Hairy Nemo

 I have a very strange household, human and critters. How? Well let me tell you about Hairy Nemo. I have a very battered rain gauge, hung on the end of my vegetable patch. I used to empty it regularly until Hairy Nemo decided that he loved living in it, just above the water line. I don't know how he does it as in summer it would be like a sauna in there. Hmmmm, maybe he likes the health benefits. The other day I was wandering about in a fog, when I accidentally turfed him out. He waited patiently for me to realize the enormity of what I had done. I put the rain gauge on the ground and he crawled right back into it. I even refilled the water for him. I felt like I had been chastised. I think I need therapy!!!

One old rain gauge.

    1. Yes, he must love it as he's been there for months.

  2. My word, Nemo IS big, and hairy! He obviously likes his home! xxx
