Do not laugh at the squirrel

But I did.
From my study window, I look out over part of the roof and the ugly but useful white fiberglass sheltering part of the deck. (Shown through the window screen, which I won't take off because it'll take me an hour and much swearing to put back on.)
I saw a squirrel walk casually across the roof and out of sight. A little later when I was away from my desk I heard scrabble, scrabble, scrabble, thud like a cartoon. 
By the time I ran down the stairs and out to the deck, there was no squirrel in sight. It must have fallen from the fiberglass to the deck here:

while the dogs were inside. Otherwise I would have heard ga-thud, ga-thud, woo woo woo as the dogs gave chase.


  1. You may have missed this one, but you can see the drunken squirrel on YouTube.

  2. Squirrels are my favorite to chase. Your squirrel is very lucky.

  3. That's exactly what smuckers would of done gave chase.

  4. One lucky squirrel!
