What is going on here????
Considering that our back yard is completely fenced, there has been a surprising amount of uninvited traffic on our deck here at the beach-house-not-on-the-beach.
You remember this guy from last week. . . .
He was only the first one in the parade. Having observed the visitors we have had sashaying by our sunroom door, I can see only one reasonable conclusion: our deck is going to be the scene of a bodacious themed Halloween Party.
Big prizes must be in the wind for the winner of the Come As Your Favorite Comic Strip Character contest because they’re going all out on those outfits.
The guy above, an old Dick Tracy fan, must be working on his B. O. Plenty costume.
Yesterday, Dearly Beloved and Miss Piggy heard someone knocking at the sunroom door, wanting an opinion of that costume.
You can tell what it is, can’t you? Another squirrel in disguise, this one dressed as Beetle Bailey.
Miss Piggy has been fascinated by the visits, waiting and watching at the door to see who will show up next. While she doesn’t want to miss the party, she wants to make it clear that she’s not providing the refreshments.
Note that she’s hiding her treat in her mouth. She’ll carry it for days. NOBODY touches Miss Piggy’s treats.
Today’s deck visitor was downright creepy. I was talking to a friend on the phone and happened to glance out just as another critter was ambling across our deck.
“That is one ugly-assed cat,” I thought to myself.
By the time I figured out that it wasn’t a cat, screamed for Dearly Beloved (always the first step), found my camera, and made the wise decision to keep the screen between the critter and me, this is the best I could do.
If that’s a squirrel trying to dress as POGO the Possum, he’s got a heck of a lot of work to do on that costume.
Miss Piggy’s costume?
All she needs is a pink feather boa. Dead ringer.
