George & Weezie Gopher – Day 162

Day 162
Listening to:  I’m Alright
Thought for the day: I think I am experiencing some kind of survivor’s guilt over the Hurricane Sandy stuff.  I need to turn the TV off.

 

Have you ever given thought to the fact that most creatures that live among us are descendants of the creatures that lived among the early settlers? Today’s photo is of a pair of gophers who have taken up residence in a part of my employer’s property that is now abandoned.  The area use to team with manufacturing activity so much so that no creature would have even ventured near it.  Now?  Things are different.  It’s a virtual ghost town.  I see the gophers frequently during my lunch-time.  I have started calling them George and Weezie since they probably think they are moving on up………….  I wonder though do they ever say to one another, if only Great Great Great Great Great Great Great Great Great Great Great Great Grandpa Gopher could see we’ve reclaimed the land. He’d weep.
