The first batch of baby squirrels that were born in the truck air filter are out and about. They are cute, though the adults are already getting snitty about territory. An adult was trying to run off a baby, the chase ending up a large tree. The baby was around the side, skittled and startled the adult that thought it had "won" and ran off the baby. I laughed out loud. Did you know that squirrels do not like being laughed at? It whined at me, then started chattering. I laughed more. Then a squirrel across the property started chattering back, leapt to a tiny tree that had thin limbs and went bouncing, gently, down to the ground. Of course I laughed harder and the adult squirrel I first insulted got madder, chattering even louder at me. It had no sense of humor.
Two babies eating seeds, above. Their tails are shorter and less bushy than the adults. Of course they are smaller.

Today Miss Maggie had an "oops!" on the vinyl flooring, a rather bizarre happy accident. I took this lovely mess to the vet and they tested it. What a foul job. She has some sort of bacterial thing going on. We had been dealing with this for a month off and on. The downside is possible side-effects of the meds. She will get Pepto-Bismal along with the meds to buffer the stomach effects. Hopefully she will have no other possible side-effects and this will clear up the problem. Poor old lady has had a hell of a time. I am glad this is all it is, nothing worse. I am a bit paranoid when she gets sick.
I got new glasses yesterday. Himself says I look different but does not say "how" I look different. I will have to re-do my mug shot. Lucky you. I like the new glasses shape, style and color. I got the transitional lenses so I have sunglasses when I go out. Sadly, insurance no longer covers line-less bifocals. We are lucky to have the insurance as it is, so I cannot complain. I like them a lot.
Knitting a hat to felt. I cannot find a ball small enough to use for a head-form. A 7" to 8" ball would be fine for a normal adult-sized head. I may try the thrift shops for an old wig head, though I do not think they exist anymore.
I have set aside the beaded box while I am knitting. I needed a change. With the new glasses I can see much better. Damn, wrinkles and such are very clear. Selective clear sight would be much more preferable.
You can go back to sleep now.
