My co-worker sent an email saying he would be late because he was trying to untie a squirrel tail knot.

I asked for a picture, and he delivered.

I was pressed into squirrel rescue this morning on my way out.

5 young squirrels got tangled in Christmas lights in my neighbor’s yard.

I should be in this afternoon.
