Our little friend, Stubby, the squirrel disappeared for a couple weeks in December of 2020, but made a brief appearance again late in the month. Just about the time we had given up on seeing him again, he made a quick path to the bird feeder – tried to climb the pole and quickly descended and retreated to from whence he had come. I wonder if a squirrel might stick to the bird feeder pole if he stuck his tongue out on it.

Stubby is called Stubby because of the short tail he has. He’s also rather aggressive and won’t stand for being bullied.

At first we wondered if he was in a self imposed quarantine. It would’ve been about the right amount of time. Then we wondered if he might be a she and was out of the food chain because she had become the food chain to a bunch of baby squirrels.

I guess we’ll never know for sure. It’s just very reassuring to know that Stubby is still alive and kicking. He/she has provided us with lots of entertainment over the past few months and even created some ideas for a children’s book series.



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  1. I think Stubby has a new role—your muse for an entire series—heck I can even see a Disney movie!!

  2. One of the things I have enjoyed doing this fall/winter is watching our furry friends racing around the back yard and woods chasing one another to get more acorns. After about a foot of snow, I hadn’t seen them in a week or two only to catch one scampering across the backyard. Our dog usually lets us know when they are around.
