It was a beautiful day in Burbank as we drove past Burbank High and saw the big white B on the foothill

Always fun to see Wild Kingdom on the DeBell Golf Course... here's Bambi and friends as well as Wylie Coyote!

While sitting on the grass talking to Greg van der Werff, I noticed the grass wiggling and suddenly a little gopher poked his head out of a hole and began eating the grass. We watched it for a few minutes. Then it went back down and pushed the dirt up to cover the hole. We'd never seen a gopher in person and so close lol!
