Why We Call It Fall

Spring, summer, winter are quite specific. When summer wanes and winter's
not yet arrived, in North America we have the choice of autumn or fall.

Who Lives Here?

It's a bluebird house. But it's not birds who live here.

It's some Northern flying squirrels who have made themselves at home.
Very appealing, with the large dark eyes of nocturnal creatures and their soft fur.
(No, I didn't touch them.) They're not true flyers, rather gliders that parasail
with the aid of a web of fur-covered skin from wrist to ankle. My neighbors
John and Carol are very happy to have them around. While the squirrels don't seem
too upset at the occasional gawker, I think it better if we don't abuse the privilege.
