Standoff? Don't come near my lunch!

Rocky's Lunch

With fall comes a little commotion in the oak tree. A frenzy of furry chases up and down the oak by Rocky and his girlfriend. It's only right for a guy to share his best eating spot! They dine, they bury some for later, they allow me to get close but not too close without giving me a good chewing. And...while I chuckle as they scold me with their chatter and little barks, I must admit I have envisioned prying a squirrel off of my face if I get too close.

Hey when I was a kid, I used to feed them out of my hand. I really like the squirrels but a friend of mine just thinks they are big hairy rats. LOL
