My daughter-in-law informed me he has gotten away with two of their bird feeders. He has actually taken them and scampered off with them. Vamoose they are gone. My son laughed when he showed up again as she ranted on about his thieving antics. I of course, got out my camera.
We have had our fair share of squirrels at our feeders over the years. I have bought into some of the devices that swear they are squirrel proof, only to find them performing amazing circus acts to reach their goal. Finally, a few years ago, I gave in and I bought them a feeder of their own and some food. This helps, it is not full proof, but it helps.
I like their persistence. Their drive (or maybe it's a need) to come back day after day, figure out the obstacles presented before them and at least try. You have to give credit where credit is due. It is a lot like that for me here in this space. I come back, as much out of need as want, and keep trying. I keep searching to find the perfect schedule, topics, organization, lesson plan or feeder (if you will), and yet almost daily I am presented with stumbling blocks, many which have me performing just like this squirrel.
For me this is all part of the process I think and possibly the best part of the journey. I fear if someone put out a feeder just for me; a plan to follow, or and outline, it would only make me want to come less and less to the feeder, because I will admit, some of the fun is in the challenge.
And, I hate to imagine what would become of me than. . .
it is the start of our weekend,
hope yours is grand. . .
