This is one of the squirrels that's currently trying to build a nest on our screened deck. I caught him/her running away to a neighbor's tree. I tried stapling more screen material to the area, but the stupid squirrels chewed through the new screen and brought in more grass for their nest. I've caught 2 of them ~ I'm thinking male/female. I certainly don't want baby squirrels on the deck. Next step is to live trap them and take them for a drive. Now to round up a trap this weekend.....
Last Sunday was the Cub Scout Blue and Gold banquet. It was held at a local banquet hall (they clean up the mess!) The entertainment was a Native American storyteller. He brought in hides for the kids to sit on, and lots of artifacts. I was amazed at how quietly all the kids sat and listened. They really enjoyed listening to him. The totem poles were a painting project the boys did before the banquet. It's milk jugs painted and put on poles for display. Made for a nice photo op!
My youngest, James (2nd from the left) crossed over from Cub Scout to Boy Scouts. Why can't he just stay little??
I finished my rug, and will get a photo tomorrow (hopefully). I'm just a little behind on uploading photos and videos ~ and trying to figure out how to remove the squirrels!
