Flying Squirrels

Have you ever noticed those pesky squirrels hopping from treetop to treetop?

I swear.

I hate that.

I think there really is such a thing as flying squirrels, though. And they play minor league baseball about two miles from Our house. At a baseball diamond that folks want to tear down. And they shoot off BIG FIREWORKS before their games and on the holidays.

Guess it’s time to hunker down in the basement again. And again. I hate fireworks.


  • Like most dogs, I’m not too keen on fireworks. And thunderstorms. And loud noises.
  • I hate loud noises.
  • But I love to watch flying squirrels. Not the team that plays baseball, the ones that leap from tree to tree.
  • I especially like it when they fall and knock themselves out. But then they get right back up again.
  • Those squirrels, they’re not too swift in the brain department are they? Or are they?

    Stuart, if you are patient those flying squirrels just might come down to find food. It’s hard to eat on the fly. Patience my wee man, patience.

  3. The squirrels seem to be super busy this time of the year. They make us nuts too, Stuart!
    I hate fireworks as much as you do! Why did they ever have to be invented?!

    OOOOHHHH I have those flying squirrels too and I can’t take it. they run along the fence and I hop after then…I try to get them but can’t and they know it! Now we have cats in the trees…I need to grow wings!!! Firecrackers don’t bother me and neither does thunder but the stove bothers me…I don’t like the fire alarm either when she burns stuff.
