This guy thinks the crazy weather is somehow my fault. Just look at that stink-eye!
I'm fairly certain this is the first red squirrel that has decided to make Pixie Hill his home. He's very cute but is as mischievous as they come, and very grumpy. Our dog, Padfoot, chased him up a tree and he was so mad! He chattered and squeaked and made a huge fuss, thoroughly confusing poor Paddy who looked at me as if to say "What's this guys problem?"
Anyway we've named him Mr. Tibbles M. McNutt... or Mr. T for short.
A quick photo from last night. A small batch of fairy mail on it's way to Mrs. Butcher's kindergarten class.
The wee folk here were very excited to hear that the children were learning about fairies. They jumped at the chance to send some notes but Cecil, the mail room hobgoblin, sent them to the wrong department and the letters went on a misadventure. They look a bit ratty... hope the kiddies don't mind.
It's raining here, which means I'll go through my pot of tea in no time at all.
Have a beautiful day, no matter what the weather.
Perhaps Mr McNutt is looking for job as fairy mail man? Thank you for your wonderful blog. I'm afraid I have been a lurker (don't worry I'm in Australia!) but I so wanted to say how fun it is to pop by.ReplyDelete
That's funny that you should say that! I was thinking the same thing... that McNutt is vying for a position with the pixie post :) Thanks for popping by :)Delete
I so enjoyed your story. It lifted my spirits when I needed it. I'm looking forward to more adventures.ReplyDelete
I'm glad to hear it :)Delete
Omg!!! You had me laughing aloud with the stink eye comment!! He sure does look a bit pissy doesn't he! Thanks for the giggle Nichola!ReplyDelete
poor squirrel :-)ReplyDelete
I love to hear of all your adventures, lol.ReplyDelete
Greetings of the Day Nichola...ReplyDelete
I think my squirrel multitude are all of that McNutt family! Just two days ago we were graced with another wee one. Such a tiny baby...soooo cute too. Our bird population at the feeders gets pretty riled up over the families of furry friends grazing in THEIR restaurant. I do so enjoy your Pixie Hill adventures and drop by almost daily to que up for all of the adventures. Loved the fae mail...and particularly loved that they were a bit under the weather so-to-speak. Have a lovely adventurous day!
Normally our squirrels and birds tolerate one another but I watched this stinker chase a mourning dove the other day. He's trouble with a capital T!Delete
We are in Pennsylvania USA and have grey squirrels. I knew there were other colors but had not seen one in person - until just the other day. Was driving the grandkids to violin lessons and a BLACK squirrel ran in front of the car. Luckily it was a 25 mile an hour zone and I slowed down a bit for the kids to see him and he made it across easily. Is there a significance to a black squirrel crossing ones path?? lolReplyDelete
99% of the squirrels we see here are black. I posted a picture once and people were fascinated. I never realized they were uncommon in some areas as they are prolific here. I am fairly certain they are ALL cheeky, no matter the colour.Delete
