I feel pretty squirrely myself right now, so this could not come at a more perfect time! I also took a bunch more squirrel pictures this morning, but I haven’t downloaded them yet. I’m still caught between two versions of Adobe and I think I’m losing “it.” Like you know, IT.
I thought this would be a great place to add some squirrely pictures. They are so incredibly furry and cute, especially that tiny red one.
Scratchy the DJ Pony (9-29-2021) – What was the very first popular song you ever remember taking a liking to? I’m not talking about children’s songs or old traditional songs… but the kind of songs you’d hear on the radio. ♪♫♪♫
Johnny Mathis, “Wonderful, Wonderful.” I was 12 or 13. I bought it as a brand new 45 rpm and played it until the grooves disappeared.
Psychotic Emotionally Challenged Zebra (10-7-2021) – Are you one of those people who get queasy at sight of blood, or could you watch an open heart surgery?
I have had open heart surgery and oh so many others. Also, hey, I was a mother. If you don’t get to see at least a moderate amount of blood and gore while raising your kids, you are probably over-protective.
Big Scrat of the “Big House” (10-14-2021) – Who or what do you feel is lurking right behind you, just waiting to ambush you and make your life a living hell (or “heck” for those with delicate sensibilities)?
Microsoft. Possibly Google, too.
(10-21-2021) Sparklepony “The Put Upon” – What is the gaudiest thing you have ever worn?
Garry bought me a jacket once that required sunglasses to focus. I wore it once, then quietly let it get old in a corner of my closet. I have no idea what possessed him. It certainly was unique.
The Squirrel Children, A SYW question themed around the
brats Mama’s Lil’ Angels – Fess up! What was something you did as a child that got you into BIG trouble?
I ran away from home. I was 17. So I waited a year, got married, and then I left. I had very good reasons to go and few reasons to stay. It was what we call a “jail break” marriage — two people who need to get out of their homes and make a new one without parents. It lasted 13 years and wasn’t such a bad idea. He was a good guy. We just got to a point where we sort of outgrew each other. I’m not sure most couples are geared up for 75 years of matrimony. Or any marriage for any amount of time.
What are you looking forward to as the festive season approaches?
Surviving it and not going broke!
