201 of 210 : Mr. Otter

Darryl and Janet’s home backs onto a fairly new manmade lake, which made the appearance this afternoon of “Mr. Otter,” as they called him, all the more surprising. An actual otter, lying on his back, sunning himself unconcernedly on the bank. Now they’re on Otter Watch, cameras at the ready.

A cousin, perhaps?

I discovered, while paddling down the Santa Fe River, the Shema is an effective otter call.

"An otter" is on my list of "I want to come back as..."

Adamus: That's amazing. I wonder what effect a shofar would have had.

IB: You and Laura both!

Thank you. I knew there was a reason I didn't toss my Saki when purging a closet of books recently.

Do you know how much I LOVE this post!!

Growing-up Otter, one of my biggest joys came when I was canoeing a tribuatry of the Mississippi and a river otter swam right up to my canoe. Otterly fantastic.
