We’ve been in our new place since August of 06 and we’re still seeing new creatures in the area. Today we saw a mottled tree snake so still that he could have been carved from wood. He allowed us to get within a foot or so of him without moving. We also startled a couple of Whitetail deer at the Wildlife Preserve about a mile from our house. It had rained a lot here over the past few days and the area was so flooded that we heard them splashing in the water as they leaped away. Then, when we got home, we found that we had bats sweeping through the air over our house. I always enjoyed watching bats of an evening when I was growing up, but this is the first time I’ve seen them here.
In other news, Stewart Sternberg, that arch villain extraordinaire, the blogosphere’s answer to Dr. Doom, the Metal Man of Mirthful Mayhem, needs your help. He seems to have gotten himself in hot water with the Muscular Dystrophy Association and needs bailing out. Why should you bail out an arch villain you may ask? Well just imagine, where would Austin Powers be without Dr. Evil, Sherlock Holmes without Dr. Moriarty, Sigmund Freud without Dr. Jung, Dudley Do-Right without Snidely Whiplash, Wayne Allen Sallee without Stewart Sternberg?
