Once In A Lifetime

What's the last thing you expect to find in the coldest of all winters?




What is that fuzzy blob on that there newspaper, you ask?



A caterpillar!

While we at Ian's parents house over the Christmas break, Papa surprised Ava with a caterpillar that he found in the basement. Ava named him Fuzzy Wuzzy and liked taking him on walks and rubbing his tummy.

" Wow Mom, Fuzzy Wuzzy sure has lots of teats, where are his babies?"

"Those are feet not teats."

"I bet he can run fast!"

As a child I loved playing with caterpillars and it was fun to see Ava enjoying that same love.

Unfortunately, Fuzzy Wuzzy died a week later due to an accidental drowning caused by the poor dexterity of an over enthusiastic 3 year old.

Cute pics. How do such cute things happen to you guys? I know. Because you guys are just cute. Anywho, I think it's called a wooly bear. And you know, we had one of those awful centipedes show up in our basement last month when it was below zero. I'd rather have Fuzzy Wuzzy.
