Squirrel Attack!

We have crazy wild squirrels living in our backyard.  In the past few weeks the antics we have witnessed have been memorable and the cause of much laughter.  For instance, this afternoon Lindsey and I saw a bold squirrel attempting to eat corn pops out of a soggy box on our back porch.  Let me explain: we’ve had something of an ant infestation this spring.  There is an entire colony of ants, complete with an underground labyrinthine home, and they prefer our food over anything else.  We’ve been doing battle for a month or two now, and recently a hoard of them was discovered in Laura’s corn pops box.  Rather than allow the little nuisances have their way with our sustenance, we put the box outside on our back porch.  Then it rained today, so the box was falling apart, and this squirrel was pulling it into shreds to get at the cereal, but every time he’d rip another piece of the box away, it would startle him and he’d jump back.
