Let me have a peek
During the last three weekends I have live-trapped and released, across the bay, 20 red squirrels.
Today I came out onto the deck, tip toeing quietly in the morning silence beside the lake, to enjoy my first cup of coffee.
There, in my spot at the lakeside bar, sat the big boss of the neighborhood squirrels.
“Pull up a chair,” he said. “I want to have a little talk with you.”
The cheeky little devil asked if he could take a peek inside my robe.
I suggested he might like a peek at a plate of peanut butter inside the little wire mesh box.
He made the logical choice and went for the peanut butter platter.
Voila! Squirrel #21 is now awaiting his Uber ride across the lake in my sleek marine limousine.
