Even the squirrels are feasting
After the harvest moon, the local community gathers together at the Indian rock schoolhouse to celebrate the end of summer, play softball, and praise all our teachers. A couple hundred showed up today and enjoyed BBQ chicken with fixings cooked by the Lions Club. Back at home...on my deck, the acorns seem to pelt down in angry bursts. When I feel brave enough I cover my head and sweep them up. I think I will gather a few of the nuts for the future... an art project, a squirrel meal, a forest, Christmas gifts?
