Feeding the hungry... squirrels!
For some reason Pat has had a crisis of conscience lately when it comes to squirrels. I have no idea why, but suddenly he's become concerned for their welfare and has decided to feed them! Of course this required a lot of research, because that's the kind of guy Pat is ;^) So after much thought and deliberation, he bought a five pound bag of pumpkin seeds online and a big ugly bowl from the thrift store, and a couple of days ago he laid out a big feast for the little buggers. And literally within 30 seconds this squirrel was chowing down. We thought it was so funny (and astounding, really), I had to get my camera out and snap a few pictures. What a cute little guy! And for the record, pumpkin seeds are very good for squirrels, and here's your proof that squirrels really, REALLY like them.
