I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever shall thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Matthew 16: 19

A gray squirrel in his kingdom
Might be wiser than some...
The sharpness of his worth
From the mind he is given,
Is found to be driven.
For to find food on earth....

Whoever holds the key
If he claims he is hungry....
Is bound to loosen the lock
Off the suet block:)
Poetry by me, AJP

My husband had just set the suet block out on July 13th and the squirrels found their way to it
before the birds discovered it...One of the little red squirrels almost drowned in the rain on the feeder that same evening but it was determined to eat its share of suet before it was all gone...The gray squirrel seen here finished it off on the 14th...He wasn't modest about it either nor does he look malnourished ...We might have to ask him to join us on our power walks:) On second thought, judging by his legs I think he is way ahead of the game..He's been there ....done that.
