Ninja Squirrels

The squirrels here are really entertaining.  They like to mess with poor Ava, who is generally sitting on the back of our couch looking outside.  They seem to taunt her endlessly.  I'm not sure if they have nothing better to do, or if they are trying to intimidate her. 

Let me show you what we are dealing with!

I know, this guy is trying to look all innocent here.  Don't fall for it though.
He knows we are onto him.  First he runs away.  Then when that doesn't work he tries to be very still, thinking he can blend into the tree.
As soon as he sees that we are not going away, he turns all, "HELLO! MY NAME IS INIGO MONTOYA! YOU KILLED MY FATHER! PREPARE TO DIE"
This is just the tip of the iceberg.  They climb on top of the RV and throw acorns on the rig.  (Ok, here is where Nathan will say that is just the acorns falling from the trees but I know better!)  We hear their little feet scurrying all over the roof. I keep expecting to see one of them peeking at me through the skylight while I take my shower someday.

We are not scared though.  We will defend our little space here and our little dog.  Time will tell how this battle will end!

Living the life in Sunny again Florida!

Love it! We play the same squirrel games here... but I imagine it's more entertaining when they have Ava to torment, too!
