Woodchuck!! (Or Groundhog?)...
We were riding in the woods
and I was looking to the right of the road (for Moose!)
my husband said he saw something right ahead of the truck
run across the road.
He wasn't sure what it was...
It was small.
Like a muskrat, but he wasn't sure.
But he was sure of ONE thing.
He was sure it was still RIGHT THERE on the side of the road!
So, out I hopped from the truck and looked right over in the grass ahead.
THIS is what I saw:
(do you see him??)
Here, I will show you him a little closer:
He was so funny.
There were no leaves on the trees so he was hiding
right out in the open.
Only, HE thought he was hiding behind the bushes.
I heard him snicker, as we drove out of sight...
Those bushes hid me good,
I did it right!:
So, we got home and I said to my hubby:
"That was such a cute woodchuck we saw."
"You mean the GROUNDHOG?"
And, I say:
"No it was a woodchuck".
And he says: "Aren't they the same critter?"
And, I say:
"Let's Google it and check Wikipedia"....
(If Sarah Palin can do it, so can I)....
It IS the same animal.
Just in case you were wondering....
