John Adams and My Pet Squirrel

So I fell asleep during the second episode of the John Adams miniseries. Apparently, that's how exciting I find the Declaration of Independence to be. Oh, I'm kidding... the Declaration of Independence is a real hoot. Kids, pay attention in school. I was just tired, that's all. I'm going to re-watch the episode tonight.

Anywho, when I woke up this morning, Sammy the squirrel was gone. (Thank you, Kristen, for suggesting the unisex name that stuck.) To be honest, I was a little sad to see his bed of leaves abandoned, and I didn't disturb it because I'm secretly hoping the little sucker will come back. I was looking forward to helping him give birth and rearing the children. I imagined myself feeding them nuts, giving them baths, teaching them how to water ski. But there won't be any of that now, unless he comes back.

Oh well... happy Sunday!

And now, for your viewing pleasure... Twiggy the Water Skiing Squirrel:
