Judith Heartsong says "The squirrels are fat and sassy this summer..."
Sassy. That's one word for it.
It seems every time I look out the window there are squirrels buying each other Cosmos. They're teaching each other how to shoot a combo. There's a lot of squirrel activity. A lot. If you get my drift.
I'm not talking about all the nest building and all the tiny Ikea bookshelves they're hauling up to those nests. Although, of course, that's happening, too.
All I can think is that due to the increased rain there is increased food for them and they are able to kick back and enjoy all of life's pleasures a bit more.
Either that, or they are starting the squirrel revolution and building their armies! Oh, sure, they look cute...
Which reminds me: My cousin says she knew someone in college that trained a squirrel to ask for ice cream by doing a particular gesture. I say the squirrel trained the person in college to give him ice cream. Brains the size of walnuts
Then, again, why the heck would they want to take over our world? They have everything they could ever want. Plus an Ikea Allen wrench or two to drop on our heads. Weeeee!
