Squirrel Wednesday

The Great Raid: A Squirrel Tail, er, Tale 

The stealthy squirrel approaches...

 Cautiously he makes he way toward the human compound...

 Success! He has procured a discarded dinner roll!

Retreating to a safe distance, he contemplates his next move...

Should have swiped some butter, he observes.


  1. Yeah, what was he thinking...no butter?

  2. Also, this being my homeland, sorghum syrup, otherwise called molasses (not the same as sugar molasses).

  3. Hilarious! I love how squirrels can carry around a chunk of food much larger than their own heads. Can you imagine carrying around a loaf of bread bigger than your head using just your jaws?

  4. I have a young female squirrel coming to the tea cup. it must be her first year. the first time I saw her on the tea cup, I opened the back door. usually that makes the squirrels run away but she just looked at me and I looked at her. I decided she could eat whatever she wants. when I see her, I will open the door and we will look at each other. I talk to her. I let the other girls eat too but chase the boys away.

    1. Awwww! I talk squirrels, too...sometimes nicely, sometimes cussing at them for digging up my crocus bulbs or filching a green tomato.

  5. ...they may be thieves on the bird table...but I still love their antics!!

  6. Hilarious. They are such comical animals.
