Strange Little Critter........

Well I have been feeling a little under the weather, been staying really close to the home, in hopes I could start feeling better.

Not that I like snow, or want snow, but thought it would take an interesting shot without going to far beyond the door

Well the Weather Guru's could not get it right so………………..
I posted a shot from my folder!!

      According to a very unreliable source: The US FDA allows certain commercial meat products to contain a certain percentage of Nutria! They say that they are Nutriacious!

      That's actually an alien pretending to be a Nutria! As in ET alien! His name is Frippo from the planet Qarzhgunzikloolilielo Five.
