Life and writing, serious and humorous, old and young, past and present: it's all part of the fabric.
Ohhhhh! Squirrels occasionally drive me batty, but those babies make my heart melt! I'm sure their mother will take good care of them now.
What a storm. It missed us, but there was a tornado in Wayne County that really wrecked 4 houses, flattened a barn and knocked down trees. I hope the Mom found her baby squirrels.
Oh my! I hope they make it and live happy squirrel lives, but they are not the most adorable babies. ;)
Thank goodness you were around to help those baby squirrels. That tree appeared hollow so no wonder it blew down!
I've never seen a baby squirrel. Amazing. Has the mother returned to them?
Yes, the mother has returned and moved them.
What a story, Sharon! I can't say the babies are cute. How wonderful you could help save them. Have you read Cynthia Rylant's book GOOSEBERRY PARK? It is also a squirrel-saving story.
I tracked your storm on radar as it swept across eastern NYState and headed over VT, NH to Maine. Around 5:30 PM we got the rain, and thunder, but that was about it. Indeed, you got a violent edge of it. Be positive... think: Firewood!
Oh, the photo. Look at those thick little legs. It's amazing that you were able to rescue them. Sorry about the damage though.
Glad you're safe! And glad those wee baby squirrels are back with mommy! They are adorable! :) I'd be distracted too...
Ohmygosh! I've never seen baby squirrels before!
“Maybe we’re here only to say: house, bridge, well, gate, jug, olive-tree, window--at most, pillar, tower--but to say them, remember, oh! to say them in a way that the things themselves never dreamed of so intensely.” --Rilke
