Squirrels

So I haven't felt like I had any thing really special to write about until just now. At work we have a tree out back and Dr. has a little feeder on one of the branches that she fills with hazelnuts for all the squirrels in the area. On the deck she keeps a tupperware container that has a flip up lid to hold the hazelnuts so its easy to pour into the feeder. Today I met what very well could be the smartest squirrel in the world. He decided that the hazelnuts in the tree weren't fresh enough for him so he hopped over to the deck and climbed ontop of the tupperware container. It took him a minute or so of scratching and biting at the lid but he got it open! Then he just sat on the container for a good five minutes reaching in, grabbing a handfull of nuts and eating them. It was so so so funny and so cute! I love my squirrels!
