Stare Down

24 Jan

Bongo with a Frisbee in his mouthI went out in my yard today as innocent as can be.

All I wanted to do was play with my Frisbee.

Oh yeah, and take care of other things too.

When all of a sudden my attention was drawn upward.

Do you believe it?

This pesky squirrel was sitting on a wire staring down at me.





Squirrel on Wire web

And we sat there having a staring contest.

I’ll get that pesky squirrel yet!

At least I won the contest.

That pesky squirrel couldn’t hold out very long.

And he…

Squirrel running down a wire

Ran on down the wire.

What a chicken!

Wait. Umm. I mean –

Chickens are good.

To eat that is.

That squirrel ain’t no chicken.

He’s a …

He’s a…

Scaredy cat. That’s what he is!

    Bongo, squirrels are good to eat, too. They don’t taste like chicken, but they’re not bad eats. 😉

      FleaByte, if I can figure out how to get that pesky squirrel down from that wire I think I’ll have a taste.

    Is that the same pesky squirrel you have mentioned before, or is it a friend of his? Cheeky monkey…

      Patrecia, all squirrels look alike to me. And for sure, they’re all pesky.

    maybe he wants to be your friend but is intimidated by your handsomeness.

      Walter, aren’t squirrels the peskiest? If they’d ever come down I’d give them what for. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

      Little Binky, that squirrel just wants to harass me. Maybe you could come over next time that squirrel is in my tree and go after it for me.

      Kevin, squirrels are sneaky. They make everybody like them with how cute they are – but they are evil. They harass us dogs every chance they get.

      Ginger, that sounds like a tasty meal. I wonder how I could convince my person we need a flame thrower in the backyard.

      Thanks Dalton. Any pesky squirrels showing up in my yard had better watch it.

    Oh Bongo, those squirrels have nasty mouths on them, don’t they! I chase them right out of my yard because I don’t like what they say & then they flip me their tails. But you’re right – they’re just bully scaredy cats.

      Lola, those pesky squirrels act really brave when they’re up in a tree or on a wire. But get them down where we can reach them and they scamper.

    Maybe he wanted to play frisbee with you… or maybe steal it. Next time, you look him in the eye with that brave and fearless look! Show him who’s the boss! 🙂

      Marina, he probably wanted to steal my frisbee. Those pesky squirrels are never up to any good.
