Okay, a lot of you saw the picture I posted of the buzzards (or whatever they were) chowing on the armadillo that someone had run over in front of our house. So we know that they are around here somewhere; I'm going to have to do some reading up and find out more about the little fellers!
And if you read many of my posts you know about my sleep problems and know that my sleep time is usually from about 2 a.m. until 10 a.m. - no matter what I do. (Hey, that's 8 hours - just not normal eight hours!).
This morning at 6:45 Bubba came bounding in the room saying "come look, come look there's an armadillo in the back yard". By the time I got out there he had waddled around the side of the house (the armadillo, not Bubba - although Bubba was following talking to him). Such odd looking guys! We have a lot of ferns growing in one corner of our yard and he headed deep into those.
We still had to let the dogs out for their morning rituals and I was kind of concerned about them chasing after him. Ha. Cavaliers and Shihtzus are not hunting dogs, I assure you. There was no sniffing of an armadillo trail for my girls. They're more concerned with getting their feet wet.
A couple of days ago Bub had let the dogs out for their last trip before going to bed. I was sitting in the office and he came in and asked if I wanted to see the turtle in our pool. We had a great big (really, one of the biggest ones I've seen) box turtle on the top step going down into the pool. Bubba used the net and pulled him out and put him on the other side of the fence, where he could go past the boat and be free.
Don't we have fun? Erin is giving me a good education in box turtles since she had one lay eggs in her front yard, but I need to study the 'dillo's myself.
Next time I'll try to get pictures. Right now I'm without photo software......
