Someone said where do you live?

I said in a hole.

A hole?

Yeah a hole is my home.

Not only my home, but fredrick’s home.

Fredrick?

Yeah it’s more of a summer home for Fredrick, he has eight legs and is carnivorous.

So this home?

Yes, My home.

Indeed.

Well yes, the home. It shelters me from the elements, keeps my family safe from predators and stores my food.

What does your home do…?….

This will be a reoccurring post.  I like looking at where my feet walk and then look up to find out what is going on in this micro ecosystem.  What might be coming through here?  Where is the sun at what time of day? How long have you been here? Who may have stepped here before me?
