Greetings friends and fans! This is The Daily Bone and I'm your diligent doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.
2021 was a tough year, that's for sure! That terrible covid virus is still around and my ghostwriter, being a nurse, has to always be on guard for it at work. To wrap it all up with a big, sad bow, not only did our Oma pass away, but one of GW's coworkers who had just retired, and another coworker's mom also passed!
But I'm not going to let the whole year end without a little bit of levity! I have a couple funny squirrel stories for you! Here are a few pictures of one of the more acrobatic squirrels trying to break into our squirrel-proof birdie feeders.
|Hey! Where are the seeds?|
He picked a bad time for his raid, since the feeders were almost empty that day!
|This one looks like it has some seeds.|
Another day, alias Twinkletoes III decided he was going for the window feeder. He jumped up there several times even with my ghostwriter looking straight at him, and me barking too!
"Hey dogface! Yeah, and your ugly human too! It's the end of December and there still isn't any fresh suet in this here feeder! I'll have you know, that with interest, you now owe me 20,000 peanut butter sandwiches, AND at least as many hunks of suet, preferably the kind with seeds and fruit in it!"
I replied, "OK, sure. I'll have Dad do that right away!"
Hope you have a Happy New Year!
Thank you very much, Ingrid, for the beautiful memorial picture of our Oma. And thank you to all of our blogger friends who gave their kind condolences.
