There once was a squirrel, Squirrel #1, we’ll call him
Who saw John was offering peanuts
So he decided to climb down – very quickly
And take a peanut from John’s hand
And continued to do so – and munched for a good 10 minutes
Until -dun dun dun -squirel #2 arrived
Squirrel #1 quickly hid his peanut, acting as if nothing was going on.
Except squirrel #2 was no dummy, he knew what was going on.
Squirrel # 1 chirped (he actually made noises) “NO WAY, these are MY peanuts” and took TWO – just to make sure squirrel #2 didn’t grab one – then chased squirrel #2 off.
Luckily John is nice, so he followed squirrel #2 around the gate, and fed her there
And they both were waiting for us at the front door when we left the house 15 minutes later.
I suppose we have patio resident Dyben squirrels. Hopefully they’ll at least keep the darn snake away.
