A little Humour "Groundhog Style"

7 posts in this topic

I decided to add a little humour to this scene that I shot yesterday. There were two grounhogs foraging about in the late afternoon sun. I have to assume that they were a couple, one being male and the other female.

I fired off a few frames as they went about their task of munching on some dandelions and other vegetation.

Without being provoked, the one shown here sat up on "her" haunches and let out a chirpy sound of sorts. The other groundhog who I'm calling "Hubert" the little wimpy-hen-pecked male depicted at the bottom.

If there was a caption here here it would go something like this.

First the little female stands on her hind legs searching for the little wimp "Hubert"!

In this next scene, the look on her face says it all when she spots "Hubert" and then bellows out his name, "Huuuuberrrrt"!

...and finally here's little "Hubert" as he thinks to himself, "uh-oh" I've been made! eek

Hey guys, this was solely intended to give you a little chuckle, Lord knows we can all use one now and then! wink

Nice story and photos!

With the grassy/dandelion stains around Huberts mouth, maybe she is yelling at him to use some manners, or to quit making such a "hog" out of himself. gringrin

I noticed them, too, and wondered if they were intoxicating to groundhogs. Could explain the reaction from the Mrs. Very cute, nice photos, too.

Thanks for the chuckle. It's nice to see something a little different, and a little humor never hurts.

BTW, fishinchicks is Carolyn.

Ha! I haven't been on this site since I replied earlier today, so I didn't even catch the mixup. grin

We are busy getting ready for my oldest daughter's graduation open house coming up on Saturday. She actually graduated last Friday, but she wanted to attend most of her friend's receptions, so we are holding off for a week. Time spent on the internet will be short until late Sunday when the relatives all head back home.

    •   You've heard of the Whiskey Rebellion, I assume.   One of the first examples of federalism.   The Washington administration's suppression of the Whiskey Rebellion met with widespread popular approval.[112] The episode demonstrated that the new national government had the willingness and ability to suppress violent resistance to its laws. It was, therefore, viewed by the Washington administration as a success, a view that has generally been endorsed by historians.[113] The Washington administration and its supporters usually did not mention, however, that the whiskey excise remained difficult to collect, and that many westerners continued to refuse to pay the tax.[33] The events contributed to the formation of political parties in the United States, a process already underway.[114] The whiskey tax was repealed after Thomas Jefferson's Republican Party came to power in 1801, which opposed the Federalist Party of Hamilton and Washington.[115]
    •   Danged tootin' it was, Del-o-rama!    Sure, I no longer drink, and they finally change the law....thought it woulda been 20 years ago. That was one of the most asinine ones we've had yet. 
    •   I am concerned about the $$$. Near $20 trillion in debt and rising along with deficits predicted to rise and more and more people becoming dependent on some kind of government assistance makes me so. I'm as fiscal hawkish as you can get because math always wins,eventually, over good intentions and emotionalism. It's one of the main reasons I didn't vote for Trump. I am waiting to see his first budget proposal if he can eventually get around to it between his Tweeting and whining. If he eventually does make real budget cuts and proves me wrong, he'll get my vote in 2020 but time will tell. Both the welfare and warfare state will need slashing   Someone mention further increase in automation. It will be interesting to see how that effects these programs and government spending over time. Taxing robots probably won't work but they will mean fewer workers will be needed, especially low and mid skilled workers, to do the same job.
    • Sweet!  Ill be posting a report from our 3.5 day trip over the weekend.  In the Canada section.    Question for you.....we saw a Cadillac Escalade with tracks and a big walleye decal on it.....was that the Blackwater Cats guys?
    •   So the pee pee video stuff will or won't come out...?
    • Just blows my mind to be honest why we allow such a good state to be so far behind in regards to laws. Why we can't use more than one rod in summer is crazy..
    • Jim, I have an Ion and love it but given the choice today I can understand your hesitation in the decision. I'm not sure I wouldn't lean toward the Fuel and KDrill. Reverse is a must so Strikemaster would be out for sure. Reverse isn't the end all for cleaning slush, I still use a slush copter, but it does allow you to clear the slush on the drill and not have to bring it all up into the house. Either way you'll have a great combination. The Fuel drill is a nice thing to have around, it's a drop dead brute, unlike anything else out there!
