Here's Buddy, one of the many squirrels in my yard. He's robbing the bird feeder. We call all the squirrels Buddy in honor of one that used to visit our window. Miss Emma and Buddy had quite a love affair going on - nose to nose through the glass - crying for each other. We identified Buddy because he had a unique ringed tail. Circles of white hairs shone clearly on the grey.
One day Buddy stopped coming and we told Emma that he had moved to a farm in the country....she was never the wiser. But she was heartbroken. She pays absolutely no attention to any squirrel at the feeders now. Not even a look. She won't even pick up her head. Love scorned has turned her into a bitter, bitter bitch.
Tonight, around midnight, my youngest son Russell and his sweetie Taryn will arrive!!! WAHOOO!!! They live in New Jersey and I haven't seen them since last November!!! I was so excited that I went to bed at 6:30 p.m. last night - it was still light out! But I got 12 hours of sleep and I am ready and raring to go for this weekend.! We'll head out Friday or Saturday for Kiley's birthday in Machias. PARTY TIME!!! See you next week - if I survive!
