Squirrels! We sure have PLENTY of squirrels here in Georgia. But instead of the little brown ground squirrels that many others have in their areas, we have little gray squirrels that love to play test the brakes on motor vehicles.

Isn't this guy super cute?! He's great fun to color, too. Again, I went with a fall theme - maybe in the heat of the summer, I was trying to cool off a little! We've had temps in the 90s since May.
