Adventures on my Paper Route – Nosehair is Growing Up!


I realize many of my current followers weren’t around for the introduction of Nosehair–or actually The Tree Formerly Known As Nosehair–so I’ll provide a little background.

It all started with a tree that I walk past daily on my paper route who has a face. This is Nosehair when he actually had a nosehair:



You can read about Nosehair and his subsequent plucking here:

Then, drama happened. An evil nemesis (who I tidily named “Nemesis”) from the city came to cut down some of The Tree Formerly Known As Nosehair’s friends! It was a terrible time. I managed to speak to this evil city employee, but he was evasive about his plans. You can read about it here:

Since that time the neighbourhood has been mostly quiet. I have a little chat with The Tree Formerly Known As Nosehair most days as I walk by. I’m sure the people who live in the house he stands in front of think I’m a little nuts, but the squirrels like me.

So where is this all leading to? The news! The Tree Formerly Known As Nosehair has his first tooth!


His first tooth!

Doesn’t he look handsome? *sniff sniff* My baby’s growing up!

  3. That is too funny Linda. I be afraid to go cloud watching wiith you – we’d have castles and knights and ladies and fairies. And maybe burritos. 🌯 πŸ˜€


  4. Ohh man I’m so grossed out but that was funny. Well said. (:


  5. Awww… I just hope he didn’t have too many teething pains along the way, and that he avoids the pain of tooth decay!
