Hey, I know what you're thinking ... "Good grief, Rena, you are so weird!" If anyone knows how true that is, it would be me. Some people hate squirrels and see them as pests who destroy their homes or gardens. I happen to adore them. I see them as adorable, little furry creatures who are a constant source of entertainment -- not to mention my cat. All I have to do is say, "Squirrey!" and Denny gets all buggy-eyed and starts looking out the window. And no, that's not a typo. I do say it more like, "SQUIRR-REEE!" So yeah, the whole Rena, you are so weird thing fits -- like a glove.
Squirrel Appreciation Day is always January 21st. Check out the link if you don't believe me. I posted a picture on Facebook yesterday of my poor birdfeeder. I'd forgotten to take it inside and we got nearly a foot of snow in a 24-hour period. I just asked Rick to dump it off and add new seed to it. He was already outside in the snow, whereas I'm sitting here in my Las Vegas jammies. So, Squirrey has fresh seeds out there today, providing he can tromp over all the snow to get to the feeder.
So, how about you -- love squirrels, or hate them?
