THE SUPERVISOR…

5024 My helper (1 of 1)

SOME OF YOU HAVE MET OLIVER BEFORE…HE’S ON LOAN TO US FROM THE “MUSEUM OF THE SON WHO HAD TO MOVE AWAY FOR A JOB”.

I THINK THAT HE MAY REMAIN ON DISPLAY HERE…BUT, WITH SON’S BLESSING OF COURSE.

THE MOMENT THAT I GO TO MY DESK TO BEGIN WORKING ON MY “SUPER SECRET PROJECT”, OLIVER JUMPS UP ON SAID DESK AND FINDS THE MOST INCONVENIENT SPOT POSSIBLE TO STRETCH OUT ON. 

HE NEEDS TO BE ABLE TO TOUCH AND FEEL EVERYTHING THAT I PICK UP.

HAVING COMPLETED HIS QUALITY CONTROL CHECK, HE LAYS ON TOP OF THE SMALL ITEMS THAT I NEED TO WORK WITH…I’VE TOLD HIM REPEATEDLY THAT THEY DON’T NEED TO BE WARMED UP TO BE USED.

I ASKED IF, AS MY SUPERVISOR, HE COULD COMPLETE MY QUARTERLY JOB REVIEW FORM.

HE TOOK THE FORM BACK TO HIS OFFICE AND AN HOUR AND A HALF LATER, HE RETURNED IT TO ME.

NOW I’M AFRAID THAT I’M GOING TO BE FIRED…

HE HAD WRITTEN ONLY THREE WORDS ON THE FORM…”YOU’RE LAZY, ZANNYRO.”

NO ONE CAN JUDGE YOU LIKE A CAT.

 

DON’T MOVE AND SHE WON’T SEE US…

DO YOU SEE THE TWO “STATUES” ON THE FAR RIGHT? I WAS FEEDING THE BIRDS THIS MORNING AND WAY DOWN BY THE RIVER I SAW THESE TWO DEER WATCHING ME.

THERE WAS NO WAY THAT I COULD GET CLOSER TO THEM WITHOUT THEM “HIGH-TAILING” IT OUT OF THERE, (When deer get alarmed they hold their white tails straight up and run),SO I’VE CROPPED THE IMAGE  A FEW TIMES SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THEM A LITTLE BETTER.

NOW THIS IS NOT A GOOD IMAGE, BUT I WANTED YOU TO SEE SOMETHING THAT HELPED ME TO IDENTIFY ONE OF THE DEER.

ABOUT TWO SECONDS AFTER I TOOK THE SHOT, THE DEER ON THE LEFT DID RUN OFF INTO THE WOODS. THE DEER ON THE RIGHT STOOD AND CONTINUED TO WATCH ME.

WHEN I CROPPED IN THIS SEVERELY ON THE IMAGE, I KNEW WHY SHE HADN’T RUN.

SHE’S “DASH”, A DEER THAT’S BEEN COMING HERE SINCE THE DAYS OF “MAMA”, THE THREE LEGGED DEER. I CONSIDER HER MAMA’S SISTER AND I WOULD GUESS THAT DASH IS AT LEAST FIVE YEARS OLD NOW. 

DASH APPARENTLY FEELS SAFE AROUND ME AND DOESN’T PANIC.  HOW DO I KNOW IT’S DASH…BY ZOOMING IN, YOU CAN SEE THE WHITE “DASH” BETWEEN HER EYES…THAT’S MY GIRL, DASH.

I THOUGHT THIS WAS THE DEER PATH?…

I’M NOT SURE WHAT’S GOING ON HERE…THIS IS THE OPENING THAT THE DEER USE TO CROSS INTO OUR NEIGHBORS PROPERTY…DO THESE LOOK LIKE DEER TO YOU?  AMAZING..WILD TURKEYS!!!!!!!!!!

COUNTED EIGHT! POSSIBLY NINE!  LOOK AT THOSE BEAUTIFUL MARKINGS…

A WEATHER COMMENT…

IT’S NOW AFTER FOUR AM AND THE THREAT FOR TORNADOES HAS PASSED AND THE WIND IS FINALLY DYING DOWN. TIME TO HEAD FOR BED, BUT…I’M HOPING THAT NONE OF YOU OUT THERE HAVE BEEN IN THE PATH OF THE TORNADOES THAT DID SO MUCH DAMAGE AND DESTRUCTION…STAY SAFE MY FRIENDS…IT MAY BE BAD FOR ALL OF YOU SOUTH AND EAST TODAY.

THERE IS SUCH A THING AS A FREE LUNCH…

WELL, THE DEER HAVE BECOME REGULAR VISITORS LATELY. I’VE IDENTIFIED “DASH”, A DOE WHO’S BEEN COMING HERE FOR AT LEAST FIVE YEARS AND SHE HAS A DOE WITH HER. MORE THAN LIKELY THIS IS HER DAUGHTER FROM LAST YEAR.

I SEE SIX TO EIGHT DEER A NIGHT, IF THEY DON’T SEE CORN ON THE GROUND THEY STAND AND STARE INTO THE WINDOWS.

I THOUGHT DINNER WAS ESPECIALLY DELIGHTFUL TONIGHT. LET'S HEAD ON OVER TO THE SMITH'S HOUSE, I SAW THEM EATING PIE ON THEIR PORCH.

I THOUGHT DINNER WAS ESPECIALLY DELIGHTFUL TONIGHT. LET’S HEAD ON OVER TO THE NEIGHBORS HOUSE, I CAN SEE THEM EATING PIE ON THEIR PORCH.

I SEE HER…SHE'S IN THERE!

I WISH I HAD BIGGER TEETH…

3134 Looky, looky,looky…I found an apple (1 of 1)

“OH LOOKY, LOOKY I FOUND SOMETHING THAT SMELLS LIKE FOOD! I CAN SMELL THE YUMMY STUFF INSIDE.”

How do I open this? (1 of 1)

“HOW DO I OPEN THIS THING? I’VE BEEN TRYING TO GET THIS FIGURED OUT FOR AN HOUR. THERE’S NO ZIPPER, NO KEY OR LOCK, NO PULL TAB. “

I give up! (1 of 1)

” I GIVE UP…I CAN’T WASTE MY TIME ON THIS ANYMORE, I’M GOING TO GO TAKE A NAP, A SHOWER AND THEN WATCH A MOVIE. MAYBE WHEN I COME BACK, I’LL ASK A DEER TO STOMP ON THIS THING AND GET IT OPEN FOR ME.”
