Deadly Silence

Hide baby, you’re safe, for now! Picture credit: MWanner   Try to picture this scene. You are strolling along a path in the lovely, tranquil Ocala Forest of Central Florida, walking with your wife/husband and children, when suddenly without warning, you are shot, perhaps killed. There had not been a sound. So, how did this tragedy happen […]

Finally, We Have A Baby!

    We have decided to call her/him Ishi, after the last of the Yahi in California. She/he also appears to be the only survivor. All pictures credit: Walkingfox Because  you asked, here is more about Ishi, last of the Yahi.     We would like to introduce our first Gopher Tortoise birth here. She/he was found […]

Harriet Is Home~

Harriet, our wayward, wandering  Gopher Tortoise Picture credit:  Walkingfox   Yesterday was a very long and  busy day. We made the long trek from the Ocala Forest up to Gainesville, for Breanna’s visit with her Doctor at the UF Vet Hospital. It is one hundred miles, so we left early before 9 AM. It was the last of three […]

Of Bluebirds, Buntings and Blessings~

Picture credit: Walkingfox   You know the old saying,  “when God closes one door,  he opens another?” After the fighting, the endless,  wasted phone calls,  the many  days of ugliness and pain, connected to our Forest and the constant logging trucks full of pine trees going up our road,  I was exhausted, defeated and depressed. It had all been […]

Happy Halloween

      This is the joyful day that Breanna waits for all year-long.   Tonight there will be  the pitter- patter of tiny  feet at our door and Breanna  will,  as she has for the past 2 years,  greet their  ” Trick or Treat “  requests  with the usual loving wet kisses and whole body wiggles of pure joy. We cannot decide who gets more out […]

A Fed Bear Is A Dead Bear

A young Black Bear Picture credit: hans-stieglitz   Once again this morning, I had not intended to write, but once again it was not to be. This state has a pretty poor record, in my eyes, when it comes to “nuisance,  (their word not mine)  anything.” Nearly every day in our local news, there is another […]

We’re Back~

Walkingfox and me at my last two family reunions  in Indiana, 2011 and 2012.   My Dear Followers: We have been away for nearly a week and are glad to finally be back home in our little house here  in the Ocala Forest. We have been in Tampa, at the VA Hospital. The person that I share my life […]

Harriet

Harriet, our Gopher Tortoise   Yesterday afternoon, just as I was turning off my computer, our wayward wanderer finally graced us with her presence, after many months of complete absence. Harriet is our resident Gopher Tortoise and she has become a sweet part of our family here in the Ocala Forest in Florida. It seems  […]

The Visitors

A Beautiful Florida Black Bear Picture credit: Dr. William Weber   For many years people have asked me about my complete dedication and passion for animals. An answer: just now Breanna did her ” OMG bark. ” This is the one reserved for very special occasions. I went to her window to look for the […]
