Sunday Musings #165

Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can’t eat it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away.

If only!




Sparky 1

I see you!

Sparky 2

Sparky the squirrel is getting very cheeky these days, scampering around my stoep, drinking out of the water bowls and having a little snack while hiding in the safety of the pot plants, next to Mr Bunny!


Hold the Line!

Swallows 1

Look who’s back, sitting on my telephone wires:

The European Swallow or Barn Swallow.

Swallows 2

I seem to remember they picked a cloudy day last time to perch here; mostly our skies our clear blue at this time of year.

I wonder if they are making a long distance telephone call to reserve their accommodation for their return migration?


You can see many more photos of European Swallows in these posts –

Not Yet Departed



Mission Impossible

Squirrel on fence

Sparky the Squirrel 1

Sparky the squirrel, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to check out this fence for spy infiltration, while avoiding detection.

Mission Accepted!

Cue Mission Impossible Music! . . .

Sparky the Squirrel 2

Little Sparky was in stealth mode scampering up and down my side fence, having a grand old time.

With consummate ease he hung suspended upside down, clinging on with his tiny claws.

Sparky the Squirrel 3

Peeping out here and there to check if the coast was clear.

Finally, in ultra stealth mode, he evaded detection completely!

Sparky the Squirrel 4

Mission Accomplished!


Actually, I have no idea what Sparky was up to, but his antics provided ample amusement!


All photos were taken from inside my lounge through the window.
