Greetings everybody. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your humble doggie host
Chester L. W. Spaniel standing outside in the soggy grass.
As you can see, we still have NO SNOW! It's dark and gloomy, and raining on and off, with temperatures in the low 40's.
Check out this giant puddle!
We've got some mighty good mud too!
There have been no birdies in the trees or the feeders, and only one squirrel who fled the scene as soon as I looked out the window.
But it's a good day for winding down after the holidays.
It's a good thing we made plans to participate in the Blogville Howl-i-daze Hijinks Event! Please click these links to see what's going on today!

We interrupt your regularly scheduled program for this TDB fast-breaking news flash! Ghostwriter was looking out the window at 4:15PM and saw a falcon fly across our yard! It went too fast for her to take a picture. After watching for a while longer, the falcon came back and sat in the silver maple tree, and Dad saw it too! This is probably the bird of prey responsible for the clumps of birdie feathers that we've found in the yard over the past year. Forensics analysis identified three of the birdies who were victims of such attacks—a robin, a mourning dove, and a chickadee—all of whom lived in the Arbor Vitae apartment complex (pictured below) owned by Mr. Mortimer Seedcruncher, CEO of Sparrows Incorporated.
Now I am concerned for all the current little birdie residents who live in the Arbor Vitae apartment complex on a time share for the winter. As you might remember, I signed a contract with Mr. Seedcruncher to keep the Evil Squirrel Cartel away from the birdie feeders, which I have been doing. I have also chased a few kitty cats away from the vicinity. But I don't think there is a clause for predatory birdies like falcons. They're simply too fast for me to 1. spot, 2. get ghostwriter to let me outside and 3. chase away said predator.
Nevertheless, I will be sure to keep a close eye out for this winged perpetrator, and have advised Mr. Seedcruncher to warn all of his tenants to be careful. We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.
