There's a Squirrel in the Kalamazoo!


  1. I can't wait to show this to the kids when they get home from school! I cringed when you stuck your arm up there, all I could think of was when that squirrel came flying out of the tree on Christmas Vacation LOL! Can't wait to see how this turns out.

    P.S. Hubby came home yesterday with a new respirator and 2 extra organic vapor cartridges, I'll get them out my next trip to do errands! We always refer to armageddon as "squirrel attack" so we don't have people thinking we're nuts, but with a respirator and your video of the squirrel and your remote locale, it seems fitting to say we may now actually be under squirrel attack! Survivalists take note!

  2. Oh, you are (your hubby is) THE BEST! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I owe you! (If you send it any way other than the USPS, please use my business address - I hate for FedEx and our wonderful UPS drivers to have to come all the way out here in the winter!) I'll post a picture of myself in my new Taj MaCoop turn-out gear. :)

    And, I wasn't too worried about grabbing (trying to grab) the squirrel . . . I've already had a chimpunk (ha ha - typo, but I think I'll leave it!) bite me when I rescued him from the sunroom*, but I had gloves on. Ungrateful *#@!

    *One of the cats had brought it in during the summertime . . . completely alive, of course.
