Riley's Christmas

Yes, I've come to terms with the little thief. She (I'm pretty sure) has mostly stopped chewing on the house, and she's so darned cute... A few antics pictured through dirty, triple-pane glass. Not good shots, but you'll get the idea.

Yes, I've named her Riley.

Yes, I gave her a Christmas present. She got a handful of walnuts delivered to the deck railing. Do you think she appreciated them?

Sometimes there's nothing to do except give in to the cute. She will probably tell all her friends about the nice lady who gives out free walnuts.

Riley is a thief.

Is a thief Riley?

well they do say if you can't beat em' join em' :) She is cute and I'm sure she did appreciate your gift. She looks like she's enjoying it. Kind of looks like she's saying grace before she digs in

She's adorable, Joan, and you have a heart of gold. ;o) Probably the best Christmas for her, ever. LOL!

Here is my theory on squirrels: You can't fight them. Once you just accept that they are gonna eat from your feeder, they don't bother you anymore.

I love all the old ladies in the bird feed aisle, moaning and groaning about their "squirrel problem." Me...I don't have one. I feed them along with everyone else. No problem. I think they actually are far more entertaining than the birds.

I hope Riley stops doing damage now that she's your friend.
