So I noticed this little guy on a piece of paper beside the computer...
I thought he was kind of nasty looking.
Turns out he's REALLY nasty looking!
So I looked up what this little guy is. He's called a "pseudoscorpion" and he's totally harmless. These things can live 3 or 4 years. Anybody want a pet?
Speaking of wildlife, Ruth went for a walk with her dad yesterday and came across a few things.
Porky the porcupine.
What are YOU lookin' at??
A Yellow Lady Slipper which is in the orchid family.
Whoops, this isn't wildlife...it's K.C. the dog!
An pair of osprey has a nest on the train trestle. They've been coming back here every spring as long as I can remember.
And we finally got a pic of more life the other day. Some of you will remember our friends Alfredo and Mary from our visit to Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, Mexico in January. She was pregnant at the time, and had a baby boy on April 11th.
Alfredo Gael, with his aunt Olivia.
We've been keeping busy here, helping out around the house. Ruth's Dad lives here alone in the big old house and he's getting on in life so there's always something that needs doing. I'm in the process of cleaning all the windows, and Ruth's been helping in the garden, and vacuuming and cleaning the floors. No way would I own a house this big! It's too much work!
Time to vote...
