Your Sunday Squirrel

This is a guy from yesterday.  He was really quite nice and not-quick-moving.  He's not really as gray as the photo would have you believe.  The camera tends to establish a dominant shade and then bends the rest of the picture to its will.  Anyhow, I hope to run into this fellow again, as he's quite good at standing still.

Your Sunday Squirrel

OK, all the squirrels at Denny Park really are on vacation.  I went by yesterday and there were none - lots of bums, but no squirrels.  This fellow is from a few weeks ago and, as always, I hope I haven't posted him in the past.  If I have, apologies.  If I haven't, enjoy.

Your Sunday Squirrel

Just when I thought all the quality squirrels were on vacation, this guy crosses my path.  I managed to persuade him down from his (very small) tree for a peanut.  He was quite personable for a squirrel and I got a few good shots before my camera's battery expired.  Enjoy!

I'm Sure This Isn't a Problem...

A public service announcement from Tia Lou:
I mean, if they've gotta post a sign on the outside of the building...

I know what you're thinking: "But if I don't grab them, how will they know that I want to drag them to my cave??"  Answer: buy them a drink.  Remember, grabbing is a no-no.  But politeness is probably optional.  Chicks dig jerks.  But not grabby jerks, apparently.

Your Sunday Squirrel

OK, so I'm a day late.  Sorry about that.  I know that some people enjoy starting their week with a squirrel.  I don't blame them.  Here's this guy.  He's got some momentary attitude.  He looks like he means business.  He really doesn't.  He's just a squirrel.  He likes peanuts and climbing trees and that's about it. 

You know, I was at the Torchlight Parade last week.  I took pictures and all that.  It was not a good parade.  I blame the Sequester.  Or the city of Seattle.  I usually hang out until the dragon shows up.  You know what I'm talking about.  The International District has their own dragon and it's tremendous.  I stood there for an hour and a half, pretty much bored out of my skull - except for Gary Payton as grand marshal - waiting for the dragon to show.  I finally left, disappointed and disgruntled.  It was the worst Torchlight Parade ever.  Damn you, Sequester.
