Squirrel Appreciation Day

Though the rest of American neglected squirrels in the excitement of Monday's Inaugural celebrations, around here we did celebrate National Squirrel Appreciation Day.  I set out some treats for Pesky to enjoy.
Pesky eventually brought his lady friend to enjoy the largesse.  Tiger and Lucy eagerly watched, intrigued by the outdoor creatures.
Before the celebration was over, more than half a dozen squirrels had turned up to score a share of the snack action.  I couldn't get pictures of them because they are skittish and don't realize that I mean no harm.  
I've a soft spot for the creatures who live in my backyard, even if they do eat my garden and snack on my tulip bulbs.  There's got to be some good karma in that.
