Lemur Troops & Critter Groups trailer
After I finished it, I decided to mess about with my old trailer for A New Job for Dilly. I found out that was impossible because we had changed PS programs since making it. In addition, Facebook refused to let me keep it up because of copyright issues with the song. You Tube took the music off as well. I was trying to get permission from the person who owns the rights to the song, but it's been more trouble than it's worth. So, I changed the trailer and used a different song. Here it is ...

Critter enjoyed the hike, especially with the weather being so nice. He saw lots of squirrels, two snakes, some deer, some elk, a woodpecker, some loons on the lake, lots of other birds, some butterflies, and even some dogs walking with their people on the trail. When he reached Holland Falls, he got to sit on the rocks and eat GORP. For those who don't know what GORP is -- Good Ol' Raisins and Peanuts. Critter enjoyed his snack.
I still need to someone to host Critter next. I know Bish wants to take him to the islands when she goes back home and I think he'd really love that. After his time in the mountains, a tropical island trip is just what he needs. I think Bish goes on her trip at the end of May, so we need to find someone in the meantime. If you would like to host Critter and feature him on your blog, please let me know here or through my email -- thanks.

We haven't done any of the activities yet, but I am scheduling them for next week. I think we'll start at the beginning and study the element of line design. Some of the projects include making a spider web, grid drawing, showing motion through lines, and kaleidoscope lines. If you're looking for a book that teaches about art design, this seems like a fun one. It's published by Williamson Books.

- Follow Critter's Adventures and blog, tweet, or FB about Critter.
- Offer your blog to host a Critter visit.
- Suggest his FB page to others.
I took this picture Wednesday morning when we woke up to some new snow. It's mostly all melted now, but Critter thought it was cool and wanted his picture taken. He was funny because he just wanted to pose in front of the snow, not in it. Maybe he didn't want to get his little Critter feet wet. Anyway, we're looking forward to his visit and we hope he gets to see lots of Montana critters while he's here.If you'd like to host Critter on your blog, please let me know because I have to send him off soon. Stay tuned ...
