A good beach day and a good park day. So I went to the park to hang out, tune in, turn on and cool off.
This vet had the right idea.
Some of the chic trend-setter squirrels were showing off their latest summer wear
Spunky was starting to getting her groove back.
Hmm... I've always liked cashews.
Then Riley the Cat made his appearance
Spunky forthwith removed herself to a comfortable spot in the tree right above me. There she is in the vee of the tree, where she can relax and watch everything.
Training Black PatchAnd I spent the rest of the time trying to teach ticks to my new little friend Black Patch
So named because of that nasty patch on his back.
Most of the other squirrels were up in the trees chattering away at Riley, but Black Patch was
right down there learning how to compete with the pigeons.
Surrounded by rivals
Studying the scene.
He didn't do too well. Lost quite a few brazil nuts, cashews and other small shelled nuts. But he was focused and attentive, and had impressive staying power.
I think that squirrel is going places!
