Koshkonong Omen

There are many people who believe that animals can sense impending catastrophe. Following is a picture of a female common snapping turtle from the northwest shore of Lake Koskonong. This little girl scaled Grandpa Jerry's two-story house and dug through the roofing shingles to lay her eggs:

Jerry has also found two chipmunks, two toads, and a couple of hippies stowed away on his boat. Grandma Cheryl made little life vests for the chipmunks and toads, but shooed the hippies away with a broom. The chipmunks were complaining of the smell.

Oh, oh... It's starting to rain again.

The cat was yelling at me to build an ark, but I haven't had the heart to tell him he's incapable of continuing the feline race with the babelicious girl kitty next door...
