Aren't squirrels the cutest?

So, I was just outside having a smoke (yeah yeah, I am down to ultra lights) and I see a squirrel at the other end of my yard.

I loved your story. Kids are so adorable. Especially in small doses.
Update 6: Apple

Some of the most loving animals I've known have been rats!

Update 7: "Squirrel whisperer"! ROTFLMAO!

FYI, this is the 4th posting of yours I've reported today. One needn't be a feminist to see how totally UNCOOL your conduct is.
