Double Trouble

Every other day or so I am going through all my photos to get rid of superfluous (read: bad) images and edit those I have forgotten about. The cool air and little bit of rain we got on Saturday must've cleared my head. I don't feel as foggy as I have been. 

Late one June evening hubby and I took Chance for a walk. On the previous night my husband spotted an owl in a grove of trees, so that's what we were looking for. Instead, these little comedians kept us entertained for a good 15 minutes. 
Play with me!
I said PLAY! darnit!
Let's pretend we're international spies.
Shhhh....I think I hear someone. Stay still.....don't move. I'll protect you.
Tee hee.
I tried to do the mouse-over thing so you could see the original; however, CSS/Javascript is not my strong suit.
But I think you get the idea. :)
Fifteen minutes of this is better than 30 minutes of any show on TV right now. Hope everyone has a great week! I will be out of pocket from Thursday to Sunday enjoying much cooler temps in beautiful California!

P.S.
This little pictorial is inspired by The Run*A*Round Ranch Report and Reena at Missing Moments. Thanks, ladies! And if you haven't yet, you should really go check out their funny blogs.

I thought I recognized a theme I had seen somewhere else. Thanks for shielding my eyes from whatever was going on under the "blanket." I'm so innocent and naive. ;)

This is a wonderful collection. Reena is indeed the queen of these captioned photos but you sure give her a run for the money. Nicely done.

Stickhorsecowgirls said...

Great pics--I love the antics of squirrels! I'm not one of those who puts up squirrel proof bird feeders. Often I get more entertainment from watching the squirrels play!
Thanks for stopping by Stick Horse Cowgirls! Glad to have discovered your blog!

Sara said...

Fantastic captures, they're so gorgeous and funny, love your captions to go along. I think I'd much rather watch the antics of animals than TV!

TexWisGirl said...

came back to say congrats on your POTW!

Bossy Betty said...

Gotta love those squirrels! Congrats on your POTW!

Daniel said...

Congratulations on being a recipient of the POTW award!

Your images and sense of humour are wonderful. I whole-heartily agree, watching critters and bird behaviour can be very entertaining. It's definitely a learning experience too.

Thank you for sharing. :-)

Daniel said...

J'aime vos ├ęcureuils comiques. :-)

King of New York Hacks said...

I'd rather watch these squirrels for hours than jersey shore for 5 minutes ! Fantastic photos !

Midlife Jobhunter said...

Wow! How fun was that. Enjoyed the photos and the commentary. Well deserved POTW. Congrats.

Barb said...

I cannot believe you have talking squirrels there! Also, they do seem a lot more entertaining than TV, even if they don't say anything. Congrats on POTW.

Linda said...

Adorable! Love the dialog.
Visiting from Hilary's place.
