Your Sunday Squirrel

There was a photo of this guy a few weeks ago.  This shot is way better.  It might even be calendar worthy.  It's that time again!  If the focus holds, he's a calendar squirrel.  If not, he's a very good Sunday Squirrel.  We shall see...

Closures

Well, two places closed recently.  Both were surprises.  Of course, I only noticed them very recently.  They are:
The Kushibar.  A very cool space with decent Asian fare and fairly terrible service.  It was never my neighborhood go-to place.  That would be Wann.  I've been to Kushibar maybe three or four times and I've been to Wann like three or four times in the last month. 
The Bear and the Bee.  It was a lunch place that I didn't get a solid chance to visit.  I did have a sandwich there once and it was good.  The sign said that it had been sold.  I believe it was also run by Marcus Johnson.  Dude, what is up??  Establish the empire already!  Yeah, so it's too bad.  I'm sorry that I'm not much of a lunch/sandwich person.

They Cut Down a Tree Across the Street

And it was unexpected.  I really wish they'd chop down the stupid cedar tree on my side of the street.  That's always my wish.  Every birthday.  Every Christmas.

Your Sunday Squirrel

Here's a nice fall squirrel taken just yesterday at Denny Park.  We were beset by many and this guy was particularly cooperative.  Thanks, squirrel!

Meanwhile, in Snohomish...

...geese really do fly in V-formation.  Unfortunately, they're flying east.  What does that mean? 

My Thoughts Exactly

I'm all for progress, but mowing down everything at once is slightly excessive.  At 7th & Bell.

Your Sunday Squirrel

I didn't get a chance to go to Denny Park this week, but this is a nice shot from a little while ago.  The light caught this fellow in a nice way for a fleeting moment.  He's not doing anything spectacular; he just looks kind of nice.  And that's why he's the Sunday Squirrel.

Meanwhile, in Snohomish...

The deer pretty much go up to the house.  This was one of three who made a visit.  There were also a few bunnies.  All very pastoral.

Your Sunday Squirrel

It's the squirrel's dilemma: he can stay where he is and get no peanut, but be safe from the scary predator.  OR, he can move a little closer to the scary predator for the peanut and possibly, cruel death.  What did he do?  Well, after a whole lot of advancing and retreating, he took the peanut.  And here's your proof:

Your Sunday Squirrel

I went to Denny Park yesterday and here's a squirrel:
 This little guy had his tongue hanging out the entire time.  He was very twitchy and rather frightened of peanuts.  I have a better shot of him, but I'll save that for later.
But the shot of the week is not mine.  Becko went to Denny Park this morning - without my permission - and snapped some wonderful shots, including this tough-looking customer.  Let's give her a round of applause!
