, I saw this whole flock of lil birds (sparrows?) noshing down in the same area
but once again...I was too late with the camera
I wonder where they went -- possibly they all got sick and tumbled into the storm sewer

but the weather here's quite plesant today -- was around 57F when I went out to weed and water this morning

hope you're all going to have (or are having) a super Friday
we're off to a wedding later today

How strange about that squirrel. I wonder what its problem was.

..at first I thought it was just freaking out, then I thought it might have something to do with the weed killing chemicals -- then finally I noticed the full (more or less) moon and rethought the whole thing...I am however, still giving it some consideration -- I'll keep an eye on the local wildlife and let you know :)

Hmm maybe they had eaten some of the grass??? :D

yuppers, that was my first thought -- I know the birds were gobbling down something from the ground

but this neighbor guy keeps getting stranger and stranger -- I asked him about a week ago to stop spritzing whatever it is he uses near my veggie plants and since then he doesn't talk to me...ignores me like I'm not there -- well, fuckem, I say, as long as he doesn't keep poisoning the ground, I don't care if he ever says 'hi' again

I would perhaps go to the city offices and find out if there is an ordinance about what types of vegetation control can be used. The poor animals!

not a bad idea, thanks
but we had 'words' a couple of days ago and he promised not to use his chemicals near my veggies
and then yesterday he ripped out all his dead sod with the intention (I guess) of replacing it with new sod or seed
according to the neighbors, this will be the 4th time he's redone his yard -- WTF you might well ask :)
