Next Season, On “Meercat Manor”

The Whiskers family, tired of spending cold winters underground, pools their appearance fees from season one and buys a McMansion in foreclosure.  Catch the season opener Thursday at 8 PM, followed by an all-new “Flip This Burrow.”

I just love what they’ve done with the place, Rachel N.

Clover ‘Coon

Here is the back story. Miss. McCoonersons here fell out of a tree. Attempts to return her to Mom were unsuccessful.

Suzannah H. At this age, it’s easier to forgive them for ripping into catfood late at night.

Yee-up, another Memorial Day weekend…

Time to dust off my uniform for the annual veterans’ hop down Main Street, then it’s over to the Loyal Order of Wallabies Hall for some of Ethel Lundegaard’s famous hotdish.  (Ooh, my lumbago’s acting up; maybe I’ll skip the parade…)

Uh, would you kids in the background like to get a room or something?  SHEESH!

Save some room for Eunice S’s sender-inner surprise, gramps!

A friend of Sender-Inner Amy L. reports: “I’ve had another crazy adventure! On the Gold Coast (about 2-3 hours from my town), hundreds of baby flying foxes have been abandoned by their mothers for unknown reasons…”

“There have been a few violent storms and the parents just left the colony, leaving their babies starving to death. So a group of wildlife rehabilitators are rescuing them. They are an endangered species (grey-headed flying foxes).”

P1050228

“…It was quite an experience! We worked for 18 hours two days in a row so I’m tired! But it was all worth it because they are so darn cute (see pictures)!”

Encore: Nice Antennae, Baby.

Spring is here, and our lawn’s got the dandelions to prove it.  Yaaay.
Never mind that, though; this CO Classic is prettier.

We knew they were shellfish junkies, but these otters have a basketball jones, too. (I’ll bet even these guys could beat the Washington Generals.)
