|Squirrel, party of one.|
Ah, November.'Tis a truly moveable feast for backyard beasts.
A few years back I noticed a gathering of squirrels taking great interest in our Halloween pumpkin on the front porch.
"How cute," I thought. "They're having a party."
I left them to their pumpkin fest.
Next time I ventured out to the porch I realized the not-so-cute part about squirrel gatherings:
They don't clean up after themselves.
I still leave our Halloween pumpkin out for the critters to enjoy. I've just moved the party to our back yard.
No fuss, no muss. (Or at least no muss that I have to clean up.)
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. May we all savor our momentary joys.
