Ex-cuuuuse Me?

Uploaded: October 31, 2009


Whaddya mean, you have no more nuts! Go to the store and GET some! You can't convince me that walnut trees went extinct overnight. Even if they did, there's pecans, and almonds, and macadamias...

Now go get some nuts before things start to get ugly around here!

Tess L. Yee November 01, 2009

Hahaha! Yes indeed, this fella got some more nuts. On a 'good' week, they go through about a pound of walnuts...which makes me sort of happy I don't have time to befriend another posse of these hungry rodents!

Thanks for all of the super comments, and for your concern...though I'm not certain if you were more worried about his lack of nuts, or the imminent danger I was in! #8092820

Is it a good thing that everytime I see a squirrel I think of you, Tess? Yes. Yesterday a friend proudly showed me his photo of a squirrel. I showed him your gallery, and now he is trying for a better photo. You've raised the bar on these beauties and are a wonderful inspiration to others. #8097310
