After reviewing CCTV footage for evidence of the unauthorized visitor, I identified it. This fox followed a path I had shovelled out then turned, bounding along my footpath to avoid walking in the deeper untouched snow. At this point it stopped to scan the area ahead before proceeding.
Since Faye works midnights (boo hiss) starting Sunday night we decided to have a good Valentine’s Day meal today. We killed time at a thrift store before picking up our Valentines’ Day lunch and I found some small treasures. I like the Horatio Hornblower series, and have never read Sinclair Lewis. Both books appear to be first editions. ‘Breakfast in America’ has been on my ‘look for’ list for a while. Cost, all in? $2.54.
For the past three weeks, temperatures have been mostly mildly below freezing to well below. The St. Clair River has largely frozen over so open water is limited. As a result, overwintering waterfowl been compressed into small spaces. I saw in this small open water area Mute Swan, Tundra Swan, Canada Goose, Redhead, Bufflehead, and possibly another species.
