In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind?
Job 12: 10

When finger like gloves
Hold the food it loves...
With long claws
Underneath its paws,
And cups it in a reverent prayer...
This creature is more than aware
In whose hands he is truly blest...
Tho' we breathe the same air,
That is given to all mankind...
We tend to think we are best....
What is fed to our human mind
Is that a squirrel is just a pest.
Poetry by me AJP

Fox Squirrels normally have brown hands...but this one is different and has very light colored hands.. It came back again on the feeder today.. So far it has good manners and I don't see it fighting with other squirrels...It is one of the prettiest ones we've seen on our feeder and it is hard to think of this sweet little guy as a pest:)

We were gone for most of the afternoon, invited to a Christmas party with friends but will try to get caught up here as much as I can...
