I think I have the world’s largest vinegar library. I have all kinds of vinegars in jars from A to Z. Now Kirby says he has a bigger vinegar library than I do. What he doesn’t know is that during the winter my forest friends helped me create 24 new recipes! I now have 137 different vinegars to choose from.
Some of the new recipes I think animals would like better than humans.
That is not surprising since some of the newest recipes come from muskrats, woodchucks, and a black bear. Maybe some people will not like ants in their vinegar.
Anyone one in my hometown can borrow any vinegars if they want to use a jar for dinner or lunch. My friends also borrow my recipe cards if they
like a vinegar in the library.
I know everyone has seen a snow man before. I have made several hundred snow men this Winter with my friends when we were off from school two days in a row. This newest, best idea is simple if you can climb trees or have a ladder and have adult supervision.
My idea is snow animals, that only live in trees. How do you make snow animals? You can either use the snow that is on the branch of a tree. Or you carry snow in your pockets to the branch where you want your snow animal to live.
I have made as of today, a WOODCHUCK snow animal; a RABBIT snow animal, a ERMINE snow animal; a RAT snow animal; and a DEER snow animal. I forgot I put a MOLE snow animal in the tree by the STREAM near our house.
Please enjoy the snow if you still can. I HAD TO GET PERMISSION FROM MY DAD TO put my snow animal in a tree. He helped me get in the tree safely.
Thank you. Have a nice day!
“I am not a ground hog” my friend Wilfred T. Woodchuck said. “Put me down” Wilfred said to the humans dressed in black suits and top hats. “And stop calling me Jimmy” he said as he jumped down to a wood stump near the men with hats and ran to his hole in the forest.
Wilfred is a a graduate from Kickapoo Valley Community College in meteorology and works for *NOAA. He always wears the very stylish, regionally appropriate Stormy-Kromer hat made in the Upper Pennisula of Michigan. He told me that with his European, climate computer models he can predict the weather five days into the future, and that seeing your shadow or not seeing your shadow is just silly and “has nothing to do with serious meteorology.”
I did not want to tell Wilfred that as a Marmot or relative of the squirrel his species has so many names like whistle pig, land beaver, woodchuck and ground hog!
