I’m guessing this is just hat week…..I made a joke about wearing a hat with a book on it yesterday..and later in the afternoon I got a surprise…
I went over to see Melvin for a minute and there was Bob….with the hat that came all the way from Istanbul on his head…the hat was a gift from nia http://photographyofnia.com/..but it was intended for Baldy the Bald headed squirrel and the last time I saw it, Baldy was wearing it…
I’m wondering how the hat ended up ALL the way over at Melvin’s….flying squirrel possibly??? ANYWAY…..I think Bob is planning on going to the book signing with me. I hate to tell him this but I don’t think he’ll fit into my backseat…
TODAY IS A GREAT DAY!!
Just ignore me….I’m just happy because “Mama’s” (the three legged deer that my book is about),
daughter Dash showed up!!
Haven’t seen her in MONTHS and I was afraid she didn’t make it through the
winter…then this morning, THERE SHE WAS!! She was just hanging around down
by the sycamore tree, munching on leaves.
I was able to grab a little bucket of corn, open the door, and talk to her while I spread the corn.
It took her about a half an hour to wander up to get the corn, she’s forgotten me I think. She’s
more nervous than she was last year. She may be getting ready to have her baby though, so maybe
that’s why she’s more cautious.
The BEST news, while she was eating corn, up runs BALDY! They ate corn together
and here is the proof!
AND…IT’S RAINING! YAHOO!!!
Are you anywhere near Candy?, or a comfy chair???? Presenting….THE THRONE!
All is ready and we are waiting, waiting so see the little squirrel show up…..
You can see that one little squirrel already stopped by, but he just wanted to
speak to me about a personal matter.
We have suspended each hat, so that If and when “Baldy” sits down to eat a peanut
we can “crown” him with the hat then and there….I wonder which hat he’ll like the
best? I cannot say that I have a personal favorite..but I did take one to Florida
with me when I was taking my little break….I won’t say which one…If you feel
like letting me know which one you like the best, I’m sure Nia and myself would
love to hear your comments…
This post is dedicated to my buddy who had surgery today! You’ll be up and
about in no time…but hopefully, if it won’t cause you any pain, you’ll get
a laugh out of this!
I felt that I should write tonight because there has been a developing story concerning
the little bald squirrel. Niasunset, who is an angel,has actually knitted a hat for
the little squirrel and the hat will soon be crossing the world to come to me in order
that it can be presented to the squirrel. I have advised a few special co-conspirators
of this situation,,,I will be sending Nia a pair of “squirrel underpants” that I actually
purchased in a store…as a token of my undying gratitude for her kind and gentle heart.
