My Mom has A LOT of nerve. One of my most favorite things in the ENTIRE world is peanut butter! I like it crunchy, plain, natural (or not). Give me peanut butter and I’m a happy camper.
Most of you probably don’t know that my Mama LOVES squirrels! She is insane about them. I have no idea why. I think they are pesky, taunting little guys with tails that look like they should be used to clean toilets, but my Mama LOVES THEM!
She loves them so much that years ago the neighbors reported her because she fed them too much. Squirrels were climbing up our balcony (we are on second floor) and some of them even made nests in the rafters up in the attic of our apt/condo complex.
So what do I see her do this morning?
She was on the balcony partaking of a horrible habit she has (that I will not mention). I hear her say “Oh noooo…a squirrel just came over on the fence and he is looking up at me and I have no wheat bread! I HAVE to give him SOMETHING!!”
That was cause for high alert on my part.
She came in, I knew something AWFUL was about to happen so I began spinning and barking hoping to divert her attention from the squirrely intruder.
My protests fell on deaf ears. She headed to the refrigerator, poking around looking for something to feed the mooch and what did she decide on? MY PEANUT BUTTER!! The complete and utter gall of her! That’s MINE! I don’t share my peanut butter with anyone (other than Mom and Dad) but especially not FOREST DWELLING CREATURES!
****IMPAWTANT NOTE!!! The squirrel in the photos isn’t the real “intruder” but he is a reasonable facsimile thereof! The squirrel in the photos is actually “Skippy Sheeskin” from Facebook fame! Mom happens to LOVE Skippy and is a friend of his on Facebook and his Mommy kindly allowed her to use these fantastic photos!!! Isn’t he adorable? (my Mom said to say that, I don’t think he is very adorable!). You can visit Skippy on Facebook by clicking here!
