I Will Get you, Bad Red Squirrel

One day I headed downtown to drop the little one off to preschool when my Dad happened to stop by to drop me some corn on the cob. I love corn on the cob. Anyways, I was not gone very long and when I came home to see the corn on the cob sitting on the steps of my deck I figured it could wait a minute before I brought it inside.

I had my hands full and I was lazy, not to mention I figured grabbing an old shopping bag would make more sense than trying to juggle all of those ears of corn by myself. So I went inside, got distracted maybe fifteen minutes and came out to see the corn had been eaten ... just one ear of corn was all messed up as you can see in the image above.

I look over and who do I see? But a red squirrel who is happily staring at me refusing to run from me because he wanted my corn on the cob. I don't think so. This is not the last sighting of Mr/Mrs Red Squirrel {whichever it is}. It has been known to be scratching around on the deck while I am in the kitchen making me look outside only to see it on the deck railing staring back at me.

This red squirrel is taunting me and I will get it. Some how. Some Way. He will be gotten.
