I'm Not Dead Yet

But the "Pigwhistle"(1) is not so fortunate...

Contrary to the previous post in which I conveyed my wish that the Groundhogs (aka Whistlepigs) would, um, just go away, I am not responsible for this one's demise. He (she?) was found in this condition several days (weeks?) later, alongside our driveway. My husband also denies any involvement. We think one of the dogs may have had a run-in with him (her?) but they deny any involvement also.

Alas, may the Pigwhistle rest in peace.

Regular blogging may resume shortly. I have been buried in deadline-driven work stuff and teenage daughter personal issues (which, good as it might be, will not become blog fodder...sorry) lately. I do apologize to those few of you who return on a faithful basis, for the dearth of posting lately.

(1) "Pigwhistle" has become another Europeanized word in our household, along with the old standbys of "walkside" and "bulblight."

I'll be praying about the daughter issue.

I've been distracted myself, and haven't stopped by in a while. Had I known there was roadkill on display, I'd have been here sooner! ;-)

Hope the family situation is happily resolved by now.
