There are a lot more worthy observations about the weekend that I could include about love, peace, faith, family and the true meaning of Christmas, but I chose the two below for this blog today. I hope that you had a wonderful weekend! If you didn't, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let's talk that mess out.
#2 Squirrels are some committed lovers (and I absolutely LOATHE the word "lovers" but it's the only one that will do). Christmas morning I witnessed two cute squirrels chasing each other on the top of the fence. Delighted with my discovery of nature at it's best on such a magical morning, I pointed out the sweet little things to my 2 1/2-year-old son and mother-in-law. Just as I did, those two squirrels WENT TO TOWN right there in front of my staring baby boy for him and the whole world to see. I should have actually said that the male took the female and made her his...love slave. Given his excitement and extremely high level of adrenaline, the female began to fall off the fence. She was HANGING from the fence BY ONLY TWO OF HER DANG FEET trying to save her life with the MALE STILL ATTACHED AND TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS. I sure hope she found that Santa had left her a more sensitive mate when she returned home that day.
P.S. In case you are wondering, my little guy probably thought they were wrestling. My MIL and I both laughed QUITE A BIT. My 6-year-old came in and interrogated us about what in the HECK we thought was so funny. I am sure we said something about the squirrels telling knock-knock jokes (more like knock-knock-you-up jokes).
