Saturday Silliness: Cute Kitty Workers

Minimum wage for these two cuties is a bowl of kibbles and as many hugs and cuddles a day as they can garner from staff and customers at Canadian Tire, a company with heart. Workers rescued these kitties, now named Baby and Jimmy, from harsh winter conditions where they found them outside the store in Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada. Now they live quite contentedly in their new home. Who knew that cats could help sell tires?

Skywatch: Pineapple Fountain

I came across this pineapple fountain in a small square on First Street in the Riverside District of Fort Myers, Florida. I looked high and low for an identification plaque but couldn’t find one. Even googling it produced no results, although I did find a gorgeous pineapple fountain in Charleston, South Carolina. I’ll visit that fountain in April. I’ll check with the Chamber of Commerce and the Fort Myers’ Visitor’s Center next for some info on this First Street fountain. There must be a story behind it, other than representing early pineapple plantations in the area.

Birding at Lovers Key, Ft Myers Beach, Florida

Yesterday I visited Lovers Key State Park near Ft. Myers Beach in Florida with several family members. We were lucky enough to see a very bold Great Blue Heron striding about in royal manner, seemingly unafraid of the people enjoying the beach. Even the noisy pontoon boats pulling up on the sand did not seem to bother this fellow who was simply intent on getting his lunch.
