    He looks plump enough to survive a blizzard!

      It could be a she. There were terrific squirrel fights on the patio today, trying to find the best place to curl up and stay warm. The snow stopped, and the sun came out. It’s supposed to be 60F tomorrow.

    So cute and cuddly looking. I am going to miss the birds and wildlife when I move. There’s a group of kookaburras that have a good laugh at about 5:30 every morning. You have a pleasant day ahead, we’re still enduring 40s for days to come. I think the whole country is just going to instantaneously combust one day.

  3. Ahh, squirrel! Stoic-looking, and thickly furred. Really, squirrels fight? You’d think they’d be sharing the scarce resources. Chess, what’s a squirrel fight look like? Do you watch through the window, like we look at tv?

      Squirrel fights are really noisy and they knock stuff down. They broke the cast iron bell thing my mommy bought when she went antiquing (antique being a verb now) one time with her mom, and so the guy I live with has to fix it. Again.

    So the snows are coming again to cover up all the sunflower seed shells? I read your weather reports to prepare for our weather, 2 or 3 days later. It has been cute watching the little red squirrels tunnel through our snow depths and pop up every foot or so to find a wind blown sunflower seed or three. Poor things can’t do that anymore as your warm winds have given us easterners a big melt. Winter isn’t even one month old yet but feels older than that. Thank goodness there are thousand of plants in your garden visible during those breaks!

      Only an inch (2.5cm) of snow, which started to melt later that day. The problem, which is more for the guy I live with than for someone whose toenails have grown way too long but aren’t going to be clipped by anyone in this house since the blood stains are still on the practically new carpet and nothing has worked to get them out, is that the paths are thick sheets of ice from all the melting that went on before yesterday and so the thick sheets of ice are covered with snow and hard to see. Even I fell down, though I fall down from time to time because the goofballs make my hind legs less strong, or something, than before. I do okay, though. The guy I live with, however, does a lot of slipping and sliding.

    Thanks for putting that song in my head Chess. Nothing gets Kookaburras down. I have lots of bird baths which are always used constantly and even though I have had large King Parrots at them I have never seen a kookaburra anywhere near water.

      The guy I live with sang it the whole time we were on our walk. There are worse things to have in your head. When the guy I live with was working, someone would start singing something like “Green acres is the place for me, etc” and then he’d be singing or humming it for days, and my mommy would get really irked and she tell him to stop singing that …… song, and he’s sing quietly “Land, spreadin’ out so far and wide” and she’d get madder and madder. He did things like that. The snow from yesterday has melted, and now we just have the earlier snow on the ground. It’ll all be gone in a few days.
