Stinker Squirrels

When we first moved here I thought it was so great that we had cute little squirrels running around everywhere.
until they starting eating all of my decorations for every single holiday. We finally gave up one of our three pumpkins that they completely hollowed out on their own. We took it off of our front porch and put it next to their favorite tree. Those stinkers!

Like Jill, I have never seen a black squirrel before. Spooky!! We've had squirels do that to us before too!

I think it would be like living in the Snow White movie to have squirrels living all around me like that. Here it is gophers, and I don't find them nearly as charming!

Those darn squirrels! One ate thru Dean's backpack last year to get to his lunch. They're crazy! Can't wait to see your Halloween pics!

Oh my! Who knew they loved pumpkins? I've never seen black squirrels either.

I thought the squirrels on the UW campus were cute when we first moved to Seattle, too, until they started following me around and running up my legs to try to get to my lunch...

our squirrels are stinkers, too.

last year they ate the eyes out of cassie's jack-o-latern. then started on her nose.

ellie's survived-- she said it was b/c hers had a scary face and they were afraid of it!

I have never seen a black squirrel (though seasonally appropriate). We just have garden variety brown here. But they are ALL stinkers and mischief makers.

Squirrels are just rats with puffy tails. They were a plague when we lived in Texas.

We are free of squirrels in New Mexico.

For some reason those black squirrels creep me out! Especially the one diving inside the pumpkin. Stinkers indeed!

I did not know there was black squirrels, we have squirral all around us, but they really don't bug us too much.
