Stalking the Wild Squirrel - Part 3

I knew it! I just knew it! Squirrels are invading our world, and my yard! Just take a look at this article, titled: "Nut? What Nut? The Squirrel Outwits to Survive" in the Science Section of today's New York Times :

Here's part of what it says about those...well, pests: "The Eastern gray tree squirrel, or Sciurus carolinensis, has been so spectacularly successful that it is often considered a pest. The International Union for Conservation of Nature includes the squirrel on its list of the top 100 invasive species." (yep, I added that emphasis to "invasive").
What have I been tellin ya all along, folks? It doesn't take an "international union" to tell me who's invading my own backyard!

So my fellow squirrel chasers, what are we going to do about this? I think we better form our own union right now-before we're all livin in trees and speakin' "Squirrel-ese". Who wants to join up? Our first meeting is tonight, 9:00 sharp under the old Elm tree. I'll be waitin' for ya!

Bocci - it's me, Tank. I am Commander of the OWAS (operation whack-a-squirrel) Army. Maggie & Mitch alerted me to your blog in an urgent message this morning. Are you aware of the Great Squirrel War of 2009? We dogs were victorious and enjoyed several months of relatively squirrel-free living before there were rumors that the enemy was regrouping & planning a new attack. Things have been unsettled ever since. I appreciate your idea for a union, but trust me on this one... you can't negotiate with a squirrel! I'll try to be at your meeting tonight, but my tractor doesn't go very fast. Maybe if I don't take any pee breaks I'll be able to make it...

So that's how it all started!!! We want in on it!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

So glad you're "up for the chase" so to speak! Will see you all tonight under the Elm (given the recent increase in activity, it should be a nightly meeting, don't you think?!)
