Life in the Fast Lane
Last Saturday, I learned from the Colorado Traveling Ducks that it was National Squirrel Appreciation Day. After meeting a fleet-footed squirrel in Manchester, I definitely have an appreciation for their speed and agility.
Did you know a squirrel moves fast? If you blink you’ll miss it.
That’s what almost happened to me.
I was admiring the view out of our Airbnb window when I thought I saw something moving. But, when I looked a second time, there was nothing there and I decided I was mistaken.
Then I saw it again.
Sure enough, it was a squirrel. He stopped just long enough on the wall for a single clear photo before he took off again.
The cheeky little guy was stealing nuts from a bird feeder in the tree,
and he wasn’t staying put long enough to share with anyone.
I was entranced, and watched for ages as he went back and forth.
His agility and graceful tail left me feeling a little envious,
until I remembered I never need to work that hard for my breakfast.
Thank goodness for that!
