I Am Not Sure What Is More Disturbing...

... the number of dancing squirrel vids on YouTube, or the unsettling resemblance to what is going on in my garden at this very moment:

Have not seen the ribbon snake this Spring. He is probably as horrified as I am at all this nut gathering exuberance.

Your garden is full of fallen oak leaves? You said you cleaned them up already!

Credit where it is due..... they dance better than me.

William sends.

Do you know, last weekend I was *still* cleaning up stray oak leaves? Unbelievable...

*shaking head*

Not unbelievable - they wait for you to finish, then drop a few spares just out of spite and to see if you are paying attention. Like the bois'd'arc (aka Osage orange) tree in Missouri that almost gave me a concussion a few years ago. Those "oranges" are hard when they hit a lightly-hatted head!

Nut gathering or gathering of nuts? Inquiring minds...

Death to all squirrels! Bushy-tailed rats...

Really -- (sniff) -- I think your readers are entitled to humor on a more sophisticated level.

We had our 27th anniversary last week. To this day, my husband can crack me up by making the raw chicken dance on the cutting board. I'm only sorry he can't make two chickens do a synchronized dance.

That is where photoshop is your friend. Have him do the 'Chicken in the Raw' dance and then do a split screen reverse.

You have to uphold the honor of VC!

There's honor?

"...making the raw chicken dance..."
It is with the utmost pride that, based on this talent, the PotUS extends to your husband an offer for the position of Czar of the Directorate of Congress and the Press.

Get your gun, Grim. There's some possums looking threatening.

I'm stealing that! I may repay you by sending you some awesome squirrel porn I shot last year (the kids yelled at me to "put away that !@#$ed telephoto lens and let the poor beasts have some privacy") if I can find the pictures on the backup to my now defunct old computer.
