Scruffy Throws A Party - Part 1

Spring cleaning time is here! Scruffy was doing an excellent job on the windows today, (Reggie Girl will be glad to know that he is a very industrious worker.) when he saw a couple of old friends coming up the front walk.

He scampered to his room to put on his very stylish hat and glasses, and to grab his favorite nut. He wanted to remind them that he was not just any old scruffy squirrel.

It was a thrill to see "Limber Legs Laura", who had just swung in from the Kalama zoo.

He hugged his good buddy, Hound Dog Hank, and knew that they would soon be having a howling good time. Laura and Hank said, How about it, Scruffy!? Lets have a Party!!!

So, they called all of the gang together to reminisce about old times and share a few laughs............To be continued.

Scruffy Comes Home

Scruffy has been missing for awhile. Today, as I was preparing to go to river to meet Bryan and Ethan for a little fishing, SCRUFFY CAME HOME!!!!

He parked his scooter on the front porch and knocked on the door with his big acorn. What a surprise! My bushy tailed buddy decided that he would tag along and spend the evening on the river with us.

It was good to see him holding his little fishing pole again. He might be a squirrel, but he is not a squirrely fisherman.

Scruffy caught a Spotted Sea Trout and a Pin Fish on his first day back.

Of course, he is always willing to do the dirty part of fishing (cleaning the catch). Sometimes, I think he enjoys cutting up those fish more than he should. He had a strange glint in his eye as he grabbed the fillet knife.

When all of the work was done, Scruffy and I headed home. It was unseasonably cool tonight, so he snuggled up inside my jacket and we were happy. Welcome home, Scruffy!
