“I know where you live.”

It was a beautiful day today (in spite of two earthquakes) so I decided to go to Franklin Canyon to take pictures of the dragonflies. As soon as I got there, I saw a squirrel going up a tree. As soon as he saw me, he stopped dead in his tracks and started looking at me. He stared for a while and even leaned in a little, as if he recognized me. Was I the one who sent him on the metal basket ride down the canyon for stealing my tomatoes? Ostracized to the Squirrel Sanctuary? I wasn’t going to let him intimidate me so I stared him down. “What are you lookin’ at?” I said, standing my ground. “You don’t scare me. You miss my tomatoes don’t you, you mangy, rat-faced, no-good, low-life, beady-eyed, scum-sucking, tomato-stealing squirrel.” He took one last look and moved up the tree but he waited there until I left, and watched me walk away as if to say, “I know where you live. See you soon, cupcake.”

    You never now if he was the squirrel you trapped and was thrown, oops…I mean dropped off at the Canyon. But the way you described him having he’s eyes on you maybe he was…lol…never the less staring that squirrel down scared him it seems. Good for showing him who’s boss 😉

    Ha, Ha… I love reading your blog. This was a great way to start a Monday. You have to let us know if a squirrel shows up at your house again. 🙂
