a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Saturday Centus 137

Writing challenge by Jenny Matlock...100 words...first person.  Thanks, Ms Jenny!

CHRISTMAS

I dedicate the holiday, Christmas, to myself and my family.

I am going to rise above the hiding and running from those silly dogs. I am going to walk upright on this day and declare, No More!

I am through sneaking up the side of the house, jumping to the roof of the next, clinging  to the light pole while jumping to the smoke house. Then, only then, am I able to enter the great store house of the pecan tree.

This day I will walk to the tree uncontested and enjoy my Christmas feast of pecans, unchallenged, unmolested.

NOT!
Happy Holidays from all the squirrel folks At The Farm.

Purely delightful, both the pictures and the words! I grew up with the sound of squirrels scampering across the roof above my bedroom in the mornings. I loved it then and I miss it now!

Very good... and oh, so true! Only Gypsy seems to understand critters in trees - she knows to look up for them. Poor Tucker, raised on the plains, where we don't have enough trees to encourage squirrels, is clueless. But, since he patrols the ground, your little squirrel would have to be twice as vigilant to make it across the yard!
