Squirrels and Snow

I walk my pup through a large and beautiful park every evening. A park with lots of trees surrounded by a fence to keep all beings and creatures safe. Would you believe that we went all summer and didn't see more than four squirrels? In total that is! We would see as many as three a day during the fall but now that winter is here (OK so your calendar might not state as much but trust me, winter has arrived.), we are back to nada. This is so sad because my little girl loves to chase squirrels. However, my tiny, middle-of-a-city, no trees backyard is filled to the brim with noisy, pestering, eat the few tomatoes that actually grew this year squirrels. They will actually pluck the tomatoes and throw them at anyone walking down the stairs. They are violent! This is what I found when I walked outside the other day.... You are looking at a semi-frozen and never ripened green tomato, a gummy worm and a nut shell of sorts. Only the tomato came from my yard. The other two were so kindly brought in by the little buggers!

Then I got into my car and this is what I saw.....

Yes, that's snow. Not enough to coat the whole city but enough to make me realize that winter is officially here. To stay. Until April or May. Sniff!

Oooh, pretty layout!
It's cold here, too. No snow of course, but it's been down in the 20's! BRR!
My dogs love to chase squirrels. We have dozens of them!

Such nice presents... especially the gummi worm.

City squirrels are weird. There were squirrels everywhere in the country, but it wasn't until I moved to the city that I realized how odd they really are.
