Years back, Judy and Greg put a bird house up on the front of their house next door. The Honeysuckle vine immediately started to curl around it, but birds did not nest there. No, squirrels did. Here the squirrels are the size of Ontario chipmunks, and the babes are even smaller. We decided long ago that the wee things were good dog-sitters for Daisy, as she would trot over across the bridge between our two homes, and sit down on the front deck, just staring up at the cute faces peering out. Each year there are new squirrels born, and each year the memories of how it all began come sweetly back.
