Oh, Not Again.

The squirrels are moving like crazy in our neighborhood, hiding their winter supply of nuts absolutely everywhere! Squirrels with big, bushy tails. I've been told that both are signs of a harsh winter. I haven't gotten my hands on any persimmons yet, but I've heard they all sport "spoons". Every old wive's tale that predicts the weather is pointing to a repeat of last year. The Farmer's Almanac concurs. I'm already dreading it.

We have a huge pine tree which is squirrel central to build cozy nests. Abby will sit out there gazing into the tree for a good hour. Watching them. Abby does not approve of squirrels!

The squirrels are everywhere down here, too.

Am i sensing a revolution?
