Hey, Look Over There!

While you, my six readers, wait for me to update B&E;, I offer you a worthy distraction: Hedgehogs! And if you want a look back at other hedgehogs, enjoy the hedgehogs of B&E; old, dear readers.

About the Critters, Part II

It’s hard out there for a critter. Once a day I would trek over to the main house to check my email and connect with the outside world a bit. It was baseball playoffs season, so I limited my media intake to baseball stories. One day, while I was sitting at the table in the [...]

About the Critters

My October cabin was located on a Wisconsin farm. On warm and sunny days, the ladybugs, box elder bugs, flies, and hornets took over. I was lucky that it was mostly cool and cloudy then. In fact, there were snow flurries on October 10th. That seems early to me. I often heard other critters at [...]

Thank You for Your Patience

Awwww… Mommy’s a Brush!

Remember the cute, injured hedgehogs? Oh, I bet you do. Well, let me remind you… AAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWW! Wookie! Da itty-bitty hedgie-wedgie got a boo-boo! If you recall, that baby hedgehog broke his little legs falling out of the shrubbery because global warming made it impossible for him to hibernate properly. His little brother got hurt, too. [...]
