I put up a “No Soliciting” sign on my door about five years ago and since that time I’ve learned that either people (politicians, religious pamphlet types, contractors, but no Avon ladies [do they still exist?]) don’t know the meaning or they believe that they are exempt. If I put up a “No Panhandling” sign on my office window I suppose it would be merely decorative if that. This squirrel was waiting for me, the seed lady, to take a break and look outside my window and then hopefully give him or her seeds on the deck just like I do for Cider. But that didn’t work…
“Maybe if I sit on top of the shelter where the seed lady feeds that spoiled chipmunk she’ll take mercy on me.”
“Maybe if I just hang out under here she won’t know the difference.”
I’m not frugal when it comes to feeding the chipmunks. I buy them organic grapes and pounds and pounds of the finest preservative-free seeds I can find, so I do have to draw the line someplace!
