Nothing better than getting together with friends and relaxing by the lake in Adirondack Chairs! Summer is the best time around here to catch up with friends. Unfortunately now and then an unwelcome guest shows up.
Yesterday I went out to run errands and when I returned this is what the screen looked like on my window over the sink.....
I followed a trail of knocked over items from the window sill and found my package of rolls for dinner....
Not a doubt we had had a visitor.....the furry kind with a long gray tail! So I took my 8 pound 16 year old poodle (who is deaf and mostly blind) and commanded her to search the house. That didn't work out as planned so I searched - shaking curtains, flipping furniture - no luck. I hoped that meant Mr. Squirrel left the building with his takeout.
I headed to the garage to tell the Big Guy he had a screen to repair and he said the day before he chased a squirrel down from the screen. He couldn't believe it had jumped from the hydrangea bush to the house. Well that squirrel was brave enough to defy the Big Guy the next day and rip open that screen! While we were talking I noticed a squirrel come out from the hedges and head up the hydrangea bush bold as can be! We chased him away but I think I heard it laughing at the sight of two gray haired old folk charging across the lawn!
The screen has been repaired, the bush has been trimmed we are on the lookout for a fat sassy squirrel! Some guests are harder to discourage than others.....
