Here's a guy I ran into yesterday at Denny Park. There were tons of squirrels running around - at least a dozen. They were everywhere. I ran out of peanuts early on, so there was nothing I could offer them. This fellow got the last one. As luck would have it, I thought this shot calendar-worthy, so he is Mr. December. I guess what I'm trying to say is: THE 2014 SUNDAY SQUIRREL CALENDAR IS DONE!! I made it yesterday. This is the fourth calendar I've made and I always forget how to do it, so it generally takes most of the day. It just doesn't get any easier. I thought that perhaps this year, I would switch from Cafe Press to Zazzle (a ridiculous name if there ever was one), but Zazzle prices are far higher. So there. Anyhow, like I said, the squirrel calendar is totally ready. It's only $16.99. That's pretty good. Just think about how many trips I took to Denny Park to get all these. I'll give you a hint: a lot. Here is a sampling of the participating squirrels:
You can get it here. There isn't a bad squirrel for the entire year.

Today they closed my entire block in order to hoist some very large piece of equipment onto the roof of a neighboring building. They even used a big crane and all. Did I get a picture of it. No, I did not. Instead, here are some otters having fun with pumpkins:

Well, they seem to have worked around the clock on Saturday, but they finished. First, they blocked off 3rd and brought in a really big crane:
Then they lined up each component-unit thing:
And then they stacked them on top of each other:
The stack's bigger now, since I took this shot yesterday morning. In fact, they're done. It's a fairly ugly building, that's for sure, and it looks like it was designed by an adherent to some more tractable version of Marxist-Leninism, but it's mostly done now. Enjoy your new home, modular people!
