Lat night, The Breadman was mowing the backyard when I heard the mower go quiet. A minute later he was knocking at the door. I opened it and saw him holding this:
Now brace yourself, this is extra ordinarily cute and adorable. Are you ready?
So, you would think that would be enough, right?
We had some pretzels, so we broke him off a little piece. He sat thisclose and ate it while we watched. The photo above is not zoomed in on at all. He was right there.
Then he climbed right up beside me and tried to climb in my bag. "Hey, whatcha doing?" (This one cracks me up)
We never touched him or bothered him so he finally went along his way. We couldn't believe that he was so tame. A bit later, another family came to play at the playground. The squirrel made his way towards them and started to interact with them. But, they decided to hold him and snuggle him and show him to their little kids. The squirrel behaved, but they were really being wreckless holding him and carrying him around. One of the ladies walked up towards her car saying, "I'm going to put him in a box." We stopped her and asked what she was doing. She thought he was so sweet that she was going to take him home to live in her pasture (Yea, right).
We strongly suggested that she not do that, but she went and got the boxes anyway. The people were holding him and trying to coax him into the box. We didn't really want to see that happening since we were against it, so we got in our cars and left.
Or did we?
Or maybe, just maybe, we went to the Park Ranger and tattled on the squirrelnappers! This is at the Civil War battelfield and you are noteven allowed to pick a flower as it is a federal Offense. So, no squirrelnapping! The Park Ranger called out the troops and headed over to tell them NO You are not taking the squirrel. I am a squirrelnapper tattle tale and proud of it. But we did get the hell out of there before they came after us.
We are brave, but not stupid.
