Imagine my surprise–and horror–when I saw this on the Park Seed calendar:
January 21 — Squirrel Appreciation Day — They’re cute, furry, and plain irresistible as they sit munching on a nut, their tails twitching and their bright eyes shining with intelligence. So take the opportunity to watch them — I bet they’ll make you smile!
Are they kidding? Who would write something like that, besides Rocky and Bullwinkle.
We will not be breaking out the nuts here. Frankly, I’m suspicious of anyone who does, but go ahead. Just don’t tell me.
Several friends have sent this video of a Rube Goldberg-type squirrel contraption to me, in case I wanted to build something squirrely for the little bastards in our yard.
I don’t think so.
