Meet Mr. Goop - The Gluttonous Squirrel

As I was making my coffee this morning, I looked out the kitchen window and saw Mr. Goop hanging out in the tree with a frozen hot dog!! (The high today was 16º!!) I wonder where he found it. The only thing I can think is I live in a neighborhood with other Mr. Goops who tossed their leftovers. LOL I am constantly seeing squirrels in my yard with big wads of food and can't for the life of me figure out where they're getting it.

I remember learning this poem about manners when I was young and every time I encounter gluttony or poor manners, it comes back.

Just a couple close-ups here since the details are a bit hard to see in the collage.



Hope you are enjoying your weekend and finding a good treat to eat!

  7. I didn't realize squirrels could be carnivorous! Hey, when you're hungry you'll eat just about anything, eh?

    I LOVE to watch the squirrel drama unfolding daily in our yard, and we - my husband mainly - keeps them fed.

    Loved the poem too. :D
