Expanding Our World — Sunday, August 8, 2021

We were coming home, down the long lane to our house, when this little creature starting running across our path.

I haven’t seen one for a long-time.

A wee little muskrat.

How fun, to have this creature expand our world.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. Wonder if it’s Muskrat Susie or Muskrat Sam…
    Eitherway they’re just out doing the jitterbug in Muskrat Land.

    Now I am never gonna get that song out of my head!

      • My mom named him. He was a little thing when I brought him home. When he got bigger, my mom liked him less and less. She would keep his cage on top of the dryer. When she turned the dryer on, she would always neglect to move him. I’d go to his cage to change his water or feed him and he’d be in the front, left corner, on his back, holding onto the cage bars. His tummy and feet were hot from the dryer, poor thing. She wouldn’t let me keep him in my room

        When my dad got home, he would watch TV, with Herman either on his head or in his shirt. Grossed my mom out. LOL!

        After about six months, she made me take him back to my science teacher. ;(
