Before we start this post we want to report that companies
have given a new meaning to ‘customer service’. We’ve been
having some issues with our local paper and thought that
department was the one to call to get things resolved. Wrong!
For 23 years we have been getting this paper delivered, on
our front porch, between 4:30 to 6:30 am. We’re early risers
and like to read the morning news in the morning. Yesterday it
didn’t get here until 8:30 am and this morning we’re still
So the wife called the aforementioned ‘customer service’ only
to be told that the paper hasn’t been on the porch because we
have a dog on the porch. News to us as we haven’t had a dog in
over 20 years! When the wife mentioned this fact the talking
head on the other end of the line stated the paper has a new
policy and will not put the paper on the porch anymore for the
carriers safety. This imaginary dog must look mean.
Although we have been happy with the service, until recently,
we are going to cancel our subscription. If we can’t read
yesterday’s news, in today’s paper, before noon, we don’t want
it. We will no longer be getting the newspaper or buying it off
the newsstand. And now, on to the post.
It would seem I have been fixated on pictures of the feral
kittens and haven’t posted any pictures of the other critters
lately. This should fix the problem. First up is a cardinal
trying to keep warm in the breeze.
The bushes held a couple surprises recently and we’ll that one
This little guy also looked cold, but ready for winter.
The sky even got into the act and grabbed our attention.
And a black squirrel got on top of the neighbor’s roof then
couldn’t decide what to do. He finally scampered over the top
and down the other side.
And finally, a bird using our lopsided bird feeder.
That’s a few of the non-feline critters that have crossed our
path in the last few days. Enjoy our Thursday as the weekend
will be here before we know it.
