The Attack of the Killer Squirrel
Hubby and I were sitting quietly in our living room on Sunday morning - reading the paper. I heard a rustling sound coming from our second bedroom (aka Hubby's studio). I was a little scared there might be a mouse or something in there - even though we live on the second floor - so I said, "Hubby - I heard a sound coming from the other room." Hubby bravely went to check it out and came face-to-face with a squirrel sitting on the window sill.....on the INSIDE of the room! Hubby screamed like a girl and quickly exited the room, pulling the door closed behind him. I came over to see what was going on, and Hubby carefully opened the door again and the squirrel was gone. Upon investigation, we noted a cantaloupe-sized hole in the screen where the squirrel (and probably his friends) had gnawed through . There is a tree right outside the window that has branches that reach right over like a bridge for the squirrels to reach the window. Hubby went right outside and cut the branches back so the little devils can't reach the window, and the window is closed until he fixes the screen. Needless to say, squirrels are NOT Hubby's favorite animals.
