There's a Squatter in our Birdbath!

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! The neighbors are using Glogirly's birdbath again! 

KATIE:  Waffles, it's not polite to watch the neighbors. Especially with binoculars.

WAFFLES:  Yeah, but this time it looks like they're doing more than just drinking out of it.

KATIE:  Well, that's what birds do, Waffles.

WAFFLES:  Uh, Boss? I don't know, but these are pretty funny-looking birds.

Mr. Fox:  Funny-looking? Who are you calling funny-looking? I'll show you funny-looking.

WAFFLES:  Boss! The funny-looking bird-neighbor is staring at me!

KATIE:  Maybe you shouldn't be calling him funny-looking.

A Morning Visit from Mr. (and Mrs.?) Fox
While Katie and Waffles were anxiously awaiting the morning meal service, Glogirly was whipping around the house in her cat pajamas looking for her giant lens to put on her camera. She still had sleep in her eye when she spotted TWO foxes right outside the front of our house.

There are likely many foxes in our canyon, but they are quite elusive and very shy. Glogirly knew better than to try sneaking outside. She took these photos right through the window. She only got off a few shots before she accidentally bumped the window with her lens hood. That was it for the foxes. They took off down our trail and into the forest.

Needless to say, breakfast was LATE.
