"Oh, these are the people"...er...

Hopefully some of you are old enough to remember the Sesame Street segment singing about different people and their jobs.  The muppets taught us all about different jobs – Nurses, Conductors, Teachers, Police… 
Everyone joined in together for the chorus:  "These are the people in your neighborhood, in your neighborhood, in your neighborhood.  Oh, these are the people in your neighborhood, they're the people that you meet each day!"
Lisa surveys the scene.
Today I thought I’d share some of the people… er… creatures! in my neighborhood.

First up, Lisa, our trusty doggie-guard.  She's got a mean bark, but is super sweet.  (That's my door on the second floor - with the bars.)

Pay no attention to the gecko behind the curtain!
Above my backdoor.  And yes, I have
tried to get him to leave through it!
Here are two pictures of my new room-mate.  I've been told they do a great job of eating bugs.  I'm trying to pretend he stays up on the wall... even though his droppings seem to indicate he's getting around under stuff. 

So far none near my bed, so here's hoping he'll stay clear!

Across the street is a field. There used to be goats, now there are horses. Hopefully you can see this horse's friend, the white bird underneath sharing some yummy grass. I see them hanging out together all the time. 
Friends of a feather... er... mane... stick together! 
I guess she thought the grass was greener...
Pictured above is who met me when I was trying to leave the other day. This is my road, just up from my house.
Don't let them I know I used work for Perdue, please!

Speaking of birds... here are some chickens (black) and a rooster (with a red-feathered head) hiding out in the brush of another yard.  Pretty much each house has one dog (at least), and several chickens and roosters.

So, there you have it.  Just a few of the creatures that I meet when I'm walking (or driving or running!) down the street!!  They're (some of!) the creatures that I meet each day!

  1. Now that song is stuck in my head. Thankfully, I like it! It's fun to see your surroundings and the "wildlife" included.
