May I please post a muse? Spike is a friend not often seen of late. So sad but so many of our nocturnal friends are now so often victims of road-kill. Have you ever actually held one in your hands. Mind you, they must have ten times more fleas than spines. Nevertheless, holding one is great. Their tiny faces and in fact, everything about them is great.
One evening some years ago. I was as usual in my shed/workshop. I left my bode to gain a cuppa. Val and the girls were watchin TV some sci-fi or whatever. I returned to the shed. Then I heard it. Heavy breathing, snuffling etc. The brief scenes of the TV was still in my mind. Yes a bit creepy. So nI switched on the extension light. Soon I found the mystery heavy breather. Spike was foraging along the raised garden boundary. So all's well that ends well.
