  • The odd thing about living in the country is that squirrels are rarely the nuisance they can be to urban folk. I think country squirrels are wilder than city ones, but it also turns out that we are experiencing two different squirrel species all together. 

    Acorns, walnuts, chestnuts and hickories certainly qualify as a worthwhile winter stash for a squirrel, but they also sustain themselves on other fruiting bodies like plums, paw paws, serviceberries, holly berries, mulberries, crabapples, elderberries and the fruit from dogwoods and black gums.

  • Already, I’d learned valuable lessons. Preparation is essential, shortcuts aren’t always shorter and rubber snakes look real! When I pulled back the cover and saw the creature, I almost fainted. Imagine my surprise when Chloe grabbed the snake, kissed it and asked if we could keep it! Score one for Chloe – joke on me! My first instinct was anger, but I realized it was a prank. I had learned one lesson long ago – to laugh at myself! Besides, I’d been the prankster before! I chuckled and wrapped the snake around my neck.
