I woke up this morning to one of my daughters speaking.
"Did you know?.... That there is a color that is the same as our skin!? But it has a weird name. It is 'new-dee'. That's weird."

I discovered the oil filter leaking on my truck today.
Not from the seal, but blowing out from the crimp around the metal body.
Never dun seen that before.

My neighbor watched a black squirrel carry an acorn from our yard to his. It buried the the acorn very carefully in the lawn. A minute later a grey squirrel came over, dug up the acorn and ate it.

I didn't know squirrels had human traits!

The other day three does came up to check out my progress turning beetle killed pinion into firewood. Despite any noise I was making (bow saw, not chain saw), they came within about 50 feet. and stared. "Hmm, I thought, good thing they aren't bucks, given the season and their seeming lack of fear." I went back to work, and about 5 minutes later they came up behind me. Then they circled around, always about 50 feet away, and eventually wandered off. Just browsing I guess.

Came home and saw in the news that deer are coming down with covid. These gals weren't wearing masks, but they didn't look sick, and maintained social distance (evidently 50 feet for their species), so I'm not too worried. :thinking:

Incidentally, the raccoons in our area (one of whom came up to our screened window a few summers ago and asked the cat to let him in so he could try her food) are great at following the mask mandates; just the wrong kind of mask!
