My dad and the squirrels have a "love-hate" relationship... they LOVE his bird feeders and he HATES it! The rodents have called a ceasefire in their ongoing war in order to celebrate my dad's 75th birthday. They have sent an envoy bearing a peace offering and a gift. They even learned how to spell his name with twigs (they must be genius squirrels!). And, of course, the chocolate cake with peanut butter buttercream filling was a nice touch as well.
I can't say that my dad is any more squirrel-friendly now, but he sure did like his birthday surprise!
