Minnesota Gopher

Meet Goldie, the Minnesota Gopher. (Actually a 13 lined ground squirrel. Does this get me into the squirrel club?)
YOU DID IT! Awesome! What a fun little catch...he doesn't look like a peanut-eater though...corn kernels maybe? I took another look, and he looks just like the little ground squirrels that ate corn from my hand in one photo! Then again, maybe not the best idea with little kids in the mix! Oh, I want everyone to see you here! Lauren! Kathleen! Susan! Over here!

I saw a gopher (or woodchuck or ground hog) while out for a ride today but her scurried away before I could stop and get my cell phone out to snap a pic.

We don't have squirrel's where I'm at so can I take pictures of rats instead? I'm really interested in joining this famed Squirrel Club, lol.

hee hee - great picture- I've got no chance of getting into the Squirrel Club - there are plenty of squirrels around, but the dogs chase them away before I can get near - maybe if I get a really long telephoto lens.... thank you for your welcome-back comments - I really missed everyone on 365 while I was away.

((Just read all the comments on your squirrel...you are SO in! ;-)

Thanks for your sweet note today about my announcement. What fun that was to share with everyone! Not living close to my daughter, I won't "overdo" the baby photos, but I'm sure I'll have a few commerative pictures over the course of the year! Thanks for letting me share!

Ohhh, *AG*, I'm only just coming to find out what Autumn set in motion on the thread! I'm speechless! I loved it when you posted this picture, but I'm not sure I "got it" that the tag was there for me! Please read the note I left at the end of the thread...I looked for the first time this afternoon after Autumn called me at home. (Had NO idea my daughters were in the mix too! I'm sitting here shaking my head!) You ALL are just the best! Together, you've mead it an exceptionally amazing year, and we're only just 4 months into it!

Thank you, m'friend...
