Lucky Squirrel

My friend Squirrel is the luckiest squirrel in town, considering the good things my mom tosses out for it to eat....

Today it is raw pecans.  My mom loves raw pecans and last winter when we were in Arizona, she bought several bags of these things.  I don't care for them myself.

Well, this weekend, in a flurry of fridge-cleaning activity, she (my mom) found a small bag of pecans way at the back of a shelf, tasted them, and found them maybe a little 'off'.  Well, what the heck, we are going down to Arizona again pretty soon....

So Squirrel got a treat - and boy, did she ever like these pecans!

Yep, best fed squirrel in town.  She lives in the big spruce tree in the front yard.

Things Change...Sigh

I was looking through some photos the other day.  I really don't know what happened.  It seems like not too long ago, I spent my days doing this

I felt powerful, in control; I was in-charge of my pleasant green, warm yard.

But now, my bench is gone.  This is where it was.  I think an ice age has come upon us.

And, now I spend much of my days like this

A viewer only, no longer a participant.  My meagre view

As another cat once said, I haz a sad

I think I'll have a nap.

Too Cold

I was pretty sure I wanted to go outside this morning.  I've been 'bothering' my mom about it.  So she snapped me into my new blue harness, hooked up the leash and opened the door.

(gasp) COLD!!!

Nope, I've changed my mind. 

This time she didn't throw me out in that snow like she did yesterday.  Cruel person.

It's probably warmer outside the back door.....
