Suicide Squirrels

The other day I turned into my complex to find a dead squirrel in the middle of the road and another squirrel standing there starring at it, sad. I slowed down as I approached the squirrel in mourning, and he wouldn't move.

I slowing rolled toward him, and he wouldn't move.

Finally, I had to stop right in front of the street funeral because this damn squirrel would not leave his fellow squirrel's side.

I backed up, and got as far to the right as I could as not to disturb the moment; or get squirrel guts on my car.

Since then, I have turned into my complex many other times and there have been two other instances where a squirrel jets into the middle of the road as I approach the spot of the vehicular squirrel slaughter. If the squirrels could make a little cross with flowers and a picture to put there, I'm sure they would.

This morning, I almost ran over one of them. For a moment, I thought I did and actually had to stop, open my door and check to see if I had.

I'm not quite sure why the squirrels in my complex aren't happy. But they need to stop running out in front of my car!

Squirrels... I dislike them, but I dislike squirrel guts on my car even more. LOL.

... this time of year, that squirrel was probably trying to figure out if he could mate with the "stationary" one....

... trust me, those nasty bastards' depravity knows no bounds....

... and yeah, I second what Mrs. Who said....

I suspect now that the squirrels were blown away by Ivan, and TGOO and Mom have been stuck with... rabbits, that TGOO may hate rabbits more. I don't think he actually MISSES the squirrels... oh no no no... but bunnies are ranking right up there... I suspect.
