Foxes. Here there every where, there was even one on the Benjamin Franklin parkway Friday night, helping the clean up crews!

I have not personally seen a live one for a few weeks, so I enter verse in honor of all beautiful, chased and misunderstood Foxes!

From the poem
War and Peace By Chang Bloch 1940-2017


"I saw the little foxes on the hillside
With their pointy red ears;
Up close, a fallen of autumn."

Gues.that is why foxes are sly!

Peace all!

 A group of foxes is called a skulk or leash
A male is called a ‘dog fox’ while a female is called a ‘vixen’

Foxes have excellent hearing. Red foxes can reportedly hear a watch ticking 40 yards away!
Their pupils are vertical, similar to a cat, helping them to see well at night

Thank you Trina,

Thank you Joyce,

Joyce, I hope you didn't get flooded. I imagine that you didn't, as you are here this morning.

I hope you both have a good day...

Hugs, Karen...

I completely succeeded in my plans for a chill weekend. I think the high point was watching the Canadian women's hockey team annihilate the Russians 5-0. Louge was fun too, as was ski jumping. Then for some reason we binge watched a series about famous FBI cases. Is it wrong that Mrs. F27 and I were cheering for some of the bad guys?

We managed to get out of the driveway for emergency smoothies and Mexican food. We didn't see any foxes, but there was a greyhound with a sweater and boots. Apparently their fur is too fine for them to go outside in winter without sweaters. #foxwatch2018 #themoreyouknow

I finished my CPAP machine trial and decided to buy one. Whodathunk you could actually sleep better with scuba gear on your face? Like everything else in life, I have a weird type of sleep apnea, so it took a bit of effort to find a setup that worked, but now that I have, I'm totally on #teamscuba.

I want a creek. I don't even have a puddle.

Have a fun day all.

I hope for a successful unload Joyce. I imagine it is huge!!! I am glad you didn't get flooded...

Holding breath...

Passing out... Ha...

F27, I am glad you had a nice weekend. I am glad you found something to help with the sleep apnea. I guess a person could get use to the scuba gear. Well, hopefully...

Have a good day you two.

Hugs, Karen...

Well, finally accomplished .....I've been sitting on pins and needles

My son just called. Printer is unloaded and in the building.
He used a fork lift. Said it took three hours to prepare and five minutes to succeed
Tomorrow the rental truck will be returned.

He didn't call for me to watch because he's not feeling well and didn't want me to get sick, too.

Oh my...

Tried to start the van....no luck. Same problem.
What else can go wrong.
Ready to just give up

Glad you got the printer in Joyce. I hope it preforms well for you. Sorry about the van though. I wonder if it is the fuel pump again??? I hope you get it fixed soon.

Have a wonderful rest of the day... And don't ever give up!!!

The Little Foxes, a play by Lillian Hellman.

Its title comes from Chapter 2, Verse 15 of the Song of Solomon in the King James version of the Bible, which reads, "Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes." Set in a small town in Alabama in 1900, it focuses on the struggle for control of a family business.

When you put a pot of water on, put a wooden spoon over the top of the pot.
If it starts to boil up too high, the spoon will pop the bubbles and keep it from boiling over as quickly, meaning you have more time to get back and turn the heat down.

Blergh ... another weather induced headache. Always happens when we have a big temperature swing - in our case -26C up to +5C in just under a day. For you yanks, that's a difference of about a bazillion Fahrenheit. It's gonna be a codeine sucking day.

Little Boxes by Malvina Reynolds. See what I did there, M09? #boxwatch2018

I've been blessed to have Mrs. F27 doing supper detail since she had to stop working 10 years ago. She cooks much healthier things than I used to, and some of her stuff is really inspired, even if includes way too many vegetables. Last night's dinner was interesting: a naked hamburger patty, some celery sticks, and a little single-serving container of Costco humus.

Individually, each one of those things is okay, but when combined? I lack words.

Just out of curiosity, what's the weirdest meal you've ever eaten?

Hehehe@the Messiah

HA! A Question for me. I cook Italian cuisine. A friend was French, but raised in Brazil. We decided to have a cooking party for about 20. We each did an appetizer, I made homemade pasta with bolognese, he made real Brazilian type paella, and someone else made dessert. We all drank a lot of wine. The paella was with clams, mussels, and baby squid. Seriously, cooked baby squid with tentacles and all about the size of a quarter. Much easier to eat after a few glasses of wine. This would have been almost twenty years ago. Classic Italian and classic Brazillian.

BF cooks dinner most nights for two reasons. One--I am often tutoring during the cooking of dinner hours, and Two-he hates doing dishes. I am mostly okay with his meals--though we eat far later than I would prefer due to his OCD. He can cook.

