The Demon and the Squirrel

I saw some bright yellow goldfinches earlier, so I stepped out to see if I could get a few photos.

They flew away, but I saw a squirrel at the bottom of the feeder.

Then I changed the focus.

Oh my!  That squirrel is mighty foolish.  What is it thinking?!  (Why didn't I notice it before?!)

So I moved a bit and got a couple more similar shots, but without the obstructions.

What I didn't expect was what happened next.

Oh no!  Run, squirrel!

Apparently the squirrel has more guts than I do.

Demon overlord is disgruntled by the lack of respect.

Squirrel was unfazed, so Demon slunk off to investigate something smaller and more easily intimidated.

I would not recommend squirrel do this with Hunting Overlord, I assure you.

White cat chased a squirrel earlier today - there was quite a convoluted path across the yard - standoff, circles, run, pause, circle - but squirrel got into the crabapple and then the kitty was coaxed to come in for treats.

But yes, I think Demon plays much more than she intends any harm.

Very interesting pics!   Our yardcat Sammy is so fat and well fed by Mrs. Baby that he lies under the feeder oblivious to the birds and squirrels around him.   I did, however, have a shock the other day when I heard a commotion and saw a raccoon grab a squirrel and take off with the poor thing hanging from its mouth.   Freaked me out and I wish I hadn't seen it.

      From the clip on Jinger’s instastory, Jeremy is there with her and seems pretty pleased with himself.

      Isn’t he always pleased with himself? I swear he acts so paternal with Jinger it makes me want to vomit.

      I can't believe they're already up to 14 grandchildren in less than five years. That's gotta be a fundie record- even the Bates family had only gotten to 10 grandkids within the same period of time. The Mortons had 12.

      Yeah the 4 couples that got married in a 4 month period all got pregnant pretty soon and then just kept having them at regular intervals. Allison may catch up to the others pretty quickly.

      Thanks for sharing your trip down memory lane, @PumaLover! Now I'm wondering if I've ever visited the "deepest regions of my being"  and what's actually down there.  I don't think I'll find what Elizabeth Elliott thinks should be there. 

      I love the Everything's Coming Up Roses and that that the menu names each dish.  It seems so...effusively Southern. Sun Splashed Salad! Variegated Veggies!  So. Much. Alliteration

      I googled Betty Boop potatoes and came across a recipe for crispy potato slices with melted cheese and bacon.

      Utterly bizarre that Bradrick! has set up shop in my home town. 

      I upvoted your post, but really wish there was that facebook "hug and comfort"  emoji as an option.  You might run into him at Walgreens!  

      I suspect that Bradrick! has a pleasant business persona.  No idea what his personal beliefs are these days. Probably still a very conservative Christian but not fundie.  Has he remarried?

      Behold the manly wide-legged stance, now improved with one foot elevated on a rock. 
       

      Bradrick’s plan to fundraiser for community benefit (ambulance district support) impresses positively.  And the guy has some decent success. Who wanted the divorce, again?

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.
