And, thank you Mary for sharing that wonderful story. How lucky that you and your husband were able to see the babcats. How special!

Mary - thanks for sharing the bobcat story! They are such gorgeous animals. Hopefully you'll see them again and maybe the mother as well.
My activity on the last 3 days of 2006 has been watching people ski, sled,snowboard, build igloos and snowmen in the park across the street. By the end of the day Friday, the kids had built a 6 foot high snow ramp with steps to the top where they could put their little sled and go sledding downhill into the park. All afternoon there was a line of kids (and adults) lined up for their turn on the ramp. Now that whole area of the park is a sheet of ice, so they are going really fast. I'm sure by noon today, they'll start all over again. We got a total of 16 inches of snow and it was 9 degrees this morning with a high today predicted of 34, so it looks like we'll have snow for quit a while. Very unusual weather for the high desert of the southwest. But I LOVE IT!
Big Hugs to you all,

Thank you for sharing the story about the bobcats! I've only seen bobcats in a zoo and on TV. However, we used to live 15 miles out of town and there happened to be a couple of lion's dens a couple of miles from our home. We could hear them, especially when the babies were wandering around! Our burro and donkey knew where they were at all times... their ears were like antennaes, so we were alerted by their behavior! lol One particular day, my husband went out to give our critters their sweet oats, but neither of them came, which was strange in itself! Hubby heard the cat over by our propane tank and decided he wasn't going to hang around there any longer!
Because we had dry, more arid land, we were inclined to see coyotes and snakes (bull and rattle) once in awhile too. My "Davey Crockett"even got 2 rattlers before they got him, when he was doing finish work on his shop!
