Something I Do Everyday
Every day but Tuesday.
I watch the squirrels play!

Edit: Answer to Amrita's question - yes i do feed the squirrels. I have a couple of dishes right outside that door. I've read that a diet of peanuts & sunflower seeds is not very good for them. Raw peanuts in particular can make them sick. So i buy roasted, unsalted peanuts from the health food store, raw sunflower seeds, raw pumpkin seeds, & some nuts. (I can't afford to feed them too many nuts.) They seem to like this diet. Squirrels are very territorial. They chase each other a lot. Also, Mac & Jazz want to chase them very much. I had the door open a crack for fresh air last year before we got the screen. Mac got a paw out & patted the squirrel on the butt. That squirrel flew about 2 feet in the air & sat on the railing & chewed us out for half an hour!
I wanted a short post today! LOL Guess i talk so much i can't do short posts.
