A new visitor!
HELLO MY NAME IS PIPSQUEAK. I live under Zannyro’s bed and read her Agatha Christie books when she’s not looking. I apologize for not wearing shoes today, but zannyro says wearing high heels all of the time will give me ugly toes when I’m older. I spend most of my day waiting for Max the dog to come by so that I can jump out and pinch him and then I get to listen to him scream. Everybody has always wondered why he randomly shrieks and runs, so don’t tell them…they’ll make me stop.
(This squirrel does not really live under my bed…I’m positive, because after reading this I went and checked. Apparently it’s living under my bathtub.)
There is definitely a new Blue Jay in town. First it attacks the hawk…now it’s brave enough to actually sneak up and steal a peanut with a squirrel RIGHT NEXT TO HIM/HER !! I never see this, usually they give the squirrels PLENTY of room…..So may I introduce to you once again…
“THE NINJA BLUE JAY”…..
Some days things just aren’t easy…there’s somebody standing in our way…keeping us from achieving our goal. This is the sad case of a squirrel who was trying to get a peanut…JUST ONE LOUSY PEANUT…would his co-worker share with him? I THINK NOT!! The cruelty of the animal kingdom is just too much to bear sometimes.
I like this image, but I would have liked it better if they had been singing to each other, or dancing the cancan, or knitting hats….but they were just busy being regular squirrels…
To all of my more recent followers…sometimes this kind of silliness just happens on the blog….please don’t leave me…I’ll snap out of it soon…..but sometimes you just have to be a little silly…(at least I do).
After all of this, they climbed into a tree and took a nap….so did I.
By the expression on his little face, I’d say he’s had TOO many peanuts….
Somebody was REALLY excited about the slightly warmer temperature the other day!
IT JUST SMELLS SO GOOD!!
These little squirrels are so feisty!! The fox squirrels are no fools…they leave before there’s trouble.
PEANUT SKIN STUCK IN THROAT! PEANUT SKIN STUCK IN THROAT!
I DON’T WANT THIS ANYMORE…
The picture of the squirrel in the snow was taken just over a week ago when we had our big snowstorm…the squirrels in the tree..NEW SQUIRRELS!!..I would LOVE to know what goes on in the mind of a squirrel..anybody out there a squirrel psychologist?? Or just someone with a theory???? Or someone with a stupid guess???? Ask your significant other, your Grandmother, your Grandfather, your husband, your wife, you children (oooohhh..that could be interesting)!!, What do THEY think??? I would be fascinated to hear everyone’s thoughts…(but keep it clean…the kiddos follow this too you know …)
See He’s just eating a peanut…..I just ate ten peanuts..
I had a visitor today….I could almost hear him say…Ten inches of snow?….I laugh in the face of ten inches of snow…HAHAHAHAHA!
I must apologize…this was shot through a window…so it’s clarity is lacking..
A very kind blogger from Istanbul http://photographyofnia.com/ knitted hats for Baldy, the little bald headed squirrel…he must have decided to share with his friends!!
I’m a little worried…..some of my newer followers haven’t really been exposed to my “Squirrel adventures”….they’ve not really seen pictures of my backyard visitors, because I’ve been down here in Florida….
As a lot of you know, this blog swings widely from subject to subject, so I hope all of you “newbies” don’t mind the erratic shifts that you might experience in following me….
Now that I’ve probably bored a LOT of people…look what I found here in Florida…SQUIRRELS!! These squirrels are not like the ones up North…they are WAY smaller…a lot like our “piney squirrel”….
Some things are NOT different though……they look at me like I’m a dangerous felon, just like the squirrels at home….
The picture of the trees are just to show you that where these little guys live it’s a squirrel paradise..lots and lots of acorns!
You’re going to see a picture of a poodle mixed in with the squirrels…I found this kind of odd…I was sitting on a bench, photographing the squirrels and a man and a woman walked up with this dog…let go of the dog about six feet away from me and proceeded to let him hunt them……(the squirrels, not the people).
After the dog failed in his attempt to kill the squirrel, the owner tried to strike up a conversation with me…asking me if I thought the dog would ever catch one…..
I was a little cranky after the dog scared all of my little photo subjects away…and you know, BECAUSE THEY WERE GOING TO LET THE DOG TRY TO CATCH AND KILL THE SQUIRREL….so I didn’t have much to say.
This is another one of my…”not quite in focus” shots…but hey, these guys were quite a distance from my window……
I don’t think this was a friendly moment…

This poor ash tree died two years ago, but it’s an escape route, sunbathing spot, and favorite “look-out” spot for a LOT of squirrels….I guess it’s just going to have to fall down on it’s own….I don’t have the heart to take it away from them…
THINGS HAVE SEEMED TO BE QUIET AND PEACEFUL OUTSIDE MY WINDOW INTO THE WOODS…BUT YESTERDAY….I BEGAN TO WONDER…
Now for my more recent followers…I tend to veer off track…photographs of the beauty outside the window one day….a little silliness the next day…so hang in there, I never stay in one mood for very long..if you love the nature shots, they’re sure to be back in no time…but, once in a while, I just have to go “silly”. For this short post..I’m going silly.
I SENSED A LITTLE TENSION IN THE AIR….WHAT WAS UP?
MY SENSE OF UNEASE GREW AND GREW AND THEN I SAW IT……..A NINJA SQUIRREL SPY….SPYING ON ME !!!!!!
I THINK I’M IN TROUBLE….
We’ve met Baldy the Squirrel….The ninja Squirrel….now we have………Glamerossa the Squirrel……She has a way about her….She’s always posing for the paparazzi……batting her eyelashes and sashaying through the back yard….Stopping traffic with her beauty wherever she goes…( Which is a very good talent to have if you’re a squirrel)….
(LOOK AT THAT POSE, SHE’S A NATURAL MODEL…)
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…
