Weekend Coffee Share #17-Burrowing In

Coffee’s ready. Please join me and pull up a chair. We have Pete’s French Roast this morning. I am out of half and half so we will need to use milk. If we were having coffee I would tell you I met some of the neighbors this week. One lives next store, a nice lady with two small friendly dogs. Things are opening up here in California but I still don’t see all the neighbors out and about much yet when I take a walk. We found evidence of a new resident in our backyard. I spotted a hole in the ground near the grapefruit tree. It has some sand piled up near the lower edge of it as if something has been digging. I’ve been keeping watch and haven’t seen anything coming out or around there. I think there is a bit more sand pushed out today. I noticed there is slight cave in of the ground above and another small hole near the big one. We are not sure what to do about it yet. We do plan to ask the gardener. I did a bit a research on which creatures make burrows in the sandy soil of the desert. I don’t think it is a tortoise but it could be a rodent. I read snakes do not make burrows but would occupy a vacant one. I don’t want to use poisons because that can hurt birds like The Roadrunner. If he finds out we have a critter in our yard, he may come in and hunt it. Roadrunners will eat things like that.

    Some snakes are good to have… they eat the rodents, or bugs. Not that I would ever be comfy with any nearby. Just realize they’re a part of the wonderful creation we live in.

        Oh, it looked like a snake hole, alright, but probably a garter snake. I take joy in filling them in, or smushing them. I’m very very terrified of snakes. Even tried counseling, and still, I can’t turn a page of Nat. Geographic without squealing in fright and giving it a fling.
