Muskrat, wha makes your head so slick?

                                         Yesterday was an exciting day. 

 It doesn't take much these days to scrounge up some excitement, does it? 

Once again my dau Shirley and her hubby John came down for our weekly 'social-distancing' picnic. It was Whoppers this time. Our seating arrangement is unique but necessary. Shirley's on one end of the picnic table, me on the other and John's on the tailgate of the truck. 

Anyway, it wasn't long until the geese started up the hill and wandered around until they finally were right at the table. They never begged, was busy eating grass but it was fun having them so close. 

Then Shirley sees a V-wave going across the pond - fast, too fast for a duck (and there was no head sticking up) or a turtle, not curvy enough for a snake. What could it be? She got off some shots hoping to be able to identify it once she could get to her computer. We found out it was a muskrat! 

A BIG one. He swam all  the way across the pond and in a little bit, here he comes back again. And, landed right near the geese nest. 

                                   Muskrat, Muskrat, wha makes your head so slick?
                                        I've been a-livin' in the water so long, it's a
                                                      Wonder I ain't sick,

As we were about to say goodbye I saw movement on the far bank. It was a fox. At that distance it was impossible to get a good shot of him, besides he was moving on! 

                              Our lunch turned into a wild life adventure. 


  1. What a fun lunch to share with your daughter and son-in-law. Wildlife galore. Are you sure those geese weren't hanging around, hoping for a taste of those whoppers? ha!

  2. My goodness! You DID have a wildlife adventure! We see River Otters that look kind of like that here and they are fun to watch! AND a FOX! Oh my! What a nice visit you had. And we're all going to be ready for a Whopper when this is all over! lol Hope you had fries too! Hugs! Stay safe!

  3. How neat to have all those critters at your picnic! Even nicer to be able to see your daughter and son-in-law. We’re a little tired of each other — it would be fun to have some company for a change. Even if we had to stay six feet away!

  4. Your picnic became a zoo adventure! Glad they were able to visit and you could get outside and enjoy eating together while watching the animals.

  5. WOW that was an exciting lunch! Seeing the animals while visiting with your family was a bonus. I know you enjoyed it. Hopefully it won't be long until life can return to somewhat normal, PRAYING that is the case. Have a blessed Sunday dear friend, HUGS!

  6. Picnic with added entertainment. What could be better.

  7. This is so cute and sweet. This is what we are doing also. We are inviting friends over, but they bring their own food and we stay six feet apart around our little camp fire. I am thankful we can at least be together and laugh and stay in touch. I pray not a one of us will get the virus. Kathi

  8. You really had quite a treat, lunch with family and a wildlife show as well, Latane. We haven't yet done any socially distancing get togethers but are thinking of a video happy hour for later this week.

  9. Please share as you read okay you may save a soul today,natural herbs are really great, I was cured from Herpes virus by a doctor called Doctor  Razor West Africa, now I believe that natural herbs and roots has their own way of working, based on medical report I was told that Herpes positive has no cure even when I saw a post about Doctor Razor how he cured many people with his herbal medicine I doubted it at first but just decided to give it a try because I was so desperately trying to get rid of my problems not knowing it was going to be the end of this deadly virus in my body, please if you have anyone with this same virus or diseases like this contact Doctor Razor on Email : I'm a living testimony of his herbal medicine and don't forget to share as you read okay,please save a soul today

  10. I am so glad that i am finally cured of herpes virus 1& 2,i was diagnosed of the virus 4 years ago and ever since i started applying medical treatment and different medical therapies but it didn't work out well for me. Still i needed the virus out of my system,so i went to research on the internet how can herpes be cured using herbs,this was how i c am e across doctor razor herbal medicine and how effective it is,after viewing multiple testimonies regarding this herbal doctor and how they got cured using his herbal medication m, i copied out his details and contacted him and explained everything that was wrong with me to him and he promised to help me. i received a parcel from the UPS courier service sent by herbalist razor.and he instructed me to use the medicine for 18 days and after that in should go for a medical check up and alas the medical scientist (doctors) pronounce me negative, i went back after 2 months and it was still same result. If i can get cured of herpes after applying his herbal medicine you as well can get cured too. just believe. Reach doctor razor on email or Whatsapp him on +2349065420442
