Damn Cute

Every morning a squirrel hops up into my kitchen window and looks at me. He's doing it right now. He and his little buddies know I toss out crusts and stale bread, and after taking their career counseling courses have become proactive. They don't wait; they ask.

But this morning, Little Squirrel is sitting there enjoying a marvelous piece of French toast. Now, you may ask yourself, did he bring this delicacy over from another yard? Why, no he did not. I actually made the boys French toast this morning.

I make great French toast. I use real bread that you have to saw off a loaf. I don't make bacon or anything else with it (I mean, be real. It's a Wednesday morning, and the brats got French toast for breakfast), but all in all, it was a better morning than usual around here.

The only problem was that some plain bread got chucked out for the squirrels as well, and they're fighting over who gets the French toast. Actually, my regular little guy just hopped up and said he'd like more coffee, if I'm coming by with the pot.

First of all, your squirrels are not "little" by any stretch of the imagination. You want to be a cowboy, they're practically big enough to saddle up and ride off into the sunset. Secondly, before you get a bone spur patting yourself on the back for making breakfast, I've experienced the appetite of your kids. Are you sure the french toast was that good. If it was, would there really be leftovers for your "little squirrel" friends? Just a question.

Actually, I'll give Roz points for making me laugh very loudly about saddling up a squirrel. The whole family is sick of me cowboying it up.

What you don't know is that she pondered over posting this, and posting something else while pretending to be Gilly, the other sister.

She is dangerous...while I just cook poorly and take squirrels to rodeos.

OK, now we need to know what "Gilly" was going to say...

Our neighbor fed the squirrels last year. They have trouble visiting now because they can't squeeze between the fence boards. I use a water gun on them. They need the excercise.
