I’m Popular?

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.ย  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.”

“Please?!?!”

“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!

    1. The curious thing is that we’ve had more acorns on the ground than usual this fall so there’s plenty of food to go around. I guess forbidden fruit is seedier, or something like that!
