Country Critters

The most exciting thing I ever saw in the city was a pair of flying squirrels partying in the trees of my front yard late one snowy evening. That was actually a fairly awesome sight — although MysteryMan kept insisting I was on drugs as I shouted things to him in the phone like “Bats! No… squirrels! Squirrels flying in the trees!”

I just barely kept him from committing me. (No word on whether he’s regretting that now that I’m making him build a house in all of his free time.)

Out here in the country, the wildlife is a bit more diverse… like these two little critters that were hanging out on our garden shed.


I didn’t even know we had tree frogs in Michigan.


And this quizzical mantis.

Just hanging out in the country.

I'm not interested in a mediocre life. I'm here to kick ass or die.
