3 more sleeps until the move!
When I was packing up the contents of my bookshelves I found a baggie of peanuts I had tucked away there for when Buddy the Nut Slut comes to visit. I call all squirrels Buddy the Nut Slut. It is just easier. I get squirrels at my window and in the past have fed them peanuts. I was a total sucker. Then the little bastards started coming right in and raiding my fruit bowl. Seriously! Yoshi just sat there and watched them do it too. And then they started eating my flowers and then the actual wooden window boxes. So I stopped feeding them because they were abusing the system. You feed one squirrel and then the next thing you know its whole posse is shaking you down every day.
Instead of throwing out the nuts I had a soft moment and put them all on my fire escape. About 4 handfuls. I swear those peanuts where gone in a matter of minutes. There must have been a stake-out or something. Gone! Whoosh!
A couple days later I was talking to my next door neighbour about the flowers coming up in the front yard and she said, “The squirrels are sure busy. I have been finding peanuts EVERYWHERE buried in the yard and in the flower pots. Millions of them.”
Hee hee hee hee hee!!!
