Perhaps. They sure do have personality at least. This one is really shy and no problem. They have lived under the barn in winter for over a hundred years. Two generations ago one was super aggressive so he / she had to leave the place to the next generation a few years early...I wonder if badgers get used to the same person being around them
Well, I hope my badgers are sweet and like to weed the garden. So far they are doing an excellent job of walking all over my plants every night.Perhaps. They sure do have personality at least.

Thank you Great Kate @Tekate! Yes doorman is doing well thank goodness. But very unhappy sad news. My friend C lost her mom to Covid just yesterday I am so so sad for her and her family. Her dad is still in the hospital. They were both admitted a few weeks ago. Mom was worse than dad and she was sent to hospital first but then the dad was admitted. Both are too old for intubation (80) and then the mom seemed to turn a corner but she died yesterday. There are no words.Hi Everyone! how's everyone today? I've been in a real funk about this whole Covid mess but today I feel better, it's still so mind boggling to me.
Glad to read that yesterday morning the dear doorman is doing better @missy , as my Dad was blue collar and I remember how people treated him in his uniform at Grand Central when I was a teenager I know some people can be so damn haughty ( don't mean you guys at ALL!).. our worth in life is based on what we give back. not money. that said. Glad that things were looking up yesterday, I'm going to continue to read before posting this so I hope today is good too at this point. Jeez louise Missy that brownstone looks tons like Danny's place except the window in his brownstone is bigger but so similar but then again all the houses on his street look a lot alike, interspersed with apt buildings, so pretty Brooklyn is! Actually the picture with the beautiful tree looks exactly like his house with the windows jutting out of each floor, such beautiful Queen Anne architecture.. and sorry Greg has been moved to June but I am praying (and I try to NEVER pray for anything unless it's very important) I so pray that he does not have to go to the ER, before the zap. OH NO, I am soo sorry to read about your friends friend's deaths and spouse.. our first line responders our physicians gosh I am so so sorry Missy.. it hurts all of us. My SIL retired as a pediatric cardiologist last year at UVA and she volunteered to go in and help, but she is 64 now and they told her NO because she's at the age of getting sick, she said the hospital doesn't have a lot of action right now anyway and her daughter is a nurse at the hospital and her hours are normal, the college is closed, she said to me that she will again volunteer to read and diagnose for clinicians.. hopefully it won't get that bad in Charlottesville VA.. again so sorry about these deaths. so painful especially for the families of course and friends.. I feel it too. sending you and Greg and kids so much Kate love you will be blown over Missy girl. my heart to yours. xo
GM @AV_ it is pretty grim here re physician deaths and nurse deaths and front liners deaths in general. Few things make sense these days that is so true. I am praying for the safety and health of all and nothing else much matters to me right now. Not work, not finances nothing. I just hope and pray all our loved ones and everyone helping and caring for others remain safe. XOXO.ctd.
@missy Your very bad news of physicians falling caught me off guard; I am hearing of many everywhere spending many weeks away from homes they cannot return to, ill, dying on the job ,( - if not them, who can be protected at all. ,((( Few things make less sense & there is so much nonsense to choose from!
today better be over.
GM Daisy. I am glad the Easter bunny can make deliveries still. And that the kiddies can enjoy the eggs. May your markets remain well stocked and may it be affordable. Hugs and be well.I completly forgot about Easter being this week
they are going to let supermarkets open on Easter sunday to speed the week out - all these years latter people still shop like shops are still closed for days over Easter and theu do not want that this year
But still closed on Good Friday as usual because supermarkets need a rest and also they can restock and tidy all day without interruption
On the news last night so cute - Easter bunny has been given special permission to still deliver - but only him, so grandma and grandad etc will have to wait till the lockdown is over to give the kiddies the eggs
anyeay Easter !
the trees still have all their leaves on
GM dear Scandi. How are you all doing? Again thank you for all your warm wishes and right back at ya. Hugs.
Oh Missy today has been the hardest dayGM Daisy. I am glad the Easter bunny can make deliveries still. And that the kiddies can enjoy the eggs. May your markets remain well stocked and may it be affordable. Hugs and be well.

