Chipmunk & Grinnies

Olivia spends all her time

watching the two chipmunks
that hang around on the front stoop...

The play on and under the chair

and there is a huge hosta
just to the right of the photo...
the rustling noises they make
drive her wild

And she is oh-so unhappy
when I shut the door
and turn on the AC

Chester loves the grinnies too!

But he would really rather nap

I never knew chipmunks were
also known as grinnies
until lately...


Nothing much creative going on
around here lately...
the in and out door cleanup
I've just been finishing some UFOs

I bet that keeps them entertained for hours! I had never heard of them being called "grinnies"...too cute!

Too cute Kelley - Olivia and Chester were probably entertained with your weeding too! Never heard of "grinnies" either - that is cute.

Chipmunks/grinnies...rodents all!!! Those cats are too amusing! Love your photos of them.

Congratulations on tackling the UFOs. I didn't know about "grinnies" either, but they drive my Maltese dogs crazy. I found the cutest porcelain chipmunk set on e-bay; really tiny (about the size of a pencil eraser).
