Cabin Intruders....These Guys Are Nuts!

The gloomy, damp weather continued through yesterday and into this morning.
Needless to say, the farm is quite muddy.

I had a lot of time to knit yesterday, as Hubbs had shoulder surgery.
I spent the day away from the farm
and finished this....


I started its mate last night.

While leaving the farm and driving out of the driveway the other day,
I happened to notice a grey squirrel making his way up the side of the old log cabin...
in a vertical climb.
Intrigued, I stopped to watch.


Higher and higher he went...until he disappeared under the eaves of the roof.


This all happened before I could get my camera out and focussed.
However, I have recreated the scene for you...


Upon closer inspection I found this....


perfect access to the attic of the log cabin.
That explains the abundance of walnut shells that we constantly find in the cabin.
For years I have wondered how the squirrels found their way inside.
Now, I know.... first hand!

These creatures are quite resourceful!
I might add, too, that our squirrels here on the farm are quite plump!

That's hilarious! Not that he found his way in, but your recreation. So clever.
Hope Hubbs has a quick recovery!