@Jimmianne stay well and stay safe. How is Mr Hedgehog doing? I am glad you are near your dear DD. Hugs.
@Mamabean how is everything? David? Your DH? Your mom? You? Ashlee? LOL I need you to share your bling to keep good cheer here. She will brighten the day and any brightness is welcome. Hugs.
@Austina did you get your basket delivery? Fruit? Meat? Hope it is a good one and that you and Colin are doing well and feeling good. Hugs.
We had a nice walk yesterday and I got to enjoy catching up with friends via phone and that is all. I managed to sprain my ankle doing nothing so we shall see what happens there. OP makes it worrisome but truly right now just one day at a time. Stay well lovely ladies and I hope everyone is maintaining good or decent cheer at least. We will get through this challenging time. XOXO.
In the interest of good cheer here are some of my photos from yesterday. Enjoy.
Streets manageable re people and I was wearing my newest mask by Greg. From a polypropylene material that we shared with a few neighbors too. Supposed to be protective against small particles. Fit still needs some work but it was pretty good and not uncomfortable. Well not as comfortable as nothing lol but you get the idea.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
Me too! It is stupefying how many people are so selfish and don't care about others as to not social distance. I am sorry you had a hard day today and hoping the days get easier. We have to go shopping soon too but I am concerned to go to the stores because we are reaching our peak and as you write people aren't respecting social distancing.Oh Missy today has been the hardest day
i desperatly had to go get some groceries - we were out of milk and coffee and hot sauce and flour and bread
I made a list and i got flour !
but people who don't do social distancing stress me out
with a lot more people (like us) shopping at the smaller local supermarket for less risk than going to the bigger places in town - and its always such a busy wee place anyeay - but there was not a single easter egg left, i guess parents have been stocking up for the Easter bunny - the lolly (candy) stand was bear as was every peg that had chocolate blocks on promotion at a reasonably price
And at the check out not a single chocolate bar under $2
Last week that shop had so much Easter stock
I brought a jar of budget store brand chocolate hazelnut spread to make 3 ingredient chocolate brownies ...im not a big brownie fan
i got a box of skippy cornflakes for $3 and ill make Gary chocolate Afghan biscuits - but it will have to be without the walnut, and he can eat the rest of the cornflakes for breakfast now we have milk
I know a stupid Easter egg is the least thing to be upset about right now but its just the straw to break the camel's back
i hope you and Greig are both well and all you other lovelly NIRDI ladies are doing ok too
Thank you MissyMe too! It is stupefying how many people are so selfish and don't care about others as to not social distance. I am sorry you had a hard day today and hoping the days get easier. We have to go shopping soon too but I am concerned to go to the stores because we are reaching our peak and as you write people aren't respecting social distancing.
I am glad you got some staples and food. And flour! Woohoo! Little things worth celebrating dear Daisy.
And Easter is not a stupid thing to be upset about. I get it. It is the last drop of water in an overflowing bucket. Big hugs and lots of good wishes. We will persevere. (((HUGS))).
Diamond ring?Well, I hope my badgers are sweet and like to weed the garden. So far they are doing an excellent job of walking all over my plants every night.
I have a delivery today...not sure if it’s that bag of cement I ordered or a diamond ring...the email just said there was a package coming from a shipper.
Oh Come on @missy, we’re you sick of Greg getting all the attention..? Seriously though. I’m pretty sure you’ve had your share of bad luck now. Please feel better soon! Fingers crossed!@bling_dream19 I am so glad you got married in December too! And enjoyed a honeymoon. Thank you for all your warm wishes. (((Hugs))).
@Austina I'm sorry you didn't get all the fresh produce you were hoping to get but glad you are still well stocked and eating healthfully. How nice you will donate to those in need. That cake looks scrumptious.
@Mamabean I want to know too...how was your visit with your DH? Hope it was wonderful!
@Daisys and Diamonds thank you and right back atcha and hugs.
@AV_ thank you. I love seeing all the beautiful trees and plants.
I'm icing and elevating. The excitement here continues lol.
I am so glad you enjoyed a wonderful visit and happy you were able to give him food to take back with him. That is love. I am so happy he is coming back on Saturday to see you guys. LOL yes the food isn't a negative.@bling_dream19 @missy It was so nice to see him. It was a little chilly for my mom to be outside so she said hello and went back in the house. David was In the middle of a movie when Shatzie showed up so we visited by ourselves in the back yard like we were courting in the 1800’s. He was a good ten feet away...He’s not a talker but I haven’t spoken to anyone in three weeks in person except for David and my mom. David doesn’t carry on conversations and my mom never was a talker. She just sits in her chair and reads...My boys would often say she just answers them on the phone and then silence. I chatted up a storm and he had to keep up with me...It was really nice. I made two pizzas...My mom and I had a slice each but David had two.....I wanted to make sure he could take the leftovers and a whole pie home...I also made him two meatloaves. He’s coming back on Saturday. He’s lost without us...He doesn’t do well alone. There’s also the food draw...
LOL yes you found me out.
That face! He’s adorable @missy!I am so glad you enjoyed a wonderful visit and happy you were able to give him food to take back with him. That is love. I am so happy he is coming back on Saturday to see you guys. LOL yes the food isn't a negative.
Thanks for the good wishes. Icing it on and off. I think it is better than yesterday but I am being very careful.
LOL yes you found me out.
Oh no @missy...That’s so sad...The loss of lives is so painful even though I don’t know them personally.Thank you Great Kate @Tekate! Yes doorman is doing well thank goodness. But very unhappy sad news. My friend C lost her mom to Covid just yesterday I am so so sad for her and her family. Her dad is still in the hospital. They were both admitted a few weeks ago.

It is great your SIL wanted to help out and I am surprised they told her no. In NYC they would have let her as they are asking for anyone who can help. But it is at great risk as you know. My friend the pulmonologist is ok so far. I am worried so for his safety. And everyone at the front lines. Including my sister and BIL.
Hoping everyone stays safe.
Thank you for enjoying the photos. Brooklyn is pretty and it is generally a pretty great place to live. I love hearing the cheers at 7PM and we join them. Go front liners. GO healthcare workers. Everyone everywhere who is helping however they can rocks!
Sending you so much love and hugs too and my heart to yours dear Great wonderful Kate. XOXO.
