We fell into Fall...and before I even realized it now we're headed straight into winter. Did you know that the forecast for Vilseck on Thursday is SNOW???
Is that crazy?
I find it a tad insane myself.
But, before it gets too far into that snowy white blanket of snow that eventually ends up a pile of brown slush (6 months down the road) ... *GROAN*...
Too many leaf photos? It just brought back so many memories that I had when i was a kid. In fact, I seem to remember that in my late teens I was out there with my sisters playing in the leaves. I was such a nerdy kid. But, its the good kind of nerdy - you know the kind that loves New Kids on the Block and reads late into the night and loved playing Dr. Mario on Nintendo. ***sigh*** Those were the days.
And, before I get too much further down memory lane... I have a friend here who goes on late night walks with her dog, Tyson. Tyson is a much loved animal in our family. In fact, if you happen to mention his name to one nearly 2-year old munchkin you will have the shriek of TysonTysonTyson ringing through your eardrums for the next few hours.
Regardles...Tyson sniffed out a hedgehog...and my fearless friend picked it up and then just on a whim rolled it down a hill. Because you know when hedgehogs get "found" they roll into a ball. Now before you cry Animal Cruelty! - please know that the hill wasn't particularly large and I know for a fact that no harm was done to the hedgehog. In fact, there is now a hedgehog that frequents the front door of my friend's house and we're fairly certain its because he LIKES being rolled down a hill. Otherwise, I can't help but imagine that the poor little creature would learn to stay far away from the light...right?
Well, my friend brought over the hedgehog so I could meet him. Hermie is his name. And yes, apparently my friend is also skilled in the fine art of knowing if a hedgehog has lace on his panties.
Say hello to Hermie...
