Love My Squirrels
by: Barbara

My husband and I both just love our squirrels. On one of our coldest winter mornings I peeked out and there were ten squirrels, both black and gray ones running around, and waiting on me. This morning, I peeked out and there were four. One was sitting on the fence looking at the door. They are very smart and cute. I love the birds, too!
