As I was walking to the lake for a morning meditation, my affection for squirrels was reincarnated. In the garbage receptacle by the path was a furry-tailed silhouette with a huge chunk of food in its mouth. When the squirrel heard me approaching it froze just long enough for me to catch it snacking.

There is also a piece in Sunday’s New York Times Metro section, “Gray Squirrels, New York 's Furry Cache Machines."
I like writing and reading about these quirky creatures who chitter and chatter, then scram and suddenly re-appear to scavenge for more.
