ya say want SQUIRRELS?

dear BigShamu and Moi, i made squirrels today instead of doing the illustration for the ONLY paying customer i have left in Atlanta. grrrherhaha. I will still make deadline tho'. One has BIG brown eyes and ears that sit up high; the other has smaller eyes and ears on the side of his head more like a real squirrel. both have big chew up your attic teefs. one has white fur on his head, the big brown-eyed one has fur on his ears. grrrherhaha. what do you think? which is the better squirrel?

I think your animal ball idea is awesome. I love animals. I would say they are both cuuute. In my opinion, I like the blue one better, but if the brown eyed one had a brown nose, then it would equal the other. I guess my tastes like the nose on this particular critter matching the eyes. Very Cute!

I too, like the squirrels, but, if Thursday next is serious about ridding her yard of them?
Get some squirrel recipes (I hear they taste nutty...) and, when you're done eating, throw the bones around your backyard and the others will figure out what you did.
The smart ones leave, and the dumb ones?
You ate them.

Persolly I can't wait till our forestis big enough to attract some.
Ol' Steve used to eat them, but, I want them around to pester the racoons out of teh barn and area.
Cute as they are, and, dang! Even clean enough to have a specific area for defacating in...the darned thing is, it's always an area I've cleaned to store things that I don't really want racoon poop on. (lil beggars!)

OK, this may seem a social visit, but, it isn't so much that as a request.
Only when you get the time, hough.
Don't just drop everything and go running over (yeahhhhh, sure)

But, I do have a terrible way with te English language sometimes and you had commented on me biting folks out of that one blog...
(I don't really bite like that...)

(heck. How could I? I wear store bought choppers)

Anyway, I definately have an opinion, but, still don't think folks should tell others who to vote for...(let every woman and man decide for themselves who)... so, I think I have a solution that will be nice (be nice, boneman) and still let some people blow off steam for my opinions on their comment boxes....(and I won't even say 'who' either) but, dang.
I like my own avenue of life and don't really want to get sucked into it like last time. I went off in a rough huff, to be sure, but, what I did wasn't any better'n what....oh, whatever.

So, I changed it up some.
Made a place for that kind of commenting and such.
So....the request is to wander over and tell me if
i stayed 'civil' myself.
(odd thing to ask a person, eh?)

Cute. Reminds me of the time the lady behind us tied little glass birds out in her tree and my brother and I took 'em all out with our BB gun. Hell of a shot too - they were pretty small.

We are not the same person. Java enjoys using the word "through" while I prefer "thru". Oh and she's pro squirrel, enveloping the little buggers in the warm embrace of her bosom while I enjoy throwing black walnuts at them, trying to see just how good their reflexes really are.

Hah! You a genius, even if I hate the lil' forkers! I like the one with the bigger eyes, most definitely.

(Sorry, it's taken me so long to get here. I was gone all day yesterday and then my power went out and only just came back on an hour ago. FREAKIN' HELL!!!!! Deadlines looooooooom!)

I do believe these ornaments are bound to make you famous.

I'm waiting for the devil squirrel carnival punk. That way Phos would really have something to shoot at with his bb gun without all the squirrel art ball breakage. Oh man, I see a whole new line of products. Carnival Punk Cubical Protectors. Much better than those gargoyles.

Don't mind me, I'm all hyped up on caffeine and Chinese food...

shamu: im still confused but i'll take ya both! squirrel lovers or no.

moi: from your lips to God's ears!

shamu: carnival punk? you mean those clowns you punch?

Carnival punks were the sort of stuffed simple doll that you threw baseballs at to try and knock down. Here's an example: http://www.hillsdalebarnantiques.com/photos/punk1.jpg

shamu: oh yeah..........hey wait! you wanna punch a squirrel! dont make me sign in as col maximum damage USSC/mdc of the flying first battalion of the squirrel corps! youve been warned lady.

Blogger The Big Shamu said...

Calm down Col., I already have 3 carnival punks and would NEVER punch any of them. But my cubical does need some protection and lord knows a Devil Squirrel Circus Punk would do the trick.
Now if the squirrels start developing a taste for the contents of my Hallowed Vault of Bacon there could be trouble...
