TuESDaY EVeniNG CriTTer...

Today was one of those super hot Summer days here in NC. I think it was 90 degrees when I got up this morning. I spent the day working on orders and ran to the post office late this afternoon. It was TOO hot to even stop at Walmart on the way home.
My sister called to tell me about her shopping day....she went to Apex to check out Pam's store. Wish I couldv'e gone with her. I'm sure there's lots and lots to see at the Rusty Bucket since I was there. But, anyway...when I was on the phone, I happen to glance out the window and see this!! I ran to get my camera as I think he was posing for me!!

I don't have a clue what it is, but it seemed to enjoy some of the "Greens" outside my front door.

Closer picture......

He stayed for several minutes just lookin around. I tried to show him to Ruffie, but the cat never showed any interest at all. Believe me, this is not the norm for my neighborhood! I WILL pay close attention next time I let Ruffie go outside. This critter had some REALLY nice claws.

Well, I think the thunderstorms are moving in, so until next time.

Hugs and Blessings,

What a little critter! Wonder what it is - it almost looks like a little prairie dog! Watch out, Dawn

Looks like a ground hog to me:)

I would love to see how Ruffie would react to something like that!

It is hard to see but I also think it is a ground hog too. I hope he doesn't eat your greens all up!

hugs, Linda

A groundhog was my guess as well. Keep an eye one him.

Is that a ground hog?
We had one living in our old barn and the dog actually caught one of its babies and brought it to the door..
you should have seen me trying to give it back lol!
Mamma took it but was verrrry unhappy with me!
