Snow? Yes, we have some. This cemetery is about 1/4 mile from our house, on the same road we live on. One thing different about cemeteries in Maine from what I am used to is the size of the stones. Many such places down south require flat-to-the-ground headstones to make cutting the grass easier. If there are vases on the headstones, you must be able to turn them upside down and slide them down into the ground. When we first moved here, we noticed there were graveyards everywhere. Seriously. Small, large, easy to get to, well kept up and not. They are everywhere. The cemetery used in Stephen King’s movie Pet Cemetery is on our road, too. We are almost famous. Hahaha! The head stones, though, for the most part are tall. In this photo, you can see why. You may not be able to get to your loved one’s resting place, but you may still be able to see it from the roadway. If the snow doesn’t get much deeper. And with that statement in mind, the weather report is predicting up to 21 inches of snow falling over the next two days. Lovely.
And we are just starting to be able to see Doug a little from the front. Sorry for the dirt in the photo. Doug just gets no respect. Hahaha! The snow plows put down dirt on the roads for traction and that dirt goes everywhere. For now I can see the top of Doug’s head. I expect that to disappear in the next couple days.
I don’t think I’ve shown you this guy. The Frankles named this one Dragon! He hangs right next to the front door at eye level. Hahahaha! He’s about 18 inches long. He is kind of a surprise for unexpected callers.
For several days we have heard little scurrying sounds on the front porch when we go outside. A couple days ago we discovered why. This little red squirrel is apparently living in our trash bin for the winter. I’m glad the trash is Mark’s job. Hahahaha! Yesterday, I saw this little guy scoot off the far end of the porch and shoot underneath a huge snow bank. Must have a little area under there where he feels safe.
I was worried about him starving over the winter, then we saw this. This would be a chunk of pork that went out in the trash. So at least we know he won’t starve. And his coat is really fluffed up, so he is probably warm, too. Hope he read the weather report and stays somewhere safe. Tomorrow’s post will be back to art. If we still have internet. <3
