Something is Missing?

Well, the Blueberry pancakes we had yesterday were so good, Al volunteered to run into town and pick up some more syrup and sausage for breakfast this morning.

I got the pancakes on, and was just ready to take them out of the pan and realized I forgot something.......it was the Blueberries!  There was no way I was having regular pancakes, so we quickly made up a new batch of pancake mix and I put the old ones aside to feed the fox!  Of course that messed up my rhythm and I burned the next few!  We finally did get to eat some unburned Blueberry pancakes, with Blueberries in them...but it was quite a job.

My thumb is feeling better.  We finished mowing the pasture today and I do think it was my grip on the handle of the mower.  I tried to hold on a little differently.  Al is real worried...he's afraid I might have to quit mowing!!

We were riding the golf cart through the newly mowed pasture and we saw a fox resting in the shade.  When he saw us coming, he got up looked at us and just kind of  pranced off like a playful puppy.  He was so cute.  Wish I could have gotten his picture.

We've been putting out scraps in the far part of the pasture.  Someone has been eating it and we were pretty sure it was the fox...and tonight we found out for sure.  We went to put some pork chop scraps and saw two foxes by the food pile!  Maybe we have babies?

Cindy, not to worry about our cats. They are strictly indoor cats.

The foxes live around here and we've seem them for years. We just decided to start putting out scraps and it's pretty far away from the house. We figure what they eat their, they won't have to kill. We will be careful not to make pets out of them or get too close. Thanks for the concern.

Love your story about the second round of blueberry pancakes. I hope you can get pictures of the fox! ONLY if you can do it from far, far away! LOL!
