    Hey lady, it’s been four and half years, and I’m still hanging out in your yard, stealing seeds from the bird feeders. How degrading is that? I was supposed to be a squirrel super model by now. You put my pictures up and everyone came by and oohed and aahed over my perfect poses and commented about how beautiful I was, and I was going places.

    Instead, here I sit, clutching a few seeds and staring hopefully toward your window…how many more good years do I have left? [sniff]

      @ Linda — LOL this comment fits that look in her eyes very well. Hey, I missed the “Remembering Rosie” post. I’ll stop by and remedy that:~)

    • Sara says:

      @ Linda — LOL That definitely fits what she might be saying to me. Hey, how’d I miss the post about Rosie. I’ll stop by and visit:~)

    Tallulah is just about to tell Jingo (our resident black squirrel) that it’s much nicer in Florida at this time of year than in Southern Ontario, Canada so why isn’t Jingo jumping on the nearest magic leaf? (they were Squirrel Skyping which involves some stolen string and lots of black walnuts). 🙂

    • Sara says:

      @ Talon — So, there is a real “Jingo.” We don’t have black squirrels, we have brown and/or gray. I loved what you said about Squirrel Skyping. Thanks for the laugh:~)

  3. Talon says:

    Oh, and I forgot to add that I loved Linda’s response! 🙂

    I loved both Linda’s and Talon’s responses! The squirrel is fussing at the birds for not kicking enough seeds, especially the tasty sunflower seeds out onto the ground for him! The property owner greased the pole that holds up the feeder so, try as he may, he cannot climb into the feeder and is completely bird-dependent! Of course, he could eat some of the acorns that are on the ground beneath his feet! But he is a very particular and lazy squirrel and would rather eat the birds’ food!

    • Sara says:

      @ Jean — What is this “comment appreciation day?” Actually, I love it that you read the other comments:~) We haven’t tried greasing the pole yet, but we do have protective covers which make it VERY challenging for our little furry guys and girls. On the other hand, we frequently provide some special squirrel treats. Happy weekend to you!

      • Jean Sampson says:

        I always read the other comments, Sara! They are usually really wonderful and a lot of times they are hilarious! 🙂 And I am glad that you provide special squirrel treats! 🙂

        • Sara says:

          @ Jean — You are great! I agree about the comments. I am very lucky to have such special people visit my site…and that includes you, of course:~)

    Hi Sara .. my first thought was before I saw the handful of nuts … oh my tummy hurts …

    Greedy guts getting as many gatherings in as possible before it gets much colder …

    I also enjoyed Linda’s and Talon’s replies .. cheers to Tallulah and you .. Hilary

    • Sara says:

      @ Hilary — Now, that’s a unique one! Given what squirrels eat, it also could be a possibility. The squirrels in my yard have been very busy lately. Even though it doesn’t get very cold, they still bury their food. I often wonder how they remember when they buried a nut????

      Cheers to you and thanks for stopping by:~)

    Talluluh is saying, “Be still my heart!” …after spying a particularly handsome new squirrel named Ian.

  7. Patricia says:

    Great replies found here and Hilary’s greedy guts made me smile ear to ear

    Our resident squirrels are all in a loving mood again with this warm rain….we are short of population control here and the snap dragons and roses are trying to bloom again.

    3 squirrels in the oldest apple tree are still hoping to find apples -there is one on the ground on the sidewalk dudes!

    • Sara says:

      @ Patricia — I agree about Hilary’s comment. Someone will find that one on the sidewalk! Hey, I’ve been enjoying your book reviews very much!!!

    She is trying to decide which ensemble looks better for her potluck peanut party this evening!

  9. Gerri says:

    Are you coming to fill the bird feeder. My squirrels have a ferocious appetite! hahaha… 😉

    • Sara says:

      @ Gerri — You are right about squirrels. They do have BIG appetites and are so very clever at getting to bird food. We have various guards to keep the them out of our feeders, but we also put some food down for them. I enjoy them. I have a couple who have learned how to traverse my “L” shaped screened in porch. It’s fun to watch and drives my cat batty because they know she can’t touch them:~)

    You’d shoot at my heart
    A bullet right there
    Don’t you know
    I’ve little’s ones for to care

    With this food in my hand
    It’s for them don’t you see
    What would my little ones do
    Without a mother, like me

    I know it seems like a lot
    Of what I’m beg of you
    Please oh please, do not shoot
    For my heart it’d go through

      @ Ellis — Sorry to be so late in responding to this delightful “Ellis Special Poem” or ESP:~) You captured the look in this squirrels eyes very well with this poem. BTW I like the squirrels and enjoy watching them almost as much as the birds and definitely do not approve of killing them!
