no squirrel should die without a name...

...so I will call him Rico.

just because you gave him a name doesn't cover over the fact that you killed a squirrel!

I know! I felt sooo bad! It was 6:40am and "Jesus Paid It All" was blaring in my car and I was on the home stretch in the church parking lot (I think I was even joyously punching the sky as I sang) and then...it was the same color as the pavement, it looked like the pavement was moving...but it wasn't the pavement. It was Rico. I've never hit an animal before, let alone killed one...I even brake for ducks...I think I misted up...poor squirrel family. Poor poor Rico.

Unfortunately Jesus didn't pay it all for Rico...

It can't be as bad as the fact that my husband hit and killed a little white bunny the week before easter! Good thing our daughter is too young to pick up on things like that!

I testify that Rico was the bread winner. His poor family now has no one to bring home nuts, and bugs, and whatever else squirrels eat. It's a sad, sad day.

Wow, okay, Joann, who are the knife twisters on your blog? You've been made to look like that big crazy-mean dog that harasses all the fraggles on Fraggle Rock! Maybe you should make your peace with the squirrel community by living in a tree for a year. Sound good? So, when you come and visit will it be coffee and sugar beets (which makes for extremely attractive breath) or sodas and Drive-In movies? Get back to me... once your year has ended and you've taken a shower.

I'll go for both...how 'bout coffee, sugar beets and soda at the drive-in? Too weird? Hmm...yes, a shower would be nice. Once June hits perhaps I will:)
