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.

    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
