    I missed him, he missed me, now we're both posting

    Almost hit a squirrel today -- close call! Didn't hit him, but got his picture, which I'm posting here today. He's probably home safe now in his squirrel house, posting something on the Squirrel Fifty+ forum. I think he got my picture as well.

    He's telling his friends, "I was out looking for nuts--and, man, did I hit the jackpot."
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    I have heard that the US has some dangerous Animals. And All DG can come up with is a Squirrell.

    Got it now- DG has been out on the trails again To see whats on the other side of the hill. Plenty of scary animals in them thar woods, Never know- you might see- a Rabbit- Or a Fox- Might even see the ocasional Deer- but Squirrells- Thats Scary.

    I bet that left a mark.

    Squirrel vs. car..............

    I spent my teenage years in an orphanage which had 'house-parents' running the cottages we lived in. Our house-parent was a wonderful older lady who had saved for years to buy a small car....perhaps a rambler. One day she was driving through the campus and a squirrel ran out in front of her. Being the kind person she was, she swerved to avoid the squirrel, went off the road, rolled and totaled her car. Sad but true.

    Its the Squirrel of Caerbannog!

    That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!
    He's got huge, sharp-- eh-- he can leap about-- look at the bones!

    That's nothing - this one chased me for 1/2 a mile, and laughed as I sped away......

    DG's squirrel is trying out for the squirrel olympics. She's trying out for the famous "jumping through the bicycle wheel" competition. Red Baron posted a picture of last years loser. US squirrels have won all of the last four contests. But the British squirrels are planning a come-back. They plan on jumping through the spokes on both wheels of a tandem. Be careful out there Stapfam!

    Ain't worried about Squirrells on the Tandem- If a weedy little animal wants to jump out in front of the "T"- they don't stand much chance. Last year we T Boned a car, 2 other bikes and that tree that keeps jumping out in front of us. Haven't even bent a rim or broken a spoke yet. Mind you-If I start seeing them in the numbers I saw Last year on the Cycle Trails- I might be getting a Blunderbuss mounted on the front to cut their numbers a bit.
