I couldn't let the weekend unfold without giving an update on the latest development.
Apparently the squirrels overheard all the bird ruckus the other day about my blog and with a little bit of evesdropping, discovered that they had a small following.
The squirrels have been absent a day or so. I suspect they are off organizing a union to demand more pay for performance. Pay in the form of food, that is. ~sigh~ Their moods can be as volatile as the stock market!
In the meantime, Carmen Chipmunk, was out and about enjoying the sunny afternoon.
Me: Hi Chipmunk .... how's your day going?
Carmen Chipmunk: Oh, hello House Lady. My day? Fine, just fine. Enjoying a few scraps of food here under the bird feeders.
Me: Chipmunk, you know, I haven't seen those squirrels all day. There's still some corn left over yonder. Considering how they wouldn't share with you the other day, I think you should dig in!
Carmen Chipmunk: Really? You haven't seen them all day? Where are they?
Me: Not sure ... but it can't be good.
Carmen Chipmunk: Well if you're sure they aren't around ....
Carmen Chipmunk: ..... maybe I'll just mosey over yonder .....
Carmen Chipmunk: .... and check things out .... can't hurt....
Carmen Chipmunk: Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my goodness ....
Carmen Chipmunk: I love love love love love corn
Carmen Chipmunk: I'm gathering as much and as fast as I can House Lady before those squirrels come back!
Me: Oh my chipmunk .... please don't choke!!!
Although chipmunk mumbled something I couldn't understand as she scurried away .... I'm thinking it was something like a 'thank you'.
Hope your weekend is as joyous as chipmunk's were those few minutes on the corn cob chair!
