Well, she was just seventeen
You know what I mean
And the way she looked
Was way beyond compare
So how could I dance with another
Ooh, when I saw her standing there? - The Beatles, 1963
Honestly, the last thing we need in our yard is more squirrels, but that is exactly what is going to happen if what I saw today is any indication! Yes, it was a case of squizzer-love with him in hot pursuit while she led him on a merry chase. And in the process of his pursuit (which was all over the woods, garden and patio) he had to deal with other suitors, too. Not surprising, though - I mean, really, look at that tail!
I'm still coughing up a storm and slightly feverish. If the cough isn't better tomorrow I will have to bite the bullet and see my doctor. But, I'm hoping today is the "big purge". We'll see.
It was quite mild out this morning, so I spent a little time in the hide, airing myself out and clicking random shots. It was good medicine, although I was tired in what seemed to be no time at all.
One more photo of the fuzzy gray Lothario and his maiden in Extra. Frankly, I think he's past the bounds of acceptable behavior here, but I'll let you be the judge...
