Fall and Squirrels

Mom says it's Fall. It must be because the squirrels have been trying to eat all of the walnuts in our trees and the shells are falling everywhere! Sometimes on our walks, the blackbirds drop walnut shells on our heads - mom says that's on purpose, that they're trying to tell us to stay away from their walnuts. Our neighborhood used to have a walnut grove and there are still a lot of walnut trees in our area. Our yard has 2 in the backyard and 2 in the front yard. So you can imagine the squirrel traffic! I have taken up squirrel chasing. They get so uppity thinking they can come right on to our patio and on the furniture. Finn and I chase them back up into the trees. They jump from the trees onto the roof of the guest house or into the ivy. It's pretty wild right now even on our walks. The squirrels are sitting all over the sidewalks. They're getting fat from the walnuts and I bet it's gonna slow them down. Some day we're gonna get one of those brazen furry creatures!!!

Glad that you are on high-alert for those pesky squirrels. Does your mom ever collect any of the nuts and use them in her baking?
love Rudy

Rudy - mom doesn't use the walnuts. Long time ago this used to be a walnut grove but now there are houses built here. People don't take care of their trees correctly and they have some disease that spreads. It's such a big area and so many trees that no one tree is free of it. So just the hungry squirrels get them.
