LOOK! LOOK!! LOOK!!!
I was out doing my daily patrol of the perimeter of the yard…watching at all times for any rogue squirrels and I came upon this!!!!!
I leave town for just a little while and when I get back….I have new neighbors.
Well,,,only three hours and fifteen hours late……….here is the video we were all
going to watch together..I realize from many comments, that a lot of you WERE actually
gathered around your monitors at the same time…so….I guess you were all united at
that moment…by the bond of confusion and frustration……..hope the chocolates were
good and for those of you substituting wine for chocolate..you probably didn’t mind
the mix up HALF as much as the rest of us.
Thanks for being such good sports!
(IT HELPS IF YOU TAKE THIS FULL SCREEN}
For what it’s worth:
I’m being told I’m an hour away from it being UPLOADED………….I can hear
a universal moan……I can feel the candy boxes hitting the monitors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Keep checking…………..I’m sitting here with little piles of hair from my
head laying all around me….I have torn it out in frustration…now Baldy isn’t the
Well,,,I thought with the “crowning” of the little bald-headed squirrel, we had finished our
Squirrel-O-Mentary. Well I thought WRONG!! As I was casually strolling by my window
into the woods today, I was SHOCKED!, yes SHOCKED! by what I saw take place!!!!!!
Apparently there is a KING OF THE SQUIRRELS!! Gasp!!
He had picked himself a lovely tulip,,and was preparing to pluck the petals, playing the
“she loves me, she loves me not” game. I ran to get a better shot with my camera
which had somehow mysteriously appeared in my hands…THE KING! THE KING! I shouted,,the dog
cared not. By the time I reached a better vantage point, HE WAS GONE! But in his place
was A MONKEY!!! WEARING ONE OF NIA’S HATS!! Well I was SHOCKED! SHOCKED! I tell you!
(I must apologize to “the Good Greatsby”, he had a post where he was “SHOCKED” about
EVERYTHING!!,,and I loved it!)
HOW did he get one of the hats? Had the dog let him in when I wasn’t looking? It doesn’t
matter…I was SHOCKED! I later learned his name is Philippe..he is originally from France,
but was swept up by a large albatross, carried ACROSS THE WORLD..and dropped into our
woods…I must find a banana.
As I stared at him in amazement, an ASTONISHING thing happened!! Baldy charged from the
woods and tried to wrestle the hat off of Philippe’s head! You CAN NOT imagine the fear
that I felt for Baldy, and also for Philippe, as he was starting to grow on me.
After a short while the screaming stopped,,(mine, not theirs) and Baldy seemed to be trying to
reason quietly with Phillipe.
I turned away briefly to stuff a sock in my mouth,,,(I felt another scream coming on)
and when I turned back…THEY WERE GONE!! Well! You can imagine my panic, my fear,
my hunger…I’m out of chocolate…I raced from one end of the house to the other..and then
it hit me…..OH NO!!!! NOT THE ROAD!!! PLEASE!!! NOT THE ROAD!! you know
how squirrels are about a road..for those of you not familiar, let’s just say
they seem to get a strange joy out of tempting fate,,they like to see who
is faster….them or the poor unsuspecting nitwit driving madly down the road.
I RAN to the road…with my camera…AND THERE THEY WERE!! My heart was in my throat,
I could barely manage to gather my thoughts together enough to take a picture..but of
course I did…They told me they were off to get ice cream… a banana split to be exact..
with extra peanuts!
And just like that…they drove away!
As they say…ALL’S WELL, THAT ENDS WELL… OR SO I THOUGHT!!!
An hour later I notice a great uproar in the woods, and saw our magnolia bush violently shaking!!
I crept outside for a closer look,, AND I COULDN’T BELIEVE MY EYES!!
The squirrel king had reappeared..and he was NOT HAPPY.
He had seen the fighting over the hat and he thought that Baldy
and Philippe had both been acting immaturely. He felt they
had been an embarrassment to the animal kingdom…but MOST IMPORTANTLY..
they had not brought him back any ice cream..
I don’t know WHAT occurred in that magnolia bush..but I would guess
that Philippe might need more than ice cream to patch up THIS
I must stop with this post now..I am TRAUMATIZED!!! It is all too much for me..pardon me..
DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY CHOCOLATE ????? IT’S AN EMERGENCY !!!!!
(Till we meet again,heehee)
