Well, let me try to explain how proud the Pres is of his "nuts."
He beams when he sees the clusters beginning to form in the Spring, swears that he'll "get them before anything else gets 'em" and tells me that he's "going to keep an eye on 'em."
Bear in mind that when I suggested that we "net the nuts," it was deemed a crazy, senseless idea and a waste of time.
I will not tell you what I thought when he laughed and scoffed at my idea, however what I will tell you is that...
Because the other night, as I cleaned up after supper, I noticed that a few branches in the largest of his nut trees were moving. No...it was not the wind as you can see the wind chime is perfectly still, right?
Do you see what is balancing on the lower branches? "Honey, you might want to go outside, " I said.
"For what?" I'm watching the news and doing my puzzle."
"Well, Hon the squirrels are all over your nuts."
"Really? Hmmmm...there are plenty. I'm not worried."
Sure enough, as cleaned up, I watched the raid occur. And let me tell you they had a ball!! Fixated on their actions, I couldn't help but smile through the whole process...LOL!!
Dangling and grabbing just about every single cluster, each squirrel would hit the ground, climb the fence and vanish into the woods. The pair worked right up until dusk.
And me? I'm still laughing...:) because as of this writing, there are two nuts left on the tree.
And the Pres? Well, his puzzle is finished...and so are his nuts.
just seeing, saying and sharing...
with you and those at
