Sept. 14 - Lisa's Musings (on nature) and Every Day Life

I was in Allmendinger Park today and spotted this squirrel.

It seems that Mother Nature has been calling to me this week and far be it from me to not heed her call.

So, as I started through the park, I spied this squirrel and started shooting from a distance. Then got closer and closer. And closer.

He or she, not sure which, was eating a nut and it wasn't until I was pretty darn close that I was even noticed.

There seems to be a huge difference between country squirrels and city squirrels.

The country variety would never let me get this close. They work hard for those choice nuts, fruits and berries. They'll spend hours figuring out how to get into my bird feeders to get the black-oil seed.

The city squirrels are a different breed. They get so many handouts that they seem to expect every human to have one for them.

Do you think there are Republican and Democrat squirrels?
