Wednesday’s Pictures #5.

Hi everyone!  I’m a little late getting my Wednesday’s Pictures posted.  But it’s one of those days.  A cold and windy winter day.  So today I thought we would go with some cute pictures of the many squirrels I have had around my deck and walkway.  I know that some people don’t like squirrels, and they can get to be a bit of a problem at times. But they still are cute and generally a joy to have around.  They are one of those “sunny” animals that bring a smile to me, and hopefully they will for you too.IMG_0083

My first squirrel at this place and I named him Squirk.  Yes, I know, it’s an odd name.😂IMG_3715

Above is Mama Chip, just look at that nice little smile she has for us.IMG_4100

Above is Chipper, my all time favorite squirrel.  She had 4 cute babies last year which were so much fun to watch playing on the deck.  She took them off somewhere and never came back.

There you have 3 of my favorite squirrels and 4 pics to enjoy, including the featured pic at the top, if you get to see that one, some people don’t.   And there have been lots more, so there will be more pics of them in the future.  Have a wonderful day everyone and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  1. Squirrels are so funny! I actually had a pet squirrel one time In the early 90’s, because the mother got killed. Tree workers working in our neighborhood rescued it and asked if we wanted to raise it. We kept him in a cage inside till he was ready to be released. He made a family and made a nest in a tree in the yard. He would climb down the tree and come visit us, but would never let us get too close. I guess he didn’t want to be captured again lol.

    • Hey, that’s cool! Surprised that he wouldn’t stay more friendly. Was it the larger grey squirrel or red squirrel? True, he might not have wanted to be back in a cage again. Like Muffin, she hates boxes because that’s how she was caught. Cats always love boxes, but not her!😂😹Thanks for stopping by!

      • Red squirrels are what we have, they’re small, the large ones are the grey squirrels, which are not always grey. But then, red squirrels are not really red, they are various shades of brown. Sigh. Yep, Muffin had a rough beginning. Have a great day!😃😺🌨❄

      • I really don’t know exactly if the squirrels are called grey squirrels around here… 🤔 I need to do some research I suppose…They look brown in color, but we have seen a few red squirrels here in the neighborhood. Not up really close. From a distance, these look red-tinted. But most are brown-looking around here.

      • You can just google it to find out the difference. Grey squirrels are much bigger than red squirrels, like a small cat with short legs, and they are generally gray or black. Enjoy your day!😁😸❄

    • Hi Simon! Things are getting better, but slowly. I can walk better,🚶‍♂️👍 but can’t stay on my feet very long yet. Pain is not quite so bad now.😳😬 Take it easy on that running, walking is better for you anyway.😀🚶‍♂️
      Yes, I like having the squirrels around. Another cold day here, -10, but feels like -17 with the wind.🥶 Colder than it should be for this time of year. Oh well.
      Enjoy your evening Simon, no running!😀🤪🙄

      • Hi Steve, I use to run a lot, feels lost now a days without running, cant burn my carbs, focusing on other workouts is a pain🙄 with one leg😒. But as you said walking is still better, grateful for what has left 🤗 Thanks for the advice Steve🥰. And, -17 🥶 Tat was cold, wish your season should get better upcoming days. Please take care of your leg. Its ok to take things slowly, as the recovery process should not get disturbed. Do take care of yourself steve🤗 I wont run for at least 6 months☺️😉

      • The recovery process is slow and so easy to try and speed things up, but that just makes things worse. I have to really watch that, when I start feeling a bit better then I do too much! I have to be very careful outside, it’s so slippery now.😲 Winter is here and things will get worse, colder and more snow.😬😳 But even in winter we get milder days. This weekend the temp will get up to -3,😃🌞 but back to cold Sunday night and all next week.😬🥶 Good time to stay inside and recover! 😁☕👍
