Random Monday Moments, Ginger, Burger King, Midori Travelers Notebook

I have some random topics today, none of which are a whole post so I'm putting them all together.

1.  Ginger is very upset because she can't go out by herself anymore.

Over the week-end I had my hand on the backdoor, ready to let her out and this was back there:


Now.  I get that the snarling beast appears to be the size of a rice krispy and why I chose to film the Hell Spawn instead of doing a close up, Ugh.  I'm smacking myself over it.  I can only tell you everyone I ask says, fox - When I ask, Is that a coyote or a fox?  

And then I say, but is a fox the size of a small German Shepard?  And they say, uhhhh, let me see that again.  So they look and the second time they aren't so sure.

All I know is that four-footed sasquatchean devil beast was eating it's kill (a squirrel almost the size of Ginger ) leisurely while I filmed him and was in no major rush to move.

When I called the housing association to tell them, Warn all cat owners and parent's of small children! They said, yeah we know, have you the bear yet? So yeah.  Unsettling weekend all around concerning New Jersey wildlife which is apparently robust.


2.  My Midori Traveler's Notebook 

The experiment to see if it's going to work well for me is going really well.

I love the way it looks.

It holds a ton of stuff and since I rarely leave the house I've absconded with all my son's California travel memorabilia to make it look like I do.  It's probably pathetic but it works for me.

I love the photo of Ben and Chelsey sitting on the toilets before they were hauled away.  And yes, he's holding a walking stick and got a Sherlock Holmes pipe.

Did you know I have Barbie checks?   I enjoy them quite a lot but I've had plumbers a little freaked out by them...

The year on one page calendar may just be perfection for me.

I was walking by a Burger King this weekend, man I love the way they smell outside, all beefy and flame broily but then I thought of something and skidded to beefy halt. Just a cotton broiling minute here....  

I don't do fast food all the much but I haven't had a burger there that wasn't MICROWAVED in - decades?  What smell are they blowing out there pipes to get people in because 1) It's working and 2) I'd like to buy some of that smell for perfume and 3) It is not coming from those limp microwave burgers and 4) since when is a nuked burger my way because that is still their slogan.... And FYI BK a nuked anything is not 'my way'... 

Is there some Flame Broiled Incense I know not of?

That is a red fox. And yeah, don't let Ginger out!!! And even if you do--make sure you are right there with a baseball bat or something to scare it off. If it is hungry, it will go after my little buddy. I don't want that happening!!!

While I like wildlife--I don't like that kind of wildlife in MY yard. Or raccoons. Or pterodactyl.

That video was chilling! **shudders** This is why we cats here are indoor-only critters! Well, we don't get foxes here, but we DO have lots of hungry urban coyotes!

Where did you get the cute camera charm on your Midori?
