A day at the circus starring the amazing Mr Squirrel
One day last week I was doing dishes & noticed on tree branch swaying back & forth even tho it wasn't windy
Then I spotted this little guy
After watching for a moment I realized he was planning an attack on the bird feeders
He dove from the tree branch to the clothes line & for a couple minutes I got to watch his skills of running back & forth while upside down.
Then he begun sizing up the distance between him & the feeder.
This was right before he made a jump for it & missed.
He picked himself up & ran up the tree chattering angrily to himself
He entertained me for an hour & one time dropped from a high branch & hit the feeder so hard on the way down I thought he had knocked himself out. Less then 5 seconds later he was planning another attack!
I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic. Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play. I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way. One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car". I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.
I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.
About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty! My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly. As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.
After a long winter I went back to work on Thurday & as usual it was crazy with the phone ringing off the wall! The weather wasn't that great but golfers in the northeast are like caged animals who are finally free! We had good weather predicted for the weekend & I was scheduled to work both days. After a very long day Saturday I finally got done around 8 pm & was meeting Popster & Jess in Ballston Spa at a surprise birthday party for Jeff & Colby. Jess met me in the parking lot & said she was leaving as she had also worked all day. She showed me her arm where she had been bitten by a cat earlier at work. She had gone to urgent care & they gave her antibiotics & she went back to work.
Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up. I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.
