My New Neighbors

A bunch of these critters moved in across the way. Their mailbox reads “Eastern Fox Squirrels.” I’ve tried to introduce myself to them, but they remain standoffish.Surfside Squirrels

    Mmm… soup!

    How could you put that cute thing in soup?! I know that squirrels sometimes may just be rats in fur coats to some people, but- Man!- they have good taste in fashion and know how to present themselves stylishly.

    Mmm… stylish soup!

    Oh! Go eat a gopher!

    Okay, I won’t make soup. I see that would be a waste. It’s obvious that what you’re REALLY saying is that it’s A-OK for me to make fur apparel out of your squirrel neighbors. When Santa comes next year, Miranda might just find a pair of squirrel mittens under the yule tree!

    Never underestimate the power of soup.

    By the way, I don’t recommend Campbell’s new addition to their unfortunately-named “Chunky” brand – Gory Gopher. Stick with Progresso’s Possum Noodle. Have you seen the new Andersen’s variety? Split Pea with Prarie Dog. Haven’t tried it yet.
