The Legal Alien and the Five Woodland Critters
Many believe that living the American Dream is coming to the USA and making something of one’s life…
I have a different opinion- Living in America is a little bit like living in a Fairytale…
Let me explain.
This has absolutely nothing to do with people… And everything to do with nature.
In South Africa, monkeys roam around and “pay visits” to one’s house- sometimes sneaking in an open window and stealing food- and often, if you try to scare them off– they end up pooping on the kitchen counters.
Now compare that “wonderful” image with what one gets to experience here in the USA.
At home, we often walk out in the mornings to see bunnies scattering in every direction. We actually have two living in our backyard.
Squirrels will often “visit” too…running up and down our trees.
At night, fire-flies light up our front-yard- they’re beautiful!!
And then… At the house where I work- a deer sighting is not a rare occurrence! Just yesterday we watched as a family of four deer ate wild apples off a tree in the backyard- two of the four were tiny baby deer!!
Another regular visitor at the residence where I work is a little red fox- although I haven’t seen him this summer.
Sometimes I feel like breaking into song like a Disney princess… And can imagine all the little “woodland” critters gathering around to enjoy my…. Okay- let’s be real, the “woodland” creatures would run for their lives if I started singing… But you get the idea…
The domestic wildlife in this area is awesome!! And I still appreciate it with child-like enthusiasm and awe!! 🙂
