and then the squirrels came and they took over the whole world



The plan was just to post a few pictures of the four-legged cheerfulness around our place lately…


Kona loving on my mom,



the brand new foal next door… hiding under mama,



the herd’s response to all the newborn hoopla


(note the tongue sticking out… per usual)


and my parents’ 80 pound sweethearts who think they are lapdogs,





(not even kidding a little bit about the lapdog part…)




But then it all went awry when we opened the door to leave for church yesterday.

And this beautiful mourning dove was laying stunned on our porch.  Blood and a telltale smudge on the window.




Injured eyes and a suspected broken beak.  Mr. Daddy caved after two days of me begging fretting and Mr. Dove is now at an animal rescue.



But the real critter story?

Was all Julie’s fault.


Julie (WifeMomNurse) and her husband (TheDamageIsDone) were posting silly photos on eachother’s Facebook walls.


Swayed by what all the cool kids were doing, I posted the most random thing I could find in my photo files… on Mr. Daddy’s wall.



And suddenly… Facebook (as well as my email notifications)…




I could not possibly tag everyone who ended up part of the epic collection that formed on my wall… dozens of squirrel photos and vids were somehow linked back to us.  We sat and LMSO (laughed our squirrels off) for three days straight.


There were a lot of confused innocent parties who politely inquired as to why my wall was overrun with the rodents…


(photos available via Google… but don’t say I didn’t warn you!)


This one was quickly dubbed a Florida/California squirrel:



With the heatwave crushing Georgia, Shana claimed this one:



Roll Tide:

Roll Tide






Southern Squirrel




Another Florida winner:












Exceptionally useful:





Stan Lee


Mr. Daddy’s family:



Rachel’s family:



Itty Bit’s family:




And then one of my own traumatic Google finds… (remember, I warned you!):


Yes, an actual mounted squirrel butt.  Your life is now complete.
You’re welcome.



So if someone says, “there’s a squirrel for that”… you’ll know where it came from.


Thanks for being able to make us laugh – I feel like you guys really get us… y’know?  Who else would tag me with this?


FB friendship

Bethany said...

So you went a googled squirrel butt didn't you? It's the little things that make awesome friends. Still keeping you in our prayers.

And those horses are beautiful. Love the shot you got of the new foal. Which horse has it's tongue out? Too stinkin' funny!

Kmama said...

The one that makes me laugh the most is the one that you titled, "Mr. Daddy's family." ;-)

Mr. Daddy said...

Yep, things tend to get a little Squirrely around here :)

Foursons said...

Oh Mr. D. you just HAD to say it, didn't you?! Bwhahahaha. I've been waiting for this post. I knew it was coming and I don't envy all the work that went into it. So...is that traveling gas still being pesky?

Emmy said...

What in the world is up with that squirrel butt!?! Why would someone do that?? Too funny and weird. Ryder loved all of the pictures of the horses.

Mr. Daddy's family pic reminds me of a country song that was out a few years back.

I think it went "Gimmie-a-gimmie-a-gimmie a redneck squirrel"


Angie Vik said...

These are all so cute and clever. How do people come up with this stuff. I loved the Southern squirrel and Mr. Daddy and Itty Bit's family. Thanks for a good laugh.

Annmarie Pipa said...

hash love the fun pictures!!!

Lexie Loo, Lily Boo, and Dylan Too! said...

Now that is funny!
So glad you saved Mr. Dove!

GunDiva said...

I love all the squirrels - they're cute and all, but I really, really, really love the picture of Momma P and Kona.

Jess said...

Southern squirrel kills me. How much wine do you suppose a person has to consume in order to invest the time to photoshop THAT!?
