So here’s the thing……………..about the squirrel..There IS a bald-headed squirrel.
The problem is, he’s just too fast for me, for Peanut Butter and for Jelly.
SO……………………………on the advice of Council (you know who you are Sonel),
I’ve decided to come clean about the squirrels appearing in the Squirrel-O-Mentary.
A while back, but AFTER, I had already discovered the bald-headed squirrel and Nia
had knitted and sent the hats, something occurred.
Quite a few people here in my little world, knew about my plans for Baldy…Someone let
me know that they had “taxidermy” squirrels that they were going to get rid of.
I couldn’t stand the thought that these little squirrels were going to be gotten rid of.
They were possibly going to end up in the trash and there was NO WAY, I wanted that to
SO………………………….I gave them a home….They are my “Rescue” squirrels.
It took awhile for me to get over my aversion to their “condition”, but now I feel very
fond of them..they have their own little cabinet that they live in.
I told my husband that they were not going to have died in vain..actually, I stood right in
front of both he and my daughter and told one of the squirrels that they were going to have “long” lives.
I told it that it was going to have a long life making people happy. It sounds weird, I know,
but as a child I couldn’t go to sleep unless all of my dolls were covered up under their
little blankets. The blankets couldn’t cover their noses, because then they wouldn’t be
able to “breathe”. So now you know THAT about me.
SO………………………….that’s the story…I’m going to sit here and hold my
breath..waiting to see if you all hate me because of this deception….I almost died from lack of oxygen waiting
to hear back from “council”, hoping she would still speak to me. Not her fault, she didn’t
know I was holding my breath.
I’m glad I told you…I feel a little better now…..BUT….can the story continue?
P.S. Poor Jelly,,he came home for the Easter weekend..I had put a note on the cabinet
warning everyone NOT to open the cabinet if they didn’t want to freak-out..I also
wrote squirrel on the note..well, while I was out to dinner the note fell off the cabinet,
Jelly opened it and nearly had a heart attack…TWO squirrels were looking out at
him…because I feed the wildlife, and we actually HAD a little squirrel get in the
house once he thought they were real…poor Jelly..I felt kind of bad.
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)
Please forgive me..heehee
THROW YOURSELF IN YOUR COMFY CHAIR AND PUT ON YOUR SEATBELTS!!!!
Can you feel it????? Do you hear it in the whisper of the wind? I’m surprised
that you can’t, I’ve been out in my backyard bellowing for the little bald-headed
squirrel everyday..can’t understand why he hasn’t shown up…BUT NEW DEVELOPMENTS!
TODAY …… I have brought in an EXPERT !!!!!!!
He should arrive in just a few short hours and I KNOW that we will soon have our
CORONATION!! Everything is READY!! Next week,,and I’m talking EARLY next week,
get your chairs ready again….be ready to set the phones to vibrate…call your
friends and neighbors and have pizza beforehand…you know,,,this is just
like the superbowl…IT’S THE SUPER SQUIRREL-O-MENTARY!!!!!!
If any of you can still find them in your closets, go get out your squirrel ear hats,
your peanut hats and vests,,(see previous post). If you do not have any, trust me,
a bag of peanuts a glue gun and any shirt and hat that you have handy will work
just fine. I need committed, vocal, extroverted fan support….It would be awesome if
you could post pictures of yourself and your guests on your post..Then you
could come here and provide us all with the link!! Ooooooohhhhh,,,If you know
of a better, more efficient way to do this, let me know!
If this is to become a world-wide event..(and apparently it is already), then we all need to do our
part…spread the word…sell those peanut t-shirts, share your candy, cinnamon rolls,
tootsie rolls, and the resulting fat rolls with the WHOLE WORLD. Actually, I wouldn’t share
too much, visually, of the fat rolls….we’re trying to keep this a “Classy” event.
Yes I know, your living rooms or whatever room contains your computer could become too crowded
with anxious, gum chewing, popcorn munching, chocolate crazed fans…but is this too
high a price to pay for a LIFE-CHANGING event? I think not…you can always get the
furniture and carpet cleaned. As long as you keep it to a one drink minimum, how
much damage could your home really suffer?
Now we’re the Squirrel-o-mentary team right? So I just want to say thank you ahead of
time, to all of you fabulous team players out there. I may become too famous later and
I won’t remember your names…so THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU,!!!!!
NOW GO OUT THERE AND STOCK UP ON SUPPLIES…PUT YOUR UNWILLING NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS
ON SPEED-DIAL SO THAT YOU CAN KEEP THEM UP-DATED…. GO TEAM!!!!!!!
