    Happy Wednesday all! Good news, the fruit on our Persimmon tree is in the final stages of ripening. The fruit is now quickly changing from yellowish to wonderful glossy reddish/orange orbs. And tasty! Last year we had too much rain that caused all the fruit to drop. This year, the deer decided to rip a branch or two off. We are still in a drought, but some fruit has survived.

    We’re planning a short kayaking trip for next werk on the shores of a creek that feeds the Chesapeake Bay. The cool thing is that if we are lucky, we just might find some shark teeth fossils. For some reason this area is full of fossil.

    Heres a pix of one found by my friend earlier this week.

    My dear Bea, I am so sorry to hear that you are not well. I hope your doctor can help you soon. I only can imagine that it is very hard when you cannot breathe as much as needed. All best wishes, electronic hugs and good vibrations I am sending to you.
    Was it coincidence that I thought of you and what song you like ? But no matter, I am happy to make you happy. That`s what counts.
    Get well soon.

    Well as a former Ohio resident I think be a little envornmentally concious is not a bad thing since I do remember the Cuyahoga River catching fire- A RIVER caught fire HMMM. Fortunately in Richmond or Public Works does do a few thing right and a hazardous chemical reclamation site is IT! Even oils and differential fluids

    Very fun day today. I got peed on by Honey the sugar glider and held a Mexican red knee tarantula.

    Here’s a pic of the two Hornbills I was working with, they are surprisingly clean when it comes to their night time/rainy day enclosure you can see here.

    Same here in Cincinnati. I have plans to finish up Ghost's outdoor enclosure this week. At least the humidity is somewhat bearable. Maybe I'll actually get some work done.

    Hot here, but cold temps are soon to come.... sad, but true. I’m now thinking about a new indoor nightbox for our Sully for the Winter. The “outdoor night box” is far too cumbersome to relocate. I’m going to build a new indoor box for the dark gloomy wintry months. I’ll probably re-use the Kane heat mat and thermostat in the new one....maybe get a new radiant heat panel.

    @Ray--Opo and @Pastel Tortie .are so lucky - no freezing temps, no sleet, no snow, no frost. No worries! (Ok, hurricanes)

    The sugar glider (Petaurus breviceps) is a small, omnivorous, arboreal, and nocturnal gliding possum belonging to the marsupial infraclass. The common name refers to its preference for sugary foods like sap and nectar and its ability to glide through the air, much like a flying squirrel.[11] They have very similar habits and appearance to the flying squirrel, despite not being closely related—an example of convergent evolution.[12] The scientific name, Petaurus breviceps, translates from Latin as "short-headed rope-dancer", a reference to their canopyacrobatics.[13]
