Your Sunday Squirrel

OK, so I recorded an album this week. Yeah, a whole album. God knows when it'll be out. If the sales of Greater Seattle are any indication of how this one will do, it won't especially matter. All I can tell you is that it's got better tunes. Oh, and it doesn't have a concept, so it's just songs. I plan other concept albums in the future, but none of them will be about Seattle. That subject is, as they say, a dry socket. But I feel really good about this effort.

Anyhow, here is a squirrel from last week. He didn't have a dramatic head wound. He was just a squirrel who did squirrel-things, like hanging upside down and eating a peanut.

OK, so yesterday I was coming back from Lake Union via Denny Park and I saw a squirrel, gave him a peanut and went for my camera. I turned it on and...nothing. I had left the battery at home. But he was in such an iconic squirrel-pose that I had to whip out my cell phone and get a shot. When he was done with the first peanut, I gave him a second and he hopped atop another rock. What are the odds of that? So there you have it; same squirrel, different rock. Please excuse the zoom-blurriness from my crappy cell camera. Enjoy.

The squirrels, they keep a-comin'. And no one can stop them.

Unbelievable (almost). What shots! With your artistic eye, the quality of the camera doesn't make that much difference. Keep on a'snappin.
