What’s all the fuss about?


I heard some Hellacious  (Yes, that’s a word. At least in Maine.) chattering the other afternoon.





Looked out back…




And saw momma red squirrel perched on the plant hanger.




She was flicking her tail and screeching like a Hollywood starlet who ran out of Botox.




She screeched so hard a seed fell out of her mouth.




It only took me a minute to figure out why.




The other visitor.




No worries readers, momma escaped unharmed.

  1. River, I love all of the animal drama that goes on outside your house! We get a lot of animal drama inside our house (2 dogs, 4 cats.) There’s always someone needing attention or who’s in a snit. Fun. Drama queens one and all. Mona


      1. Thank you! I haven’t joined this site, just following you. Ken reminded me yesterday of you being here and I remembered I used to follow you. I hope you’ve been well over the years.

      2. I’m still there. I’m thinking its on its last legs, but who knows. For a change its quiet there and people are getting along….for now. But that can change on a dime as you well know.

      3. It’s been dying for years and I just couldn’t take the mean spiritedness anymore. You should start a blog here, it’s an awesome site with great people!


      4. I’m not too much for blogging, just very sparingly and more of a reader/commentor. I know a few from there are here as well. Maybe one day, I’ll actually join.

  2. I always know when a cat is prowling around my house because the squirrel alarm will go off so loud I can hear it inside the house with a fan running. As much as I love squirrels, it’s so hard to choose sides here, because that fox is so damn cute…

      2. I’ll tell you what my mother used to tell me…. must not have been very important.
        Always made me want to say, “Oh, I remember. Your car is on fire.“
