How much is that doggie in the window...

So the other day we had an interesting experience. I was getting ready for the day and I heard a rustling in the other room. Feeling brave, I went to investigate. I knew Adam was upstairs so there were about a hundred thousand thins my mind was thinking it could be. The room was empty so I went to look out the basement window and to my surprise I found this little fellow...


He's a sweet little prarie dog. He was fairly tame but had fallen down the window well and was stuck. So we made a rescue attempt. Well you can imagine he was fairly frightened. So Adam bravely reached down and pulled out the bucket he was in and he took off like a shot. Poor guy was scared to death. Just because I thought he was so quite and sweet here's another picture...


Ever since this incident I've been singing how much is that doggie in the window....poor Adam must be going nuts. Anyway he was really cute and I miss him.

On another note I was really angrey because worked so hard on my garden and it was being eaten alive. I was so frusterated because we couldn't QUITE afford bug killer, so Adam went online and found a way to kill earwigs...in a soup can put about an inch of oil and then add some soy sauce to attract them. Bury the can up to about a quarter inch from the top and put the excess dirt around the edges so they can get it. Well the first night there was about 70 earwigs in the mixtrue. I couldn't believe it. My garden is doing so much better. Thanks Honey for being so wonderful.
