Lunedi Lunacy

At the suggestion of our friend Cathy we've recently signed up for a programme that supports youth employment and local agriculture:   Farm Works,  an enterprise sponsored by Operation Come Home.  We have bought a half-share in a farm plot and will receive produce from the plot over the summer and into the autumn months.  It seems like a win-win set up to me and I know Cathy received more than she could use from her plot last year.

That and the appearance of our local groundhog - Spring has finally sprung! - made this little guy's adventure seem appropriate as a bit of lunacy for a Monday in April.

Hopefully our young farmers won't run into any Geomyidae Thomomys and our resident little guy and his family won't meet with misadventure when searching for food.

About an hour south of Edmonton here in Alberta we have the Torrington Gopher Museum. It's full of stuffed gophers arranged in little vignettes. Very amusing, I've been to it a couple of times. The museum is on PETA's hit list, of course.

Matilda puzzles me; some times she seems to be 'Maud" and often she is listed as "no monarch really"
so I don't know who she really is.
