God's Miracle - Little Rupert!

Just really wanted to share these pictures with you of this tiny deer who was born at a Wildlife hospital after a car killed his mother.

Little Rupert, who is so small he can fit in an adult's hand, was born after vets failed in their battle to save his mother.

At just 6" tall and weighing just over a pound, he is now in an incubator in the intensive care unit at Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Buckinghamshire. He has only recently opened his eyes.

Les Stocker, founder of Tiggywinkles, said, "Rupert's mother had very severe injuries. We brought him out and got him breathing, and then he went into an incubator on oxygen. He is now being fed by a tube."

Rupert pulls a striking pose for the camera.

Staff members are optimistic that Rupert, now 5 days old, will make a full recovery.
"Deer are very, very tricky, but this one has spirit. He's an extremely feisty,
Little guy and quite pushy," Mr. Stocker said.

Asleep: Rupert takes 40 winks.

Who Moved my Cheese?

In this house, something furry and much bigger would get him ... altho if it were up to me, he would have a house and a wheel and a nice fluffy bed :)

More creatures stories ...

Another blog about animals, hope you like the furry creatures, else maybe this is not the blog for you ... but new cooking recipes going up soon - promise!
Oreo the “cat in the bowl” that you have already met ... is the center of all the teasing in my family. With his huge body and little head, his huge eyes, and not being able to stop when running... he doesn't stand a chance. The newest joke is that he has a huge body, a little head with a little brain. (dinos had two brains, one in the head and one in the tail, he seems to be missing the tail one)
With his constant surprised look, please pardon this next expression but Big Dog says, “He looks like someone put a plug up his butt” - just not nice!

Well, I'm back and writing. I need really a need a good way to remember to do my blog. Do you think this would work?

Yesterday, our cat Maestro caught a snake. It's usually lizards and there was once a mole that I had to save.
You can relax on the snake issue tho, no danger. If it had bitten me, it wouldn't have killed me. It's a common Garter snake and in Florida snakes aren't that big of a deal.

But I realised I had seen this snake before... this is now the second time Maestro has caught it. I know it is the same snake as it's tail was just growing back from his last attack and it had also been stuck in our pool. This snake must have a death wish!
This time I thought it's wish had been granted as it wasn't moving. So I poked it. It was still alive. The Cat's Mother and The Princess screamed at the top of their lungs of course. I was trying to come up with a way to move the snake into the bushes when I noticed that it's eye was bleeding.
So this snake has half a tail, has nearly drowned and, is half blind and still lives in our garden!
I found this on Wikipedia:
Animals that eat the common garter snake include large fish(such as Bass and catfish), bullfrogs, snapping turtles, milk snakes, hawks, skunks, foxes and domestic cats.
I don't think the snake's read this else it would pack a bag and slither on out!

God's Cake!

I wrote this a long time ago, in fact a few years ago, and we just found it in one of my notepads. The Cat's Mother (love that) thought I should share it on here - so here it is ...

Early one morning, God woke up to the sound of beautiful music coming from the Angels. Today was God's wedding day and He needed to get ready for this special day. When the wedding was done, everyone went to eat. But God said right when the food was to be eaten, Stop! He looked around the table and said He was going to make Earth.

He took the shining candles to make the sun, and He took the cheese to make the moon. Then He used the cake to make the world and poured the wine to make the seas. He made fish out of fruit and puff pastry for the birds so they flew lightly in the air. God then took the baked bread for the plants, sprinkles for the stars and all the cookies were turned into animals.

Lastly, God carefully picked up the Bride and the Groom statues and made Man and Woman. He called them Adam and Eve.

And it was good!

Stage and Screen

I'm sorry for the wait. I've been chained to the desk doing Summer work, well technically schoolwork since I do it year round ... but it is Summer now. (and its too hot to be out there anyway!)
The other day I was listening to some music channels, and came across one that plays numbers from plays and movies. It was called 'Stage and Screen'. I was listening to this when it played 'Matchmaker', a song from 'Fiddler on the Roof'. I listened to it for a bit and burst out laughing because this was what they were saying in the beginning:
Matchmaker, Matchmaker, Make me a match, Find me a find, Catch me a catch, Night after night in the dark I'm alone So find me match, Of my own.
Then the oldest sister plays a joke on the two younger sisters pretending she's Yenta the matchmaker.
Hodel, oh Hodel, Have I made a match for you! He's handsome, he's young! Alright, he's 62. But he's a nice man, a good catch, true? True.
I promise you'll be happy, And even if you're not, There's more to life than that--- Don't ask me what.
Chava, I found him. Won't you be a lucky bride! He's handsome, he's tall, That is from side to side. But he's a nice man, a good catch, right? Right.
You heard he has a temper. He'll beat you every night, But only when he's sober, So you'll be alright.
Well lets just say... in a very short time, they're 'singing a different tune'.
Dear Yenta, See that he's gentle Remember, You were also a bride. It's not that I'm sentimental
All of them: It's just that I'm terrified!
Well, I then found the 'youtube' version (and now we have found it for your viewing pleasure!) After getting off the floor and I had stopped laughing, I thought about how musicals are like this. A song can show you a change of mood, build up a feeling or take you through a long period of time. Like in the musical Oliver, my sister was just in this. The character Fagin is going to leave the gang, but in the build up of the song 'Reviewing my Situation', he has the audience spellbound and hanging on his every word - until 'finally' he leaves. I know this one well, it got stuck in my head for 5 days.

When Nancy sings, you can feel her pain and her love for a man that she knows will harm her. 'Nancy Drew' my bff, played Bets, and turned into this whole other person on stage. Another one my sister was in, Beauty and the Beast, has just one song taking you through several months in time and when the Beast stood in his lair, you forgot that you just saw him having dinner in the hallway as he was now 'The Beast' asking the world to be done with him.
My favorite big play so far has been 'Wicked', it has been played in the car so many times, I am suprised it hasn't 'melted'!

Well, life's like that I guess. You change your mind from chorus to chorus, the tune can go fast and the tune can go slow. It can take time to find the right beat. (I didn't get the right song to carry me thro school work today! Wonder what tomorrow will bring?)