I like the song--smile.

The usual here today. Be well.

Thanks for sharing F27. Always liked Hendrix... And little boxes was cute...

Myself and Trina... I am not cooking today. Did a venison roast yesterday and will have left overs for supper. Hubby out grocery shopping for me today for tomorrow. Trina, I hope your head pain goes away.

Joyce, I am so happy for you getting your printer installed. And I am glad you didn't have to worry too much about flooding. We aren't far from the river. But we are uphill and we have very sandy soil. So I don't worry too much about flooding as of yet.

The birds are feeding. We got hungry deer coming in at night. I hope to have some alfalfa for them tonight. The poor things are starving this year.

I hope you all have a good day.

Hugs, Karen...

Awww, squid veal! I had little baby octopuses once, they were crunchy and delicious. I then saw a video that illustrated how smart octopuses were, and decided I couldn't eat them anymore. On the other hand, as I was saying to a friend earlier, I don't care how smart squid are - Imana eat 'em indiscriminately because they're way too tasty to spare.

Morning all. Sorry I've been M.I.A. Lot's going on.

The 'strangest' thing I've ever eaten was pate' of wild boar. Not the most pleasant memory for me.

Only 2 more physical therapy visits left and the shoulder is not much better. Hoping to stave off another surgery on it for as long as possible. I've another ganglion cyst on the back of the right wrist that is getting bigger and causing me some issues. This is extremely disheartening to me as I've already had 3 surgeries there and denervectomies that were supposed to prevent new cysts from forming.

I checked on the canna rhizomes yesterday and they are sprouting! I'll have to get the pots ready and pick up more potting soil, maybe today! One of the amaryllis is sending up a new leaf. Hoping the rest will break dormancy soon, too. Supposed to have 40's today and up to 60 tomorrow, but then dipping down into the 20's again! Hope that not too many plants heave out of the ground on me.

News story the other day about a French Bull Dog being picked up by a hungry hawk! The doggie got away but was injured pretty badly by the talons. I'm always nervous for my cats when the hawks are nearby. Guess there are no foxes for them to try to grab!

Keep the prayers coming please! We are trying to get approved to be a 'supervisory household' for a friend in need. I can't go into detail because of confidentiality.

Grandson is preparing to take his first crack at the G.E.D. test. We need a baseline on what he'll need to focus on in order to pass.

The birds are chirping away outside and today I should be able to open up the windows and freshen the house. I scrubbed the kitchen cabinets and the kitchen floor over the past couple of days. Getting a 'jump start' on the spring cleaning.

Interesting on St. Valentine Joyce. I loved the smilers, again... Thank you. I hope you have a good day today. I got another call on the property. Offers are going up. Yay!!!

Pitmom. That is so freaky about the hawk and the French Bulldog. I hope the pup will be okay. We got a family of hawks that have nested back in the woods for years. I can't get back there anymore to see the nest but I think it would still be there. We get ravens that come in too. I always think of them as birds of wisdom.

I hope you both have a good day today.

Hugs, Karen...

Happy Valentines! I finished my classes and am taking the afternoon off. I did get contacted for an interview for another on-line job--teaching adults to prep for the English tests needed to quality for American colleges/jobs.

I might plant my peppers today! It's time, as I consult my little calendar. I have even plotted out when to fertilize plants.

Everyone, make it a good day with little shoulder, head, back, or emotional pain.

Hi Friends...

Just a little 'heads up' that daily Smilers will be AWOL for awhile.
Perhaps someone else can take over?

Mrs. F27: Do you feel like watching anything on TV?

Me: Sure. My headache is almost gone, let's watch something funny.

Mrs: F27: What about Daddy's Home?

Me: Is there anything with less Will Ferrell?

Mrs. F27: There's "Sharknado 5: Global Swarming".

Me: For true? You would watch that with me?

Mrs. F27: Why not? Could be fun.

She managed to last for about 30 minutes, which I think is stellar for someone who doesn't do campy movies. #sharkwatch2018

Sorry to hear you're having problems Joyce, hope things resolve quickly and satisfactorily.

Later skaters.

@Pitmom - wild boar? I could eat that! The most exotic game we get around here is bison - which is pretty good. Pate in any form is delicious!

Hi Joyce,

We understand. I don't know if anyone could do the Smilers as well as you do. You bring life to the forum.

I hope that things work out for you. Keep us posted... Gentle Hugs...

I found a wild boar skull once. It had tusks and teeth.

I hope you all have a good day.

Happy Valentine's Day to all!!!

Hugs, Karen...
