for the love of squirrels…

aren’t these snaps cute????? Once, when he was about eleven, a baby squirrel climbed up and into my brother Will’s shirt and finally up onto his shoulder. True! It was freaky but so cool.  My mother regularly contributes to rehab centers for squirrels and birds. We like to feed them, the kiddo and I, open faced peanut butter sandwiches in the back yard…so cute, the way they nibble the pb off. We like squirrels. We really, really do.

    sometimes I wonder what a domesticated squirrel would be like as a pet, but i see that too-much-caffeine twitch in their nose and maniacal gleam in their little eyes and realize that they are not domesticate-able, as at the first sign of an open door they’ll run back out to hoard their squirrel goodies and leap from tree to tree because they’re always a little out of their tree, so to speak.

    Come on over to my house and visit Flying Squirrel World!
    We can have a cup of Tea and watch the circus from my kitchen window. They are quite talented performers!
    Love your writing!
    Love the photos!

    I’d love to look you up next time I’m in the area, Gert. We saw a line of ducks outside our window yesterday. Or maybe they were geese…hard to tell from about twenty feet away.
