The Waffler!

My 10-year-old grandson and I have been on a mission to try any chicken sandwich offered from restaurants in our area. He never had a Chick-fil-A sandwich before, so our mission yesterday was to go try one and see how it measured up to the ones that we've already tried. I had to drive about an hour to find a Chick-fil-A, but we ordered and was through the line in minutes. We pulled out of there and found a quiet spot to eat, parked in front of an empty office building.

There was some grass separating our parking spot from access the road, and there was this squirrel sitting on his hind legs nibbling away on something, sitting right in the middle of the road. Someone came up with there car and he didn't budge, so they tooted the horn and he moved after that - toward me. He stopped a few feet from my driver-side door, and I called to him using a squeaky kissing sound, which usually works for many animals. Well, he perked right up and looked me right in the yes and came my way! He ran under the front of my truck, and I couldn't see him. I was done with my sandwich by then, and had nothing to offer him, so I said, "Hey Tristan, give me a small piece of your bun," which I tossed out of the window. The squirrel immediately went for the little tidbit of roll that I offered him. Surprised to see this, I tossed out a big waffle fry, and he immediately picked it up and started chowing down.

Peculiar behavior, this. You'd never see this sort of thing with a country squirrel. Then again, there's not many chances to get a waffle fry out where I live, so it stands to reason.

Not to be pedantic but that's a doe. Squirrels will eat almost anything. I feed the ones in my pecan tree a steady diet of BB pellets.

Ha ha squirrels are so well fed around here that they get fattened up to the point they can't get across the streets fast enough. Thump thump.

That's Punxsutawney Phil's Italian cousin, Napoli Nate. When Nate emerges from his hole on February 2nd, and sees pizza, everyone gets six more weeks of antipasto.
