  6. This is amazing. It’s really brightened up my day! Thanks.


  7. This is so much fun! I HATE those adorable little critters but I admit they are amazing to watch (unless they’re chewing up our deck or flinging themselves at our bird feeder). I really appreciate your humor and am glad I stopped by!

    • Thanks so much for reading and commenting! I know they are pests – we have them in our backyard and they love to grip our palm trees upside down – but this is a cute story regardless! Hope you are well in this quarantine life!

  10. I love that idea, John. If I didn’t have Ollie, I would definitely get one. We don’t get too many squirrels, as Ollie sees them off in seconds!
    Best wishes, Pete.
