    Awww... :D

    I remember once reading an article in 'Omni' (is that still around?) about how squirrels had superb mapping & memory abilities... this little guy's wasting his talents.

    I'm pretty sure Omni has been out of print for a decade or more - too bad, because it was a lot of fun to read. :(

    And this is the third thread involving nuts I've seen so far today. Some of the quotes:
    sound all too familiar.

    It's good to have some funny news to discuss. The poor squirrel was just storing up for winter. Had the car been in a junk lot, the squirrel would have been golden with his storage spot. :D

    Yeah I was thinking the same thing when I read the thread title... Thinking to myself, "Oh, this can't be good." But it's thankfully about nuts this time and not any part of the male anatomy.

    When I was young, I used to have electric lines over my pool and when I woke up in the morning, I realised that a squirrel had felt from the wire in the pool during the night and drown because I found it lifeless little body floating on top of the water. It was happening like once every summer and each time I was floaded with pity for the poor animal. Of course, I was not the one having to take the cadaver out of the water...

    I appreciated this type of interest story. It brought some well needed comic relief, a nice smile. :D
