St. Francis Statue Continues to Amaze

To the left is my statue of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and ecology. Perhaps this chipmunk is aware of the hagiography of St. Francis, or perhaps this is just a convenient perch from which to view my backyard.

This, by the way, is the same Miracle Statue of St. Francis that resisted all efforts by Mother Nature to bury him in snow during the Blizzard of 2007.

I suspect that the photographic evidence I am collecting on this miraculous piece of statuary will bolster my case for a pious - and righteously hefty - auction on eBay.

Opening bid: $5.

Nonsense. If it's not in food form (i.e., a grilled cheese sandwich, fried egg, or cheeto), it's not worth bidding for on eBay.

Or at least society would have me believe.

Also noteworthy: My family is testament to the thought that burying a statue of St. Joseph in the backyard will help you sell a house. Not sure how much success others have had.

Well, if St. Francis is the patron/protector of animals, this guy is milking it for everything that it is worth.

Have you given him a name yet Mike?
