Beasts And Birds

Marlowe chased a shrew into a hole in the wall that turned out to be a cul-de-sac. When I showed up its front end was in the hole and its rear end was sticking out and Marlowe was couched a few inches away, observing it intently. I persuaded him that this wasn't really all that interesting and shut us both in the house. Next time I looked the shrew had removed itself to a place of safety.

The car alarm went off when the car was in the garage. Nobody was near. I'd have been thoroughly mystified, only this has happened before (last spring to be exact) and we actually saw then how squirrels were using the roof of the car as a stepping stone to get from one end of the garage to the other.

There were gulls in the sky this morning. At least I think they were gulls only I had my reading glasses on so they were a bit blurry. But gulls or not they made me think of the sea- and how I'm not going to be allowed to go there for months...
