Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Squirrel Assassins

I have evidence that squirrels are trying to kill my dog.

a) I have no nut trees on my property.

b) Whole pecans are showing up in my back yard right under the "Squirrel Monorail" furnished by utility companies.

c) Squirrels sit on the SquirMono and see their deadly adversary (Cooper) jumping up and down barking and snarling and have watched his behavior to learn that he is a true omnivore - one squirrel told the others at an emergency local squirrel session, "I've seen him, he tries to eat basketballs and empty coffee cans and hippos - he must be 'elimi-nut-ed', do I see a show of tails wagging in agreement?",

A flurry of furry fans the meeting room,

"do I have a volunteer assassin?"


"what a bunch of chickens"; exclaims the leader, "guess we'll have to get outside help for this job"

Photo Notes: The second photograph, of the squirrel with the nut in his mouth, was taken right by the backyard gate that is in the first photograph. There was no editing or "Photo-Shop-ing" of the photographs except for cropping. The second photograph was taken several weeks after I wrote the original story.

The picture of the squirrel with the nut in his mouth is a real picture that I shot from my backyard right by the gate. Absolutely NO photo tricks or computer "magic" were used to create this photo. - esbb

You are right Mr ESB about the similarity of your Squirrel to the one I took a photo of yesterday. Maybe like all professional assassins after his failed effort he quickly left the country to make a new life in Britain under an assumed name.

I will use the same comment on my own post to ensure continuity is maintained across the great Ocean.

Rob: I had another photograph at the top of the blog post showing the nuts on the ground by the gate, but Blogger lost a bunch of my photos suddenly and they neVer came back.
