I forgot to mention that on Sunday, I was by the front door, getting ready to go out, when I happen to glance through the glass and to my surprise, I saw a grey squirrel sitting on my porch mat !
It looked at me, and I looked at it, then it fled. Of course, it all happened much too fast to even think about getting a photo, which is a shame.
I am amazed.
I have lived in this town for 38 years, and this is only the second time I have seen a squirrel. The last time was eight years ago, and about 3 miles away from our home !
We do have quite a few trees near our house, and there is extensive woodland about half a mile higher up the hill, but this is a densely populated part of our town although we are in close proximity on one side to open farmland.
I know the saying that "little things please little minds" , but it was great to see a squirrel again :-)
